“So-so.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Although I love their wine variety (and the fact that you get to choose glass sizes), and the idea behind the restaurant, I've found the food here to be lacking.
Had shrimp & grits, and the shrimp were tiny, flavorless, and obviously frozen. The gravy was bland. The only thing I loved on my plate was the grits, and I always love creamy grits.
This isn't the only meal I've been unsatisfied with here, but the only one I can remember clearly. $19 shrimp and grits should blow me away, not make me want to eat somewhere else.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback on your recent visit. I am so glad that you enjoy being able to choose different size glasses of wine. It makes it great if you just want a little more or to sample a few different varietals. I am deeply sorry that you did not enjoy the Shrimp & Grits. The tasso ham gravy should be very flavorful and compliment the shrimp well, and I am so sorry that it didn't. I would like to talk to you more about your experience! Please contact me at your convenience (336)370-0707 or lfinnegan@qwrh.com. Thank you!

“An Eclectic Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Lucky 32 has been a fixture in restaurants in Greensboro, NC for years. The menu choices can range from Bourbon steaks to great cajun dishes, including sandwiches. The food is prepared extremely well and served very efficiently. The dining room can get a bit noisy on weekends, but the barroom can be a bit quieter than the dining room.

Service is very efficient and patient when you want to eliminate something from a salad, or substitute something in a dish. The wine list is adequate. All in all, this one of our favorites in Greensboro.

“One of the best restaurants in town! My personal favorite lunch spot”

You can always count on Luck 32's staff for a wonderful dining experience from the service to the quality of the food. You can get in and out in on your lunch break. I highly recommend the Black Bean cakes...yummy!

“Wasn't impressed this time.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

We have eaten at this restaurant almost every time we come to Greensboro. We had friends with us this time, who we had raved to about Lucky 32. We had reservations, made almost a week beforehand. When we arrived, the hostess seemed disconcerted, and told the server to seat us in the bar. We have NEVER been seated in the bar, except when waiting for a table in the main dining room. We were put in a booth...5 of us. Not very comfortable to say the least. The server was also a barmaid who didn't quite know much about the menu. She brought us drinks and bread. We waited quite a while before she came to get our order. We ordered, then we waited some more. Finally, the meals were brought, except for our friend's meal. Oops, they forgot to put her order in. Someone else came over and asked if our friend would like a glass of wine while they rushed her order. She graciously accepted, not complaining. Her meal was brought to her a while later. We, of course, were through eating. A third person came around and asked if everything was okay. At this point, we were confused as to who our waitress really was. Our friends were charged for the wine, which they thought should have been a gesture of good will since they blew her order. Anyway, they did comp her meal after she asked about the wine. Such a fiasco at this restaurant. We have decided that Lucky 32 may not be right for us anymore. By the way, tell your bar server to wear something decent. I got tired of her breasts hanging over our table.
