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

Friendly service, great food, great value. The mac and cheese is to die for, get with the pork belly and broccolini. Best french Onion soup I have ever had. Hot, thick, robust and a mound of melted cheese.

Luckily our party of 13 was able to get a last minute reservation at Lulu's. Little did we know how fortunate we were! The service was attentive, prompt and friendly too! The menu offered many great dishes, from burgers to Hangar Steak. That night Skate Wing with a roasted tomato butter sauce adorned the menu, this dish would make Julia... More

Dinner last night at Lulus was a disappointment to say the least. We had reservations and were very excited to enjoy an evening of awesome food as we have many times. Upon entering (8 pm reservations) we noticed that a window table was open and we asked if we might be seated there, unfortunately we were not allowed to sit... More
