    Once again Lucky 32 delivered....delicious food and great service. The meatloaf is out of this world and the short ribs were the best we've ever had. The only downside were the string beans....a little undercooked, but other than that, very very good.

    Wanted to love it. Used to love it. But was disappointed at this visit on April 13, 2004. Years ago this was one of the nicer restaurants in Cary but the inside is dated now. It almost felt like a diner. The service was unbelievably slow - on a positive she was very polite. She even brought us a brownie for our anniversary. Unfortunately it was burnt on the edges - the only comparable taste is the black part of a burnt roasted marshmallow. The rest of the food was average at best. Catfish was lacking seasoning. Ranch dressing was bland and runny. Sweet potatoes had a biter aftertaste. Collards were not seasoned well. Braised short-ribs were good as were the mashed potatoes.

    Still executing at the highest level, their southern hospitality is outstanding! Doesn’t matter if it’s us to empty nesters for brunch or fun moms and kids morning out. Try them, you won’t be disappointed.

    Four of us and a toddler went for lunch. Friendly greeting and seated promptly. Extra large booth and we had plenty of space. Waiter very nice and excellent service: bread and butter and beverages arrived quickly. Everyone ordered different items from the menu and all were delicious: salmon, shrimp poboy, fried shrimp; kids chicken strips & fries and a sandwich. Complimentary birthday chocolate pie and ice cream! Even the toddler was well behaved!

    Always pleased with our experience. Our wait staff on April 11 at 6pm was the absolute best! I regret not getting her name. Food was excellent! The asparagus and wild mushroom purloo was fantastic! My husband enjoyed the jambalaya which is always good. We also enjoy the Sunday brunch.

    As always, a wonderful experience to dine at Lucky 32. Our server was warm and attentive, but unobtrusive. All four of us enjoyed our meals -- grilled salmon / the snappy chicken sandwich / and jambalaya. Busy and a bit noisy, but in a positive energetic way -- did not interfere with our conversation.

    Food was great, but we felt rushed to eat as the waitress kelp coming to the table and the place was empty when we arrived. We heard her state to another co worker that she needed to clean the table we were eating at.

    Food was excellent and the accosted my request to get a dinner entree at lunch. Only complaint is I asked for the sauce to be on the side and it came on my catfish. I told the waiter several times when placing my order to ensure it wasn’t on the fish. I knew I wouldn’t eat all of it in one sitting and knew it wouldn’t reheat well with sauce on it. When it came to the table, there was sauce on it and I told the waiter. He shrugged it off and didn’t offer for it to be remade or corrected. It also took quite some time for us to receive our entrees. Overall, good experience and excellent food.

    Our reservation was for 5:30 pm and they seemed not ready to wait on patrons at bar tables. Of course, they had a big table that appeared to be more important than just me & my husband. This used to be a nice "date night" restaurant, but it has gone downhill in last couple of years. We have tried dining here a couple of times; however, it is really just not worth the money. We were highly disappointed in our experience!!!

    Clean, bright and menu good Service was good Music was to our liking but the volume was like being in a disco….not enjoyable at all if you plan on talking to anyone at your table. Half that volume would be great background music and allow for conversation that doesn’t require screaming at your group.

    Ordered food and waiter disappeared, did not come to table after bringing soup. Passed by table several times with no contact. Had to ask another waitress for the bill. Another staff person came with the bill, I paid and she asked me not to steal her pen. Very poor service, worst experience we have had and we have eaten there quite a few times.

    We were disappointed that despite making a reservation several days prior to our visits that we had to wait 20 minutes before being seated. Apart from this initial problem everything else was excellent and our server, Jessi, was absolutely flawless and catered to all of our needs. We are regulars for Sunday brunch and will continue our weekly visits.

    It’s obvious the management team has done little to no training of the wait staff. Food was delivered to our table, no plates cleared, no refills. Only saw our waitress again when we flagged her down for our check.
