We do love this little gem. We started with oysters on the half shell which are always great there although on the expensive side. We shared a cheese board and fell in love with the onion chutney that came with it. I am not usually a fan of chutney's, but this one is awesome. We moved on to the crab cake special was very good as it contained no real filler so all crab, but I felt it could have used a bit more spice.

For drinks we had the cube and I really recommend ordering one. If it is not in the menu ask anyway. It is a spiced cube in a smoked glass with a shot of whiskey. The first sip tastes like smoked whiskey, but every sip afterwards tastes a little different as the flavors of the melting cube infuse the drink. If you are into cocktails; this is the best place.

First visit to Lucky and we’re coming back. The appetizer of mussels in a garlic sauce was outstanding as was the cheese board. Our waitress, Kerry, was helpful, knowledgeable and gave good recommendations. The main course of scallops and Black Sea bass were great. Too, was the cocktail I ordered, the Cube which grows on you with each sip.

Their mixed drinks menu is unbelievable and will require several visits to sample them all.

We were staying in Roanoke for a Virginia Tech graduation and made this reservation based on research we did. This was so good! All 4 of us ordered something different and everything was delicious! They even gave the graduate a free dessert! This will be tops on my list next time we are in the area!!

The food here is great and there is a diverse menu that will allow you to try several different things. I would encourage anyone to order several smaller items on the appetizer list just so you can enjoy the variety of what they serve here. The Duck wings were memorable as was the bone marrow, and soft shell crab. There are so many different types of food to try and they did them all well. I have been there twice now and will go back on my next trip to Roanoke. Sit at the bar to eat and watch the bartenders create amazing craft cocktails- adds to the experience.

Great food. I would have liked a few more selections. It was very noisy but you cannot control the other customers. Service was great and wine selection was very good. Parking lot across street was convenient although it costs 5.00 to park.

Lucky was a fantastic find. We tried the cocktail of the day, The Cube, which was incredibly flavorful and enjoyable. The blueberry and bacon salad was unique and very tasty. Both of our entrees were superb, the lightest gnocchi since we were in Italy. We highly recommend Lucky.

Service was wonderful. I had the fried chicken and felt like it was over cooked. Very crispy and part was burnt. Mashed potatoes were warm, not hot! Wish I had gotten steak. Drinks were very good.

Absolutely beautiful food and cocktails. The Korean-flavor inspired barbecued oysters were astonishing. Some of the best restaurant fried chicken I've ever had. Small plates of shishito peppers and beet salad were divine, and wish we'd ordered the brussel sprouts too. Cocktails were creative and boozy and tasty and I wish I'd had time to sample more than two. Service was outstanding. Highly recommended for the entire dining experience.
