Creative menu, great atmosphere

This is a nice little bistro with good food, service and ambience. Very comfortable noise level - even though the restaurant was full with a good weekend crowd. Easy to find good food at several price points and from comfort to gourmet. Fit for foodies.

There are not a lot of choices in or around Bellaire for good food, but Lulu's is a good choice for decent to excellent food. The service was excellent, even though te first martini was quite weird, Since there are not a lot of choices, this is a very popular restaurant and you should get reservations.

This is an upscale bistro in downtown Bellaire which offers more than just burgers and sandwhiches. It is a bit pricey but well worth it for the quality of food. A must try!

My Wife and I were in Bellaire staying at a B&B and popped into town for dinner. The weather was pretty bad and the roads were terrible so we wanted to stick close to the B&B and I'm SO glad we did. The interior is very inviting and warm, the central bar area is beautiful. I had the Pappardelle pasta... More

My wife and I have been to Lou Lou's too many times to count since it opened. The service and food are very good. It can be loud when busy. Hardwood floors and brick walls. Their menu is not extensive but ranges from a burger to Filet Mignon. Once in 13 years we were overlooked after being seated, no system... More

Went out for date night and had one of the best dinner's we have had in a long time and the best part was it's right in our own town. The atmosphere was great, the service impeccable and the food awesome.

Lulu's is a must stop for diners visiting the Shanty Creek area. Located in Bellaire, it's only a few miles from the Shanty Creek Resort. We have dined there numerous times over the years, and have not been disappointed with either the food or service. During the summer months it is very busy. There is usually a wait for a... More

I had an excellent meal there. I went with one of their specials of the day a Crab Stuffed Whitefish with spinach and jasmine and brown rice (their description was more detailed but I forgot to write down the exact wording). The fish was flaky and tender and the crab filling was very tasty. The rices and spinach were very... More

Decent whitefish dish on a bed of rice for $25 vicinity. Decent dish. OK winelist, several craft beers. Service good at proper speed.
