Wow. I can’t believe I haven’t written a review for my favorite steakhouse. Lucky’s Steakhouse is a place I have been eating at for years, even before I moved back to MI (in 2007.) When we would come back up here to visit from OK, my family would go there and I would always get the crab legs. Grandmas treat. 😉
My favorite thing there is the Black and Blue burger. They have the best burgers and I feel that they are totally worth the splurge. This is pretty much the only place I eat burger at. I have tried similar styled burgers at other places, but non compare to Lucky’s. Mr. Yum generally gets steak. I can’t remember a time he ordered something else. My mother looooooves their fish sandwiches. I can’t say I blame her, they are pretty darn good. We went the other day for lunch and I got my usual burger, traded the fries for a salad. Mr. Yum opted for the open face steak sandwich (on special), salad and soup.
I believe this was vegetable barley soup. Any type of barley soup and he’s content. It’s his favorite.
Lucky’s has a couple of different salads and they are quite large when you order the meal. However, I swapped my fries for a side salad. My favorite side salad is here at Lucky’s. Even though it is small, you still get a good portion of healthy goodies and they even put a few croutons and cheese on there. 😉
I get my dressing on the side so I can do an old Weight Watchers trick where you dip your fork in the dressing and then your salad. You get the taste of the dressing without all the calories. It works for me because I like the natural taste of vegetables anyway.
The wedge salad, which my husband ordered, is usually 1/4 of a head of a lettuce. For the side wedge, they chop that in half. We always have to ask for a little less dressing because they do like to smother it. Hubs gets his with ranch though instead of the standard blue cheese. They use real bacon. No imitation bits here.
This is the lunch special, an open face steak sandwich. You do get your choice of side if you don’t want fries and he swapped them for their red /new potato garlic mashed potatoes. They are so creamy and good!
And for the holy grail of burgers, may I present to you the black and blue (cajun spices with blue cheese) :
Look at all that warm and bubbly blue cheese….yuuuuummmm
It’s a really good size burger, too!
I only ate half. So I got to have it again the next day for lunch. Bonus.
Whats your favorite burger flavor and place to eat?

That half wedge salad looks interesting and something I would like (minus the blue cheese). And seriously, who doesn’t love some real bacon? Great review!
All that food looks so good! I love a good wedge salad, and my husband loves a good burger.

That salad looks so good! I am so hungry right now and this place looks amazing!
I could go for one of those salads right about now too! I need to go grocery shopping.
Looks like an amazing place to eat! And “hello” from a fellow Michigander 🙂
Marcie W. says
You had me at good burger but that amazing wedge salad just sends things over the top. I can see why they call it Lucky’s!
Bonnie @ wemake7 says
I really wish I could try that burger right now lol. It looks sooo good, the salad does too. =)
Wow. All of that food is killing me. Making me very hungry. Thus looks like an awesome place to eat! Thay burger looks to die for!
I’ve never seen a salad like that before! All of your food is making me drool. Looks like a great place to eat.
That all looks fantastic. We have a burger place in town that makes everything in house. You can really taste the difference in fresh everything. This burger looks just as yummy. Can’t wait to stop by next time I’m in town.
John Lopez says
That’s a great way to bonding with my family, this is the great place to eat those delicious foods. Love all your pictures.

