“Great family atmosphere”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Although the wait for dinner was 90 mins., it really didn't seem too long as there are plenty of activities to pass the time. The kids can play in the sand while you relax nearby on rocking chairs, and the older kids can play a game of pool. We opted to have drink next door at Lucy B's and then check out the gift shop. Dinner was good, lots of seafood and delicious key lime pie. At the end of dinner, you can grab a piece of colorful duck tape and write your name or a message and stick it on the wall. The kids really loved this idea.

“Totally Fun”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Really enjoyed this place , it is on the inter coastal waterway and huge place .Plenty of rooms for families and friends .Huge assortment on the menu and the service is excellent . I ate fish and my wife had burger both great (try the Lulu sauce on fish it is great). Enjoyed the Buffet music playing and they also have live music .Just a totally fun atmosphere you will enjoy .
Only one downer ... the restrooms are very small for a large venue as this .

“Good location and bluegrass music but food is average”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Visited on a busy Sunday evening. The area is well set out with a sand area and things to do for kids while you wait on a table. From 6pm they had a good bluegrass group outside. Not too loud so you needed to be near to hear them and the music didn't interfere with conversation over our meal.
The food is really average and priced a little higher than most places. I had a jerk chicken sandwich which came with a bag of chips $13.99 My colleague has combination of shrimp and catfish with fries $17.99. cocktails $8. It's a busy fun place full of holiday makers so worth a visit but I wouldn't be anxious to return.

“Touristy but fun”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Be prepared to wAit an hour to 90 mins with open tables in front of you. The store is cute and the restaurant is pretty and beachy. The food is good and the wait staff are nice. We eat here once every year for lunch and 11am-close there is ALWAYS a wait! They do provide free water bottles which is nice!

“A fun environment with good food”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

LuLu's was a unique experience. It's outdoors - no AC. Fun atmosphere that is obviously a popular spot...I'd recommend going at an "off" hour to avoid crowds if you're not there to hang out/wait and/or enjoy everyone else's company too. The burgers were good and the fries are unique and tasty. They have a really neat property set up with fun activities - sand box, rope climbing course and water walkers. Check out their website for more details. Our kids did the water walkers (jump inside a huge beachball, they blow it up, seal it up and let you float/walk in the pool without ever getting wet) and it was a lot of fun for them (ages 2 and 6) and us.
