I came to Cary to “get away”. Just me. This is my first time in Cary , North Carolina so I literally just took a chance and selected this restaurant on a whim. So glad I did. Just getting off the road I was looking...for someplace to eat because I was very tired, cranky, and hungry. I pulled up at 4 PM called the restaurant and was told they did not open until five. So I sat and waited and at about 4:58 I went in and was seated promptly at 5 PM. Joshua greeted me almost immediately and he was absolutely amazing. I was dining by myself and he really made me feel comfortable being there. He was funny & attentive. The food was delicious. I had the pan fried chicken & Mac & cheese (instead of mashed potatoes) and collards. Soooo good. I did try the new spiced apple cake with ice cream on the side because I was under the impression it would be served warm but it wasn’t so Joshua swiftly offered to take it back. The one bit I took was good I just got wanted it warm since it came with ice cream. Every employee I encountered was pleasant and upbeat. I have no doubt that I will be back to eat again before I return back to Virginia in a few days.More

We had a group of 8 so we were able to try several appetizers and meals from the menu. The Green Fried Tomatoes, Voodoo Deviled Eggs and Truffle Fries were a hit. Meal portions were generous, and we were satisfied with the preparation/taste. The reason...for the four vs. five rating is due to the size of the table they put us on and service. The table left little room to eat comfortably while the server had so many tables that we had to wait for requests, including water refills.More

Went there this evening. Service was top notch. Our server, Elizabeth, was very attentive, her coworkers were as well. We were seated promptly, we selected the Herbed Chicken Breast. This was very tasty. The green beans were done perfectly. The brownie with ice cream was...delicious. Prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food and service. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.More

Four of us arrived for dinner. Hayden was our waiter and he was terrific. My significant other and I ordered chicken entrees. I ordered a side of collards as one side and she ordered grits. They messed up and gave her collards instead of grits....All the more of those delicious collards for me. The food was delicious. The service was equally as good. We highly recommend this restaurant.More

Overall the meal was good, but it wasn’t the 5 star meal we’ve grown accustomed to at Lucky 32. The menu has been scaled back significantly and the fish was undercooked. We sent it back and it was corrected, but that’s not an issue we’ve...had before. The chocolate peanut butter pie was tasty!More

Mark, Thank you for your kind words! I love the atmosphere of our bar area- it's nice to offer a more casual option while still having a delicious lunch. I'm glad you experienced us as friendly as well- we look forward to your next visit!...More

Not writing this to complain but to provide information for potential diners. Two steaks were ordered and requested to be cooked, medium. Both steaks were very rare and very fatty. Waitress offered to take steak and cook it some more which I wouldn’t think would...be an option. No thanks. Then offered one new steak to split. No thanks. They brought two free desserts which we weren’t asked if we wanted or not. We were celebrating a birthday after dinner, so we already had plans for dessert. Took $10 off of bill. Hostess and waitstaff were awesome but food was terrible. We won’t be going back.More

We really enjoyed our meal here. Three people got the fried chicken and one got salmon. It was all very tasty. The service was excellent. The did really well with the social distancing. Would definitely return when in town again.

This was our go-to restaurant when we lived in Cary. On my first visit back Lucky 32 was on the top of my list to dine. However, the restaurant is only open for take-out for the time being. I ordered the strip steak cooked medium,...fries and green beans. The meal was delicious - just as I remembered.More

Another disappointing meal! Not sure if it is due to carry out and they don’t check the food properly. Or that the cooks feel the people will be at home by the time you check the food! But really small portions and under cooked black...bean cakes. Side salad with chucks of iceberg, brown celery, white mold on spinach and wilted mix greens. Couldn’t eat it. They did get the bread and butter right. Last time the GM said they were working to make it better but he must have forgotten to let the workers know. Well we will try again as it used to be a favorite but is starting to not be a place to eat a great meal.More

I am not sure, but I do not believe they have a gluten free menu. But, you can also order certain salads, and meats.
