I have been a regular at this place for 20 plus years! Small menu and that's fine because each dish has been perfected! Great portions and worth the price. Only complaint is they need to brighten up the place, it's too dark! FAV dish is the chicken and shrimp creole and pecan chicken. ENJOY!

Our first visit to Sweet Lorraine's was spectacular! For appetizers we chose the calamari and the house made potato chips smothered in Gorgonzola cream sauce (not on the menu but prepared on request). All food is prepared in house and fresh daily. We shared the pecan encrusted chicken which has been on the menu for 32 years with good reason-... More

Very interesting and creative decor made for a wonderful ambience. Only take reservations for parties of 5 or more but you can get on a call ahead list for smaller parties and jump to front of...

It doesn't matter whether you're vegan, vegetarian, carnivore, or somewhere in between!!! You ARE going to love this place. It's such a treat. The portions are nice and sometimes you may even find a Groupon for lunch or dinner. My favorite is the Tuna/Salmon nicoise Salad. SO GOOOD!! It's about $16-$20... BUT you will get your $$ worth! The drinks... More

Vegan, vegetarian, or PETA (people eating tasty animals)...all can be happy here. Locally grown, fresh ingredients served with a constantly changing original twist. Original drinks...leaded or unleaded...and a laid back atmosphere. Creative.

Been going to this Sweet Lorraine's for many years. Love the easy, relaxed atmosphere, great cocktails and always a vegetarian option that's inventive. But the menu had become routine. Went last week and had a wonderful meal. Crispy Brussels sprouts starter was inspired. Spicy, crispy and a perfect share for two. Main course was a lovely, light and simple seafood... More

I had an evening out with my adult daughter and was trying to figure out a nice place to eat. After going through the usual list I remembered Sweet Lorraine's. And it turned out to be a good decision. Our server Scott, was friendly and the place was pretty full for a Wednesday night. We ordered cocktails, a "kick your... More
