Seated right away. Extremely nice waitress so we forgave her for her inattention during our meal which was probably not her fault. Very cool atmosphere except bathrooms need updating. We went for Sunday Brunch. My companions had 2 different types of Eggs Benedict which they said were good, not outstanding. I had the shrimp and grits and it was definitely the worst example I have ever had. Imagine just plain, too thick, too cheddar cheesy grits with MELTED CHEDDAR CHEESE on top with a few bacon bits, green onions and a bit of not good “creole sauce” splattered on the top plus five not fresh tasting overcooked extra small shrimp arranged in the middle. We shared a couple of biscuits which were good. Neat place so glad we experienced it, but will not return due to the below average food experience.

Disappointed in menu. Website still has a list of desserts but only cake and peach cobbler offered due to covid. What does covid have to do with dessert? Everything anyone wants to change is due to covid! When made reservations I was told no more than a table for eight due to large crowds on weekends. We were seated by a table for 16. Not a problem for covid I assume. Overall not a great special birthday event. Wish I had picked a different restaurant.

Been going to Lucile’s for over 10 years. It was good as usual. Never had a bad meal here. Fiancé had the Alfredo with lobster and I had the roasted chicken. Always good.

We made a NYE reservation… to our surprise it actually wasn’t any busier than any other time we have visited which leaves me very confused how they failed so miserably … but the service would’ve made you assume otherwise…. We waited nearly 35 after ordering our drinks to receive them… at which point they weren’t even made correctly… any modern bartender should know an old fashioned’s ingredients… well not at Lucile’s apparently a cup of ice with a bunch of dessert cherries and some knock off bourbon when I requested top shelf will suffice… my single drink cost more than my actual meal so at this point I paid $20 for maraschino cherries and ice… both steaks were dropped on the table and ditched before we were able to cut into them…. The medium filet was rare at best… and the rib-eye was totally well…. I mean how do you claim yourself a steak house without knowing how to properly serve a steak…. We were never given the opportunity to let our waiter know because it never came back to check on us… never asked if we would like another beverage… I mean it’s NYE idc if the drinks are $40 I want one… thats why I got dressed up and came out…. All around AWFUL experience. The staff was terrible… food terrible… bartender terrible… oh and we were charged for items we never even received… don’t get me started on that and the hassle of having to get a corrected ticket from the waiter who appears ever 55 mins at best….. we bragged on Lucile’s last year… we won’t be back again this year… they definitely lost 4 avid and generous guest… can’t wait to share this to all my social media… thankfully our night improved no thanks to Lucile’s or their staff…. We had a $6 cheeseburger afterwards that blew the socks off the old meat and stanky seafood we were told was our “meal”

Would have been 5 stars if the menu matched the online menu, especially since we realized the menu we were given wasn’t really all that new. The website should have been updated by now. It seems the choices are either a pretty expensive dinner choice or a burger/salad choice. We were expecting a bit more of a variety. What we chose was very tasty, though.

We had a great experience. We really enjoyed the Angry Man Lobster and the Blacked Tenderloin with Lobster. We also tried the lobster bisque, but thought it need a touch of sherry. The dirty martini was the BEST!

Jonathan made every effort to keep our tea filled, our plates timely, just all around personable the shrimp cocktail was spicy & cold, the fried green tomatoes warm & crunchy, we even ordered dessert after Jonathan delivered it to another table.

Made a reservation at Lucile’s because it can get very busy and our group was on somewhat of a schedule. We were seated as we came in with no problems. Lucile’s is a place to sit and enjoy a meal while having plenty of conversation with your group. Was a slight bit slow but all in all a great experience and will do it again.

We typically wait until the last minute to make our reservations - no change this year. Judging by the write-ups and photos and menu, we chose Lucile's. Our waitress was superb and never stopped for even a minute. We have already decided that we will be coming back next year!!!

The cedar plank salmon was superb, and lobster bites did not disappoint. Two of our group got the angry lobster and loved it.
