Nice spot. Service was fast and attentive. Food was pretty good, but not really exceptional. The mashed sweet potatoes were great though.

Each time we go, we are happy with the service and the food. We usually have a group of 6 and sit at one of the round table booths. The restaurant can get noisy so the round booths close you off and allow you the opportunity to chat easily with your group. The burgers and fries are a good value at $11 and are always delicious.

We went there to try some place new. The service was good at the beginning however when our waitress got a large top table we couldn't get her or anyone to refill our water or take the rest our our order. We had alot of questions on the food.. The menu didn't give alot of descriptions of what was included in the food. The food was OK, not great like I had heard. It was a good spot to try but I wouldn't recommend it for another visit.

The biscuits were overrated and over priced. If my father had been there, he would have said, "These would be good to throw at a maddog."

Service and ambiance at the Cary location was excellent....yet the salmon seemed frozen rather than fresh.

However, we'll be back an make a different selection from the menu...

Thanks-

We went for valentines day so we could only get an early or late reservation. We took 5:15PM
and were seated right away when we arrived at 5. Our orders were taken quickly and our drinks came out instantly. Food and service were excellent. Took a desert to go after our after dinner coffees - 32 style. Was a great choice, we will be back!

This restaurant had great reviews but is pretty average. It has wonderful services and fair prices. Probably better for a corporate dinner where you want a classy atmosphere and down the middle food. Sorry! I had really high hopes.

Never hurts to have the $10 coupon but love being able to make reservations and everyone is always so friendly. Server was great and even though it was a very busy night she was very attentive. Love the added ambiance of the hearts in the lights for Valentine's. The food is always good!

The food is very good, but hard to watch your diet with the menu choices. That said, I really liked the fried grit cake - obviously just gave up on light eating! If you want to try some good Southern food, this is a good place for it.

The Jambalaya was recommended. I've had Jambalaya at many restaurants and this was by far the worst. But that didn't top the desert. The White Chocolate-Banana Bread Pudding was so hard and rubbery that my wife and I took one bite and we both said "I can't eat this". Sorry, we won't be back.

Truly great service, our server was on top of our everything, including REMOVING spent items, something many servers fail to do except at plate change time.
The wait for food or beverages was minimal (due to the great service).
Food options are very divers in terms of creative blending of flavors, spices, herbs, locally sourced ingredients.
We ordered a Captain n Coke with lime and I had the French Wine flight.
Appetizer was the Fried Green Tomatoes. The flavor, juiciness, blending of the ingredients was to die for those were so good.
I had the Mahi with a side of flash fried Oysters. Both were extremely well prepared allowing for the natural flavors and juices of the seafood to survive the cooking, then in the presentation the combination of flavors was great.
Rob chose his usual steak and fries. Steak was well prepared, fries were a tad over done.

My wife and I have dined at Lucky32 for many years celebrating birthdays, enjoying get togethers with family, and having cozy lunches in the grill room when we are in Cary. Consistency in all areas makes this a great place to eat. We can honestly say that we have never had a bad dining experience.

The food was not as great as I remember the last time I was at Lucky 32. If I’m honest it felt a bit like eating at Applebee’s or Chili’s. Not what I would expect from a well known chef. But the staff was courteous and timely with their service.

We went for Sunday brunch. Food was very slow in coming. French fries and hash browns were delivered cool and rubbery. One of our party ordered French toast with bananas foster and got only the French Toast, no bananas. Our server was fine, it was the food and the failure to get orders correct that caused the experience to be bad.
