    It was a very good experience, the only negative thing I would have to say is about the front of the house manager. I am twenty and I went on a date with my girlfriend and her sorority sister. Everything was going great. Everytime the manager walked by and talked to other tables she didn't say a word to us. The first time went unnoticed but it kept happening. The only thing she did towards my table the whole night was take the check and give it to the server. Over all experience was great. Management needs some work. If it happens next time I come I probably won't come back. Again after that. Great food great atmosphere! Will definitely give it a second chance becuase of that!

    Our family and close friends were in Greensboro to celebrate my daughter's 14th birthday, before heading off to a concert at the Greensboro Coliseum. It was the perfect choice- the setting was elegant, the menu was uniquely upscale "Southern" (just what we were looking for), and our server was extremely knowledgeable. Will be spreading the word about the fabulous meal and service we experienced at Lucky 32!

    I have been coming to Lucky 32 since day one and the service has been lacking lately. We had a party of 6 and our waiter was attentive, but rushed us most of the time, especially when finished...he wanted to take the plates before some were finished and brought the checks too soon. I've had better. Food choice is always good with variety, but not particularly happy with seating with more than 4...many times are put right at the kitchen! Do keep coming back especially when outside dining... Open Table reservations was so easy!

    I had high expectations for this restaurant after seeing their mini farm stand outside their front door. It could be that I'm not used to Southern food, but everything was very heavily laden with sauces, or side sauces, that I'm not even sure were made at the restaurant. All of our dishes were definitely tasty, but lacked refinement. I think I could have made most of them at home. The kale and beans were very dry. On the positive side, our waitress and the staff were very professional and we enjoyed our service. I would recommend Lucky 32, but just know you're getting rich old fashioned Southern food.

    This particular restaurant was very nice. We sat outside and the ambiance was everything and more. While dining we overheard a couple were having their 45th anniversary. We often to take care of their desert but the restaurant had already compensated them for it. I thought that was very nice. And we met 2 NEW FRIENDS...Mrs.Ginnie and Mr.Don.

    Lucky 32 in Cary, NC is one of our go to's. We were delighted to see a location listed in Greensboro, NC when we were in town for a soccer tournament. Not what you think, no team-dinner; just my wife and daughter for a quiet dinner. Excellent treatment by the door staff and service staff. Our food was fabulous, especially my Shrimp and Grits with Andouile Sausage! Waitstaff and servers were very attentive, yet very respectful of our quiet time. Highly recommend as a personal or business dinner site. Very happy to see the level of quality and ambiance was what we had come to expect from our local Lucky 32. Great job by the restaurant leadership!

    My husband & I drove with my in-laws to a wedding in Greensboro from Dallas, TX and chose lucky 32 to celebrate my father-in-law's birthday. The food was delicious and the menu had a nice variety. We started with the shrimp cakes & okra popcorn, both very good. Service was attentive & the wine/beer selections were good. We had the meatloaf, bourbon steak, fish of the day & beef stew between the 4 of us and we were ALL very happy & satisfied with our choices!

    We found Lucky 32 when coming down to the area to look at colleges. Since then we have eaten here 3 times, making it an important stop every time we return. The food, service and drink has been consistently excellent. My father even makes the trip from Asheville just to meet us for dinner. Absolutely everything is amazing so pick anything on the menu. Desserts are to die for! My only suggestion is that they stay the same forever!

    After we were seated and started looking at the menu, everyone except for our 11 year old son (whose palate is still evolving) had difficulty picking out just one entree and the most interesting sides. Everything looked amazing! We started with fried pork skins dipped in homemade pimiento cheese (I'll never eat a skin out of the bag again) and fried green tomatoes with voodoo sauce - their signature blend that is a little spicy. My. I had a butterflied chicken breast and it was so tender! Their menu has pot liquor on it, for crying out loud (Google it if you think this is an alcoholic beverage)! Seriously, real, genuine, southern food meets intense know-how of how to treat said food at this place! I can't wait to try other items!

Im not overweight at all, I'm a fit person with an lower than average appetite and I had to go somewhere to eat more. Will not be back, warning my friends.

    Great experience as always! The southern menu of Lucky 32 is always a winner with friends who have traveled to visit as the preparation is always upscale and with a spin. Our table enjoyed the salmon, lamb with johnny cakes, fried green tomatoes, and sweet potato hushpupplies with rave reviews. Lucky 32 continues to be a great place for a Sunday brunch or a social location for dinner with co-workers or friends. Highly recommended.

    We usually have good experiences in this restaurant and I make my family eat here regularly, but I ordered a special based on a photo of the dish and didn't recieve anything like the photo. Instead of the mounds of ricotta the photo showed, there was maybe a tablespoon sprinkled on top. When I asked for more, I was given a tablespoon more and then the restaurant wanted to charge me for it. Considering that I was paying an entree price for white rice, half a zucchini, and the ricotta cheese, I was shocked they were so stingy with it. What was I paying for? Especially considering the same photo with tons of ricotta showed much more zucchini. If photos are used for advertising, it's only fair to serve what is shown. Left a bad feeling.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants but even though we are regulars we also like to celebrate special occasions here. We love the changing seasonal menus and also that you get to pick which side dishes you want with your main course. It omits the need for the sometimes awarkwardness of having to ask for substitutions to your order. My wife and I have never been disappointed with a meal at Lucky 32!
