We were visiting Field of Dreams and stayed one night in Dubuque. We booked L. May based on Tripadvisor reviews. The restaurant has a great ambiance with wood floors and brick walls. They have patio seating as well as the inside. Nice wine list and friendly staff. We had pizza, salads, and the crab cake apps. The crab cakes were... More

Trendy, didn't have a reservation so had to wait for 30 minutes for a table in the bar (we enjoyed a walk downtown during the wait), the food was delicious.

My husband and I were visiting the Dubuque area so this was our first time eating here but we would recommend this place. We enjoyed our dinner. My husband had the chicken parmesan and I had the pork flank steak with mushrooms and grilled white peaches. Both were delicious. We liked our waitress. She was attentive but not overbearing. She...

Several people in town directed us to L.May, and it was a great choice. Fun wine list, yummy food and terrific service (thanks Mary Kay). We were really pleased with the whole experience and would recommend L.May for anyone who finds him/herself in Dubuque.

We again had a Fantastic Meal as we were passing thru for the second time in a year. I Had the duck which was very moist and delicious. The service, provided by Megan, was excellent and the live background music was just right. I would go there more often if it was not 200 miles away. A great find on... More

My husband read reviews about L. May Eatery on Trip advisor and decided to add it to our itinerary for our trip to Dubuque. We ate here with our 3 teenaged sons and had a great time. It was nice to introduce them to some finer dining. I thoroughly enjoyed my pan fried chicken with sage and lemon mashed potatoes.... More

LMaY is a great place for a celebration meal. It is upscale enough to make your dining experience feel special, yet not so overpriced that you feel like you can only afford to eat there once a year. The food is fresh and tastes great, and the eatery offers one ofthe best examples of exemplary service available in Dubuque. Love... More

This is a great place to go-- very helpful and knowledgeable wait-staff as well as amazing food. I love the decor and how the restaurant is nestled in amongst other local shops. I always recommend it to visiting friends and family for a nice, but comfortable, dinner.

The food here on the night we visited was phenomenal! Innovative dishes, glorious wine and excellent service from Mary Kay. The beef medallions with curry special was exquisite. The steak skewer and popper appetizers were exceptional. The filet was also a highlight. We had two spectacular bottles of red wine. My only criticism is that three of us were squeezed... More
