Why Should I Go? Lucky Bones was opened in 2006 by the Craig family, who run the Washington Inn, a fine dining institution, and Cape May Winery. The Craigs wanted Lucky Bones to be something different — a place where you could eat well, in a casual atmosphere. A place where you could get a slice of pizza and a glass of wine.
Brothers David and Michael spent four months taste-testing pies all over New England (1,000 in total), before purchasing a brick oven. They labored over every decision, from the restaurant’s name (ask your server what it means!) to the type of glassware served at the bar. Most importantly, they wanted the menu to be just right, “bar food but better.” The restaurant is now famous for its ability to serve consistently excellent food — and for its lively bar scene.
From 11am to midnight, customers have the option to graze at the bar, listening to live entertainment while choosing from a wide selection of tapas-style appetizers. Or, in the dining room, they can opt for a more traditional meal of meat, poultry, fish, an imaginative salad or, of course, pizza
Don’t be fooled by the busy parking lot — you will never have to wait long for a table. And if you’re on the go, call 884-TO-GO for curbside pickup.
