The concierge at the Hyatt had recommended Lucky's to my husband as THE place to take my friend and her husband and I to celebrate our 60th birthdays. Reservations are required as this is a busy, bustling place. We made the short drive from the...More

It is Montecito and all, but how do you justify a $20 hamburger? Lucky's did by making a perfect burger. Everything about it was done to perfection, from the meat to the bun to the cheese and the relishes. Our lunch here was excellent and...More

We went here for brunch. What a great experience. Down the street people were crowded into some place while Luckys was relaxed with great staff. The California Benedict was super, albeit not too healthy but fresh and flavorful. Don't overlook the place.

Just looking at the menu will make your mouth water. The price will scare you away, but if you have a special occasion or just like to drop cash on a great meal, this is the place and they will not disappoint.

Sure. Lucky's is very accommodating, but the question is why would you want to call it in? Half the fun of eating at Lucky's is... eating at Lucky's!
