We were visiting the Montecito area to visit friends. Arrived at Luckys late the evening of our arrival in town. We weren't looking for a large meal just something to cap off the day. Cocktails and a small dinner for the two of us. Shared...More

Friendly, attentive service, beautifully prepared and presented dishes and excellent steaks marked our dinner of 6 people. Everyone was sated and satisfied. Cocktails were generous as were all the portions. Everything...More

This was a quaint little restaurant in Montecito. It appeared that a lot of locals ate there. Very pricey but the service was good. Avoid ordering the $30 crab appetizer because you hardly get anything. Pretty much of a rip off. Otherwise, a nice place...More

It is Montecito and all, but how do you justify a $20 hamburger? Lucky's did by making a perfect burger. Everything about it was done to perfection, from the meat to the bun to the cheese and the relishes. Our lunch here was excellent and...More

We went here for brunch. What a great experience. Down the street people were crowded into some place while Luckys was relaxed with great staff. The California Benedict was super, albeit not too healthy but fresh and flavorful. Don't overlook the place.

Lucky's is so great that we may make it a monthly visit from Los Angeles. The restaurant is very handsome. Fireplaces, white tablecloths, wonderful photos on the walls; Football, baseball, movie stars, and directors are all featured in a beautiful display. The cocktails were glamorous...More

Sure. Lucky's is very accommodating, but the question is why would you want to call it in? Half the fun of eating at Lucky's is... eating at Lucky's!
