We went here while we were waiting for our hotel room to be ready. It is in a great location, and had a great view. It was open so you could hear the ocean and feel the breeze. I felt the draft beers were overpriced at $7.00. The food was good. The poor service just ruins the whole experience. I... More

We ate at Lu Lu's last week and the food was okay. It's on par with an Applebee's or TGI Friday's. The restaurant has an open air style, so expect to dine in sticky heat and humidity instead of nice cool air conditioning. On the plus side, it provides excellent views of the ocean and people watching along the strip... More

We flew in to Pompano Beach and had a few hours to get some lunch before the return flight. As is the case with most layovers in Florida we went out in search of a good fish sandwich. Lulu’s Bait Shack was recommended by a local. It turned out to be good advice. The location is open air seating and... More

We ate here for lunch on our one day stop in Fort Lauderdale prior to cruise. On the beach, great views, affordable food and drinks. Sports bar. Casual. In an outdoor retail space shared with surf shops, ice cream.

This restaurant is on the second floor overlooking Beaceplace courtyard. They have a huge bar, and offer live bands. The place was constantly packed, but what isn't in Fort Lauderdale? Lol. My family and I went for dinner, and everyone was very pleased with their meals. Steak sandwich, mussels, shrimp quesadilla, crab cakes...everyone enjoyed. Average price was 12-15$ per meal....

LuLu's is a inexpensive spot to get a quick lunch or dinner. Although I did not have one, they have the fish bowl drinks that serve 2 or more. The prices were right and the food was good. They have mussels - 2 dozen for 12.95 - which was a great bargin and they were fairly large. Every night they... More

A very good meal at a modest price. We had wished we had tried this spot earlier on. Service was very good. Lovely view of the ocean

Had dinner with the family, it's a fun place with good food and huge fish bowl drinks. It's also in a fun beach section of Ft Lauderdale. We had a mix of food including apps, sandwiches. I had the Cajun specialties and they were awesome.

Thank Bob S
