    Food not good. Ordered the smash burger listed as a special. It was supposed to be two patties smashed. Now, inherently, a smash burger is prepared no other way than well-done. But to be on the safe side, I ordered it well-done. What I got was two patties, not smashed, and rare. The patties were barely cooked. It was served on Texas toast, which did not work. The dinner was plate of slop. It was busy, so I figure the cooks were too overwhelmed to care about what they were shoving out of the kitchen. Also, this place has no idea how to make a G&T. Just like when I went there a year ago, they use soda water instead of tonic and put little gin in the drink. On the positive side, the dry-rub chicken wings were good.

    Their Bloody Mary was waaaayyy too spicy. Had to send it back. Found out that they only have the premade mix. I love bloody Mary’s. Don’t mind spicy ones but damn this thing was crazy! The service was great though, food was exceptional! Just wish they would state if there bloody is going to be extra spicy!

    Great restaurant in a convenient location. The food was excellent and reasonably priced, and the service was friendly and efficient. The music was very loud for 2pm on a Saturday, so we did have to yell across the table. We got used to it after a little while but they could definitely take it down a notch or two lol.

    Game day, so it was pretty full and spirited, but for a 20-something-ish crowd that's no problem and probably a plus. Food was what one expects at a price one expects for this kind of venue -- perfectly good, if not amazing. Can't remember our server's name, but she was outstanding. Service overall was good, despite the crowd.

    Third time at Lucy's and great meals all three times. They have a great burger and super friendly staff. It is great to be able to swap out different sides, such as a garden salad, if you are not in the mood for fries. Looking forward to my next visit.

    We love going to Lucy’s the food is great whether you go in the morning or at night. When I have people visiting we always come here. If you find a parking spot it’s a seamless great experience but it can be tough navigating when the lot is full. Lucy’s should look into purchasing more spots for their customers.

    Casual atmosphere and good food. Brussel sprout appetizer was better than most I've had. Hot chicken sandwich was just as described and tasty. Others liked the pulled pork and steak salad. Good beer. Would be curious if they actually surveyed customers to ask if they want the "vibe" of very loud music while dining on a Sunday evening.

    Food was terrible, the short braised ribs was bland and not hot, the chips for the nachos were burnt and fried chicken was also bland. Truffle fries did not have any hint of truffle flavor and the caesar salad was drenched in dressing.
