We loved LuLu's, we were able to sit outside and the atmosphere was great, we had a big group and we were able to talk without a lot of people around. The food was delicious. Everything that was ordered around the table was excellent. You can't go wrong with any of the items on the menu and the portion sizes... More

My husband and I ate here on a Friday night when everywhere was booked as we had no reservation. Quant place with some really awesome gourmet food. The Shrimp and grits were wonderful, done with some spice and cream sauce that was great (different the. Others). Crab cake and salad awesome too. Highly recommend LuLu's. Setting is like a backyard... More

We stopped here for Sunday brunch based on what we had seen on TripAdvisor! It was truly a wonderful meal, We enjoyed the calamari, eggs Benedict 2 ways (crab and oyster), Andouille Pontalba and the banafee (caramel banana cream) pie. We enjoyed this meal so much that we stopped for dinner on a Tuesday evening. We had the crab cakes,... More

We are visitors to amelia Island on a yearly basis and always have multiple lunches and or dinner at Lu Lu's.

I am a shrimp and grits nut. This is the best shrimp and grits dinner I have had. All was to perfection. The shrimp was sweet and the grits were prepared to absolute perfection! I didn't want the dinner to end. The grits were fried in an amazing batter - made it so delightful. The dinner was so outstanding I... More

My husband and I left the kids and had a grown up dinner at Lulu's. All of our food was very good, although the tomatoes in my caprese salad didn't have much flavor. The hit of the night was the housemade key lime pie!

Food was delicious. Split the duck breast entree with a friend and it was more than enough, and the waiter brought out bread for us to soak up the sauce. Wine was great. Tried three desserts and all were amazing. Highly recommend creme brulee and the chocolate tort. The only downfall was that there was someone-guessing the owner? working on... More

After living here for five years, it's always nice to enjoy a five-star meal during Amelia's high season when things are hectic for all of our island restaurants. LuLu's takes it all in stride and delivers the finest cuisine. My wife and I had Portuguese-style snapper on a bed of polenta, while my son enjoyed the Seared Tuna Bowl. An... More

We shared the house salad with the raspberry dressing which was good. The crab cake was one of the best and reminded me of the one I had at the Cloister years ago. Almost all crab! Next was the sea scallops with roasted corn and bacon. Sounded weird but tasted amazing. Food was cooked just right! We sat in the... More
