“Great Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Had dinner here with my wife on 5/18. Crab cake appetizer to share. Dinners were fried grouper filet with crawfish etouffee and shrimp and scallops in red curry. Both were outstanding. Great and unimposing service. Wonderful atmosphere. The owner came by twice to check on our satisfaction with the meal. A must try while visiting Amelia Island. Will be back. Brian was our server.

“Lulu's for dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

My wife & I were recently in Fernandina or a wedding when we ran across Lulu's Great little restaurant just off the strip downtown. We were enthusiastically greeted by one of the owners and got right in on a rainy Saturday night. We started with the calamari (which is large enough for 3-4) and a fantastic blend of sweet & spicy. Our server insisted we have the Mac & Cheese which was a delicious alternative to their popular shrimp & grits.

“AWESOME Po'Boy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

My wife and I ate here one evening on our visit to Amelia Island. The atmosphere was pretty relaxed; cozy, a little funky and eclectic with white tablecloths. We decided to share the calamari and "Love on a Plate" salad - both tasty; but the star was the Oyster Po'boy (served with the quintessential Zapp's Cajun Crawtator chips, my wife's favorite). The oysters, out of Apalachicola, were huge and sweet, there must have been a dozen of them on the sandwich. Bread was soft but sturdy. For only $10, we agreed it was the best Oyster Po'boy we've had both in and outside of Louisiana.

“Great Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

My wife and I had dinner here hoping to have a relaxing dinner in a unique setting. LuLu's delivered on both accounts. The food is creative and well thought out but not overly complicated. Delicious food in a relaxing and quaint setting. Try not to be in a hurry when you visit. This a place to kick back and enjoy yourself.

“Brian is the Master”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

There is nothing that this man cannot do exceptionally well. His sense of taste brings the essence of every well proportioned flavor to the forefront.
