“Eclectic ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

Freshest fish beautifully prepared. Creative cuisine! Delicious. The wine list is good and a good pour. This is a must do! Casual atmosphere with outdoor seating. Servers were busy but took time to answer questions. Friendly staff.

“Seafood chowder just average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

Met a group of friends for lunch on a cold and rainy day. Inside is very small and tight. The waitress was very friendly, and well versed on the menu. I ordered the seafood chowder because I read positive reviews. I was slightly disappointed in the soup. It was so salty the delicate coconut cream was overpowered and the amount of seafood was very average. My lunch companions said their food was good but no-one was raving. I would give it another try.

“Sort of funky, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

Back through the courtyard to a small place with somewhat crowded inside seating and more spread through the courtyard. Good variety of sometimes unique items with a little Cajun influence - make sure you hear about off-menu specials. Attentive service. Popular with locals and families who can wheel strollers and spread out in the courtyard.

“Excellent dining experience. You can't go wrong when eating here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

What a great experience! It is a non-pretentious atmosphere with exquisite cuisine. The waitress was knowledgeable and super friendly. We judge a place by their crab cake and this one was one of the best we've had. We both had fish entrees, snapper and grouper, which were very fresh and had great flavor. The chef came out to see how everything was, which added to our overall positive dining experience. We took home the banana toffee pie which was light and very tasty. Dining here added to the enjoyment of our trip. I highly recommend Lu Lu's!

“Teeny, Tiny but Oh So Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

Stopped by here after a Google search looking for the "best fish chowder in Amelia Island". It's a teeny, tiny place with only 7 tables inside (there's outside seating but it was a cold day). The fish chowder was wonderful -- a very light coconut cream with a broth seasoned to perfection -- and lots of seafood inside... Hubby and I also shared a Nicoise Salad with Grilled Salmon. Again, it was wonderful with lots of different greens, along with pickled beets, a scoop of homemade potato salad, olives, etc. Very well done. Service was very good and the place was packed with locals -- with others waiting outside for a table. Very pleased with this little place situated in an old Victorian style home.
