    We had a wonderful time at Lucky - not our first time there, by any means, but it never disappoints. The service was five stars - our server was wonderful, kind, and warm. We enjoyed the four course dinner with the wine pairing. It was a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you, Lucky!

    Our first time at Lucky. The restaurant has a cool, upbeat atmosphere. Our waiter, Chris, was great and very professional. We started our meal with raw oysters. I can't say enough about the homemade cocktail sauce. My husband had the fried chicken and I had shrimp and grits. Both were excellent. We will be back.

    Everything about Lucky is outstanding- the food, cocktails, ambience and service! We are from NJ and tried Lucky in Dec as a stopover in Roanoke on a drive to Knoxville. We had to do the drive again and couldn’t wait to get back again. So glad we were able to. Definitely recommend if you are in the area!!

    We always have the best service and experience! We had the steak for the first time tonight, and it was the best steak we have had in Roanoke easily! It was incredible!

    The evening celebrating Mother’s Day with my bride and devoted Mom to our two children and five grandkids was fantastic! Our server, Chris was on top of his game from start to end! We had a wonderful evening highlighted by custom bar favorites, followed by the menu… Rapanhanic oysters, a four course dinner….Cesar salad, lightly fried trout, vegetables and a delicious dessert! Choose your night and go enjoy the evening to the fullest!

    Came into town for a wedding and needed a last minute reservation! The host was amazing and the waitress was even better! The chef has a great menu and great ambiance inside! If I am ever back in Roanoke there will be a second visit! ( the steak and fried chicken was what we ordered!!! Highly recommend)

    We throughly enjoyed our first visit to Lucky. The service was excellent and the food was exceptional too. We cleaned our plates. Prices were a little high but that will not stop us from returning

    Loved it. Always one of our favorite restaurants! This special Gin Dinner experience didn’t disappoint. The drinks were great as always and the food was exceptional as well. The manager and chef came out before each course to talk about the drinks and food pairings that were being served. Service was excellent as always. Thanks again, Lucky, for another fun evening.
