The usual 5 stars. We're here
The usual 5 stars. We're here once a week; this time in the bar with family and a 15 month old. Guy did his usual great service job in making sure dinner went smooth. Recommend the chopped salad, peppered filet, hash browns and turtle sunday. My wife thinks the abalone is the best in Santa Barbara. Nice wine selection, and the bar knows how to make a drink!

We had a lovely time for Mother's
We had a lovely time for Mother's Day. Our waitress was fabulous, considering I knocked over drink glasses - twice! The busboys were on top of it! Food was very good, it might be a bit noisy if you have a problem hearing, but when I requested a quiet corner, they gave us the quietest one they had. I would definitely recommend Luckys. I hear the dinner menu is pricey, but the brunch was very reasonable.

Had dinner here with boyfriend for his birthday. The food was amazing, the steak and the side dishes. Great service as well. Pricey but worth it for quality of food. I would recommend to friends.

One of My favorites in Area
Lucky's is an institution :-) I had mixed up my dates (went there one day early), but front staff recognized my predicament and found a table for our party of 6 in the bar. It was extremely noisy, but fun. After a brief mix-up about who was going to wait on our large party, the bar area waiter grabbed the slack and did a fabulous job. Of course the steaks here are incredible and cooked perfectly. We also had the ribs and lamb. My dinner companions are still talking about how perfectly everything was cooked. Wine list is on target for their menu, very well selected, although pricey. I wonder if the have BYOB, which I would do next time if they offered this service. Wonderful evening, with plenty to watch in the bar!!!

Luckys is a GEM
This is one of my favorite hang outs and the food is so good. Don't miss the Turtle Sundae!!!

Best steaks in Santa Barbara County
Great Steaks, Fish, wine list and salads. Nice place for a nice dinner out.
High quality food in a very nice environment.

Service very friendly, and very nice dinning area!

The food was amazing! The service was not. The waitress was downright unfriendly...to us. My husband and I were on a weekend getaway. We decided to splurge and treat ourselves to a steakhouse dinner. The wine list was amazing, however, our modest budget restricted us to literally the cheapest bottle of red. It was fantastic. What we didn't know, was that our choice, was apparently a beacon signal to our waitress. She doted on the couple next to us. Provided them with an aerating canister, and lavished them with recommendations and chit chat. We were treated like the red-headed stepchildren: ignored. The busboys brought us our food, desert list and coffee. We didn't see our waitress again until she perfunctorily delivered our check. Ewww.

We have been going to Lucky's for several years. Everything they serve is great. We have tried just about everything on the menu and there isn't anything that is bad. We live about 50 miles away but it is worth the drive. We just celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary at Lucky's.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Old-timey good ol fashioned service
This was a first-time trip. The restaurant has a lot of rep and nostalgia...for good reason. Reminds me of the places my grandfather would take me. Impeccable and extremely polite service, crumbers, and blue cheese olives in the martini. We found the cut of fillet to be ok, nothing stellar. But they make up for it with the sauces. Hash browns with gruyere was off the chain.

I took my husband for his
I took my husband for his 65th birthday and his family joined us. Everyone, I mean everyone loved the food. Our waitress was excellent. It's pricey so it's some place that I would go on special occasion as we did. I can't wait for another special occasion to go again.

Best steak ever!!! Done to
Best steak ever!!! Done to perfection. Lots of places claim this, Luckys delivered.

It was nearly an hour before
It was nearly an hour before we saw any food- which fortunately was worth the wait. Waitress was trying to up sell us sides etc before we finished our sentence. We actually had to ask her to relax. We ordered many sides and even a pricey bottle of wine. Don't assume everyone is a cheap tourist passing through.

We Love Lucky's
Lucky's is a Santa Barbara scene. The food is satisfying, the service is superb; you really feel like the waitstaff care! What a treat! Elegant and easy going, Lucky's strikes just the right note.

