Warm, friendly and excellent food. Everything was fresh. I am a grouper groupie and the blackened grouper was excellent. Crabcake appetizer was bursting with crab an accompanied by an excellent remoulade sauce. Reservations should be considered as there are only a few tables inside.

The calamari was very different and delicious. Unusual flavor and not tough just a bit spicy. Crab cake with remulode was a taste sensation. My salmon was grilled to perfection. Beet salad fantastic. Unfortunately the place needs a cleaning. Tablecloths stained and place is a bit run down. Still worth a trip. Folks couldn't have been nicer

Wife was out of town for a few days. Chef Brian said you need to have the pork chops again. Best decision I made all weekend. Brian is the best chef on Amelia Island. He can prepare anything. I know you should not have french fries with the pork chops, when you go solo, you can order what ever you... More

If you want a special treat, go to LuLu's. There are 7 tables inside and several outside on the patio, that also has space heaters. The chefs/owners live in the big historic house. LuLu's sits behind the house. The food & service is outstanding. We went for lunch on a cold, drizzling day and weren't disappointed. We split a crab... More

The food and service was very good with reasonable prices. I have been there a few times. It is busy at lunch. There is outside seating in shaded areas.

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
