Reviewed January 28, 2013

Always welcoming and accommodating. Great food, Great atmosphere, and Great service; All around worthwhile. I always leave glad having spent the evening at Lmay. Owners, Chefs, Bartenders, Servers, and Bus Staff all know their business, creating seamless and seemingly effortless experience for guests. Thank you especially to Denise. She is always the epitome of quality service and is consistently the highlight of the evening.

“Awesome service & food!”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

We try to get to L.May for an evening of great food and service when we are in town. Chris B. has become our favorite server. All of the staff is great and welcoming. We like to enjoy a cocktail at the bar & visit with EJ before being seated. We get excellent suggestions for the evening entrees and wine pairings & like to dine there for special occasions as well as more casual times. We tell everyone we know travelling to Dubuque that L.May Eatery is the place to be for food, service and atmosphere.

“Great Place!!!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

L. May Eatery is an awesome restaurant with a romantic atmosphere! My wife and I went to celebrate our anniversary and they were very accommodating (even gave us a free dessert!) They were bustling and full of people and the food was unbelievable. Chris was a great server and even was willing to put our order in late so we could enjoy our evening there even longer.

“Best.restaurant.in.the.tristates!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I grew up here and I can honestly this was the best food and the best service I've ever had here. My fiancé and I both got the Osso Bucco and it was devine. I took home leftovers just so I could savor it longer! Our server Chris was fantastic! He even asked what the occasion was and brought me a complimentary dessert to ring in my 25th year! Had a great Chilean Merlot to top it all off. Thanks so much for the great everything! I don't have to say I hope you stick around for a long because the way things are going there's no way you'll fail!!

“Anniversary Weekend”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We visited Dubuque, IA, recently to shop at the Graham's Style Store and celebrate our 15 year anniversary with a 2 night stay at the Hotel Julien (which is beautiful) and both places recommended L. May for dinner our first night there. It was fabulous! The food was awesome! One of the people who recommended it said whatever the special is, have it, it's always wonderful and it was! Our server's name was Emily and she was also wonderful! She was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely eat here again when in Dubuque! Highly recommend.
