Lulu's is a small, quaint spot for lunch in downtown Fernandina Beach. I've had several lunches here, and each time the service and food were outstanding. My friend and I had perhaps the best crab cakes we've ever had anywhere. I also recommend the muffaletta sandwich, grouper sandwich, and the salad with mixed greens, candied pecans, fresh bleu cheese and... More

Been to the Amelia Island / Fernandina Beach area 6 times now and always stop here at least once for dinner. The consistently excellent selections are a joy to experience and the people are great

Our lunch lastTuesday was wonderful. From the delicious seafood chowder to crispy grouper sandwiches and a gourmet dessert, we enjoyed every bite. This will be our #1 stop next time we head to Fernandina for a relaxing lunch.

It was cold the night we visited, and we didn't have reservations, so we sat in a cozy enclosed outdoor area with heaters (small restaurant and indoor sitting is limited). We enjoyed the resident cat, who sat under our feet during dinner. Seafood entrees were New Orleans-influenced. The chef came out to speak with us a few times.

Easy to walk by, in a quiet neighborhood. Give it a beach view and you have the perfect lunch spot. But without it it's still worth a visit. The shrimp po boy was perfect and just the right size, the potato side salad unfortunately bland. Wife enjoyed the "love on a plate", arugula salad with roasted pepper. It's quite small,... More

Intimate settings in either the garden or the restaurant - we managed to be seated outside almost far enough away from the table of heavy non-stop smokers (including cigars :-( ) not to be bothered by them - which is obviously not the fault of the restaurant, just bad luck for us that evening. The food was tasty and good,... More

We actually found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and after having a bit of trouble finding it, had a delicious meal. Many creative and unique dishes, including a non traditional shrimp and grits, and excellent desserts made in house. Owner is on site and hands on with service, as well as satisfying our curiosity as to how Lulu's started, etc.... More

Lulu's is a great little cafe for lunch. Eat inside or out (depending on the season and weather) The dining room is small and the lunch crowd can be many so get there early for a table. My personal favorite is the blackened grouper sandwich...superb!

Lulu's is a funky dining spot and is probably best suited for lunches as there are lots of po boys on the menu. It is very casual and has that beachy vacation feel. We had crab bisque and crab cakes.

We had an awesome dinner with wonderful appetizers. The chef came out several times to make sure we were satisfied and to chat. Ready to come back and try their lunch.
