Great Place to Celebrate

This restaurant is our family favorite and the place we go for celebrations. The food is outstanding and the service is very friendly. Chef Brian is one of the best on the island so always be sure to check out his specials.

Sorry, we did not eat here but tried. We walked in at 6PM rainy cold night (Sat. 2/28) and were told no tables until 830 PM w/0 reservations. That's OK as we just dropped in, but when we checked their web site it did not advise "reservations only" as it should as there are only six tables for 12 -... More

Based on Trip Advisor reviews we decided to try Lulu's. We were thrilled with the experience. Service was perfect - thanks Courtney! Chatted with the Brazilian sous chef for a bit. All the staff were great. And the food..... eggplant appetizer was nearly large enough to be a meal by itself. Great combination of flavors, just the right amount of... More

If you are in Fernandina Beach, you really need to put LuLu's on your list. This quaint little place, behind an historic home, has only 7 tables. My first visit (from OKC) with my son, was in December 2014. I brought my husband here and told him we HAD to have lunch here (they also serve dinner). For an appetizer,... More

Stopped in for lunch. My wife had the grouper sandwich and I had the shrimp po'boy. My sandwich was OK at best, but my wife's was better. In addition to our sandwiches we each got a cup of fish chowder, which was delicious but a little skimpy on fish. In my opinion the food was bit pricey for what we... More

My wife and I came here with our 3 year old the other evening and had a great dinner. Our waitress, Courtney, was incredibly attentive and made sure everything we needed came quickly. Fried oyster appetizer with horseradish cream sauce was excellent and the main course of Gulf Shrimp Mac and Cheese was a cool, creole inspired hit. The two... More

Lulus had the best fish basket we have ever had! I lived in the UK for a while and this still beat their fish and chips... So good. I had a Cuban sandwich and it was also delicious but the fish was just beyond. Hushpuppies had a little too much onion for our taste, but nonetheless, good. They had a... More

I ate here during a short visit with friends last November and was happy to be able to return in February 2015. I brought my husband and 6 friends with me and every one of us was delighted with our meal. My husband had what he said were the best friend oysters of his life. A few people got the... More

Fantastic fish sandwich. We don't like clams or crab, but we heard other people saying that those were great too. Yummy yummy, interesting building with a lot of history, too. It would be a nice place to hold a party. I think there is a party facility upstairs. Great service, not too pricey.
