The staff were very accommodating and managed to fit in our large group. Max our server brought us fluffy moist biscuits to start. He recommended his tender juicy tri tip. A great night, thanks Max

I enjoy eating here and I think they offer good variety of menu items. Food tastes good too. And I have never had a ad service here, and I've been here at least 20 times. The only reason why I didn't give them 5 stars...More

Not the best, but well above the norm. We've never been disappointed. They excel in keeping their standards up and serving the full range of meats and related items in a good setting.

Ok, I don’t really recommend Lucille’s. It’s expensive, but the meat is REALLY GOOD, and you get big portions. We took the kids and they just don’t eat much , so keep your kids home. Just expect a big bill and enjoy the food.
