We were looking for a quiet place for dinner. I love fish and my husband is definitely a meat lover. Menu looked good. In the upstairs room the table next to us was very loud and the music was loud as well. Food was good - not outstanding. Maybe it was just our mood. I would certainly go back and... More

Excellent food and service. One of us had the signature dish, Crab Crusted Grouper with tarragon cream sauce, and declared it one of the best dishes she ever had. Both started with salad of roasted butternut squash and greens with goat cheese. Excellent. I had the daily special of Striped bass and it was done perfectly. Delicious. Our waiter (sorry,... More

Most recently we started with a salad,mine was a wilted baby spinach, very tasty. An appatiizer of Ahi Tuna Tar Tar. Maki rolls were the... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Willoughby, the fish is always so fresh and the chef is amazing! You have got to try the Ahi tuna nachos they are so delicious! I love the crab stuffed grouper, my husband loves grouper but not crab so they will make it different for him. During the summer the outside patio is so... More

My wife and I have dined here several times when visiting Willoughby. Lure is always one of our stops for fresh sushi. The menu changes regularly and we have always enjoyed the various rolls. Decent selection of craft beer on tap and the bar area is nice but small. We have been here in the summer, fall and winter. If... More

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.
