Nice neighborhood place with character

This restaurant is fun (and the food is good too)
We stayed at the Silas W. Robbins House and the innkeeper recommended Luck Lou's for dinner. Great call. It is a short memorable walk. It is in a Revolutionary War era grand home, but since the weather was nice, we ate outside on the large,...More ... read more

It's probably been since my 1980 drivers exam that I've been to Old Wethersfield but I now have a reason to go: Lucky Lou's patio and cozy tavern are a great spot in any season. Great happy hour specials and pricing. Tried the smoked wings, guacamole and flatbread. All tasty and ample for sharing. The place has a Mediterranean influe ... read more

I wanted a steak, and wanted to go to J Gilbert's. My wife wanted to try this place. I gave in. I look at the menu and they have steaks. A type of special Italian cow I've never heard of. The market price of the ribeye was $50. I have no problem paying $50 for a proper steak, but hesitated to pay it at a bar and grill. Especiall ... read more

Great for summer and spring dining. Huge patio and lots of good local cover bands. Tap list has good craft beer choices but not extensive. Friendly staff and dog friendly owners allow dogs on the patio. Vegetarian options if you like salad, but the meat eaters with me said the wings were awesome.
