Our server was outstanding. The food was very qood with some dishes like the mussels were incredible. Place was packed/parking lot was full. Had to wait for a table even though we had a reservation. Specials were not priced so I was a little surprised with Fish & Chips that was $40.

Food was lovely. Oysters fresh and served with a bracing minionette. Branzino was fine although not sure all of the onion confit was needed. Those island clam chowder and scallops very tasty and the coffee was great. Nice wine by glass selection and attentive service. They honored our request for a warm table by giving us the one right in front of kitchen. I am sure it was the warmest in restaurant, but it was still cold and the restaurant was full. Please turn the heat up.

This is a "gem" of a restaurant. The menu is outstanding for fish lovers...everything was cooked to perfection. While the Menu is mostly fish, they do make their own pizzas and serve a great steak for those not into fish.

The owner stopped by 3 times to chat with us and his wait staff made us feel like this was our home. The interior setting is very inviting with relaxing decor and most importantly the sound levels are very low for relaxed conversations.

My wife and I plan to return again and again to sample more of their extensive menu.

Very nice restaurant, good atmosphere, great servers, very helpful. Menu is great with plenty of fresh seafood choices. Would like them to add a couple of lunch options that include the lovely seafood, perhaps in a pie or pasta mix

One of our meals came out cold and overcooked. Raw bar was very good, but for the price it better be. I expected more for a $26 Lobster roll.

We loved everything about Lucas. The ambiance was lovely. On the small side which made the whole experience more personal. Service was perfect. Food delicious. If you are NOT a seafood eater you don’t have too many choices, but enough that you will be happy.

Wanted so much more from Lucas Local. The appetisers and entrees were mediocre at best, over salted or incredibly bland. In all fairness the drinks and oysters were great. Parking is tight.

I took my son & daughter in-law for birthday dinner on a Friday night. They shared oysters from the raw bar and said they were excellent. One got the pasta dish with shrimp and said it was very good, as was the cod dish. I had the scallops and some were ok, some overcooked. I feel the dish was overpriced for the amount of food I received. The other two dinners at our table were plentiful. I also feel the Tiramisu was overpriced for a dessert.
The service was very good and everyone working there was smiling and friendly. I think that says a lot about the management. As the menu changes with the available seafood, I would try the restaurant again.
The raw bar is something unique and seems to be very good so I think Lucas Local will be around a long time.

The food was excellent. My wife is a big fan of oysters and she was very impressed with them. I had the risotto with shrimp and it was excellent as well. The place just has a warm, inviting feel to it. The service was impeccable. Our server John was tremendous. We will definitely be going back there again.

First experience and we will be back. Food was great. Oysters were plump and fresh with a lovely mignonette sauce. Scallops beurre blanc also lovely, although haricot vert were essentially raw. Scallops risotto and coffee also excellent. My only complaints were that the waiter was a little aggressive—-made me feel like they were trying to close the kitchen at 7 30. And, it was a little cold.

Had Bucatini and Shrimp... just not good. My wife had Scallops - that were so so but for the price nothing else on the dish?
Service was very slow.
It's a shame - first time trying but won't be back.

I will not review a restaurant. I will recommend or not.
I recommend Lucas Local. If you like good food and wonderful people serving it, waste no time and make a reservation.
After my first visit, I believe, I will return until I try everything on the menu.
Thank you Vincent!
