This is one of those "where the hip elite meet" places that are so popular in Rochester. The hamburgers are good and big. I would not bring kids. It is loud and expensive and pretty crowded. Not kid friendly. The drinks seem to be a huge draw.

Rochester certainly has a night scene but late dining is not part of it. Yes, there is food around after 10:00 PM if you fancy burgers, fries and the ever pleasing “garbage plate”. On the other hand, if you want a cocktail, a real meal and wine with dinner your choices are limited. After a show downtown on a Thursday... More

We've been going to Good Luck for quite some time, especially when our grown adult children return home or when going out with out-of-town guests, and is probably our favorite restaurant in Rochester. Food is always very tasty, service is excellent. We very much enjoy the family style of sharing meals A bit pricy, but generally we are very satisfied... More

We love Good Luck! We went once as a couple in 2015, and split the 1 lb burger. I maintain this is the best cheeseburger I have ever had. The atmosphere is fun with industrial decor, and always crowded! We have since been back twice with visiting family, and all visits have delivered on the most amazing burgers and good... More

The food is well thought out and prepared. The servers are educated on any possible allergy or sensitivity and will help you navigate the menu. The cocktails are... More

I would describe Good Luck as an American style Tapas restaurant since you share dishes that you order. They also had several specials tonight in addition to the menu that is on line. They chef has a real good talent on combing different flavor and textures of food that are different. The only downside is this place can be noisy... More

Gotta get the goodluck burger and fries! The burger is grilled to perfection and worth the $20. I also had the chicken, lentils, pizza and smokehouse platter. All were delicious!
