The Lucky Well
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.

The outdoor seating was handled very well. They would do well with some heat lamps, like other restaurants on the street had. But the food was delicious.
Very marginal service, waited for 15 minutes after being seated for a drink order. The Tea didn come until asking twice. Burgers delivered to the wrong person.
Martinis were WAY too dirty and the brisket had a very strange after taste. I was not impressed with that or the coleslaw. I was sadly disappointed
We went to celebrate my mom’s birthday
Some food was delicious but the chicken was very dry. Every thing else was good that we had to eat. Service was outstanding.
We had a nice fall afternoon to eat outside. Our server Maddy was very attentive. Hope to get back inside when the weather cools off. They are doing a good job, considering current restrictions.
Delicious food and cocktails! Fast and friendly service.
Burger was a major downgrade from before. I used to enjoy the burger but this time around it tasted like a frozen patty from the store
We were disappointed as the menu was limited and was not reflected on the website. My husband only eats seafood and we were looking for the seafood options on the menu.
After our table wasn’t ready for our 7:30 reservation we waited 1 1/2 for our food. When it finally arrived we were told that they ran out of plates!!!
They apologized over and over again saying They had a bad night. They discounted our bill but they should have comped the entire thing!! We sat at a table outside in the street and two of the chairs were in water. Wow!! Bad night or not we won’t be back. The food was ok but really not worth it
Portions are plentiful. We ordered so much and we were able to take plenty home. My favorite were the smoked and grilled wings. Amazing flavor. Staff was very friendly. Dining outside was fine but there is definitely road noise.
Great BBQ, terrific cocktails and huge bourbon list
Horrible experience. Bartender was also a server. Took a very long time to get drinks and once they came I was served a Dixie cup with bourbon. Ran out of the appetizer we wanted (burnt ends) and when the brisket came we weren’t given barbecue sauce until everything was cold. Just bad all around
I always have a great meal at The Lucky Well! Food was great, as well as the Kentucky Tea. Definitely recommend the pork bell burnt ends!
Went during COVID and sat inside. The tables were spaced out and everything was managed very well. The food was delicious, as normal! The Alabama White wings are highly recommended! Great cocktails, too.
Everything was very good. The limited menu is probably the only downside. I’ll definitely be back.
My experience was most enjoyable!!!! I will definitely be back. The food was outstanding. My server was pleasant and very professional.
Great food and good times! Great summer selection of cocktails and outdoor seating available.
Sat outside for Ambler Restaurant Week. (Always) terrific food, friendly staff.
Seating set up was perfect! Food was AMAZING (as usual.)
In the midst of a pandemic, Chad and his staff still offer fantastic food and personal service. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Dinner was delicious as always. And outside seating was comfortable. Another great dining experience!
Food always amazing. Nice people! During non Covid times, has a great vibe and bar!
Always fantastic. Food quality is amazing!
As always, brunch was spectacular. Chad does a great job!
We had a great time
First dinner out since quarantine! It was just delightful! The staff made us feel so safe and welcomed and were so friendly. The food was also amazing BBQ. I highly recommend the wings!
We had a wonderful night celebrating our anniversary sitting outside enjoying the weather, food, and conversation. We love the lucky well and the food is amazing! Chef Chad and his staff did an amazing job as they navigated their first night open to diners in months!
Some food was brought out cold. Yes cold, while other food was hot. When told they did take food back and reheat but wished it would have come out hot originally. Everything tasted good once everything was hot.
We had dinner after a movie at the Ambler across the street. I had the brisket sandwich, which was tasty and served with fries. My husband had ribs with sides of beans and onion rings. Our only complaint was the onion rings were drizzled with maple syrup, and were too sweet. Would have been much better without the syrup. Service fine. Drink menu diverse. Service was fine.
Stopped at The Lucky Well before heading across the street for an event at ACTII. The chicken was outstanding. My wife and I enjoyed our meal.
Natalie was our waitress and she was absolutely fantastic. Very attentive and great suggestions regarding the menu. Our drinks were great and so was our food. Overall great experience and can’t wait to come back.
Overall a good experience. The Gabe Stillman Band was playing and that was enjoyable. Food was good overall.
Great service & amazing food. Lots of options for carnivores, vegetarians & kids!
Perfect spot for a wholesome, delicious lunch. Salmon and salad was delicious.
Food was very tasty but it was served just warm. Drinks were very good. Server could have bern more attentive.
The wings were very dry. The nachos were awful. What was the grainy cheesy sauce and Nachos only had a very thin tomatoe, hot jalapeno and cheese. GROSS!! Never again.
Brunch was good and jazz trio played great. Only complaint is the chicken and waffles was the chicken to waffle ratio was off and wish they could have used a boneless cut of chicken. Flavors were good though.
As always, a wonderful time at The Lucky Well! They easily accommodated 11 of us for brunch, and service was impeccable!
Food is great. Love the live music.
Service is always a bit slow here. Over 20 minutes to get our drinks...
Great food, amazing service, fun atmosphere. Can’t wait to go back!
