Six of us went for the New Year's Eve special dinner with optional wine pairings. The selections offered were varied and we enjoyed the lamb chops, Crab-crusted Grouper, and filets. All met our expectations and were delicious. Only that they ran out of risotto and gave us quinoa was there any disappointment. Appetizers were huge portions. Creme brulee was excellent.

Hear they have good sush and other fish dishes. Went for friends birthday and I don't like seafood. The pork ossobucco was great. Everyone enjoyed their meals and commented on how fresh everything was.

I was told that the Lure had the best seafood around. Having lived in Florida where the seafood is the freshest around. The Lure has seafood that compares to Florida. I would recommend this establishment to anyone looking for the best around

We tried the crablegs and they were outstanding. As busy as they were the service was great and so was the ambiance

lure has great food but I find myself being turned off because of the service and cleanliness of the restaurant. The patio furniture is incredibly uncomfortable and cheap--it should be nicer for the cost people spend to eat and drink there. The outdoor bar is kind of grubby and dirty, and the inside smells like mildew. And I have to... More

We ate here last November and last night. Last night we sat on the patio, which I thought was really nice and relaxing (perfect night for it). We had reservations for 7:30 (Friday) and I put in the notes that I'd like to sit outside if it was nice out. Not a problem. My husband signed up for the email... More

I went to Lure for the first time with one of my girlfriends. We made reservations for 5:30 on Tuesday night - Tuesday is their 1/2 price sushi day, so we had heard it was a busy night for them. When we arrived it wasn't all that busy and we were sat out on the patio right away. Our server... More
