    My friend who had never been to Lucky in the years he has lived her is moving and I said, you have got to try the best chicken and mashed potatoes ever with greens! We were so excited! The crispy Brussels were too wet from some sauce so they were not good to me. The fryers broke right after our order was taken and we couldn’t order the only dish we wanted. Another favorite dish I like a lot is the pork chops but they have been removed from the menu. It was not a good day as we left but I hope to return. I will call first to make sure I can get my favorite dish!

    One of the best in Roanoke. High quality food with superb cocktails. Get “the cube” or pearskin blanket. You honestly can’t go wrong with any selection. The waitstaff is equally outstanding, knowledgeable, funny, fast. We will be back again and again!

    The menu has changed since our last visit and is quite limited. Some of the items were excellent, some were disappointing.

    Great ambiance. Monet our server was excellent. Her drink recommendation was spot on. Food was good but I feel like it was missing something. Hard to describe. The food options are a bit limited. Drinks were great overall. Would come back for sure.

    What a lovely little place tucked into downtown Roanoake. My daughter and I celebrated her new job there in the window table with delicious craft cocktails and entrees. Service was friendly and thoughtful. We'll be back.

    Frequently dine out at Lucky's and always enjoy the atmosphere, drinks, food, and service. Like to sit at the bar and watch the bartenders at work, it's like dinner and a show. Never cease to be amazed at how they make all those different drinks without referring to guide. Every effort is made to accommodate reservations and seat people on time. When a glitch does occur, it doesn't take long to get back on track. Sitting at the bar provides an opportunity to meet and talk to new people and conversation is sometimes facilitated by the bartenders. Always an enjoyable experience.
