Dining room is loud. We love the menu and food but the ambiance is not good on the inside at lunch. Outside dining is nice but it is too hot and humid for outside dining this time of year.

With the skills in the kitchen and the wonderful wait staff, not sure why the Lucky 32 Sunday brunch menu is the way it is. Not much on the menu that is fabulous or different......

Corn bread is a nice touch at the beginning - but think that a little bigger portions - and a few more spicy selections would be great.

Cheers,
b

We had an outstanding experience after not visiting this restaurant in several years. Our out of town guests and celebrating birthday boy found the menus to be expansive and they each loved what they ordered for brunch. I found our service and the entire experience to be wonderful, and it was what we expected and then some. Ever-changing menu and local fresh ingredients along with friendly service, what more could you ask for?

The food is always outstanding and the service is great. We went on Mothers Day evening, and even though a very large group was sat in our waiters section, the staff made sure that they didn't skip a beat with us. Someone immediately subbed in and finished our service and took care of us.

This is one of our favorite restaurants and the food is consistently excellent. Our reservation was for 5 p.m. on Mother's Day and we were seated almost immediately. The restaurant was full which is why I noted the 'energetic' noise level but it was certainly understandable for this particular occasion. I have only given the service a 'good' rating as we sensed that our waitress was not too happy to be working on Mother's Day and felt that she was trying to rush us through the meal. Nevertheless, her service was reasonably good under the circumstances and hopefully she had the opportunity to spend part of the day with her own family.

This is normally our go to place, the staff is always great food is normally very good. Real busy on Mothers Day so we understand the poor service. But we decided to order steaks for the special occasion My Bad we new this is not a steak house. We where told the steaks would be thicker if we ordered the salt and pepper steak, we must have gotten the wrong steak, the cut was less then 1/2 inch thick and none of the three where cooked properly (overcooked). The salmon was ordered by one person and was perfect. We never got refills on our drinks. I hope this is just a one time thing.

Mother’s Day and Graduation Weekend together created a challenging opportunity for Lucky32. They rose to the occasion and served a beautiful and delicious meal. Wait Staff were superb!

Lucky 32 has become one of my favorites. The food is unique and delicious and the service is impeccable. Because the staff shares ownership in the restaurant, they are motivated to make it a success. It shows in the food preparation and the friendliness, from the hosts to the servers. Occasionally, the restaurant manager will also circulate among the customers to make sure everything is satisfactory. The food is gourmet quality, usually with an interesting twist to the ingredients to match the presentation. The menu changes according to the season and includes a thoughtful variety of American southern cuisine, some vegetarian, as well as a few surprises. I usually can't get past the tempting specials, though. This place is a winner.

Beautiful spot on the patio- great server; good strong cocktail , outstanding homemade bread as usual❤️however- the swordfish special was recommended so 2 of us ordered that - just awful- curled up, dry with a big hunk of uncuttable gristle. Ug- should have sent it back!
Great strawberry pie to die for!

The food was above average. This time around was little disappointed. The food was just OK...not great. I had a business meal with 6 adult men and we were put in a long booth, which was still tight. Didn't like that we had the view of the kitchen from our table. Got to see them clean the food of the dishes and shove them in the dishwasher. That wasn't very pleasant. Like I said, I have usually had good experience with Lucky 32, for some reason they didn't do well this evening.

We enjoyed our visit to Lucky 32. We are new to the area and we are glad we found this restaurant! The food is delicious and the service is good. We had reservations for 6:15 but we needed to change them to a later time and they were very accommodating. We appreciated that very much. We will visit again for sure! And we would recommend it to friends!

In town from out west, though annual trips to visit my grandparents in eastern Carolina developed my taste for barbecue and greens. Have the farm-to-table version was a step up from what I've enjoyed historically and a step well worth taking! Service and portions were excellent and we were so ensnared we had to take pints of meat and voodoo sauce back home with us. And I smoke my own pork butt on a big green egg, so that's saying something! Well done to all...

I went there with a group of friends for brunch and ordered the slow roasted pork belly. It was okay, but I wasn’t blown away. The server was also very distracted and forgot a lot of things including my friends 1 years old child’s lunch. Overall it was okay and having had a good experience before I would go back, but it wasn’t the best experience

In a word, phenomenal. My experience yesterday for a business meeting was outstanding. The service was attentive, but unobtrusive. Everything came out quickly & the food was so delicious. It was a creative mix of flavors - pork belly, white bean puree, and strawberry chutney! So tasty.
The atmosphere is elegant, but not stuffy.
I will be back again.
