Friday night some co-workers and I headed around the corner to Lucky's for dinner and a couple drinks. As Lucky's is so close to the office, it is often frequented by our co-workers, and despite the hefty price tags came highly recommended. Three of us arrived first, with two more to follow an hour later. We were quickly seated at a table for 5-6 people by the smiling hostess, the only employee who seemed to value our existance as patrons. 45 minutes later our waitress stopped by the table, and shortly thereafter served us the weakest mixed drinks we have ever had in Boston. The soda was flat, and what little alcohol was in the drinks was heavily watered down. STRIKE ONE. We ordered appetizers and entrees, and waited for our friends. When our friends showed up, they were forced to wait outside, despite the fact that we had a table already and they were expected by the hostess. When we spoke to the manager about our friends standing outside, he was incredibly rude, and forced them to wait in the freezing cold for 20 minutes. STRIKE TWO. Meanwhile, our entrees arived... BEFORE our appetizers. My $14 cheezeburger was an overcooked hockey puck, of the pre-made frozen beef patty variety. I would have had a better burger for $3 or less at any one of a hundred dive-bars in Boston. STRIKE THREE. By this point, we were about ready to leave, and our appetizer finally arrived, along with our check, where we were grossly overcharged. After forcing our friends to wait in the cold for 20 minutes before they gave up and left, Lucky's had the audacity to charge us for two meals we didn't order, claiming it was because of the minmum for the table that we never were allowed to fill! Naturally, we only paid for the one thing that made the dinner worth while... the water that the hostess faithfully filled as we waited for the rest of the staff to notice our very existance. Fortunately, there are several other bars in the area for meeting after work, as we will never return to Lucky's.
Cons: The entire experience.
