good food, good service, lovely ambiance
Lucky Lou's is an upscale bar and grill. Prices weren't cheap but everything was delicious, service was excellent and efficient, and the ambiance charming. My classic cheeseburger was good, but I couldn't get it rare.....they cook all burgers to medium....but it was still juicy and tasty. Other dishes we tried were the gyros, fish an ... read more

Came here for a quick lunch and ended up staying a little longer than expected and getting more than I bargained for. :)I'm in town for work, and stopped by Lucky Lou's based off of the yelp rating alone. I must say this place is as good as the reviews. I tried the crab/lobster bisque to start which was the day's special. It's really ... read more

A few girlfriends and I met for the first time at Lucky Lous at the suggestion of a coworker and I couldn't be more impressed with this place. From the atmosphere that is cozy & inviting to the delicious food, it's so hard to find a place around here with fresh food!! No question we will be back!!!

Lucky Lou's is a very, very popular restaurant located in an old original colonial house in the historic district of Wethersfield, CT(where there are a plethora of old colonial-period homes).

Living in Wethersfield lets us enjoy this place again and again. The steak and mushrooms are out of this world! I take an extra side of mushrooms home to enjoy the next day. In the summer there is a huge patio with live entertainment. It is worth the wait! Enjoy!

Excellent food in charming Old Wethersfield
This was my first visit and certainly will be back when in the area. Loved the octopus appetizer (from Spain). Waiter was young and less than fully informed about the menu and cocktails but he made up for that with his smile.

A great find
We had an opportunity to meet chef-owner Lucas Kyriakos who made us feel very welcomed in his excellent restaurant. The server Lucenia was very efficient in explaining the menu and came back often to make sure we were enjoying our lunch. We had a great time and the food was great.

Unique and Tasty
This was my first experience with piedmontese beef and it was a good one. My huge ribeye was perfectly charred on the outside and medium rare on the inside. For an appetizer, we tried the special which was an innovative dish of filet & risotto stuffed grape leaves. It was bursting with flavor. We will be back.

Awesome place for outdoor summer dining, right on old Main Street so you have a decent view and not much traffic noise to deal with. The lobster mac is awesome comfort food.

Cozy and super friendly place
Surprised to find this bar and grill in an old homestead house. We sat in the back room with a view of their spectacular Christmas tree on the lawn - HUGE! Waitstaff was some of the best I've had. We shared a rib eye - also HUGE. And quite good. Sides were average. Seemed like a local place. Easy to find right off I-91.

Go for the steak - the rest is standard pub fare
The grass fed steaks are pricey, but worth it. Everything else is good too, but nothing super special. The steaks will be one of the best you've had. On one occasion we did have a food issue (these things happen), but it was dealt with appropriately by the wait staff and we have not had a problem since.

The $9 Bloody Mary's are definitely not worth the price. At least the olives are good. Food in general is a few dollars more than it needs to be. Service can be iffy, but at least you can sit outside with your dog and enjoy the atmosphere.
