ConsistentAlways gr8 - wonderful to bring out of towners & for a general treat5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWait was too longWe made a reservation for the very purpose to avoid a wait with my elderly mother. It took us 25 minutes to be seated although we were right on time for our reservation. The food was good and our server was excellent but would appreciate management looking at their reservation policy even at busy times.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceThe food was enjoyable and the service great.

We love Lucky 32!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Celebration for MomWe celebrated Mothers Day on Saturday at Lucky 32 in Cary. My Mom is preparing to move to Charlotte and wanted to revisit Lucky 32, a restaurant she had stumbled across six years ago when she arrived from California, but hadn't been back to since. We had a very nice brunch. I had made our reservation a week earlier and had requested a quiet corner table due to my Mom's hearing difficulties. We were led to a lovely corner booth in the private dining room and Mom was able to hear and participate in conversation quite easily. Our server was terrific -- upbeat, attentive, and ready with recommendations when asked. The food was marvelous, however, it wasn't always as warm as we wished. Still, we'd recommend Lucky 32.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMReview can't say everythingRated everything OK but read between lines. One Sunday we went no reservations. Guy wrote name on sticky note b/c couldn't find paper for names. We were only people waiting. Others came, were seated. we still waited. Finally went to hostess, told our name not on list. My wife looked at them, said "I saw you write our name on sticky note." They continued that we were not on list. We were seated in 5 minutes. Next time, made reservations 7 pm. We got there 6:45, told it would be close to 7 o'clock because busy, told them we were just letting them know we were there. At 7:10 went to podium, asked. Several groups with no reservation, sat with us but were seated. We were seated 7:25. Food /food service/waiter great. Host/hostess need training.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be back againDiverse menu and able to meet certain dietary needs (with a smile). Thank you.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLucky 32 has a good menu withLucky 32 has a good menu with one section that changes every 6 weeks with new and different selections. I eat there often.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMLucky 32 is far enough awayLucky 32 is far enough away that I think of it as requiring a "special trip," but I always find it worth it! Tried something new this time, the bourbon-marinated ribeye, and ooh, was it tasty! Also giant enough that I could enjoy it a second time the next day. As someone tried to avoid carbohydrates, I really appreciated the gluten-free menu and the chance to get the pimento cheese appetizer with celery instead of crackers. Yum! Our waiter was a bit too chatty and forgot a few things here and there, but he was good-humored, gave honest recommendations that were really appreciated, and gave excellent service despite the small misses. I'll definitely be back!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMScene on Friday night wasScene on Friday night was a little older (55+) Waitress was attentive and honest. Food was good (Friend pickles, Jambalaya, Salad, drinks and a fabulous browine dessert)
Being from CA, there are still dozens of southern dishes we still have to try here

We couldn't decide on our dish because everything looked so amazing! We sat close to the waiting area and it was a bit noisy but that was the only thing I could be critical of. I definitely recommend going to Lucky 32!! service was A+ as well! Glad Cary has such a nice place to dine.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe met friends for SundayWe met friends for Sunday brunch.

All our food was good and service was very prompt and courteous.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLucky 32 is consistently theLucky 32 is consistently the best restaurant experience in Cary.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile we were attempting aWhile we were attempting a nice "grown ups night out" with friends, others in the restaurant had their kids along for dinner even with a later reservation time. Parents these days seem to have a much more relaxed idea of appropriate restaurant etiquette and the 4 of the kids were allowed to roam the restaurant, running back and forth, doing "cheers", etc. Manners just don't seem to matter as much anymore, and it makes choosing a nice, reasonably priced restaurant like L32 a little riskier since you are forced to balance the risk of others' poor choices with polite behavior. Wait staff was excellent. Food was terrific.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMwe enjoyed thoroughly. thewe enjoyed thoroughly. the menu was diverse and the service (Josh) excellent4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCornbread was off the chartsCornbread was off the charts delicious
Suzanne was excellent.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently great food and serviceWe have dined at Lucky 32 monthly since moving to Cary about three years ago. The food and service are consistently very good. Our server, Abbey, was attentive and pleasant. Our meals of pork cutlet and salmon were excellent as were the generous sides. We highly recommend Lucky 32 as a reasonably priced restaurant with great food and service.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time visit was goodFirst time at this Lucky 32. I wish the one in North Raleigh were still open. We met friends and had a good time, service was friendly but not pestering. We did not feel rushed at all. Everyone enjoyed their meal.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall a very good experience,Overall a very good experience, very accommodating staff, good service, a nice level of energy in the restaurant but not too loud, excellent food, and some uniquely southern dishes. Will definitely return.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster brunch favoriteWe've been going to Lucky 32 for Easter brunch for years, and we've always enjoyed our meals. It is always busy during Easter, but the wait time is not long and the food comes out quickly. I love the Southern-inspired menu, but I have to say that my favorite is the pinto beans-chowchow side dish :-) So simple and yet so addicting!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLucky 32 rarely disappoints.Lucky 32 rarely disappoints. I find it to be a reliable place to go for an upscale dining experience and I like that they frequently update their menu. They always seem to come up with an interesting appetizer or dessert to spice it up. The ambiance is very pleasing. There is a nice bar but it was relatively quiet on this particular evening.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood first dateA very upscale place without the upscale prices. Excellent food, excellent service.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAdam our server was outstandinglyAdam our server was outstandingly polite, knowledgeable, and well mannered, he really "made the evening for us."3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a wonderful experienceI had a wonderful experience here.

