Had a very nice lunch at Lulu's on Main. Patio seating with the pup's. The baked brie was excellent and the spinach salad with gorgonzola hit the spot. Would definitely come back.

We happened upon Lulu's because it was one of the only places open on Sunday evening in Sylva. Unique menu to say the least. When a resturant offers roasted goat, that is unique. I didn't try it but had pork with mango salsa. Very good....More

We went on a Monday and most places were closed in town. This was a fine lunch with slow service. I had a very smokey french onion soup. The covered patio out front is nice to watch the town.

The house salad was a nice mixture of leafy greens with tomatoes and cucumbers. My husband had beef bourguignon which he really enjoyed. I got grilled salmon, which was over cooked and charred. The accompanying rice pilaf was good as was the broccoli.

Lulus has delicious food. The service was good. No a/c and poor circulation of fresh air and the room was dark. It’s also very quiet...background music much needed...we could hear other table’s conversations. We won’t revisit.

Had lunch with some friends today. We split the baked Brie appetizer, and it was absolutely delicious. One of my companions said that if she wasn’t dignified, she would’ve licked the plate! Fast and friendly service, and our entrees were fresh and tasty. Only draw...More

Embracing its place in the heart of the downtown Sylva, North Carolina since 1989, the restaurant reflects the local atmosphere and welcoming spirit that makes Sylva hum.
