I had the shrimp tacos which were very good and flavorful. Just enough spices that tasted fresh. Very nice staff. It was open after our haunted carriage tour which was nice. I would go again.

Great service and they are very accommodating in making changes . My husband just wanted some fried shrimp and french fries and it was awesome. We made reservations and had a great time.

Absolutely loved the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict. Tasty mimosa too. This will become a regular stop on our Sunday mornings.

Had lunch, on recommendation so we could check out dinner menu. The seafood looked wonderful, but unfortunately did not see any vegetarian entrees, for my wife so we couldn't come back for dinner

We have had such wonderful food all week here on Amelia Island. But, the consensus among the five of us is Lu Lu's is the best. The flavors, the originality, and Becky were tremendous. I broke away from seafood and had a porkchop (speciality) on the bone and it was so tender and delicious. Our table had grouper, snapper, shrimp,... More

This is a great little restaurant tucked away on South 7th Street. The English bred chef and his wife, recently moved from Virginia, have opened a delightful restaurant serving some of the best seafood in Fernandina Beach. If you closed your eyes while eating an oyster po'boy you would think that you were in New Orleans. Great food at reasonable... More

We debated on where to eat and finally decided on Lulu's...what a great choice! The best description of the restuarant's appearance would be quirky. Loved the outdoor seating areas, inside is small but offers it's own eccentric charm. The food was outstanding, the grey grouper was uniquely prepared and offered a cayjon flare. The shrimp and grits also offered a... More

What a fantastic dinner we just had at Lulu's: a quirky, unpretentious local gem that serves Low Country regional cuisine with panache and playfulness. The shrimp-and-grits kicked that regional standard up several notches by marrying classical French technique (a gorgeous sauce and a grits souffle) to excellent local ingredients. The grey grouper, bathed in a firecracker of a peppercorn-andouille sauce,... More
