Had a great dinner at Lucky's - food was great - roasted oysters appetizer was fabulous! Staff was attentive and very courteous. I ad the grouper entree special and the fish was cooked perfectly. I will certainly go back!

This place is awesome. If you are in Roanoke, it’s a must for sure. Fantastic cocktails, shishito peppers to die for, crispy fried chicken, sweet and tender scallops, and many other wonderful dishes. Soooo good! I would go out of my way to go back again.

This was a celebration of my daughter’s graduation from Nursing program. We had a party of eight and from the moment we came through the door until the end of our dinner, everything was perfect. Lucky’s food and service made for a wonderful evening. Definitely a night to remember. Thank you!

Try one of their creatively mixed cocktails, and if you like a little show while being made, sit at the bar. Food flavorings equally creative and appealing. The mussel bowl is a must - plump and served in a delicious broth. Dessert offerings limited but perfect to share, along with after-dinner coffee drink. Server was knowledgeable and attentive without hovering.

A great restaurant. The food was some of the best we have had in Roanoke. Because of the design, expect a noisy atmosphere.

I live in Blacksburg and had heard so many my good things about Lucky and decided to get a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday. It was cozy and elegant upon arrival. We had shared a few of the small plates and tried two of the handmade cocktails. Everything was excellent. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable about the menu, including ingredients and locations. I would recommend going here for sure.

Very good food, especially the appetizers.
Excellent cocktails, and spot-on service ( not intrusive, but available and prompt and informative/helpful). We enjoyed the entire experience.

We went to Lucky for an evening snack after an early dinner. Atmosphere was lively, service was excellent. Great beer, wine and cocktail menu. We ordered 3 appetizers and all were excellent, local ingredients with a twist.

I’ve lived in NY and Boston and the food here rivaled what you would get there. Cocktails were amazing and food was fantastic. The Handsome Devil and Gloria Clemente cocktails with apps (Brussels sprouts, shishito peppers, & mussels) and The Pear Skin Rug and Ther Cardi B with dinner. Ribeye that melts in your mouth and fried chicken that falls off the bone. I don’t even like coffee but I loved the after dinner espresso.

The staff at Lucky is always so accommodating! I'm so glad that shishito peppers are back in season and ribeye was fatastic! The craft coctails are second to none and the pricing is very reasonable with no compromise on the quality of food and drink. Always impressive!

We are “foodies” who were transplanted here from the Northeast. One of our biggest concerns was having restaurants where we could eat and feel we weren’t settling. We had nothing to worry about. Coming to Lucky’s we found an extremely creative bar and dinner menu made from fresh ingredients and served superbly! The added bonus is the friendly staff who greet us as if we were family returning home. They are extremely knowledgeable about all the items on the changing menu and provide excellent recommendations based on our tastes. Lucky’s is definitely becoming a favorite of ours!

We ordered a bunch of small plates. The waitstaff seemed surprised that we weren't ordering mains but it was our first time here and we wanted to try a bunch of items. Everything was delicious except for the strange dipping oil that came with the bread that we ordered. It was supposed to be olive oil infused with garlic but it definitely wasn't olive oil and there wasn't a hint of garlic. Craft cocktails were delicious and we had one too many each. Stand out food items: oysters, kale with bacon, Brussels sprouts.

What a terrific experience! From the appetizer (the large bread plate with all its olives, tapenade, goat cheese, etc. was a great start), to the entrees (scallops and the pork shoulder), it was a meal to remember! The server was attentive (but not hovering), and the prices reasonable. This was a special occasion, but we’ll be back!!

Lucky never disappoints. The menu is simple enough, but the dishes have a complex ingredient blend that is typically extremely well done. The atmosphere in here is vibrant, but not too loud that you can’t have a direct conversation. All of this, add world class cocktails and service, makes for a great night out!
