I was a bit afraid that this would be another “trendy” restaurant with the same old menu item. We were both pleasantly surprised. We made reservations for a 12:15 lunch on a Wednesday. Plenty of parking available, no need for valet. We waited less than...More

Really nice menu with excellent, attentive staff. Open concept, so it could be a little loud when crowded (or with rowdy children). Nice patio area will be fun to visit with cooler weather.

Stopped in here during the week for a quick client lunch. The char broiled oysters were AMAZING! I could barely hold myself back from licking the empty shells! The lobster roll was ok. Plenty of lobster but flavor was somewhat lacking. I cannot wait to...More

The food and service were great; alligator hush puppies, Tomahawk pork chop, flank steak...all very good. Definitely OVERPRICED for the amount of food that you get though. Parking is not good - no parking next to the restaurant (like you'd normally see).

Food was great, service was great, hydration station lager is a great choice for low cal drinks. Our biggest complaint was the bloody mary’s. Ulele’s downtown should really use the same ingredients used at Ulele’s at the airport. Airport Ulele’s bloody’s are amazing, especially the...More
