One of the best restaurants around! Dined there many times and will continue to do so. Always excellent service and food.
Always exceeds expectations
Every time we've been to Lucky 32's has been a great experience. The food is always superb, consistent and moderately priced. The best asset is the staff! They're always on top of the game and have the perfect timing and attention to make the dining experience so pleasurable.

Wonderful waitress. Wonderful Deep South dishes. Great local beer and wine. Great ambiance. A lovely dinner.
Expected a great lunch
We made reservations for a late lunch and were surprised to see brunch/breakfast items on the menu. That was a nice bonus, even though none of us ordered them. We loved the fried green tomatoes and the pork rinds with cheese that we got as appetizers. The meatloaf was so-so, but the shrimp salad, shredded pork sandwich and pork belly sandwiches all got rave reviews. The asparagus soup was delicious,very fresh asparagus taste with a hint of cheese . The restaurant is very modern and chic inside, our server was attentive, the prices were reasonable and overall it was a great experience. If we lived in the area, we would definitely go back to check out the dinner menu, unfortunately, we are from out of town.

very mediocre wines very bland food just nothing special here
Enjoyed a gathering together. Our server was fabulous, just the right touch of fun and attention. Food was great, with Southern flavors in good harmony. We dined a bit early, and as the restaurant filled up, we could still here the soundtrack: perfect music to set the stage. Go and enjoy!
Wonderful Contemporary Southern Cuisine. ...
Wonderful Contemporary Southern Cuisine. I had the pork belly from the Spring menu and it was wonderful. Their seasonal menu is always the best choice. If not, the meat loaf or bean cakes are great back ups.
Terrible service but gem for food
The service terrible, but the food was just absolutely amazing I would not go back unless it's was a very special occasion .. amd when I have 2 hrs to eat...

I've been popping in and out of Lucky 32 when I'm in Greensboro over the last 15 years. I am always a little anxious that the luster may have faded a little, that the menu may have become predictable, that service may have become a little slack. Instead, from that first warm greeting as I walk in the door, Lucky 32 remains an exceptionally delightful experience in dining out. I don't know many places that serve you food this freshly sourced and creatively prepared without making you feel like a spectator at your own supper. At Lucky 32, though, the ambiance and the staff make you feel as welcome as in your mama's kitchen, but with nicer napery (and no need to offer to dry the dishes!) The Pickled Plate was an outstanding appetizer--crisp, tart, clever. The brunch special, a corned beef and scrambled egg po'boy was divine, and Mamaw's Scuppernog Wine Jelly with Custard is something everyone needs seconds of. Thank you, Lucky 32; I feel lucky to know you!

For the first time ever the crab cake was not up to par. Needed a little more crisptness.
Mother's Day dinner very disappointing!
I sat out on the patio with a reservation for me and my daughter for 7:00 this past Mother's Day. I was embarrassed and disappointed about the appetizer and the service. We ordered the fried artichoke hearts as an appetizer, they came with so much deep fat fried batter, we couldnt even taste the artichoke hearts in them plus they were presented very sloppy on the plate. We then had to wait AN HOUR for our entrees to come, didn't serve that to us until around 8:15. The servers NEVER gave us any bread and I finally had to ask for bread after our entree came. We must have had four different people bring things to our table, late with the bread, entrees, as stated before. My daughter ordered the strawberry salad as well as the Potato cakes . When the potato cakes came, they were also very fried, and were too greasy for her to eat. She took them home, and the next day, scraped off some of the grease, and baked them for a while in the oven so they wouldn't be so oily. All in all, very disappointing!
The food was great, the seating was quick. My biggest complaint was the noise. We were a table of 7, and I could not hear someone speak at the other end. The background music was too loud for a crowded restaurant.

Great choice. Even on Mother's Day!! Which was busy but all good. We had a big group and everyone loved it.
Brunch with Mom
We took Mom here for Mother's Day Brunch and all of us enjoyed our meal and visit. Mom's omelette was just what she wanted, my wife's breakfast potatoes were the best ever and my poached eggs were cooked to perfection. We were seated promptly and the service was good, without hovering.
Mother's Day celebration
Took both my mother and my wife's mother on Saturday before Mother's Day. Wonderful experience, great service and of course the food was perfect.
My family enjoyed a quite quaint dinner after my daughter's graduation. The service was AMAZING! Our server took very good care of us. She was knowledgeable of the menu items, made great suggestions, and was a pleasure to talk with. My husband's favorite item was the sweet tea. Living in NC our whole lives, we know how tea should be, and Lucky 32 has found perfection! The food was all delicious and we will be going again.
New take on traditional southern fare
Looking at the menu, you'd think you were going to have traditional southern food, but Lucky 32 offers a cut above - far above. We shared fried green tomatoes which were by far the best I've ever tasted, lightly breaded, well-seasoned and with tomatoes that were still a little crunchy. My root beer marinated beef brisket was out of this world. Sides (mashed sweet potatoes and asparagus) were well-prepared and tasty. Even the fresh, warm bread was delightful. We've never been disappointed with the food or the service at Lucky 32. My only wish is that it would have been a bit quieter. It was too chilly to eat on the patio, but that does tend to be a quieter place.
Very nice for celebration
Food, service, ambiance were all lovely. We were there to celebrate and our server was very competent. Each guest was pleased with their choice (shrimp and grits, salmon, brisket). We all shared a taste of the Hummingbird bars for a sweet close to our meal. *I'm hopeful the restaurant will attend to a service issue we brought to their attention.*

