The Lucky Hotel, features Newcastle’s first authentic Southern American Barbecue restaurant, where we strive to deliver a unique dining experience by showcasing seasonality, locality and quality.

Our meats are smoked low and slow over hickory wood pellets at 115 degrees for up to 14 hours. Don’t be surprised by the pinkness of our meats as the smoking process brings out the natural flavours of the protein giving it that signature colour! Be sure to try our famous ‘Smoked Brisket Burger’ which won Best Burger at the 2015 AHA NSW Awards for Excellence.
