My wife and I stopped to visit when we had a night free. Let me start by saying Lure has a very nice patio area. We very much enjoyed the atmosphere! We started of with the coconut shrimp. Very good I would order again. I had the crab stuffed fish. The flavor was good, but the fish was slightly over... More

We went with another couple & all four of us LOVED our meals! Three of us love oysters & couldn't wait to try the Vodka Oyster Shooters. It was so good. The double shot glass contains a mixture of pepper vodka, spicy Tabasco & oyster was heavenly. The coconut shrimp are to die for! I saw in the menu that... More

It can get expensive when you go out to eat at a nice place so our experiences at Lure during happy hour prices is awesome. We still can rack up a decent bill with all the delicious appetizers offered but otherwise would be ridiculous at regular prices. Downtown Willoughby is a nice place to hang out with friends but we... More

It's one of my favorite spots in DTW. I'll usually go with friends on Tuesday for half priced sushi. The sushi is always good, love the changes in the menu with the seasons and the patio in the summer is wonderful. Love their margaritas also. Definitely recommend Lure Bistro!

Great place to grab sushi and a drink after work. Love the caprese salad, as well! Great selection of beer, wine, and specialty drinks. Patio has a very laid-back, casual ambiance. Servers were attentive. Parking can be tricky so recommend (free) valet.

We had ha nice time and the menu selection was great. I enjoyed the sushi myself. That is all I eat when I am there. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We sat on the patio it was a beautiful night. The only problem, there were signs everywhere for 3-1-2 beer, which is my husbands favorite and they didn't carry it. So,... More

We have been to the Lure Bistro a few times. This was the best thus far. It was a beautiful night so we sat outside on the patio at an umbrella table. I had a marvelous chicken pasta dinner. My fiancé had a wonderful dinner as well and raved about the sushi and oyster shooters. They had a wonderful selection... More

Lure has one of the best patio's, but when they are moderately busy, the service is awful. We were there on June 3 with another couple and sat at the bar. We finally got one drink each, asked three times to order food and the bartender (a bit older man with a crew cut) did a great job of ignoring... More

Had a very good meal when traveling through town. Off the main road and may not be noticed if you aren't from the area. Place filled up on a Friday evening. Oldies played softly in the background. Plenty of waiter attention. Had some nice bread with cinnamon honey butter. A little sweet with bread but nice touch to have a... More
