A word from Lucky's Lounge
Descending the stairs into Lucky's is like stepping through a portal into a swinging hipster lounge straight out of the '50s. Dim red lighting washes a rowdy vinyl-upholstered dining room, which is separate from the long narrow bar. Sardine-like conditions are the norm during peak hours, when an energetic crowd (Fort Point Channel artsy types and Financial District worker bees) rolls in for the neighborhood's liveliest scene. - Citysearch

    I've never been disappointed at Lucky's. Whether at Sinatra breakfast/brunch (best one around) or Sunday evening Sinatra night. Food is very reasonable and good. Staff is extremely accommodating and friendly, and it is a pleasant night out. Lucky's gift certificates make great gifts!! Always a pleasure.

    Never had a bad meal or experience at Lucky's. The selection is great, and I find it harder and harder to select something every time I go. Sinatra Sunday's are perfect, b/c the place is never overly packed, and the band is incredible. Its my go-to brunch spot in Boston

    We are from California and when ever we find our selves on te east coast we have two stops we must make. Patsy's in New York and Lucky's Lounge in Boston. Very cool no signage to mark the location outside and once you are inside it just gets better. We always go for dinner on a Sunday when Alan and the boys do "Sinatra Sunday's". Amazing food and amazing musicians. Alan doesn't sound exactly like frank nor does he claim to. Just does a great job on the great songs.

    I really appreciated the hostest accomodating an extra person to our party. I loved the Sinatra brunch. The place is always a favorite of mine for happy hour ( the nachos are amazing!) but I had never tried their brunch. The food was great! The service however did not match the quality of food. The food runner was confused when he brought out our food. The manager came up and asked if we had gotten the correct orders, almost as if someone had lost food and he was trying to find it, and our server, while friendly, didnt check on us after we had gotten our food, we waiting quite a while for drink refills, and she stood and waited to get payment while we were gathering our money. We had to tell her we werent ready yet.

    First of all, I would certainly recommend this restaurant. The food was better than I expected for a lounge style restaurant. I had the catfish with grits and broccolini - very tasty. The rest of our party enjoyed their meals as well. Our waitress was lovely, even though she had been working since 9am! The live music and occasional dancing was great and really set a festive tone to the evening. If it were my restaurant, I would brighten up the place with fresh paint and a new carpet (but keep everything else!). I also smelled a hint of cigarette smoke, probably still in the carpet from the old days. The band was fantastic. I wish they dressed up a bit... Frank never sang in old jeans... That being said, I will go back!

    So this place is a dive. Old. A bit rundown. But its a great dive. Old time great. The Sinatra brunch is well worth the trip. The singer and band are great and its a blast from the past. The food is good. Not gourmet but decent. The music is a bit loud but sit in the other side. Its a fun way to start a Sunday.

    We had reservations on a recent Sunday for brunch. First time at Lucky's. They "accidentally deleted" our reservation, but they did find us a table when we showed up (?). The brunch was fine, food ranged from average to very good. My biggest gripe is the seating, understand they are busy, but don't tell the party after us that they are waiting for our specific table and then let them glare at us while we finish. We were not lingering - we had our table for a total of less than an hour. I probably won't go back, overall nothing wrong with it, but for a semi-pricey brunch it was pretty class-free.

    If a friend hadn't shared a posting for a story telling event at Lucky's, it would have remainder prever hidden. I gathered a group of friends to come with me on the adventure. The atmosphere was immediately inviting. The cocktail menu had several intriguing choices - settled on a Maple bourbon old fashion that did not disappoint - generous size, crushed fruit and served quickly. the food choices were equally interesting and well prepared. We chose appetizers of baby corn dogs in spicy batter and fried pickles - delicious. My main course was Cajun catfish prepared over grits with a side of broccoli rabbi. I was not disappointed. I will definitely add this to my list of favorites for future visits.

