Vibe: This craft beer and wine shop is located on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They have stools at the bar, seats inside, and a few tables in the front. The place was deserted when I got there in the afternoon but they were holding tables for a huge group of costumed people that came in for a Halloween party.
Quality: Beers were served in pint glasses at the proper temperature.
Service: I sat at the bar so service was pretty quick. The bartender seemed knowledgeable about the beers when I asked her a question.
Selection: They had four beers on-tap from the featured brewery of the month, which was Wolf Creek at the time when I went. Local breweries on-tap also included Angel City, Craftsman and Figueroa Mountain. Pliny the Elder was in bottles. Flights of four were available.
Food: I didn't try any food, but saw that they had appetizers, burgers, flat bread pizzas and salads.
Note: The sign and menu refer to this place as "Lucky's Tavern" while it was called "Lucky Devils" on my receipt.

Atmosphere - A nicely decorated eatery with transitional decor. The first thing you see walking in is a glass case filled with bottles of good beer (Pliny, St Bernardus, Duchesses,Weihenstephaner, etc) and then you see a range of draughts. The place was a little quiet at 1:00 on a Saturday afternoon... I wonder how busy it gets at night?
Quality - Everything is clean, and their beer selection is quite good (very high quality) despite the fact that their beer list is limited in terms of quantity.
Service - Service was fantastic, although it was very slow while I was here; so take that as you will.
Selection- 14 draughts are available, and 30 bottles are available, none of which are macrobrews. This makes it very tempting to give a 4.5 on selection, but the small number of choices forces me to give a 4 here.
Food- I had the margherita pizza, which was very good-natured not the best I've had, but substantially above average. Definitely hand tossed with some mildly burnt edges. For dessert I had a leige waffle, which was soggier than it should be and lacked the rich chewy, sugary crust that it should have. I recommended the pizza but not the leige waffle.
Overall, I would definitely recommended this place to other BAs.

Today was my 6th anniversary and decided to take my wife to Hollywood while the little one is with grandma for the night. I picked Lucky Devils for the food and the beer I found online. I know my wife would like the ribs and the other pork odds and ends and I would like the Belgian selection and the old engine oil for dessert.
Atm- It's a big wide open space with a few cushion bench seats and a bar in the back with about 10 taps and fairly decent bottle selection. Has a huge window that over looks the shadier part of Hollywood Blvd though. My wife did notice an odd hole in the ceiling and next to our table a waiter came twice with keys and unlocked a small cubby hole to get some papers.
Qual- The food was outstanding. I indulged in a Kobe burger with sweet potato fries with a Tripel Karmeliet poured into a Duvel tulip. Although the waiter who bottled poured gave me about two fingers too much head on it. Dessert was an Old Engine Oil which was a nice way to end dinner.
Serv- Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. No complaints other than he didnt hear me correctly and brought the wrong beer to the table. I think I stopped him from opening it but not sure.
Selection- The bottle selection was nice and had a range of brews to try from Belgium to even a couple limited items from DFH and Ommegang.
Food- As I said above, The food was outstanding. I indulged in a Kobe burger with sweet potato fries. The liege waffles were a bit crispy but really were a nice way to end a meal.
Value- It was in between a $$ and $$$ so a $$/2 for me. I knew what to expect going so it wasn't too much of a shocker. Slightly more expensive than say a Cheesecake Fac. but we were in Hollywood too.

A great little gem off the beaten path (sorta). Food is amazing whether it be a Burger or rustica Pizza (which I would strongly reccommend). They have a modest bottled beer list and approx 20 beers on tap. Prices aren't too bad - but this place is definitely a place I'd bring friends to give a crash course on True Beer culture. Beats any place in downtown Hollyweird where you need a reservation or gotta know someone to get in.
With a rustic atomsphere - wood walls - and great music again i'd reccommend any beer advocate in Hollywood to check this place out.

