    We had an amazing time at Lucky Rooster. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and eager to provide a special dining experience. We are going a second time before our week in HH is over! Highly recommend the Stuffed Eggs, Crab Cakes (seasoned to perfection) and the Bisque De Poisson. Yum!!

    If you haven’t tried Luck Rooster lately, you need too. One of the best dinner experiences we’ve had in a while. Great menu, extra care by staff and food was right on! Four of us each had different entrees- all of which were VERY good. Great crab cakes, short ribs, trout and Bisque. Do yourself a favor and go!!

    The only reason I am not giving this review five out of five stars, is because someone at the restaurant flashed the lights multiple times at 9 PM. This was obviously an effort to tell us that it was time to leave, but we felt that it was rude.

    Hi JenniferC, my name is Riley and I am the manager here at Lucky Rooster Kitchen + Bar. I wanted to personally apologize that you felt pushed to leave your dining experience early with us. Our lights have been malfunctioning the past week and I was working on them, in now way was it meant to distract or clue you to prematurely leave, I do hope you will come and visit us again soon.

    The chicken was overcooked. Dry. 2). I was surprised that the mashed potatoes were served plain. If no gravy then I would think, butter. My son had the Braised short rib which was good. The portions were fine. We told the waiter and he stated that I should have said something. He could have taken it back. That is nice but it disrupts the whole meal. What about my son's dinner?

    It was restaurant week, so my husband ordered off of that menu. His steak was supposed to come with warm potato salad, and carrots. When we received our dinners, his carrots were lukewarm and the potato salad was cold. When our waitress asked how our meals were, we mentioned the cold potato salad And they brought us out a large portion of warm potato salad. They were very nice about it! Other than that the food was excellent.

    We went for Restaurant Week, one ordered from the special menu and one ordered from the main menu. Overall the food was good, nothing that was a big wow factor. Our service wasn’t great, took 25 minutes to get a beer and the server kept saying he was checking on it, courses were a little slow in the delivery, but other tables seemed to be getting better service so I think it was just our server having an off night. We had been wanting to try the restaurant, glad we did, but I’m not sure we will go back. I feel there are restaurants with similar menu at more reasonable prices. Atmosphere was typical restaurant, again, no real wow, nice, not noisy

    A great first visit to the Lucky Rooster. Some items to highlight would be the crab cakes, bacon wrapped quail, succotash, and tuna tartare. We can also provide two little thumbs up on the children's menu. Great wine selection and be sure to try their seasonal mulled wine! We will be back next time in HHI!

    The place is very beautiful. Service was outstanding. We were a large group and they did awesome accommodating us and taking our orders. Drinks were good. The food was ok. We ordered the bone marrow, chicken livers and 2 salads as starters, everything was good but nothing outstanding. For our main course, 5 people ordered steak frites it was good and standard. 2 ordered the shrimp and scallops (that were cooked perfectly) but it was spicy and really had not other flavor profiles. The braised short rib was delicious. The pig was good but we agreed that was nothing to write home about. The fish soup, again same sentiment. Trout had no salt. Mussels were yummy. Overall it was a good experience but nothing outstanding.

    When I booked my reservation there were 2 choices for Christmas dinner, the $120 and the off the menu selection. Upon arriving at the restaurant we were only offered the Christmas menu selection. It wasn’t a great value for one of our party since that member would not normally partake in the wine selections. At that point we discussed leaving but realized there would not be any other options for a Christmas meal for us.

    Server and Manager were attentive and apologetic regarding a few mistakes in the kitchen. Chicken livers a huge swing and a miss. Way over breaded and overcooked. Inedible. Couldn’t find the livers amongst the torched breading. Arugula salad was gritty-not washed. A big no-no for a salad. Raw oysters were shucked properly and sweet and my companion enjoyed the duck fat fries.

    Our meal was the first we've eaten there since returning to Hilton Head. It was a superb experience. Our server, A.J., was attentive, friendly, highly professional. The manager, Riley, was welcoming and friendly and helped make us glad that we'd decided to dine with them. The food was wonderful, and we both enjoyed the shrimp and scallops. The Wednesday half-price wine special allowed us to splurge on a fine bottle of Belle Glos Pino Grigio, so I anticipate we'll take advantage of this opportunity in the future. Highly recommend!

    We had what seemed to be a new server - not that he got anything wrong, but he just didn't seem very confident. Three women one table away from ours seemed to be having trouble as they sent things back a couple of times. Now, that could just have been them...they seemed high maintenance. My Cesar salad was a little over dressed. The restaurant was cold, which was bad as it was an exceptionally damp and chilly day out.

    First time diners at Lucky Rooster in Hilton Head Island. Food was good, menu was somewhat limited. Local Lowcountry ingredients which was great. Had two glasses of wine that had to go back due to lipstick. Manager handled it excellently. Bar looked nice, well stocked. All in all, very good.

    The chicken livers are SO amazing and unique. Lightly breaded on a thick brioche bread slice, lovely light drizzle of something exquisite and slivers of green apple. Amazing flavor and so reasonably priced. Fish sandwich was hard to eat. Thick slice of Mahi slides right out of the sub shaped roll. Cassie is an amazing waitress. Everyone very attentive.

    Casey- Thanks so much for the great review and we very much appreciate your support. We also appreciate the feedback on the Lowcountry Fish Sandwich. We look forward to seeing you again soon and so glad to see Cassie was great once again! All the best, David
