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

I love this place. Great food, fresh as can be and reliably good! Their crab cakes are to die for! Their outdoor eating area is great when the weather allows. I've never had a bad meal here!

We walked from the B&B that we were staying at and wanted something good to eat and this place was the right choice! We did not have a reservation but it was still slightly before the crowds and we got a table inside. We started with the mussel appetizer and the tomato and fried mozzarella caprese. B.oth were outstanding. My... More

Had a great dinner. Shrimp and grits and crab cakes to die for. Reservations are a must. They are very busy. We will definitely be back .

Stopped in for lunch. Friendly and helpful staff. We had a fish poboy and a shrimp poboy. The fish and shrimp were good. The shrimp especially had a see through breading on it. The bread wasn't bad but could have been better. The thing that was awesome was the grain mustard potato salad. I'm glad they gave us a small... More

excellent food, great service and a must do place while at Amelia Island. LuLu's has become one of my favorite restaurants on the Island. I make a point to visit for lunch at least once while on the island

It was Pirate Fest in San Fernandino and it gets crowded and loud. Fortunately we had made reservations at LuLu's. It was just a block from our B&B (The Addison) so we got to see some of the parade. I have to admit that LuLu's doesn't look handsome but it has a local charm, and it has outdoor seating, which... More

I hadn't been to Lulu's in two years, and my boyfriend hadn't ever been. We ordered the Charcuterie for one which was amazing. We are both from the NYC Area, and miss being able to get great salami, mortadella, etc. It was delicious! The bread was toasted just enough so as not to be soggy or overly crunchy. Olives were...

My husband and I have been coming to Lulu's for several years now. We use to live in Jacksonville and would drive up to have dinner here, now we are residents. We started our meal with a bowl of steamed mussels in a Thai green curry broth that was really wonderful. I ordered the roasted Red Snapper that was served... More
