Main entree was great the fried green tomatoes were not worth $8 5 slices slightly cooked sliced tomatoes. For $8 I can fried half a bushel green tomatoes in butter and flour. 5 slices isn’t even a full tomato. Totally not worth paying for.

I’m sorry but I was disappointed compared to previous visits. Silverware was dirty, only offered one drink at the beginning and waitstaff forgot food - had to ask. Taste was bland not like it used to be. I really was hoping Father’s Day would have been WOW.

Honestly, I wasn’t impressed, nor was my family. Left a 30% tip, waiter nice but extremely slow service. Food was mediocre and bland, disappointing.

We showed up on time our table was not ready so we were told wait. However 4 other groups came in after us and were seated immediately. I will find another restaurant for Father's Day. This one sucks.

Considering it was Father's Day and the place was mobbed, the noise level was very reasonable. Service was good and pretty timely, again, considering how busy they were. Food was very good. A pleasant experience, as always, and altogether a very good value for the food quality and ambience.

Very disappointing. We have eaten at L32 numerous times but this will likely be the last. To start with, it took an extraordinarily long time to get sparking water from the bar, much less the 2 cocktails that were ordered. Probably 20 minutes to get drinks. Bread was delivered but not a sole checked on until bread was finished and waitress Deangelis by to ask if we were ready to order. Apps were ordered, no bread was offered. Apps delivered (fried okra, fried green tomatoes, tomato salad) but no share plates were brought. Finally flagged down a random waiter to get us some. Apps were consumed and the wait began. At least 20 -25 minutes passed, no one checked on the table until finally our waitress stopped by to clear and tell us our food was 2 minutes behind her. Another 10 minutes and food arrives. First off, my steak with fries and collards was presented as steak, green beans and something else not ordered so that was removed. Other dishes were served. Bow tie pasta was meh, catfish was good, grilled chicken was good but most disappointing were the famous L32 collards. I found one piece of country ham in mine and the drastically needed salt and vinegar. Which I would have asked for(no steak sauce or condiments were offered) so the went uneaten. Ribeye was under seasoned and boring. All in all I wished we had gone to La Fiesta instead of dropping over $150 at L32 for dull food and poor service

Restaurant environment was nice enough. Waitress was nice, attended promptly to our drink and food order but lacked friendliness. A fly landed in my water, she got me another glass but no apology. I didn’t drink it because I felt there was a chance the fly was removed from the water and that’s all. Sad but that’s how I felt because of the lack of an apology in the first place. The kale and beans was horrible, maybe it should be replaced with something better tasting and appealing to the eyes. I wish I had more positive things to say but I feel you deserve honesty. Thanks

We have been coming to all the restaurants in this group since the early 90's, as they were built of course. Lucky 32 has always been a favorite. This night the food was average at best. Temps on steak incorrect by a long shot, Okra came out raw, braised chard came out stewed! The cooking has been the problem on our last 4 visits. In addition, I imagine since the bar is far drinks take too long to get to table. My father-in-law wanted another and by the time it arrived so did dinner.. He no longer wanted it. Also, why would they serve a Southern Mule in a juice glass and not a copper cup. This is a finer restaurant and one would expect that. The drinks are over-priced as compared to other similar restaurants. The menu certainly needs an overhaul as well. Same old same old.. Some new seasonal dishes and that is all... Really disappointed in our last few visits. We like the patio, so we will most likely go there for a glass of wine and apps, and that is all.

I found Lucky32 to be pretty hit or miss. Some of the food was good and some was actually pretty terrible. The two of us ordered appetizers and a main course. Some of the hits were the fried okra (they called it okra popcorn and it was a bit under seasoned), the green beans as a side, and the fried catfish. Some of the misses were the tomato bisque (very under seasoned, dry chicken in the bisque, too acidic), the pintos and chow chow (the pintos has zero salt. It was not good at all.), and the fried grit cakes. I really wonder what the story was as so much of it could have been improved with just a bit more seasoning. It may be to others’ liking but it certainly wasn’t to ours. The service and ambiance was quite good all around. I likely would not dine here again nor could I really recommend it to others.

This was our first time at this restaurant. We went for Sunday Brunch. The menu options were extensive and unique to a typical Sunday Brunch menu. We ordered the wild caught shrimp and okra, peach French toast (which was made with think slices of a baguette-type bread), bacon, home fries, biscuits and Suffolk Chicken. All were very delicious. Our coffee cups and water glasses were continually topped off. It was rainy, but the outside patio looked really nice and we would love to go back another day to sit outside. Definitely recommend!

Always great; for the past 30 years. We were able to be seated although we were early for our reservation. Our food was timely (party of 9), delicious and appropriately priced. Our waiter was attentive and available without being intrusive. I so appreciated the restaurant allowing us to bring in a special graduation cake. Wonderful brunch/lunch celebration!

Food was good not great. The steak was thin for a 16 oz and the Swordfish cut was thin and small.
The collards were very good.
Would I go back for a celebration, no because the food was just OK. The service was very good.

Considered filing a complaint with the City of Greensboro due to the huge amount of flies - 4 -6 when we sat down, then surged up to around 10 when the food came. had to get an extra napkin as i used the 1st napkin as a fly swatter. Totally over the top

The food, as usual, was very good. If there would be any concern it would center in the training of the wait staff who reached across the table to serve plates and were not as readily available as in the past. This actually is somewhat unusual for Lucky 32. Still is one of my "go to" places.

Very poor service. No one ever came to refill water. We asked a server walking by and she refilled water but with no ice. Had to ask for ice. Coffee came out barely warm for all four of us. We had to send back and ask for hot coffee. Then waited for new pot to make.
I ordered the artichoke corn cakes. I like spicy foods but these had some very strong spice that wasn’t tasty to me.
All in all, the worst meal I have had at L32 in all my years of going there.
