Lucas Local Oyster Bar Woodfire Cookery
Lucas Restaurant Group
I have came to Lucas Local four times and each visit is absolutely incredible. You can tell with the seasonal menus, clean and chic atmosphere, and precise attention to detail that the staff and Lucas Local really value high quality. My meal was so amazing, it was worth every cent and then some! Lucas Local will always be a favorite restaurant of mine.
We had a light dinner there last night and we will definitely be back once our move to Newtown in finalized! We arrived on the earlier side but lucky us, it was Happy Hour. The oysters were amazing! For dinner my husband and I shared the clam pizza which was also delicious. The ambience is wonderful but the true highlight of our dinner was our waiter, David. Excellent service and so hospitable. Can't wait to go back!
Christina was great. Really helped with the wine selection! Octopus was fantastic.
Great service! Nice menu. My only complaint are the desserts. Very high priced for the quality of the dessert.
Awesome food and great service. Felt really safe and clean as well. Best oysters I've had in ages, and all portion sizes are perfect.
Dining at Lucas Local Oyster Woodfire Cookery last Saturday evening was a delicious experience! The menu choices included unusual entrees, a great variety of appetizers and salads and a wine list that complimented our meal choices. We'll be back soon!
Everything was incredible! The staff was attentive and courteous. The food was outstanding! Highly recommend the ostrich. We will most definitely be back!!
Incredible experience. Felt distanced from other customers and safe. Food was incredible!
Every season is a different and exciting menu. They go above and beyond to make sure that even the smallest of celebrations feel special. Our server David was fun, knowledgeable and amazing!! Cant wait to visit again!
We loved it! We had oysters, fresh, and so flavorful. Linguine with perfectly cooked little necks, Rhode Island chowder. Everyone commented how good their entree was. Many inventive drinks, wine selection and local brews. Topped off with vanilla ice cream with bourbon sauce. Service was excellent, kudos to David. Social distancing was observed and we felt very safe and taken care of.
We really enjoyed our Halloween dinner!
Beside the outstanding food and service (kudos to David!), the staff were in costume, and we had the opportunity to vote for the best pumpkin.
Cannot wait to return!
Drinks and seafood and service always superb. The special was disappointing and they need more heat lamps outside but all in all they are doing the best they can in a bad situation
Simply a perfect dining experience. I would highly recommend.
Probably our third or fourth time here, and I can't recommend this place enough. We came here for our anniversary. Cute atmosphere as always, pitch-perfect service along with a fantastic menu. We tried to exercise good prudence and judgment and stick to a dozen oysters, but we just had to get another half dozen. For the missus, the seasonal variant on fish and chips was one of the most brilliant and creative flips on a classic I've ever seen. For me, the kabocha squash and scallop risotto was phenomenal. Octopus just perfect. Apple toddy that was pitch-perfect for the evening. Everything is so well thought through, even down to the bread and butter pickles, sourdough, and herbed butter at the outset of the meal. We will be back again...and again...and again!
Oysters are a must have. Fresh and delicious. Had a a swordfish burger. Excellent. Cocktail menu is great. One of my favorites
We had a very nice dinner with great service. Our table is as a quiet little table in the corner. We had mentioned earlier that we just got engaged and they brought us over champagne at the end of the night. Thank you!
Perfect, as always! Great food, ambiance, all while being Covid compliant
Best part was David our server. He was responsive, courteous, knowledgeable - and seemed from the start to want to make our dining experience more than satisfactory. He did and it was
This was a last minute booking (about 3 hours prior to our reservation time) on a Saturday night. We sat outdoors under a heater with a retaining wall decorated with lights and pumpkins. We ordered a dozen oysters and they were all delicious comprising of three of four different kinds. Our entrees did not disappoint - the three of us shared all three entrees and would go back to get any one of them again. Highly recommend their chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream for dessert. And it’s big enough to split.
Can’t wait to go back!!
Very friendly and enjoyable experience, will definitely come back
Great food, great service. Highly recommend the octopus, fall risotto, and chocolate cake. Delicious cocktails as well. Try the one with the maple candy.
Great spot and delicious food. Good outdoor setup and friendly staff! Delicious oysters and the fish and chips are a must!!
The biggest take away is the seating, The chairs are so uncomfortable as well as the benches.
They are hard unforgiving wood and the thin cushion doesn’t alleviate the pain
We had a clam pizza which smelled delish, unfortunately the clams were so tough they were inedible.
The oysters were amazing and shocked to perfection and our server was delightful
Everything was amazing, the service was great. Always consistent. One of my favorite places!
LUCAS LOCAL IS ALWAYS OUTSTANDING; NEVER DISAPPOINTS !
I’ve been wanting to try Lucas Local since it opened, and regret not having done so sooner!
I made online reservations & requested outdoor seating for an hour that didn’t have it available. I was impressed that I got a phone call to explain outdoors wasn’t available at that time, but they could offer it at a later hour, which I accepted.
The outdoor space is very pretty, with market lights, barn board accents & metal tables.
The food was outstanding! It’s hard to get fresh, snappy shrimp, and char is not a common fish option. Lucas had both, and they were perfect!
Service was excellent too!
Cannot wait to return!
We’ve been in town for many, many years and always heard good things about Lucas Local but never tried it. Our anniversary tradition is to try something new and we chose Lucas Local and had a fantastic experience. The Poke, risotto and steak was absolutely amazing. This is now one of our “go to’s”
Clever menu and drinks - felt like I was in NYC!
We had a really good dinner, no stress, very comfortable.
Had the oysters as an app - all very fresh and delicious!
I had the baked squid as a main (its on the first course menu) and it was very good. The portion was pretty large for an app as well, so it could be to share. There was a little heat to the dish, but it was so good!
We also had the ostrich steak which was cooked perfectly. It was also really good. The couscous and yogurt were very good, not a huge fan of the smoked granola but may just be me.
Chocolate mouse for dessert - perfect.
Server was excellent & attentive. Oysters were ok but would've liked bigger selection. Overall would recommend & will be back again in future
Amazing food !!!! It was my Bday last Friday and I was more then Happy About that place choice for
The first time ❤️
Really great food. Chef is clearly a perfectionist and understands flavor.
Shame about some street noise when out door dining. We love this place and its sister restaurant, Centrico.
Both of us got NY strips (replacement for a dish that was sold out) which came with potatoes and asparagus ni and they were very good. Also shared oysters which were delicious. My boyfriend got the Mermaid's Garden and I got the Rita's a Little Spicy marg, both great (I was going to get a glass of wine but saw the price of one glass vs a cocktail was also the same) I've dined outside the two times I've been to Lucas Local. The outdoor seating is close to the road and by a traffic light with an intersection so you will hear some cars but otherwise pretty peaceful outside. Will definitely be back.
Outstanding as usual. This is my favorite restaurant. The oysters are fresh and amazing. Had the yellowfin tuna. Excellent dish. Great cocktails
Great place with great food!
One of our favorite places. Can't wait to go back.
Lucas Local is a great place to dine. The menu has a nice variety of dishes and the wait staff is great.
The food and the service is always top notch. What we really like about Lucas Local is how the menu is constantly updated with very good choices.
