Great place

Great chef, he has definitely brought a taste of creole to the island. Fantastic shrimp and grits and other items on the menu. Don't be confused by another restaurant called Lu lu's well off the island.

Wonderful, small, quaint, and really delicious. Read the reviews on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. Indoor or outdoor seating. Nice menu selection to chose from, lunch or dinner. We had the shrimp and grits along with the scallops. Very tasty and beautiful presentation. But the best of the best was the crab cake! Fantastic...will definitely return and... More

Back for a work meeting and had to come back to Lulu's. We splurged with crab cake (which we loved), a half order of the Mac and cheese (which was delicious and plenty for 2 to split as a little side or for 1 persons meal) and we both got the shrimp and grits and both of us didn't love... More

Lulu's is located at the Thompson House. They serve a variety of foods. The prices are reasonable and the food is EXCELLENT! Make sure to make a reservation for indoor seating as indoor space is limited. There is plenty of outdoor seating available.

This is our favorite place on the Island. The calamari appetizer is cooked to perfection with the perfect pairing of sweet and spice sauce. Love on a Plate is also a go to salad. Never let's us down.

Cutest place on the island. Great for brunches, lunch and dinner. We had brunch and my husband said the benedicts were the best he'd ever had. I had a Frittate that was amazing! The chef lives in the historic home next door and so the restaurant is like an extension of his home and garden. Great place, great people!

Lulu's was a great choice for dinner. Thank you to all the TripAdvisor reviewers. We were able to walk from our hotel. Even though we were late for our reservation, they seated us quickly. We shared the calamari and two different iterations of shrimp and grits. All was delicious. Our service was friendly and efficient. I'm excited to return for... More

Came here for dinner on the advice of a local. Had the mac and cheese and it was amazing. The dish of the house is the shrimp and grits. The rest of my group ordered that and gushed about it so much I came back again the next night to try it. Once again....amazing. Each time, the owner and Chef... More

I think Robin B. was referring to Lulu's at Ponte Vedra Beach because this meal was fantastic! The calamari was lightly breaded surrounded by a siracha sauce with a perfect amount of heat. The crab cake had large pieces of crab and was large enough for three of us to share. I had the shrimp and grits and probably had... More