That steak sandwich looks divine. You take the best food pics!
Oh, thank you!
Ron Leyba says
Wow I love them all, most specially that large size burger. Looks like Lucky’s Steakhouse really got a loyal customer in you!
Now this is a place my husband would thoroughly enjoy. Their food looks awesome and that burger looks amazing.
I haven’t been to a nice steakhouse in a long time, the food looks so good!
Fi Ní Neachtáin says
The food here looks absolutely delicious! I’d love to go somewhere like this for a date night meal with my other half 🙂
Rebecca Swenor says
This looks like an amazing place to eat indeed. All the food sounds and looks totally delicious. I would love to try that steak sandwich. Thanks for shairng.
That burger looks absolutely divine! Even the wedge salad looks good, but totally agree on the dressing thing
lisa @bitesforbabies says
I’m not a big meat eater but I have to say that for someone who is, this place looks great!! The food looks really good!
My husband would love this place! I always get my salad dressing on the side and do the fork thing, too. I can’t stand an overdressed salad.
Chubskulit Rose says
The wedge salad and the veggie salad would be my first choices! These all look delicious!
Aisha Kristine Chong says
I would definitely be satisfied and full in those meals, yumyum!
That cheese is bubbly and looks really good. My husband and grown boys LOVE a good burger.
R U S S says
Gooooosh, everything looks sooooo good and I can imagine how yummy the burger must be. The salads looks delicious too.
Every time I think about it I want to run over there and get one! I know they do take out!
Michelle @ Dishes and Dust Bunnies says
OMG I can’t resist a good steakhouse! Everything in this post looks so delicious and amazing!
That salad, that cheese, that burger. Everything looked to delicious! I am so hungry now. I love to find different places like this to eat and enjoy. Discovering is always fun!
I live in Indiana, so I need to map out how far this place is from me. The food looks so good, might be worth a road trip!
Natalie Z says
That looks so good! This sounds great for my family…I like my steak and them burgers!
those salads, esp the half wedge, look amazing! I have to agree i LOVE my burger’s and that one looks so good! Thank goodness i just ate otherwise I would be in the car going down the street to get me a burger! But I am on WW so the tip you gave about dipping you fork into the dressing then salad was great I will be using that from now on. Thanks!!
Oh a steak house sounds so good! I’m longing for some good steak.
Liz Leiro says
This place looks great! I love wedge salads, but I can’t have dairy so I usually get mine without the blue cheese crumbles and dressing and sub in thousand island instead 🙂 If I ever travel to that state I might have to make a pit stop at Lucky’s.
I’m going to need some steak asap. That looks amazing. Love the soup too!
At first I was mad at you for swapping out the fries for a salad, but then I saw all the amazing goodies you ate after that! Yum! Looks like a really nice restaurant.
Donna L. Ward says
Chrystal – this really is ‘yum eating’ I would love each plate you’ve shown – especially the vegie barley soup – oh and the bue cheese hamburger – oh and ..well you get it – thank you for sharing this yummy meal
I haven’t been to a good steakhouse like this in a very long time. The ones around me are so horrible I would never visit again. I wish there was a Luckys near me, but I don’t believe there is in my state.
Marina John says
Mmm, everything looks amazing! I can see why it’s your favorite!
Ann Bacciaglia says
This food looks amazing. I will have to try Lucky’s if i am ever in the area. We have a local place called Golden Valley that has amazing food.
Debi- The Spring Mount 6 Pack says
It looks like a fantastic meal. I love the real bacon on the salad.
I can’t think of a favorite burger place. But I do like a good burger.
I love steak. Luckily, I live in Kansas City with some great steak.
The best steak I ever had was in Austin, TX. But as a former Okie I am not supposed to tell people that. 😉 lol
Holy moly that butter looks delicious!! I’m jealous!!
Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly says
I love trying out new burger places too bad I am no where near you! For a chain restaurant, Applebee’s Quesadilla Burger isn’t too bad! LOL 🙂
We actually have an Applebee’s here in my dinky town. My favorite thing there is their boneless wings. I get them extra spicy!
This meal looks great. I always swap my fries with a salad and this salad looks delicious
I haven’t had breakfast yet and you just made me hungrier. 🙂 I love steak and I can’t wait for us to start grilling again.
I can’t wait for grilling season either!!!!!
Oh wow the burger looks absolutely delicious and I am so hungry right now. These days I really have chips with my burger usually its a salad but occasionally i do.
I have been trying to swap out fries and chips for salads more. I’ve also been cutting out buns. Not every time, but most times. I’d rather have my burger wrapped in lettuce anyway. I feel the bun just gets in my way!
Alyssa C says
Now this sounds like my kind of place! Everything looks delicious! Thank you for sharing.
Cherri Megasko says
I like ordering burgers at steakhouses, too. They are generally so extravagant it makes you feel like you’re really splurging! I lived in Michigan for 12 years. The next time I visit I’ll have to check this place out!
If you do, I’ll meet you there 😉 I’m never one to pass up a reason to go to Lucky’s!
Stefani Tolson says
Sounds like a great place to get a bite to eat. The food looks good!
Jennifer E. says
I’m not a fan of bleu cheese, so your favorite burger would be lost on me. But that open faced steak sandwich and mashed potatoes looks right up my alley!
Candy O. says
Oh this all looks amazing! I would love to try this restaurant.
My favorite burger place is…where ever I am eating a burger at. Greatest thing to ever happen to bread IMHO. You can do so many cool things with a burger. Clio is actually only a couple of hours from here, so I may check your black and blue burger out.
Megan @ C'mon Get Crafty says
Wedge Salad and Bleu cheese burger?? Those are my FAVES!! (And thanks for the fun WW dressing trick, that’s brilliant!)
Jocelyn McGaffic says
Everything looks delicious. I love wedge salads, and its great that they use real bacon. Great review!
Life as a Convert says
Every single thing here looks amazing. That burger is especially calling my name.
