I have been coming to HHI for almost 30 years after my parents retired to the Island. I have tried most places and have a few favorites. We were in town for spring break with friends and decided on an adults night out for dinner and reviews led us to Lucky Rooster. What an amazing evening we had!
Started with SPECTACULAR service by Chris. The guy knows his job and performs it exceptionally. We enjoyed a few of the house cocktails which only got us more excited for the food. We ordered a bottle of wine and they happened to be out of it. The chef personally selected two alternates we may like - despite them being a little more expensive than what we picked. They were explained and offered at the same price as our original bottle. Needless to say - we were not disappointed.
Onto the food! Again, an interesting story. One friend ordered the Bacon Wrapped Trout. A little while after our order, Chris came back and advised that the owner and chef had decided that the trout was not up to par and they did not want to serve it - it was being removed from the menu for the evening. He profusely apologized and asked if another selection could be made and her meal was on the house?!? Handled so well and they did not need to buy her meal but it was a classy gesture. Our table enjoyed two NY strips, a whole marinated fish and shrimp and grits. the sides were asparagus, broccoli, the grits and they brought a bonus of the mac and cheese. While all outstanding, the mac and cheese was beyond reproach.
Our friends were beyond impressed and we thoroughly enjoyed the service, atmosphere and dining experience at Lucky Rooster..Can't wait to come back this summer to enjoy it again.
