Staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating. Food is delicious. Crispy chicken livers are a good shareable appetizer. Joshua was a wonderful server.

Nice outdoor patio, and our server was attentive and friendly. We were seated promptly for our reservation for an early dinner before the crowds and a comedy show, so not very busy. Very limited on options for vegan/vegetarian diners. I ordered a few of the...sides. My friend says the stuffed eggs and Pork Porterhouse were delicious. The chef was very kind in helping us celebrate a birthday. Thank you again!More

Very good food and friendly & helpful service. On 3 occasions all of our meals were great. The only downside is it is pretty expensive: Ribeye @$65, lamb shank @ $38. The pork porterhouse is well worth the $26More

We visited with a group of 8 adults and had a great time. The ambience is lovely. Great cocktails. The calamari appetizer was delicious, as well as the wedge salad. Everyone enjoyed their main courses. I had the scallops and they were delicious, perfect portion....Other entrees were the steak frites, steak and wedge salad, and the red snapper special. Everyone had great things to say. Our server was the same woman who also led our dolphin tour earlier that day... she was great (forgetting her name). It was a great way to start and end our day!More

We got the last reservation available - 8:00 PM. We are glad we did. My husband had the Lamb Shank and ate the whole thing. It was so big I still don't know how he managed. He declared it 'excellent'. I wasn't that hungry so...decided to have a small house salad, a chicken liver app and a side of mac n cheese. It was all wonderful, but I simply could not finish it. Each item was a VERY large serving. Our dining experience was enhanced by our charming server - Jaylen B. He took the time to chat with us while delivering excellent service. Put this restaurant on your list.More

We've been going to Lucky Rooster for years and it's always been one of our favorite places on HHI. We were happy to see that it had finally reopened. Last night our group included four adults, a 3 year old and an infant, and we'd...made an early reservation for happy hour. We had a lovely table outside. The patio is great and there was live music. We shared deviled eggs and an order of crab cakes; these were delicious. Two of us had the banh mi, one had scallops, one had tuna. Everything was fresh and tasty. For the most part our service was good, except for the drinks. Through no fault of our waiter, our cocktails took too long to arrive. Also, our banh mi sandwiches were supposed to be on baguettes, but instead they were on hot dog buns. Not a good substitute! And what happened to the best appetizer on HHI--the fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese? Please PUT THEM BACK ON THE MENU. Thanks for a lovely evening, guys!More
