    The food was fabulous. Some of the best cocktails. If you enjoy a good margarita order Mr. Lucky’s. We were a group of eight ladies and we pretty much ordered a little bit of everything. It was all very delicious. We capped off the dinner with the Soufflé

    Toddlers screaming and running around is not what I call a relaxing dinner. Service and food like always is excellent but wished the staff had said something to the parents that were obviously not parenting.

    The food was very good. The lobster roll is tasty but a bit dry. The fried chicken is plump and juicy although the french fries were served cold. Despite the restaurant being only half full, service was slow.

    We had many brunches at Lucky’s and it was always delicious. Dinner however was a complete different story. The salads were sub par and the recommended wine was ok at best. The food quality was very disappointing.

    We had a wonderful mid day lunch. Our server took care of us and our two kiddos very well. No need to request anything. Additional- he and the staff were always on top of it. And the cheesecake with warm berries- absolutely creamy perfect.
