If you have read my other post you know I am a soup freak...I make at least 2 home made stocks a week and even eat soup for breakfast. Their French Onion is exactly what you want. A rich dark savory bone roasted broth filled with soft caramelized onions on a perfect little slab of toast supporting a crust of... More

I've been here with my husband a few times for anniversary dinners and love the food. It was creative and delicious every time. The only problem was being able to talk during dinner. That was impossible. The absolute insanity of noise was so bad that we couldn't speak to each other at the table without shouting to be heard, literally.... More

We enjoyed a nice lunch with family and friends. The luncheon menu was somewhat limited but everyone enjoyed their meal. I had fish and chips and the French fries were outstanding. If you eat there I would highly recommend the French fries. The restaurant was very clean and the restrooms were tops. The wait staff were friendly. It was an... More

Lulu's is a wonderful bistro in Northern Michigan. We really like the atmosphere and layout. We have had mixed experiences with the food. Always great, but not always to our personal taste. If going, just be prepared for a potential wait. There isn't a lot of seating as it isn't a very large bistro. If during a busy time, it... More

This was our first trip to Bellaire and Lulu's is a gem. We had a party of 10 and ordered some appetizers to split, the calamari was very tender. The mains were all good with the shrimp pasta and the short rib dishes really standing out. For the standard of the food the price was fair. The plates went back... More

We recently ate at Lulu's on a Saturday evening while visiting the area. My husband had trout and I had salmon. Both meals were well prepared. The service was excellant and the atmosphere pleasant. We did not have reservations, got there early and did not have a problem being seated. However, it got very busy later.

Lulu's offers a very good, almost gourmet menu and the food is something you rarely find in a small town. Even though my family attempts to eat at Lulu's whenever we are in the area, I have been reluctant to join them because of the acoustics within the restaurant. On my previous visits, I found the noise of fellow diners... More

Two of the four in our party suffer from food allergies and both the waitstaff and the kitchen took very good care of us and did it graciously. We arrived before the doors opened on Father's Day and they even let us in a little early! It wasn't long and the tables began to fill up. Folks in this part... More

We have dined at LuLu's many times, but not for a few years...we decided to go early for my husband's birthday dinner, and arrived at 5:00. The place looked great, as usual, but only one other couple dining when we arrived. Server was very inexperienced, but friendly...we got our drinks promptly, but asked to have at least one drink &...

On a Friday night, with no reservation, we were sat right away. However it was several minutes before we met our waitress to take our drink order. She was very apologetic, and after that we had excellent service. The lump crab appetizer was really good, and so was my lamb, but my husband's steak was nothing to write home about.... More