Not so much Luck, more Iconic
Our second time at Luckys, fantastic - best meal I have personally eaten for quite some time.
From the starter prawn cocktail to the New York strip steak, onion rings mash is a tasteful delight.
Wine list that is as possibly legendary as the photographic portraits that adorne the walls of the restaurant.
Truly iconic and a fabulous experience from the moment you enter, wonderful service all round.
Sure ts not cheap - but its gastronomy memory to treasure.

Wonderful Anniversary dinner
My wife and I enjoyed an excellent evening at Lucky's. great filets, cooked to perfection. Love the creamed corn; Lucky's salad always my favorite. Martinis are always excellent and served with a flourish. The general manager Leonard Schwartz couldn't have been nicer, inquiring as to our well being and engaging in some personal observations on the restaurant. Treated us to a special favorite turtle sundae as well! Have been going there for years for special dinners. This visit was the friendliest and thoroughly enjoyable. We prefer to eat in the bar: more casual and livelier, and were accommodated
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another Great Dinner
Another great dinner in the bar! Perfect peppered filet and the creamed spinach was very good. Turtle sunday could be best desert in town.
Ringo did his usual excellent service.

Great Classic Steakhouse!
My LD and I went for dinner in September. Our cocktails were well made. Our salads tasted wonderful. I had the Filet Mignon Pepper Steak with Cognac and LD had a Filet Mignon both were cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. We shared the Hashed Brown Potatoes with Gruyére Cheese which were to die for and we couldn’t eat all of them but would have liked to. Our server was very attentive but not overdone. Definitely will be back to enjoy this throw back to the classic steakhouses of the 50’s.

Dinner at Lucky's
Great as always. Terrific staff with the best Sommelier in town. Quite pricey but always worth it. Nothing but fun, great steaks, great wine and a great time can be had at Lucky's.

great find in montecito
Nothing fancy, old school ambiance, bit good solid food.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Whenever we have a special occasion, Lucky's is our "go to" place. It's vibrant, happening and great food and wine. Cheers!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I must say that Lucky's was quite accommodating for our unconventional cocktail/dinner.
Since about 18 of us were staying for dinner. Under different reservations. Lucky's worked with us so we could sit in close proximity to one another, all at the same time. No small feat. The special John Dorrie entree was superb. Oysters were small and sweet.
Grilled artichoke was meaty and were prepared. If you want a big steakhouse dinner in the Santa Barbara area this is the place to go.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our son attends a school nearby and we dine at Lucky's at least one time per every visit! It is a great family find and the food/service never ever disappoints! Love Lucky's!!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every chance we get we done at Luckys, it is not our neighborhood restaurant however we visit at least once a month and Luckys has never let us down! We will continue to dine there as long as we can!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Celebrated a special anniversary...
We had informed Lucky's of our special anniversary & they did everything possible to make it
very special for us, from seating us at the table we had requested to waiving the corkage fee on
the special bottle of wine we had brought with us & ending the evening with a complimentary
dessert...it was a perfect evening! Thank you!!!

Karen Did a Great Job!
Entertained 6 people in bar for dinner, and we all had the usual great food and beverages. Karen did a great server job on a busy night, she was also nice enough to get the tv over our table switched to the world series which 4 of red sox fan guests wanted to see. Thanks.

Dinner here is much better
Dinner here is much better than the lunch served on the weekends. We've always liked Lucky's but will stick with evening meals.

Another Good Dinner.
We ate in bar again, and Ringo did his usual great job! We enjoy the chopped salad, warm goat cheese salad. Had the roasted chicken with cauliflower gratin, and my wife enjoyed the meat loaf special.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM

Wonderful experience. First visit while in town and will return each time we visit. Food was OUTSTANDING. Even on a very, very busy night. Judging by the people this is THE best place around for locals and visitors alike. Go, enjoy.

Lucky to Have Lucky's
I've been going to Lucky's 15 years now and it has not changed a lick. Super food and super service. And I have not even mentioned the martinis! They are the best.
