Visited Lulu's again this year. Both of us had the shrimp baskets. Very good! Entertainment was just also tonight. Has been very good before. Very fun place to visit. Wait staff is always good.

“What is all the fuss about? Very average.”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

It seemed like everyone told us that we had to go to LuLu's when we mentioned where we were going for our vacation. So we went. I truly do not understand what the fuss is about because the food and service was average at best. I had the fried green tomato BLT. They didn't even know how to fry a green tomato. It was greasy and uninteresting. My husband had the crazy sister's burger - which he said was also average. He also had the Lulu's beer which tasted watered down.

While the prices were not outlandish, the food was not that good. I don't get it.

“Nice atmosphere, but overrated.”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

This place is for tourists, there is no denying that. We went here because during our first night we ate across the water at ACME, and LuLu's was so busy that we thought we had to try it before we left town. We started with an appetizer of fried crab claws, which were good, but not worth the $21 I paid for them. I had the mahi tacos, which again were just ok. I was a little disappointed, since the quality of the food didn't reflect the prices. Our server was very nice, and we did have better service here than the majority of the other restaurants that we visited. David had the fried oysters and grilled shrimp, and while both were good, we had better during our trip. The next time I'm in Gulf Shores, I'll probably try something new.

“Must visit to let the children play and visit the gift shop!”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

LuLu's has a great marketing manager and upon visiting you will feel the same way. There is a park for children to enjoy playing. A large gift store with so rehung for everyone. The prices for the food are a bit high. It is colorful and you feel good after your visit.

“Exceeded expectations!”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

We started our lunch off with a half order of cold shrimp and guacamole & chips. Should have ordered a full pound because they were just that good. The guacamole was as good as I make! Seriously, it was excellent!!! We washed that down with JB's Mo Perfect Margarita made with fresh juices and premium tequila. It was so heavenly we decided to order a second round. The Crab Melt was really, really, really good and the fish tacos were equal. They've got quite a nice complex with another outside bar (Bama Breeze) complete with a couple of sand play areas for the kids and a nice gift shop, too. This was a really nice place to visit and enjoy their food and hospitality.
