    Hostess was very nice and accommodating. We snagged the small “patio” table in the corner. Camila was great! She was informative about the menu, and gave great recommendations. The guac was amazing, and the chicken dip was good and spicy. Fried chicken was crispy & juicy (hot honey was bomb!). Burnt ends mac 🤤🤤🤤🤤 (could maybe be a little bit more cheesy/saucy is all). The drinks were top notch. Will be back.

    I am usually a big fan of Lucy's but not so much this time. We got there by 2:30 pm within 10 minutes of being seated there was a blackout (not that anyone came to check on us BEFORE the blackout). Obviously, the blackout was no one's fault however no one also bothered to come to say anything...I know you can not take orders with computers down but can I be offered a glass of water in 95 deg weather? We asked another server if they knew who our waitress was and they started with all the excuses about why they hadn't come to our table (when I only wanted to ask for a glass of water) The lights come back on by 2:58 pm and I asked if I could still order brunch since I lost time with the blackout, when my waitress checked she was told no which I thought was unfair since I did not get there too late it was because of the blackout that I couldn't order. My waitress tells us well no one should have seated us during a blackout I was seated well before the blackout she just never bothered to come to take our order. Again I usually have a great time/meal there but this time was not a good experience.

    Lucy’s is a nice fallback….. the food is very good, and the service is always spot on. Rose, our server was very friendly and attentive. The adult beverages are great, with a varied On Tap selection. The parking can be a challenge, as the restaurant is located just outside of Boston proper, and the inside noise level can make cross table conversations difficult when the restaurant is full.

    Biggest gripe, it’s so far…why can’t it be in my neighborhood? Stumbled upon it because we needed something before we drop our son off at college - what a find!!! Food, service, and atmosphere was excellent!! The management even helped with finding the perfect table for my father in law with his wheelchair!! Far, but worth the trip!!

    Terrible treatment, the host was rude and then the manager even more. They didn’t want to seat us in the requested table at first without any valid reason. Then when I insisted, because the restaurant was empty, she said we could seat there but had to leave by 7; it was only 5:15pm (plenty of time in between)Again, no valid reason to not grant the request Just because they didn’t want. very poor service on their part. I can expect that from the host, it looks like it was a teenager who was having a bad day, but the manager was a grown woman. We left before 7 and there were several empty tables in that area, which confirm to us that they were just refusing to seat us just because. Very unfortunate because the server, Sarah, was lovely.

    This was my 2nd visit to Lucy's Enjoyed Eggs Benedict and French Toast sticks. Mimosa's were nice too. I was with my daughter who is over age 22 but under age 25. They took her ID. I watched a manager take a photo of it and then go in the back to verify it. Not sure why this is necessary but it made us uncomfortable in this day of identity theft. I don't think my daughter will come back here again and I don't blame her.

    Coming from Hingham, I was looking for a halfway place to meet a friend from Belmont. I wanted reasonably priced but good quality bar food, a good selection of micro brew beer, and a parking lot, and not too far to drive off the beaten path. Jackpot. The weather was great, so I loved sitting next to the window-open half-wall. The only bad thing was the angry/impatient drivers honking their horns at the Granite Avenue light. But it wasn't constant (thank goodness.) I Wish drivers would be more aware that there are others impacted by their honks besides the car in front of you. However, we had a great time, and an excellent steak salad.

    My moms picky sometimes and the server handled it SO kindly. She had complained about the chipotle aioli on her food and he was so nice and genuine. Also, we went to multiple restaurants this weekend (bday & grad in one weekend) and this was by far the best service we encountered. Shoulda came here for grad dinner I guess! Lol

    We dined for brunch on Mother's Day because my mom really wanted to check this place out. We were a party of 4 seated in a very tight booth. We were able to catch the brunch menu, but quickly regretted it. Our fried egg was cold, our french toast burnt, and the complaints continue. We mentioned to our waitress that our 2 orders of french toast were burnt, she spoke to the manager, and proceeded to tell us that since we started eating them that there was nothing they could do. TOTAL FAIL!
