Excellent but pricey

Found this place on Trip Advisor and certainly wouldn't have stumbled upon it otherwise because it's tucked away on a side street behind a house. The atmosphere is lovely. You are truly eating in the backyard but rather swanky feeling. You can definitely dress up or down to done here. We had... read more

Had Sunday Brunch on a cool day. Just a bit to windy to sit outside, so we moved inside, where there are only about 6 tables. Most eating is outside on a patio or under umbrellas. The food was great - the Oyster Benedict was brilliant and I can not wait to go back for more!

Outstanding!! The best calamari we've had in years. Portobello mushroom sandwich and blackened grouper were delicious. And the icing on our cake, peach cobbler. Definitely a winner and we will be back!!

About a week before Easter, we almost literally stumbled upon Lulu's, a casual establishment with a lovely area out-of-doors if you are so inclined. My wife and I had Po'boys: oyster and shrimp. They were so good that we decided to return for Easter Brunch. We were not disappointed. We had Eggs Benedict, or did we? poached eggs over a... More

Every time I come to this restaurant I'm NEVER disappointed. The shrimp and grits are divine, the crab cakes are the best on the island, and when they have it I always save room for their blueberry cobbler. Last few times we've had Courtney as our waitress and she always does a great job. The rest of the staff is... More

Chef Brian works magic with gifts from the sea. Our latest was local sheepshead in a shrimp etouffe. Simply fantastic both in preparation (the sauce to the etouffe was to die for, the local sheepshead perfectly sauteed in a Cajun rub) and presentation. Finished with a toffee creme brulé, life was simply wonderful. When you go, and go you must,... More

LuLu's came highly recommeded by some Amelia Island locals. It was chilly that night and we got seated just inside the front door where it was a little cold. The indoor space is small put it has a lot of outside seating during nice evenings. All 5 of us thought the food was very good. They use as much fresh... More
