10/1/2012 This friendly neighborhood bar has got it all. For starters you won't find cheaper, stiffer, tastier drinks in all of Portland, period. The staff is great and quick on the draw even with the heavy pours that Im sure you will come to love. Iv noticed a very big love for the games in this bar. They have pool and pin ball and a bunch of guys and girls always playing on the foosball table.

Looking for good food, look no further. Turns out the owner at this bar is a chef. So whether your looking for bar food or a damn good entre its covered at the lucky inn. If your new to town or have not found your local watering hole, the vibe i got here was very welcoming. 10/1/2012

This place is an absolute drug den. A girlfriend and I came across the street after an early dinner at Pambiche and were astonished at the place. There was a tall guy in a hat who sat at the end of the bar and did business for the whole time we were there. He took his customers to the ladies room, one after the other. Then there is the patio, which would be great if it weren't for the marjuana haze and the hostile druggies. Drinks were strong and service was good...but the bartender (a cutie named Jessica, who flirted with my girlfriend) pooh-poohed my observation that one of her regulars was an obvious dealer. Can't understand why OCCB hasn't shut this dirty dump down!

Glowing example of Portland dive bar: dark as death, filthy, rotten floors. The night we were there the 300-pound owner was proving just how much of an jerk he could be, drunk and turning over chairs and yelling gibberish. We escaped to the patio only to be confronted by the resident stoners who did not appreciate anybody else in their lair. All told, you'll love this place if you are a halitosis-infected overgrown adolescent with BO...and you can join your brothers at the bar, complaining about the fact that there are so few women hereabouts.

I went in here with a girl I had just met. We had never been there so we wanted to check it out. The bartender was rude and I think she called me a faggot. I thought that was funny, but then I paid with a $20 and got $6 change for two PBR's and two single-shot well drinks. I left her a $1 tip (would have been more if the round hadn't been $14) and she snorted at me as she snatched it off the bar. A guy asked me for spare change as we sat at our table and I didn't have it so he hit up my date. She dug in her purse and found a dollar and gave it to him, and then he asked me if I had another 75 cents so he could get a beer. I told him no -again, and he acted offended. My date mentioned at least twice that it smelled like piss in there. We didn't finish our beers.

p.s. -Oh man I just read the other reviews on this place. No doubt! Why don't they shut the place down?

The owner's wife is the bartender. She seems to think she's hot, but you get the impression she dropped out after the fifth grade or so. It was kind of funny how her gut hangs out from her too-small tee-shirt. -Classy. She's got this

I recently caught a band at Lucky's called The ROCKFORDPHILES? for free last Tuesday and they were awesome. When did Lucky's start playing music? I can't wait to go again. My girlfriend and I had a blast and everyone seemed to be having fun. This is not the bar I remember from a few years ago. Keep up the good work and book more cool bands.

Pros: Best Free Show I've ever seen.

I was playing street music,last thursday, and the owner liked what I was doing enough to ask me to come back on Tuesday and he'd amplify me into the sound system., We would rock the place.. I have been a local street musician for many many years, and sometimes will I come indoors, when asked. The dude didn't show up who hired me when it was time to appear. I was told he had other important business to attend to..OK,So,now, I have to wait for permission to go on from his wife,who was The bartender. She double booked Tuesday, and was rather uptight about my set. Everyone else seemed to be enjoying it. Coming around the front table. I was even filmed by a friend who stopped by to watch me work. I am singing my heart out, and this bartender looks real twitchy. I don't feel she got the memo, I was supposed to go on at 8. But, she let the people who had put money in the juke box play out their 5 songs first. I felt it was rude. I waited,however. I could see the trainwreck in slow motion happening. But, like I say, I am a pro, and I honor my committments. I should have walked out but, music is supposed to bring people together. It does. She was on the war path. She didn't pay me anything, it is all about the money and it's all about her. If somebody is listening to music, they aren't at the bar ordering drinks..They aren't paying attention to her. Boo hoo.I played seven songs. when she announces to me, like I was some petulant child, my act was finished. She was dismissive and short with me. No thank you, Like I was an intruder..Look, I was hired to work there,not by her, but by this other guy. She kept telling me it was her husband. She gets to P-whip a man while he isn't around. Fat chance.. Soon, a skinny kid materialized,with a guitar case. He tells me he is here every Tuesday night to perform. My set is now being rationed, so I got a little rude myself. I was hurt. She officially ordered me out of her bar.She didn't have to ask me twice. I went to play off of 12th and Hawthorne to the night crowd at the kioskes. My people anyways,musically,not a bunch of dysfunctional,loud and drunken a-holes... I was also tipped decent at the food fair. I gotta give Lucky's the raspberrry for not standing by artists. We aren't toxic waste receptacles.Sometimes things just are wrong froom the git. I will learn from this experience.

Luckys seemed to have gotten a face lift from what it used to be. Place used to be nicknamed the "icehouse" because so much meth and crack was being sold/consumed by the owners, staff and patrons alike. Although the new owner has pushed the notion that he has cleaned the place up, he hasnt.
The place is rat infested. i personaly saw a rat the size of a small dog run from out of the kitchen down the hall by the bathrooms and dissapear under the ice machine behind the bar.
The owner, Ted Dodd, and his girlfriend, Jamie (who is a convicted hooker with a crack problem so severe it has left her with permenant facial ticks which her addiction to vicodan and continuing crack habit compounds and adds to her overall hedious behavior.) live above the bar and they're domestic drama always finds its way downstairs. i was told this by the disgruntled bar tender after several loud thumps and a scream were heard OVER the jukebox. real classy. No lottery either. i guess the owners felonies and shadey business dealings are frowned upon by Oregon lottery. Drinks are overpriced. and food is way below par for the price. a very dissatisfying experiance considering there are so many great bars in the area.

PROS: Good spot to score crack and food posioning
CONS: Good spot to score crack and food posioning

The lucky inn diner has no napkin on the dining table. what weird is that they have a stack of napkin at the cashier's desk and if you want some napkins for your table you have to come and get it. Same thing with utensils like fork and spoons. I don't understand this kind of service they offer here. It ruin your dinner to come up to the desk and get things for yourself.
