“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Lulu's has limited seating inside where I would only dine during inclement weather but there more outside an many area are under a covered patio. Make reservations for weekend as it be busy. The food is always fresh, prepared to order and delicious. Shrimp and calamari appetizers are always treats. Main course seafood dishes never disappoint.

“Very nice evening - great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We ate at Lulu's on a slow evening, which was great for us. Very attentive service and a relaxed atmosphere . We had the cheese plate, which was excellent and the chef came out and explained the different cheeses and the farm they were from. We both had a shrimp dish and each was excellent. The shrimp and scallops with Thai curry were great.We have eaten here over the years but this visit was very enjoyable.

“Lulu's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This restaurant is very small although there was plenty of outside seating. They have the very best crab cakes I've ever had. Also their shimp po boys were excellent. The service was fairly quick and very friendly.

“Very disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

We arrived at 9pm on a Saturday evening for dinner (that was the earliest reservation available). The setting was unique and the hostess was pleasant. The first five minutes on the property were nice then it went downhill. The server acted annoyed throughout the entire visit and looked us up and down. We ordered mussels for a starter and didn't eat half of them because they were tasteless. For mains we had linguine and clam and it was probably the worst I have had and the highlight of my boyfriend's fish tacos was the rice and beans. There was a stray cat roaming the property (fed by the staff) which would have been nice to know given my boyfriend is highly allergic. Would never visit again ... Very disappointed.

“Well taken care of”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We were there in time for SUN brunch, but were in lunch mode. Our waitress, Lori, checked with the owner to see what they could serve us other than brunch menu. Came back with the best shrimp and grits I've ever eaten with fresh, local shrimp. Also, grilled cobia that had been swimming in the ocean two days earlier grilled to perfection. We even got to see its picture! Thanks to Brian, the owner and Lori for a great anniversary lunch!
