I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED! The pepper New York steak was tough and stringy - it was impossible to eat anything but a very small piece, and then chew the hell out of it. The pepper sauce was overwhelming and totally obscured the steak flavor. Nowhere near worth $82, even at Lucky's. The Caesar salad was just so-so. Much better Caesars in other local restaurants. The skinny onion rings were quite good. They definitely need to be ordered to share, as once they cool off, they are no longer very tasty, just oily. the chocolate dessert was the best. Mostly very underwhelmed.

That is the slowest worst service I’ve had ever at Luckys. It was her birthday and we had to wait 10 minutes for the dessert and I had already paid the bill.

He rushed upon us to make our initial selections and returned with 90 seconds expecting that to be accomplished. Then, he completely disappeared for 15 minutes. Food was mediocre in comparison with what you would expect for the price. Pretty quiet Wednesday night crowd. Much better steaks at other Santa Barbara venues.

Not sure if due to an understaffing issue or if we were overlooked because we didn’t order alcohol.

When we were finished we had to ask for our check, they just seemed extreme off last night, and it wasn’t very busy at all. When my husband went to the restroom he sai a lot of employees were just sitting in the entry way, talking amongst them. Was very disappointed with our service last night.

Have been SB locals for decades but had not been to Lucky's in many yrs. Brought our visiting out of town son who grew up going to Lucky's and we had a terrific experience... Service, food (ordered 1/2 the menu!) and of course, the very cool and nostalgic old school vibe, made for a fun and memorable night...We will be back again sooner than later! :)

The waitstaff here is the best and they never rushed us and were very attentive. That attention to the dining experience is one of the many things that makes Lucky's stand out from other restaurants. And of course, the food is consistently delicious.

My wife had a pork chop that was extremely salty. Beautiful piece of meat that was cooked perfectly. However, way too much salt to enjoy it. The pork chop came with scalloped potatoes. We tried to substitute for a green vegetable, which the restaurant wouldn’t do. Somehow our server, who was very pleasant, brought us a second potato (baked) after making it clear that we were trying to avoid potatoes. We accepted the baked potato and paid for it versus making a stink about the extra potato. Lucky’s did substitute another dish for the pork chop. It was good. Again, a mixed bag. One dinner terrific; the other inedible. Our service was marginal, despite our server being very pleasant. Overall dinner was a disappointment after having good experiences in the past.

The ceasar salad was good.

There were lots of little things (like having to ask for bread after appetizers had already arrived), but the big issue was the very expensive meat came undercooked and not the quality expected. We ordered the two person tomahawk steak medium rare. It came back very rare, and it was fine but not great meat. At $195, I expected better. I’m not sure I will dine there again. They charge as much as any high end steak house, and it’s not the same experience.

Taste of the food was good but not great especially for the money . The lobster tail was unseasoned and bland , texture good but had to put salt on it . The onions rings , broccolini and potato with gruyere cheese were excellent ! Steak with garlic was okay but overpriced . The grand marnier soufflé smelled of sulfur and tasted bland so that didn’t taste good at all . The coffee had a burnt taste too . The ambiance was peaceful but not scenic . The service was good .

Itwas a fEAST, a celebration - we had martinis, oysters (THE BEST IN TOWN, these oysters!), we ordered the Big Porterhouse, cut into slices center of table, various vegetables, sauces, we were in HEAVEN. Steve was the coolest waiter EVER. And Jen looked after us. We had a memorable evening! My guests had never been to Lucky's before. AMAZING EVENING!

We were sad to be served lunch for 2 vegetarians that amounted to $150 plus tip and the best thing about it was the $20 gin and tonic. First of all, the service in the bar area (where we ate) was slow and honestly a little rude. The French onion soup was lousy, plain and simple, mine has better flavor and I dont even use real beef broth. My Veggie burger was about as good as I make at home when Im in a rush, no better. Everything we asked for, second drink, ketsup, salt and pepper for the salad, ... was forgotten and had to be asked for twice. It was very disappointing and I dont get the hype.

This time we sat in the very back room. I like all the different rooms as they each have a different ambience. We will try for outdoor next time as we have not eaten there. Our server was amazing, really friendly and well versed in many things about the menu. We always have a great time here.

I also had the 7 oz strip with eggs which was fabulous. The sour doe toast was hard though and not good. The Chile was extra with sides of cheddar cheese and onions and corn bread and is big enough to share.
