Small trendy hipster bar/restaurant. The location and parking are spot on. The wooden floors appear to amplify the noise level. The food was spot on I had the fish and chips. The batter on the fish was perfect just enough so that it didn’t over...More

I was in town for a conference, and most of my group wanted to find a local restaurant with vegan options. This is that place. Each item we ordered was traditional but could be made into a vegan option: nachos, chicken salad, BLT, falafels, etc....More

The beer selection is excellent! I had the Lucky burger and it was oustanding. Sweet potato fries were also great. A bit noisy but fun crowd. The only negative was the service. Once they took our order the server never came back.

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