The interior of Lucky Devils is wide open, a large window looking at the street, tables scattered about, and a bar that doesn't sit anywhere near the tap handles. At least there's a small outdoor patio where one can take on the sights of Hollywood Blvd (if you wanted to). Maybe I sould talk about the beer...
Abiut a dozen taps are perched where you take your food order, and a refrigerated counter holds about 15 different bottled beers and some dessert goodies. Overall beer selection is pretty good, and surprisngly it's reasonably priced. Most drafts are $4-6 for pints, I saw a thinner glass being used for a couple of the beers. On the taps handles were Black Orchard, Double Dog, Racer 5, Houblon Chouffe, three Craftsman offerings (1903 lager, Heavenly Hefe, Poppyfields Ale). In the bottle were St. Peter's, Moinette, Duchesse de Bourgogne, Avery, Weihenstephaner, and more. Come in for the happy hpour like I did, and get any draft for $4. A pretty good place for beer in Hollywood.

Visited on Sunday, 1/13/08 at 1:30pm.
Seating was not a problem in this modestly sized restaurant. Modern wood paneling lends a classy air, as do the flatscreen TVs that show random images of surfing, cave diving, desert dunes and "Planet Earth" style nature footage with no sound. No sports networks on the TVs!
The wait staff were very friendly and attentive.
The food was great: I had the Diablo burger and my friend has the Bleu Cheese burger, both made with Kobe beef. Sublime, as were the fries (served with catsup, as it should be).
As for beer, my friend had an Old Rasputin on nitro. I tried to order off their beer menu (all on draft) an Oaked Arrogant Bastard, a Double Bastard, an Avery White Rascal, and a Stone XI. None were available. The problem was an out of date beer menu. These had all been replaced with other brews. I wound up with a Telegraph Porter.
Some people near me were enjoying a bottle of Brother Thelonious. Truly, a great beer selection. Take my word for it; save yourself the trouble of looking at the beer menu and just get up and walk over to the draft handles to see what they have.
Overall, a great place, if a little pricey. With tip, our two burgers and two beers came out to $54.00!!! Ouch!
Everything but the food prices makes me want to come back again.

A buddy of mine flew in on business from Tulsa last weekend and asked me to show him around. We just happened to spot Lucky Devils while walking down Hollywood Blvd and decided to give it a try.
Inside has a dark bistro type feel that is pretty typical for small restaurants in the LA area. Towards the back is a counter with beer taps and a pastry window full of yummy looking treats. They have a decent selection of tapped and bottled beers for the size of the place. The two that stuck out to me were Stone 12th Anniversary and Double Dog Pale Ale which were on tap. I'm still kicking myself for not sampling at least one of the beers.
Menu had overpriced burgers and BBQ. The waitress seemed friendly enough. I ordered the Diablo Kobe Burger, medium. After what seemed a bit longer than necessary, we were served. The burger was decent but overcooked; the fries were nice and crispy...very good.
This is a neat place with a good atmosphere. I would stop in again to see what was on tap if I was in the area. The food however was average and overpriced.

Always on the lookout for a good beer hang in LA we tried Lucky Devils last night. I must first say our waitress was very nice - our disappointment was not with her. Located in a very lo-rent touristy area of Hollywood Blvd.
I'm immediately turned off by a bar if you have to spend the 1st 15-20 minutes doing the "what beer AREN'T you out of" dance. Our poor waitress had to go back and forth multiple times to inform us they were out of just about everything on tap. They did have 1 Craftsman left on tap and a few beers you can get at any good beer store in bottles.
Our dinner order got lost in the ether and took a bit longer than most would tolerate. We all had the Kobe Blue Cheese burger. Not bad but not great. Certainly wouldn't go just for that.
So, I'm sure I won't be going back. A shame really 'cause it is very close to where I live. I just don't understand the logic of printing up a select and medium sized beer list if you're not going to bother to keep it stocked. I realize that some of their customers probably don't care, but some do. If you'll notice the beer list isn't on the website - for a reason I'm sure.
