This is my third visit to Lucky Day. I have been there with co-workers and friends, as well as brought clients for dinner. The service has been wonderful at every visit and I have not been disappointed with any of the items on the menu. The atmosphere is great and I love the tables with the curtains for a more private feel. Delicious and delightful! We will be back again.

Best Whiskey/Bourbon selection. Some were priced out of line with what they were but most were good. A bit noisy but it was happy hour on a Friday.

I would absolutely recommend Lucky Day! Food was beyond amazing!! Everyone had something different and each dish was superb!!! Had 3 different appetizers and they each were outstanding! All the food was fresh, served hot and was super tasty! I can’t say enough about the food ! We tried some of the different whiskey special drinks and all were delish! And you can’t beat the atmosphere...it’s cool! Love this place. I only wish you were open for lunch!!!!

It's a great spot. Food was excellent and the drinks were perfect! Service was also very warm

Only drawback was the music being at a volume level where I couldn't hear the person next to me, which under other circumstances might've been a good thing

When they say they are a whiskey bar, they mean it. Every single cocktail was made with whiskey. It would have been nice to have just one other option for the cocktails. That being said, the drinks were good and the food was great, and the place is really cool.

The wait was non existent and the seats were comfortable. The waitress was sweet and delightful, her personality brighter our day. The drinks sent a warm embrace through us,and were perfectly mixed! And the food, oh the food, so good! It was light enough to satisfy, but not stuff. 15 out of 10 would recommend!

My colleagues and I had an excellent experience at Lucky Day. The band Rhubarb sounded amazing and created an upbeat atmosphere for our team dinner. Surprised and delighted that you had sour beer on tap! Food and menu was diverse for everyone. Will be back again soon! Service was top notch!

Great atmosphere but even with our dividing curtains you could still hear your neighbor’s conversation. Food was great! Steak was cooked perfectly and scallops were flavorful.

Malcolm was an amazing server. The food was delicious with a few unique turns. Only wish we were seated so that I couldn't see inside the kitchen. Maybe get curtains wide enough to block the view. We will be coming back!

Love the draped private nooks for dining. Perfect for larger groups of 4 or more. Good food. The bar is gorgeous and its vast selection of whiskeys unrivaled in town.

Went to Lucky Day last minute before a concert. It was one of the few places we could get reservations for six people at short notice and we didn't know if that was a good sign or not, but we had a great experience, good cocktails and decent food (we just ordered burgers). Nice ambience. Would visit agin when in Buffalo.

Ambience was great! We got seated in a little cove area. The drinks were delicious and whiskey menu was extensive. The food menu was decent as well. The service was decent I just wish she had been more knowledgeable about the menu when being asked specific questions. However they were accommodating to my plain-ness when ordering a burger as I did not care for the chefs topping selection that day(peanut butter mayo, jalapeño and bacon jam). My table also had the pickled plate which was pretty tasty! I will definitely be back and will recommend to friends.

Overall this was a nice experience, the food was very good .We felt sometimes the staff was t around when we needed things and after we moved to the bar area after dinner it was very hard to get the bartenders attention and get refills . If they were more attentive and faster we would have spend a lot more . It was moderately crowded so I don’t get why these guys weren’t hustling, their loss .

Love this place! Love the dark wood, the food selections are different and yummy. They have great happy hour specials and I do love my whiskeys! We had a table across from the bar area and they pulled the curtains between the tables for privacy- a very nice touch!

Food was ok, nothing special for price. Wish more explanation, waitress terrible ignore us. I accidentally dropped my fork saw me try to pick it up and step on and kept walking. Without apologies or getting a new one. When ask to explain things on menu and whiskey got yea it’s ok. Very disappointed for such a great looking place and cool vibe.
