Lucky's Lounge is a favorite hot spot among Boston locals. Enjoy an excellent upscale pub fare, extensive beer/cocktail list before partying the night away with featured bands performing live. Lucky's has an extensive, lunch, dinner and Sinatra Sunday brunch menu with a pub fare menu item for everyone. Voted best "morning after brunch" by Citysearch in 2008. No matter what time of day it is - lunch, after-work drinks, dinner, or an epic night on the town - Lucky's draws in a crowd that is fun, friendly, laid back, urban & hot! Great venue for private parties/events (large or small). Come see what everyone is talking about at Lucky's located in Boston's Seaport District. NO Cover Charge!
Very Disapointed! – Well Luckys used to be my favorite but its definetely been going down hill.....drinks are still good and strong but everything else isnt so great lately. Out of convenience I still go there pretty often but if you make a reservation don't expect them to remember. My food has been cold the last 2 times I have gone there and the brunch menu is weak its more like an expensive breakfast menu. But the real reason I am writing this review is because I had a very disapointing experience there this weekend that convinced me to never go back...Thank god some other good places have opened in the neighborhood. I sat next to 2 men at Lucky's this weekend. I was not eavesdropping but could overhear alot of what they were saying...the two men were the chef and another man I think was the owner or manager. They were rude to the servers and bartenders never said please or thank you. All they talked about was how great they are and how everyone else is horrible. They talked about woman in a degrading and disrespectful way. I wouldnt be so disgusted except they were so obnoxious it was hard to ignore. Basicly I would never want to give such rude people my business again.Good bye Lucky's!
Over priced and under satisfied... – Friday night some co-workers and I headed around the corner to Lucky's for dinner and a couple drinks. As Lucky's is so close to the office, it is often frequented by our co-workers, and despite the hefty price tags came highly recommended. Three of us arrived first, with two more to follow an hour later. We were quickly seated at a table for 5-6 people by the smiling hostess, the only employee who seemed to value our existance as patrons. 45 minutes later our waitress stopped by the table, and shortly thereafter served us the weakest mixed drinks we have ever had in Boston. The soda was flat, and what little alcohol was in the drinks was heavily watered down. STRIKE ONE. We ordered appetizers and entrees, and waited for our friends. When our friends showed up, they were forced to wait outside, despite the fact that we had a table already and they were expected by the hostess. When we spoke to the manager about our friends standing outside, he was incredibly rude, and forced them to wait in the freezing cold for 20 minutes. STRIKE TWO. Meanwhile, our entrees arived... BEFORE our appetizers. My $14 cheezeburger was an overcooked hockey puck, of the pre-made frozen beef patty variety. I would have had a better burger for $3 or less at any one of a hundred dive-bars in Boston. STRIKE THREE. By this point, we were about ready to leave, and our appetizer finally arrived, along with our check, where we were grossly overcharged. After forcing our friends to wait in the cold for 20 minutes before they gave up and left, Lucky's had the audacity to charge us for two meals we didn't order, claiming it was because of the minmum for the table that we never were allowed to fill! Naturally, we only paid for the one thing that made the dinner worth while... the water that the hostess faithfully filled as we waited for the rest of the staff to notice our very existance. Fortunately, there are several other bars in the area for meeting after work, as we will never return to Lucky's.
Favorite Place in Boston – I love Lucky's! Surprisingly there food is excellent in fact I think it's the best food in Southie. The staff's friendlier than any other place in boston. I can't wait to watch the Pat's game there on Sunday and then stay for Sinatra night. Holiday Weekends are alway's fun there. Last week I went Saturday night for drinks with my girlfriends and then went back for brunch the next day.
A good place to check out – Went to lucky's on a Friday night recently and was reminded of why my friends and i use to go on a regular basis. I hadn't been in a while and noticed some good new food and drink items. The fish tacos were great. And the mini burgers are always a good time. I loved the new rasberry mojito. The band was great, i think it was Alex MacDougal. Its a good mixed crowd and usually busy on friday nights. If you haven't checked it out i'd go by, also Sunday Sinatra nights are different and a fun way to spend your Sunday.
Run Down, Dirty, Poor Service & Staff – Was there on a recent Saturday evening with a group of friends. It was our first and last time! The establishment itself was very dirty and dark. Bottles and Cups everywhere. Unfriendly Bartenders that took a long time to acknowledge you even standing there waiting for a drink. Music was mediocre. Overall, not a good time.
Go for Sinatra Sunday nights – Food is straight-up three star diner (nachos, salad, steak are nothing to write home about), but if you're going to Sinatra Sundays, you're not going for the food, anyway. The Al Vega Trio with guest Sinatra singer (I believe it was Adam Herbet recently), is just amazing (though they take breaks very frequently, sometimes Herbert would take breaks mid-song!). The atmosphere is retro, dark, and you should definitely get there early as it gets packed quickly. Drinks are huge and cheap for Boston (under $10). The blond waitress we had recently was an absolute nightmare through- horrible attitude problem and was slow with everything.
great bar, music, drinks, overall atmosphere – I've been going to lucky's for quite a few years and have always enjoyed myself and had a good experience there. my friends love it too. the atmosphere is awesome. the music is great. the food is good. the drinks are great. the staff and management are really nice and helpful. sounds like a recent reviewer had a bad experience there, but that is the first time I have ever heard anything bad about this place. without reservation, i would recommend lucky's any night of the week. Their Sunday brunch is awesome too!
One of our favorite spots! – Strange.....after looking thru all the reviews, the two negative ones are extremely suspicious. How could that be? We've gone to Lucky's numerous times and have always had a great experience. In addition to the great eats, drinks and atmosphere, the biggest reason we keep going back is the awesome staff. The two reviews sting of some kind of personal issue. Get some class and learn how to behave in public. I know we'll be back to Lucky's soon, maybe it's a good idea you stay away.........
Fantastic Post-Work Spot – My co-workers and I absolutely love this place! It is very chill, the music is great, the drinks, food, and staff are even better. In fact, this place is so fantastic, we've become regulars! Try the weekly mini-burgers and the Rhode Island style calamari - very tasty! There is a great mix of people and the atmosphere is really comfortable. The security is not rude or imposing like in many places. I highly reccommend Lucky's to one and all!!
Hmmm.... – Kind of funny how the last couple of comments were left on the same date and referred to the same comment I last made about this place. Fishy!!! Well, you can like this place all you want, but just watch out for your credit card being "accidentally" given to the bartender's roommate, which was a classic excuse by the way!! And you don't have to worry, whomever you may be, my friends and I will never return to this scummy, preschool run place. I have better things to do then get threatened by bartenders and security!!
