49th anniversary dinner for two. First time back to Lucky 32 since the pandemic. Reservation process easy.
The food was as good as we had remembered it. Our server was very attentive without being obtrusive and threw in a free dessert for our anniversary. A very nice evening

Definitely not the place for a quiet intimate dinner. The food is good, therefore, it's a very popular restaurant, always crowded, but very noisy. My father has hearing aids and the noise was too much for him.

Friend had trout and collard greens. I had the roasted veggie plate. Another bad the burger. It was all delicious, the waitress was super nice, and I can’t wait to go again. We have eaten there for special occasions such as Thanksgiving dinner, and even their veggie plate is something special. I did not have the black bean cakes with sour cream this time, but I want to go again very soon because it was hard to pass them up.

Every time I've been here, it's been an amazing experience. Our company had a visiting consultant come in and we wanted to treat him to a nice dinner, so we made a reservation for 8 people. We ended up having a few people not able to go, so we assumed we'd have more room at the table. We arrived early and had a drink at the bar. When asking about certain drinks, the bartender told us several times that she didn't like what we were asking about, it seemed that she didn't care for any of the drinks on the menu and she seemed annoyed by us. Instead of a little extra space at the dinner table, we had 6 adults, two of which are larger people, crammed into a round booth at the back. Our server was very inattentive; we were finished with our appetizers before they even took our dinner order. My salmon was dry and overcooked, the green beans had no flavor. When we finished, we were asked if we wanted dessert or coffee. We turned it down, then waited an additional 30 minutes before they brought our check. The only reason I'd come back is that I've had wonderful experiences here in the past, my colleagues will probably never eat here again.
