Always a good choice for conversation over cocktails and good food.
I've been to Lucky a few times and I will go again. The food and service are excellent, and I love the downtown vibe.
Went for wife's birthday. Food and service was above and beyond. Will definitely be back.
Service was top notch. Food was very good and a unique drink menu. We will be back.
Love this place. Food was delicious as usual, and the drinks, you guys rock!
Food and service was absolutely fantastic.
The entire experience was fantastic. The service was impeccable. Food was delicious. We all got the special monkfish dish and the sauce was amazing. Will come here more often.
Consistently good. Good list of bourbons. Cheese board needs work but no other complaints.
Our expectations were high based on reviews we had read. Fortunately it easily met our expectations. Food preparation and service were wonderful.
In town for a conference - I always seek out places doing real farm-to-table dining. Great salads to start, and we both enjoyed our entrees. Nice wine list. Professional and knowledgeable service (thank you Whitney).

I found this place very expensive for what one gets. The food was not even mediocre. It was plain boring. I will not go back, except maybe for the handcrafted cocktails, which are impressive for Roanoke.
My brother and his wife recently celebrated their anniversary at Lucky, and they found the same experience. $200 for food for two is ridiculous given the quality and utter lack of flavor. Service is great, but that does not fix the overarching experience. Food is not actively BAD, but I would never send anyone to Lucky to eat. Far too expensive for almost no return.
Lucky never disappoints. I was especially pleased that they were able to accomodate our request for a booth Saturday morning online for that evening.
Enjoyed taking my niece here for her 21st BD!. Great time, wonderful food, superb service. We will be back soon!
I've had a number of hit-or-miss experiences with Lucky... maybe just my bad luck. :) The cocktails are awesome and I love what they are trying to do with the menu, but the food has been inconsistent on a number of occasions. Some dishes have been quite good, but most have been mediocre. On this occasion the mussels were excellent, but other dishes were far too salty. My wife loves salt and even she could not eat her sides. I'm not an expert in running a restaurant, but I suspect the problems are due to poorly trained or uncaring kitchen staff. The recipes and ingredients seem to be there, yet the kitchen execution is lacking.
Fabulous as always! Favorite restaurant for fresh fish. The grouper was amazing-it just glistened!
Great service. Good food. Creative drinks
A perfect night to celebrate or any occasion you want a good locally grown dinner. The wait staff is impeccable. The food, delicious and generous. Drinks are amazing and has a reasonably priced wine list.
Had a great dinner at Lucky's - food was great - roasted oysters appetizer was fabulous! Staff was attentive and very courteous. I ad the grouper entree special and the fish was cooked perfectly. I will certainly go back!
It is SO LOUD in there. Otherwise lovely. Amazing food and service, fantastic drinks. But too loud. Our throats were more from trying to have a conversation.
Best restaurant with amazing service. Best of all are the drinks!
Always in form—expertly executed upscale comfort food, best cocktails anywhere around here, and very cool staff.
Lucky never disappoints! Great food and great service. And even better cocktails.
This place is awesome. If you are in Roanoke, it’s a must for sure. Fantastic cocktails, shishito peppers to die for, crispy fried chicken, sweet and tender scallops, and many other wonderful dishes. Soooo good! I would go out of my way to go back again.
This was a celebration of my daughter’s graduation from Nursing program. We had a party of eight and from the moment we came through the door until the end of our dinner, everything was perfect. Lucky’s food and service made for a wonderful evening. Definitely a night to remember. Thank you!
Try one of their creatively mixed cocktails, and if you like a little show while being made, sit at the bar. Food flavorings equally creative and appealing. The mussel bowl is a must - plump and served in a delicious broth. Dessert offerings limited but perfect to share, along with after-dinner coffee drink. Server was knowledgeable and attentive without hovering.
Fantastic food and the specialty cocktails were amazing. Staff were very helpful in description of the menu. Smiles all around. Great atmosphere!
A great restaurant. The food was some of the best we have had in Roanoke. Because of the design, expect a noisy atmosphere.
I live in Blacksburg and had heard so many my good things about Lucky and decided to get a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday. It was cozy and elegant upon arrival. We had shared a few of the small plates and tried two of the handmade cocktails. Everything was excellent. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable about the menu, including ingredients and locations. I would recommend going here for sure.
Took my significant other out for a birthday dinner. It was the first time either of us had been to Lucky. The drinks, dinner everything was delicious.
Late supper after a concert in Elmwood Park. The pork shoulder was a-maz-ing!!
The food is always amazing! The drinks are even more amazing! Taylor and Kent are world class bartenders. Our server was amazing! If I could give this place 10 stars, I would.
This place is the best! I love taking anyone who visits me in Roanoke. The service is impeccable and the food is some of the best.
Every cocktail they have is impressive and they also can make any drink you request
Very good food, especially the appetizers.
Excellent cocktails, and spot-on service ( not intrusive, but available and prompt and informative/helpful). We enjoyed the entire experience.
I live in Washington, DC and drive 3 hours to eat here. The place is absolutely amazing.
The food was scrumptious, the service was fantastic (we had Jeremiah), and the atmosphere was festive. I thoroughly enjoyed the fried brussel sprouts and my husband enjoyed his oysters and southern fried chicken. Will definitely revisit soon.
My wife and I had dinner and then concert next door
Everything about this experience was fantastic!
Loved trying all the app offerings. Thought the cheese portion on the board was a wee sparce. Cocktails and mussels were fab! Super service.
Pork shoulder plate was very heavy on the portion and protein
