Food Network Star and restaurateur Chad Rosenthal has been recognized as one of the most talented purveyors of barbecue in the Delaware Valley.
His critically acclaimed Memphis-style ribs, brisket, smoked chickens and side dishes are unquestionably some of the best barbecue one can find north of the Mason Dixon line. Chad expanded his menu and brand, to include comfort food, a full à la carte menu, a full service Whiskey bar and a live blues lounge...

The bar at The Lucky Well features a top-shelf whiskey collection, which naturally compliment the flavors coming out of the kitchen, along with craft-brewed beers and classic cocktails. Cocktails will include some of the ingredients used in the cooking process.

Atmosphere was great, but food was disappointing. Barbecue should be the star, but brisket was barely edible with fat and gristle. Second visit in a couple of years with same poor dining experience.

I went on a slow night which may have been quieter than usual, so the noise level on my review may differ. The service was great and so was the food. I can’t wait to go back!

The place was nice, the service was great, the ribs were delicious but the brisket was way too dry.

I will come back to check other foods like the flank steak sandwich.

Smoked meats were tender and seasoned perfectly. The place is alacarte so it gets very pricey when ordering but the sides complimented the BBQ. The roasted Brussels sprouts were surprisingly the best of what we ordered. Although we came for restaurant week the place didn't offer any true specials which were disappointed by. All in all it was a great evening just a bit pricey for BBQ.

We had a great time at The Lucky Well celebrating my dad's 82nd birthday! The food and drinks were great and our server was the best! The Mexican Cauliflower appetizer was especially delicious.

I had my 4 week old daughter with us and the staff was very accommodating - even let me use the empty back room when she started to cry so I didn't have to go out in the cold!

Lively atmosphere, but menu limited to very fatty foods. No healthy options other than a tough kale salad. It would be nice if something healthy was offered for those in the group interested. Otherwise, a fun place to be.

The atmosphere was pretty good. We love live music and it was a cute place to enjoy it however we couldn't get any seats near the band area so we didn't stay long. The food I have to admit was really just so-so. I had a very dry BBQ brisket. I was pretty surprised that the dinner wasn't a little better considering the reviews I had seen. Maybe just an off night for the chief.
