My wife and I recently had dinner. She had the ribeye and I had the trout. We shared 3 vegetables — the small is plenty for 2. Bread pudding was exceptional. Both the service and food were excellent. The host and wait staff were attentive...More

The food was okay but given the prices the experience was at best just average. The best part was the cocktails.

We've never been to Lucky Rooster, although we pass it regularly on the main road. We arrived around 7:00 pm on Thursday, and were immediately seated even though reservations are recommended. The food and service were very good.

We started off listening to an over zealous waiter rant on forever about the virtues of local sourcing. The guy simply would not shut up, very much like someone on crystal meth. I finally could take no more and told him to stop talking and...More

Lucky Rooster Kitchen + Bar is an American Bistro with a southern soul. We strive to serve the freshest ingredients sourced form local, and regional farms and purveyors. The menu changes throughout the seasons based on ingredients, and the inspiration of the staff and Chef/Owner Clayton Rollison. The menu is small and focused but offers a large variety of refined comfort foods and adventurist dishes. Our menu includes offerings like "Pork Pot Roast," Steak Frites and can be as adventurist as Foie Gras Pate and Octopus A La Palncha.
