i went a few days ago with a couple buddies. They both got eggs benedict and loved them although they both said they could each have eaten another order. I ordered oatmeal and it was good. Tasted like real slow cooked oatmeal and came with a nice apple compote, raisins, and brown sugar. Casual but attentive service. Not cheap, but... More

Fun diner-type setting with good service and great home-style food. We recommend the hangar steak, the fried chicken and the Caribbean Pumpkin soup, which was fantastic!!

Lucky Platter is amazing. Always good variety, and always a good meal. This place is great for the entire family. The only drawback is that others know it too, so you might have to wait for a table.

Past breakfast time, but the server sensed something and asked us that if we wanted anything from the breakfast selections to hurry as they were closing that part of the menu. I took me three days to finish the very... More

I normally like their chicken pot pie so much I can't get anything else. But yesterday I went for a chopped salad with blue cheese. Quite good. Soy dressing is luscious. We added a chicken breast that we split. Delicious and healthy.

My mom's friend had the chicken pot pie and devoured it Lots of chunks of veggies and chicken. So tasty. It's a fun place... More

We moved in the neighborhood four years ago and the Lucky Platter was one of the reasons we chose Evanston. We are never surprised to find our Chicago friends at this restaurant. Everyone knows it's location and reputation. The waitstaff is so attentive and friendly even at its busiet times. They understand what vegan and gluten free really mean! The... More
