We have eaten here many times. Last week we jsut stopped for drinks and appetizers at bar. Very good bruschetta and gin and tonics. In the past the YOU're in Dubuque pizza is really great too. Bread pudding a must. Good addition to Dubuque restaurants, nice location downtown where lots of new things are happening, new stores, restaurants etc.. So glad they are reinvigorating downtown. Urban renewal was a bust for this downtown...

Easter Brunch this year, I think we will try it.

Overall a good place, nice people. Once and while the entree misses but it is good quality food.

For my first time in Dubuque...We were very lucky to have come across L.May Eatery..the staff was very accomodating from the minute we walked in. We probably should've had a reservation but for a Saturday night around 7:30 the wait time wasn't that bad. Colin our waiter was very good, very knowledgable. Kudos off to the chef.. We started off with the Bruschetta...YUM it is a must order..I had the Mediterranean Shrimp and thought it was WONDERFUL and He had the Seafoood L.May said that it was WONDERFUL also. The salad and dressing were great along with bread and flavored butter. The desert was simply delicious. Great place for a night out with friends or a Great Place for a date!!

Have had a few different experiences at L.May and all have been positive. They know how to pay attention to the little thhgs -- and how to treat solo diners. Really good food. Excellent recommendations and commentary by the server. Surprisingly good wine list.

Really liked the house salad dressing, great atmosphere. A little pricey but you get a big portion.

L.May is the Cheers for Dubuque. You always get a warm hello when you enter and, when it is time to depart, a sincere thank you. In between, the food, drink and fellowship can't be beat. The best neighborhood place in town. If you want to truly get the flavor of Dubuque, visit L. May.
