Diner Reviews
  • "Great food, service, staff. The ever changing seasonal menu keeps the options open and satisfying. A wonderful option for couple as well as families. Have been enjoying for years."

  • "Once again Lucky 32 delivered. Outstanding food, outstanding service, etc. I love this place, and would drive a month if I had to, to get a meal from them."

  • "We had requested the patio and were seated there. Unfortunately, our table was the only one in the sun. Once everyone got their sunglasses we were good to go. Had a little bit of an ant issue but I guess you can expect that on occasion when eating outdoors. The food was good as always!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Would be a great location for first date dinner. Intimate but not secluded seating. Private conversation is easily achieved, but you aren't shuttered away from the "scene". Okra popcorn was an excellent appetizer!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "No liquids served with white rice making it similar to cement. Placed fork vertical in it and it retained it upright."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The creative and fresh menu is the highlight of this great setting. A consistently great wait staff is the one area of opportunity, which is hit or miss and was a miss this time. We will return though and look forward to another great mean!"

  • "We've eaten here many time in 10 yrs. this dinner we will remember. Huge storm came thru while we were dining. When we went to leave w/o an umbrella we noticed they had a young man running around w 2 huge umbrellas bringing & taking customers to /from their cars. He was so pleasant even though he was soaked completely but still smiling. On to the food: great as usual. We usually try something from their seasonal menu & something from their more permant menu. Never disappointed."

  • "A sister restaurant to the one in Gboro I actually prefer this one. It's convenient to Koka Booth to eat or drink before or after a show. Great food. Good menu. Reasonably priced."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "I like Lucky 32's seasonal menu that changes every 6 weeks. The food quality is consistently very good as is the service."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Lovely, accommodating staff - efficient service, varied menu, clean, HOT coffee (yea!). The signature corn bread is like a soft snack cake; I prefer southern cornbread - crispy from a skillet - without sugar, but this dish is still a treat, not too sweet good with coffee. Next visit, I'd like to try some of the sides (like pinto beans and chow chow & mac & cheese). I ordered a bacon and cheese omelet with hash browns. It was ok, a little too many bacon bits - big enough portion for a couple of lumberjacks; I would have preferred half the size and 1/4 of the bacon and cheese. Overall, a enjoyable dining experience."

  • "Being disappointed with Lucky 32 was an exception. We asked to be seated outside and was given a table in the sun and in front of a fan. After noticing that a table became available in the shade and away from the fan, I requested to the host that we be moved. Unfortunately, it appeared to be an inconvenience for the host and our party of four were made somewhat uncomfortable with the request. We were moved, although reluctantly, to the available table. The waiter was very accommodating but the host was bothered. The food is normally excellent, but the pork tenderloin was anything but tender. Even when we took the leftovers home, we had to discard it because it was too tough. The rest of the order was excellent."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I've heard great things about Lucky 32 but the meal missed the mark. The Cuke/Avocado soup had great promise but a harsh aftertaste with too much cilantro. The ABC of hash and pulled chicken had no flavor at all (my wife called it boring). The waitress brought out some voodoo sauce at my request which saved the dish. I ordered the Mexican chocolate with prickly pear only to discover no pear (sorry the pink "pear" sauce on the plate did little to flavor the dish). So it was really just chocolate cake with ice cream and a fancy name. I assume the brunch cooks are following recipes and not tasting the results."

  • "Great variety for a southern style menu-accommodated the widely varying tastes of 8 guests including A near Paleo eater. Brought own birthday cake which server held in kitchen, then added candles, provided plates. Very accommodating, pleasant, pro service. All guests very pleased."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Three of the four of us ordered from the seasonal menu and all of the dishes were delicious, but the best that we had were the pulled lamb and the crab cakes. The sides are all so good it's hard to choose, but the sweet potatoes, the mac & cheese, and the corn pudding are stand-outs in my opinion. Looking forward to our next visit. I might just have all of the sides."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The food and service were fabulous. They try to use local products when possible. You can taste the freshness with each bite. The service was great as well, we never had an empty glass which is always a plus for me. The desserts were AWESOME!! Their seasonal peaches and cream unbelievable. I also want to mention it was pouring rain this evening and there was a wonderful young lady greeting guests at their vehicles with and umbrella! What great customer service!"

