“"Rounding up" the bill made the meal tasteless”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2010

Ok, another seafood restaurant, average food. Nothing to brag about. Ambience outside was nice. Too much salt in foods. It would have been an okay dinner. I paid the $40.42 check in cash. When the waiter returned with my change from a fifty, there was no $.58 change. When asked the waiter about the "change" he said rather matter-of-fact, we round it up.What?????He explained it was an accepted practice to round up and give no change. Needless to say, I will spread the word. I will pay what I owe, but don't "round up" my bill to your advantage. Our first and last experience.

“Great place to take your puppy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2010

Great food - try the Grouper Beurre Blanc and Mango Mojito. Excellent Gazpacho on a hot evening. Great service. Moderately expensive. Pet friendly on the Porch. Even provide a bowl of water for the puppy, (we took our yorkie).

“Don't Bother Going”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2010

Three of us had lunch on a recent Tuesday. Not many people in restaurant. One item recommended was a flatbread. When it arrived there was very little on it and looked and tasted like a dry cracker. Another ordered the chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries. It was alright but not great. I ordered their grouper sandwich which was suppose to be dipped in egg and corn flake crumbs and deep fried. The piece of fish was a very good size when it started out but was so dry and tasted like eating a cotton ball. No flavor. This came with one side, and the cost was $14. It was the worst "fish" I ever tried to eat. I did not send it back and ashamed that I didn't. It was immediately decided to cross this one off our list! We gave them high marks for having a cell phone booth. More restaurants need to do this!.

“Ummmmm..not sure where to begin!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2010

Should have listened to the reviews and our better judgement. Food was blah, service was poor at best. Sorry Lulus, saying your food is good is kind of like saying your restaurant is "Oceanside" -- not a reality.

“great food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2010

First time eating at Lulu's as part of a large party on the outdoor patio. Two of us had a large taco meal and a juicy hamburger -fun food that tasted great. I usually prefer dining indoors, but the party was outside and the atmosphere was very nice on the patio. Service was a little slow, but there was a large crowd.
The name "Beachside" would be more accurate than "Oceanside", one can only figure the name sounded catchy so it stuck. Overall we had a very nice experience at the restaurant.
