Fried Chicken Lovers BEWARE! This is the BEST place chicken I have ever eaten! Try their honey mustard and be amazed. With a side of fried okra and you are in heaven. The tight quarters makes it feel like a hole in the wall along with the great southern hospitality. You will not be let down in this tiny wonder. One down side is the seating. If its cold outside, you might be cold the entire meal because of the small size. One last thing, dont expect to have room for desert, you'll be full be the end of your meal!

Fried green tomatoes were good. Fries were good. Kids tenders were good. The standard fried chicken was terrible. Service is terrible. Too bad. Gus' is the real deal and in a whole other league. I would come back to try the CFS but fried chicken is not a repeat.

Not the place for a person who has Celiac Disease. I ate here once and was told the boudin was gluten-free, then the next time, I was told that it was not gluten-free. In general, the high fat, heart attack menu has no appeal. However, I noticed they added a Local Farm Vegetables plate that is grilled. Perhaps other people felt the way I did the 2-3 times I tried it and wanted a healthy option.

I have to admit, this place has some good fried chicken, it's crisp, juicy and so full of flavor. But!!! The real winner here is the side menu: THE DEEP FRIED DEVILED EGGS! Yes. All in caps because I want to yell on the top of my lungs about how its sooo good! It's totally worth going here just for the eggs.(Not really- try the chicken bucket you will not regret!) Although the service was kinda slow and was just okay I would say. But the food is definitely worth it!

Their breading is pretty great, a good amount of extra spice and flavor. I did try the chicken tenders rather than the fried chicken, and was impressed. What I REALLY loved were the raw oysters! They are huge and in-season right now, and definitely delicious. Plus, the $13-16/dozen price is pretty hard to beat in the area, without "shelling" out a lot more money somewhere like Perla's or Clark's. The vibe is relaxed, take your time and enjoy the drinks and food!

Nothing we had was out of this world, but everything was pretty good. My husband had the oysters and loved them - also they were only $14 for a dozen! The key lime pie was a nice light finish. Happy hour had good prices. The burn-it bowl was good but not great. The corn bread muffins had zero flavor. I would try a few other things but definitely going back.

The chicken is mediocre at best and so are the mashed potatoes. For the price I would expect better.

7/20/15 This is the 3 rd time to eat at Lucy's and it was the worst. The basket came out just warm and greasy, drove a long way for the chicken and was not happy. The other times I have eaten there the chicken was great but not this time. I choose not to say anything because I was with company and did not want to make a scene. Don't think I will be back anytime soon.
