Excellent menu!

This place is fabulous. Great menu selection. Excellent beer list. Not only did the food taste great, but it was very unique. I have never seen creative food combinations like they have, and I eat out a lot. Highly recommend!

This is not your typical Dubuque restaurant. There are only a few places for higher end dining in Dubuque, and this is a very popular one. Very friendly staff and interesting food combinations. It was crowded every time we went by and we found out why. Yum.

Make no mistake, the reviews of this restaurant are very good. That is why we went. The decor is nice, the service is excellent. But the food is not good. If you are used to great good in places like Chicago, Paris, New York, or Nice you will be sorely disappointed - if you have believed the reviews. The wine... More

This was our first visit to Dubuque, and we were delighted to find that it was such a lovely old Midwestern town. We tried L. May on a Monday night; thankfully, we had made reservations because it was packed. No wonder! A surprisingly innovative menu. I loved the quinoa/freekeh/salmon salad, and my husband very much enjoyed the chicken lasagna special.... More

Had fabulous food at LMays. I had scallops with goat cheese sauce that were one of the best things I have ever eaten! Other people in our group had veal and shrimp that also received great reviews.

Casual dining with upscale food. We were seated immediately at 7:00 pm on a Saturday night. My husband had the lamb chop and raved about it. I had the pork tenderloin. It was served with a pineapple salsa and was just delicious. Definitely recommended.

Food was spectacular. Service was very good. Located downtown so parking not the most convenient but adequate. Atmosphere and character of the building add to the experience. Will visit again when in the area.

Very nice menu with a wide variety of specialty dishes, many of which were unique to the restaurant. Service was good. There were four of us. We all ordered something different and each meal was delicious.
