Always great food and atmosphere
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.
Incredible venue. They did a great job replicating the feel of a restaurant on the coast.
We went to Lucas on Valentine’s Day for my birthday. The food was wonderful and matched by the service.
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.
Restaurant was excellent.
It was our first visit, and it was sensational in every respect Oysters were outstanding both the Wellfleets and the Blue Points were sooo good The steak and lobster 🦞 was cooked nicely In short, this place is a find!! So much so,we are returning this week with our best friends!!!
This was our first time and we really enjoyed the food. Service was good but not exceptional. Great local feel. Owner was attentive to customers as well which made it even better.
Highly recommend ! Food was great, friendly service, clean place with comfortable atmosphere.
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 $26 Lobster roll.
Great food, nice atmosphere and very elegant staff. Will definitely be back.
Nice place, good food, decent service...very expensive for a local small town restaurant. Dinner for two was over 140$
Food is good and service is okay. We will be appreciate to come if service is polite.
Excellent service, nice interior but a tad noisy, food was good.
We came in for Sunday brunch and had a couple of amazing drinks and fabulous meals. Love the atmosphere, the food is fresh and delicious.
Great menu which is off the beaten path. Everything was wonderful. Will certainly be back!
It was my Fiancee’s birthday. Food was out of this world and it was perfect ambience. We will be back soon!
Very hip and vibrant....loved the atmosphere and the way people all around were enjoying themselves. Food was awesome. Would definitely return.
Very good service very good food!
The owner Vince greeted us and was very nice.
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.
Amazing cocktails, oysters and food!! This was our 3rd time and we are always pleased with food and service!
Great food! Great service! Great Owner!
First time at Lucas. Very good seafood restaurant in Newtown. Great neighborhood gem.
Best oysters around. Great bar to eat and socialize at. Super friendly staff.
Voted CT’s best new restaurant in 2018
It is a great place, small thing as one of the meals came lyer than the others, but we will be back, no question, it is a go!
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.
First time there and can’t wait to go back. Food was fresh, tasty and prepared well. If you are a seafood lover, this this the place. Service was outstanding and owner was very friendly and gracious.
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.
My wife and I had a wonderful meal here. The food and service were fantastic. We would definitely recomend to a friend.
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.
Very good overall. I found it to be rather expensive. Dinner and drinks for two was 120 plus tip
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!
Good food and great service. A beautiful little restaurant in Newtown.
Amazing restaurant! Great food and service. Live music was really good.
Great dinner and atmosphere. We will be back. The lobster roll and oysters were amazing.
Delicious food and live music. We had house salads, lobster rolls, and shrimp risotto.