Will be back again, and again, etc...3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Waitress was a new employee but VERY good considering her lack of experience. She struggled with opening a bottle of wine (we were her first attempt) but after some tutoring she was fine. Food was superb. This was not my first time at Lucky 32 and the quality is always first rate. GREAT PLACE. Lucky (no pun intended) we had a reservation because the place was packed with happy customers with smiling faces. Highly recommended.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal food flavorfully done!The restaurant was in high gear when we arrived close to our reservation time of 7:30. Despite the significant crowds waiting for a table, the space didn't seem crowded. We went to the bar to get a drink and wait for a table. The hostestt sat us at around 7:40. The service and food were both excellent. We were very pleased with the experience and plan to return soon.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only complaint was thisThe only complaint was this was a special occasion (my wife's birthday), which was noted when making the reservation on OpenTable. However, nothing was said, no complimentary treat for the birthday girl; a real letdown for the guy paying the bill. What value is your notation of special occasion is the restaurant pays no attention!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome local craft beer selectionAwesome local craft beer selection on tap. Started off the meal with some yummy warm bread & butter. I had Black Bean Cakes (with a little side of VooDoo Sauce, as recommended by our server) and they were delicious. My hubby had the Cobb Salad and enjoyed it. Sides of creamed spinach and whipped sweet potatoes were amazing. Finished off this wonderful meal by splitting the almond pound cake with butter pecan ice cream. Loved the atmosphere. Service was very friendly and helpful. Would love to go back!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMReservations at 7:30 FridayReservations at 7:30 Friday night (March 15th); walked in and immediately seated, though others were waiting. Waiter was attentive without being overbearing. Wide variety on the menu; not too pricey. Beer/wine selection great. It can be a bit noisy; my wife and I don't hear conversations well in noisy venues, but we were OK with the noise level Friday. The ONLY "complaint" we had was about the butter. The waiter brought us several thick slices of warm (not hot) bread. The butter pats were taken straight from the fridge, so spreading the butter on the bread was impossible. Eating the warm bread alone was preferred over biting into a pat of cold butter.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood local food. Catfish andGood local food. Catfish and jambalaya were great. Shrimp and grits needed more fire. Fried green tomatoes were outstanding !
Great service.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper for my Surprise!!!I planned a surprise birthday dinner for a friend here without ever have eaten here. The hostesses were very accommodating leading up to the event and the night of the event, the service and food were both GREAT! I definitely plan on visiting and dining again.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place in CaryWe have been regular diners at Lucky 32 since we moved to Cary 3 1/2 years ago. We go back because the food is consistently very good, the portions large, the service excellent and the prices moderate. We prefer a booth for privacy and are given one on every occasion. Our experience a few days ago was no different than past visits to the restaurant. Melissa, our server, was friendly, attentive and efficient. My wife's salmon was as good as any of the best restaurants and my pork loin was great. We highly recommend Lucky 32.2/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good but server wasFood was good but server was a little un-frendly. I think I just got the wrong guy that night. I will try it again in the future to see how it goes.12/15/2012 12:00:00 AM