I have never had a bad meal here. The black bean cakes are delish! I wish chicken and dumplings was on the menu year round.
Good southern cooking
Wonderful shrimp and grits was the highlight of a great meal at Lucky 32. A fantastic sauce enhanced the flavor of the succulent shrimp. The scallops were equally great, seared beautifully without over cooking and served with asparagus that was grilled tender crisp. Both my husband and I were very pleased with our meals. Would definitely return when back in Greensboro.
Lucky 32 is our go-to place for special occasions!
Food is always great, and the desserts outstanding!
My family celebrated my niece's graduation at Lucky 32. Everything went smoothly and the food/service was fantastic. This was the perfect place to celebrate!
Not worth the $
We selected this based on tripadvisor reviews and not too pricey. Was very disappointed. I've had the tomato soup at the Raleigh location (now closed) and remember it was one of the best ever. However, this version was disappointing--sharp/acidic and not smooth and chicken was SO tough that I could barely chew it. The chicken mushroom pasta was bland and pasta was rubbery. I did not complain b/c I was in a group of 4 and it was a special evening so I just kept quiet and paid the bill. They said their beef tips were good so I was glad they enjoyed their meal--here from NJ to pick up daughter from UNC G. The waiter was very attentive and good.
Quite good food!
The food at Lucky 32 is really quite good, and the varied seasonal menu makes it always interesting. I had the catfish twice and love it. The breading was crisp, the fish fresh and delicious. This time, I also had the mashed potatoes which are exceptional. Others in our party enjoyed their meals as well--the brisket, the jamalaya were both good as was the sausage and bean soup. Portion sizes are generous as well. Our only negative note is that the temperature in the restaurant is really too cold for enjoyment. Other diners were wearing their coats, rubbing their arms, etc. I don't understand why they keep it so cold. We all wore warm clothes, knowing about the ambient temperature, but management should do something about this problem.
Always a good experience
We've been patrons for years and it's our favorite Sunday brunch location. I love the seasonal menu changes and the standards that are always there. The service is great, too.
My Birthday Choice Every Year!
I love the seasonal menu that Lucky 32 puts out.. and it never disappoints! My birthday is always around the time their spring menu comes out and it is always so delicious. While the restaurant is set up to accommodate large groups, there are also many little booths that you can slip in to and have a quiet and intimate dinner as well. We always mention in our reservation that we are there to celebrate a birthday and a great table is always reserved for us and they are generous enough to include a dessert for the celebration. Great food, great staff, GREAT PLACE!
Excellent food, fantastic service, and wonderful ambiance! Loved the southern theme, seasonal menu. We had a huge group (30+) and the service was impeccable!

A wonderful menu and excellent service. This time was lunch with my mother on the outside patio. Beautiful environment and exceptional food. We live in charlotte but this is a must stop when we drive through.
Lucky To Have Lucky 32
We each had catfish with a side salad, grits and greens. Service was very good. Meals were prepared as they should have been. Catfish portion was very good as were the portions for the salad and greens…would have liked some more grits :) Restaurant is busy, a wee bit noisy and that's as it should be in a local, southern style restaurant. It is a popular option for us and we will definitely return.
We have been to Lucky 32 many times in the past and have always been pleased. I have always enjoyed their brunch. This past visit was a true disappointment, they had one of the best original eggs Benedicts in town. They have taken it off their menu, the replacement of fried green tomato eggs Benedict just was not a good replacement. I will not go back for brunch unless I check the menu first.

Those that ordered salads got their food much faster than anyone else but other than that everything was good.

We had a early reseravation so the restaurant was empty, great. We were able to talk and catch up with an old friend. So what does the host do in 20 minutes? Place a party of 3, including a child adjacent to us in a nearly empty restaurant. Absurd.
Shea was fantastic!
We had a wonderful meal! Shea was our server and she was very good. She did not hover but was there when we needed her. She really made our dining experience a pleasure.
Delicious food, fun for business dinner
The pimento cheese dip starter served with crispy pork rinds is delicious. I tried the Fried Chicken special and it was enough to feed a small family. I normally have the salmon with the Texas Pete sauce which is excellent. Our service was delightful and the atmosphere was pleasant.
That have a great brunch menu. Everything we ordered was delicious. Very fun cocktail menu as well!
Food was not up to par.
My date was from out of town and I was looking for a place that would truly show him what Greensboro had to offer. I overall had a mediocre experience at Lucky 32. The service was fantastic, and the menu items seemed wonderful. I was expecting a 20 dollar meal, that is not what I got. I wished I went to a 1816 Downton or Table 16 instead. My macaroni side was cold and my date ordered a well done burger and it was rare. So I am guessing the chef that day was just terrible, and not the restaurant itself. I am going to go back and give them a second chance on my own time when I am NOT with a date. For the reputation this place has, I expected better. If you are looking for a good restaurant to go to that is a little more upscale, don't waste your time here while there is other restaurants like Marshall Free House , 1618, and Table 16
We always enjoy Lucky 32!
The food is always great. Make sure you check their bar menu which is full of fun, fresh and delicious locally-inspired concoctions.
I love coming to Lucky 32 for date night ...
I love coming to Lucky 32 for date night. Or when I have family members in town. It is quality southern cooking taken up a notch or two. And I love that it is consistent, I have never had a bad meal here and I love their service. Always friendly and alway professional.
