We called ahead to Lucy's to ensure that there would be availability and that they were a casual restaurant. They said that they were slow tonight and very casual just 'no bathing suits'. We arrived in summer dresses for the ladies and polos with cargo / boating shorts for the guys.
The host tried to seat us at the bar and didn't seem to want to sit us near anyone else. (Our casual attire was on par for the average group. The restaurant had maybe 5 seated tables and 8 empty ones. We were only a party of 5, and they were all 6 seat tables) When we said that we didn't like the table he intended for us, he said 'I am saving THESE tables for call aheads' (these tables meaning pretty much every table in the restaurant)
At that point the waitress ran over and invited us to sit wherever we wanted as they were slow and got us to a comfortable table. (The 'call aheads', of course, never arrived, as we were the 2nd to last group to enter the restaurant.)
Said host guy, at this point, just shrugged and sat at the bar drinking a beer. (with some kitchen help, as they were watching a baseball game)
After that unpleasant experience, the rest of dinner went very well. The food was very good. Seafood is obviously the main attraction but a member of my party ordered a steak and said that it was cooked perfectly and delicious. With a few exceptions, our waters were constantly filled (and my iced tea), and we enjoyed a fine dinning experience.
Prices are a little high, mostly because of the area. All the paintings on the wall are for sale, which seemed a little low brow to me (despite the $1000+ price tags), but overall a good restaurant.