    My friends and I went for Sinatra Sunday and had a pretty good experience. Maggie, our waitress, was phenomenal and had great suggestions. She wasn't overly knowledgeable about gluten-free and dairy-free options but was super willing to answer my questions and check with the chef about everything. Our apps were great- fried pickles, truffle fries, and BBQ wings. Entrees were so/so...my scallops were very fishy tasting and the beans were so saturated with sage that they weren't even edible. My friend's chicken sandwich was ok and my other friend's blue ribbon chicken was very good. The drink list was fantastic and very yummy! The band was great...singer sounded more like Buble than Sinatra but the saxophonist was incredible!

    Sinatra Saturday/Sunday is amazing. If you do go, be sure you check with the restaurant to find out what time everything is starting. The calendar on the website shows Sinatra Sunday Night starts at 6:00. If you look in other locations on the website, you will find that is not the case and everything starts at 8:00. Kind of a bummer as we made reservations, asked to be on the side with the music and then found we were 2 hours early. We left before anything ever started. It is a lot of fun, just be sure you confirm the time.

    Purchased a dinner for 4 coupon and brought mom for her 81st birthday. The food was delicious and plentiful ! The Sinatra singer was just fabulous and the band was the same; producing a sound quite pleasing to the ears. Our waitress was very attentive and sweet. It was quite an enjoyable night all around for all of us.

    Lucky's is one of my favorite brunch spots, so I brought my bf for his first time. The food was delish - I highly recommend the eggs benedict. He loved the heuvos, and our service was fantastic per usual. There is a Sinatra trio which serenades you and sang "over the rainbow" to a group celebrating a birthday, which was lovely.

    My parents and kids all joined in celebrating a birthday.

Very generous portions and an attentive server completed the picture. Just moved into an office down the street, so I will definitely be back!

    Really didn't expect to be raving about the food here but whoever is in the kitchen here knows what they are doing. Summer salmon dish was phenomenal, with wonderful dressing, beautiful seasoning on the veggies and a great cook on the salmon itself. Same goes for the steak - the stuffed tomato was well executed and good flavors all around. The coconut kafir lime shrimp appetizer was an interesting dish too. Jazz show on Sundays is nice as well, and the lounge is much more romantic / the place to be, no question (we did not know this and were not seated there).

    We went to Lucky's, during a recent visit to Boston, on the recommendation of our daughter. We enjoyed a delicious Sunday breakfast complete with cocktails. To make the morning even more pleasant, we had the pleasure of listening to a combo performing Sinatra. Lucky's is indeed a hidden gem, a little hard to find as there is no signage but well worth the effort.

    This place is very cool - great cocktails, great beer list, great food! My husband and I started with the kobe sliders, which were cooked perfectly (about medium), served with a quail egg on top - swoon! Then the fried pickles, enough to feed a party of 10! I had the caesar salad which had a fresh light dressing on it - our server was lovely and even surprised me with an extra dish of the white anchovies, yum! Overall this place is amazing. Cannot wait to go back to try the famous brunch, or even for cocktails at the bar.

    It was hard to find the restaurant at first. It's in the basement of a big brick building. The entrance is on the corner, down some dark stairs and you're not even sure if it's the right place but it is. Not many signs except for a sandwich board on the sidewalk. Wood paneling inside and tacky decor felt like someone's basement circa 1970s. Looks like it hasn't been updated but maybe they like it that way. French fries were amazing. My bacon mushroom burger was average. Cocktails were good.

    3 of us were there on a quiet Monday night. The server/bartender was wonderful. We had so much fun and super service. I had the classic iceberg wedge with skirt steak which was very good. 1 person had the same salad but with chicken and she also really enjoyed it. The other person had the Kobe sliders on the recommendation of our server and she generously shared one with us. It was absolutely delicious. He was so right with the recommendation. We all shared an order of the truffle fries and they were very good. Fun evening.

    Celebrated a birthday brunch. Although service was on the slow side, the retro decor was great. The singer and 3 piece band belting out Sinatra tunes were awesome--and they take requests. Typical brunch menu was spot on. Nice time. Would recommend for a special occasion or a drink while one listens to the classics.
