Lucky’s a a favorite go to. Not just your average bar food-elevated but still comfort food. Something for everyone-even vegetarians. They place high importance on quality of food that leaves the kitchen. Hint- Sweet Potato Fries with the Southwest dipping sauce or any of the...More

Been here a few times when visiting in Dayton. Nice pubby atmosphere, good bar food as well as dinners. Located in the trendy Oregon District of Dayton it is a fun place at reasonable prices. They will also prepare take-out if you call ahead.
