Diner Reviews
  • "Although Lucky 32 was exceptionally busy b/c quite a few prom dates were dining there, we did not feel slighted at all. The lovely hostess greeted us warmly & made us feel welcomed. We did have to wait about 20 minutes beyond my reservation time, but that was a minor delay considering how busy they were. My party of 4 was there to celebrate a 75th birthday. When I made reservations, I had asked for special attention for the birthday "boy," & the hostess acknowledged my request, but our waiter didn't mention anything until I pointed out we were celebrating a birthday. And, then, it was just a "happy birthday" comment. He did seem a bit "new" at serving but he did a very nice job. Overall , we had a very good experience."

  • "Lucky 32 is a great casual restaurant where we dine often. Tonight we had pork cutlet with fries and deviled eggs along with salmon, a salad and mashed sweet potatoes. Our meals were both very good and the sides excellent. The service was friendly and efficient. We find the serving staff at Lucky 32 to be among the best of any restaurant in the Triangle. It makes dining there a pleasant experience. Meals are always served hot with a very good presentation."

  • "Decided to try this one during a 1-night stay in Cary, NC. Glad we did - all of the food, from the bread, to the salmon, and black bean cakes, were fresh and made-to-order. I asked for low salt on all of my food, which they were happy to do. Good service at first, but once a larger table was seated near us, waiters became scarce. Took about 15 minutes to see get a dessert menu, and another 10 before some ice cream arrived. 20 minutes after that, we were finally able to flag down our check. Despite that, I'd still go back and try more of their food offerings."

  • "We went there for our anniversary lunch. Got a very nice table next to floor to cieling window over looking garden. Our waiter was very attentive and the service was excellent. Having lunch at Lucky 32 made us feel special. I had my favorite black bean cake. My husband had fish special. Both were very good. We enjoyed our lunch very much."

  • "First time there this past weekend and wasn't sure what to expect. Had looked at the menu many times before and never went. It was amazing. I went with my dad and boyfriend. We all tried something we hadn't had before in a while, and really enjoyed everything that came out. The server was outstanding as well. We would definitely go back."

  • "I had the chicken breast and it was very moist with great seasoning. My husband had meatloaf and said it was good. We dined for an early dinner, so the wait staff was excellent. Great variety at reasonable pricing."

  • "The concept is a great one: all those southern comfort foods done with high quality fresh ingredients and served in the ambiance of a first-class restaurant. Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen almost pulls it off. Their cornmeal-crusted catfish is legendary. However, they've left in too much of the fat content in the traditional recipes. As a result, although we enjoy the food and the overall dining experience, we leave with indigestion. Lighten up! and you'd have a real winner."

  • "A fun place to take visitors with the unique menu. Noise in the main dining area too high for groups over 4."

  • "Three of us had Sunday dinner. We had pulled pork on johnnycakes, salmon with horseradish crust, and trout with a vinaigrette sauce. All were good and all came with 3 sides. It was a lot of food for the money! Our waiter was excellent - friendly yet professional. I have eaten at Lucky 32 maybe a half dozen times over the years and always find it to be a very good performer."

  • "Wonderfully simply menu items with a unique twist but not so fancy that you're unfamiliar with the item when it arrives. Atmosphere is very comfortable - but with an upscale feel to the surroundings. Waiter was very attentive, formal and friendly."

  • "Food was great, service polite but dinner was very rushed. Our main course was delivered in the middle of our appetizer and our salad was delivered after that. There wasn't enough room on the table and there was only two of us. There were empty tables so I can only assume they were disorganized."

  • "We had heard that the fried chicken they serve on Wednesday night was very good. We were not disappointed. It had a well seasoned coating, crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside. Even the breast was not too dry. The sides - collard greens, mashed potatoes, and cornbread - were good as well. It's a very heavy meal. Unless you want lots of left-overs you might consider splitting a plate with your dinning partner."

  • "Our one table bridge club met for lunch this week at Lucky 32, and they were kind enough to let us keep our table for bridge playing after lunch. It was great. We had a wonderful server, and the food was excellent. We plan to ask to do this again next month, and would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Went to dinner with friends and had a great time! Had a reservation and was seated within a minute of arriving! The place was packed but still we had room in our booth that made it cozy and not crowded. The service by Jeremy was amazing! He was with us start to finish and was very attentive without being overwhelming. The food was incredible. Hot, succulent and delicious. Especially the Delta Pasta! I definitely recommend Lucky 32!!!"

  • "We always enjoy Lucky 32! The menu is approachable, without being stale. It's the perfect place to try a new twist on a classic. The prices are fair, and the food excellent. The decor is strikingly beautiful. It's good enough for an in-law dinner or a first date, yet cosy and easy enough to be your regular Friday night spot. Can I give it more stars?"

  • "Spinach-oyster salad - delicious - oyster were crispy and some of the best I've had. Cornmeal crusted catfish - cooked perfectly. Pulled pork - phenomenal! Favorite side has always been the grit cake. Red beans and rice were a tad salty. Mac and cheese side, yummy. Creamed spinach - a little over the top with cream. Overall, a delicious meal. Waiter was quick and attentive. We arrived at 6:30 and left at 7:15. The food came out quickly! Good service, good food, good staff."

  • "We recently came for Saturday brunch. The menu items were very appealing. I had the flash fried oysters in spinach cream sauce and bacon. Although the oysters were small, the combination was excellent. I also ordered the Cobb salad. The dressing was a bit underseasoned. My dining partner had the Banannas Foster french toast. The menu said the sauce would be on the side. Instead it came piping hot on top of the toast. As a result the toast itself became mushy. We'll go back as we always do, but some of the dishes could use tweaking."

  • "I chose the restaurant because I had been there only once before and enjoyed my catfish dinner. Always said I wanted to go again to try the shrimp and grits on the menu. I was not disappointed! My dinner was delicious. My husband had the pork chops- very tender and was glad the voodo sauce was served on the side as the waiter suggested. ( My husband was concerned it may be too hot.) It ended up a nice kick of flavor he could add on his own. Our server was very attentive and friendly.Can't wait to try other items on their menu."

The menu has some items that stay on year round and another group of items that rotate every so often. Both of our meals were delicious. The service was excellent. We will definitely be going back soon."

  • "Love the changing menu, the rasta Pasta is Great, could just use a little more sauce. Husband ordered Suffolk chicken which is no longer on the menu but you can still get it. Lots of vegetarian choices and good wine choices. Great restaurant to meet friends due to variety."
