We had heard that Lulu's was a good place to check out while at Ft. Lauderdale Beach, mainly because of the fishbowl drinks and great view. It's located in a small shopping plaza with a number of other bars and restaurants, and does have great views. We went both during the day and again at night, as after the rest... More

As always, our reviews are solely based on our particular tastes/experiences; never intended to persuade/dissuade anyone from patronizing a business. We were staying in Pompano Beach and decided to visit Ft. Lauderdale for dinner. We didn't have any definite plans to eat at LuLu's, it just happens we found it while walking around the area. One feature they have that... More

My husband and I stopped in from the beach for afternoon libations and some alligator bites. I had a margarita and my husband had a pina colata, both were delicious! Our waitress was really nice and suggested the alligator bites, being my first time trying them I was a little nervous but YOLO! The gator bites were lightly breaded and... More

Needed some food before spending the afternoon on the beach. Beer was cold, frozen drinks were good, food was decent. I had a cajun chicken po-boy which was chicken and andouille sausage, the chicken was a bit over cooked but the sausage and the special sauce added a nice touch. You pay a little more because of location right across... More

Hi gang, We chose Lulu's on a layover day prior to our cruise. It's difficult to find the entrance from the street but welcoming when you make it. The right table will give you a great view of the palms along the shoreline and the water itself. Food was good for a tourist trap. Prompt, friendly service and attention. We... More

Aside from the fun sounding name, Lulu's was a LetDown. The drinks were fine but the food tasted recently-thawed and unsuccessfully masked by the deep fryer. It's a fun atmosphere for drinking and watching sports TV with an ocean view but with so many options nearby I would dine elsewhere.

We stopped in for a drink and appetizers and what a great place! We sat at a table overlooking the beach. We ordered the steamed shrimp and it was so good. They spiced it nice, not the usual bay seasoning. They served it with drawn butter and cocktail sauce and the best part...they de-veined it for us. We went back... More

the location is great because you are on the beach and the views are great. We ordered one of their "famous" fishbowl cocktails or shall I call it a bowl of sugar?! We did not eat there because we turned off by the service and drinks. We moved on and ate at Spazio which was really good.