  • "A variety of items served for brunch.... all that I saw looked absolutely delicious. My vegetarian omelet was outstanding. The perk was getting to order a "side" with the brunch item, and the pintos and chow-chow were a favorite. I would have loved seconds. Our waiter was very attentive and kept our coffee cups filled. Loved it."

  • "I absolutely loved this restaurant the ambience was amazing the service was wonderful and the food was out of this world never tasted a more well prepared meal with so much flavor and it practically melted in your mouth. I can't wait to come again."

  • "I came to dinner on July 4th for dinner and also to park in the lot near the fireworks. My companion and I had a lovely dinner. I had the Local Lamb on Johnny Cakes with the hickory-smoked Border Springs lamb on Johnny cakes with Carolina peach chutney and grilled onions. The lamb was delicious with the chutney. My companion was not as pleased with the meatloaf which she said was more like a pate. We shared the Peaches & Cream housemade vanilla custard with wedges of ripe peaches and cinnamon-scented sorghum syrup for dessert. The custard and peaches were delicious. I could have done with out the sorghum syrup, but my friend liked it. By the time we were finished, it was nearly time for the fireworks!"

  • "All of the food has been good over the years. At times the portions seem small and maybe lack of items like the garden salad no tomatoes cucumber or much beside spinach. But overall food is good and we leave full."

  • "This was my third visit to Lucky 32. The food is excellent. My salmon was cooked perfectly. Our waiter was great. We celebrated birthdays here twice and enjoyed ourselves both times. Nice atmosphere also."

  • "Great southern chic food. I have been to baby showers, bridal showers, thank you dinners and quiet nights out at this restaurant. It has always delivered!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "There are always new and unusual dishes on the menu. Its a great place to go if you are looking for something other than the standard fare of most restaurants. Chefs make good use of local and typically southern foods and dishes. As a Northerner I enjoy the chance to try things I haven't had before - I don't always like them, but that is more my taste and not the fault of the restaurant!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We love Lucky 32! Today we had GREAT service and a great meal! Try the black bean cakes and the peanut butter pie! YUM!"

  • "We there for a birthday family celebration. The restaurant was not too loud so we could have a normal conversation across the table. The food was excellent. All interesting twists on a southern cuisine. The least favorite meal was the fish of the day, swordfish. I was disappointed in the portion compared to all the other dishes that were served. The feature of the day, pan fried chicken was excellent."

  • "I hated the service. Our waitress was horrible. Not only did she mess up our drinks, forget our bread, and then get the timing of our food wrong... She thought it was acceptable to insult me and go round for round with me about what I may or may not have told her manager about her mistakes. She was disrespectful to say the least. The food @ Lucky 32 is pretty good, but I would never recommend the restaurant to others because of their service. Honestly, I have never had a "he-said-she-said" conversation with a waiter, ever, in life... I don't want to again."

  • "I've been to this restaurant 4 times in the past 6 months and have been impressed each time. This latest visit, specifically, the service was outstanding. The server was very helpful in explaining menu items and when asked, he was able to offer staff opinion on the seasonal menu items. There was no rush to order, eat, pay, or leave. Very friendly staff from and a pleasant experience from the minute we walked in to the minute we left. The food was great as well. The rotating seasonal menu that changes every 5 - 6 weeks keeps the selection fresh and provides a good opportunity to try something new. Good thing we booked ahead with OpenTable...the standard wait was over an hour."

  • "We have dined several times before and found our food experience to decline each time. Decided to try again and was pleasantly surprised to receive good food. The hamburger is the best in town! Nice selection of choices, along with beer/wine. The brownie dessert is amazing!! This is a great place for southern comfort foods. The Staff was very welcoming upon arrival, our server James was very accommodating and the Mgr, Greg Miller is a gem! We look forward to see him at our next visit. I believe he and my son are now friends!"

  • "I've been to Lucky 32 several times now. I enjoy the menu ALTHOUGH) I wish there were more options for vegetarians. I usually order a salad, which is very good. The cocktails are very good as well and the service was excellent. Our waiter Joshua was attentive but not annoying , which gave my friend and I chat time !"
