L. May Eatery
Best in Dubuque!Our second meal there for Mother's Day was wonderful! The wait staff is excellent and always very attentive. Definitely will return!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable eveningWe celebrated Mother's Day at L May and, as usual, the food was wonderful. We have just one suggestion. Make your kids menu more kid friendly. A plain cheeseburger. Plain mac & cheese, etc. would be welcome for little ones.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMust stop spot when in townWe were traveling on a golfing weekend with friends and had to stop at L-May in Dubuque. We make it our must stop place whenever we are in the Dubuque area. Never had anything but a wonderful meal and experrience at L-May. I just wish it were closer to where we live ( Des Moines) so we could go more often.
It was the first time at L-May for our friends who were with us and they loved it too!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good specialsL-May always has specials that tempt the palate. It's hard to decide, some times.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite restaurantL.May is our favorite place to eat. Naturally when we had a special occasion to celebrate, we thought of L.May and they easily accomodated our group of 15. The pizza is the best we've ever had and the service was expceptional!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPlenty to love at L May EateryWe have eaten there several times and the food is always excellent. If you like wine you will not be disappointed at the selection. The service is very attentive and friendly. Recommend it highly.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSomething on the menu for everyone!We had a non-meat eater in our group, and there were lots of seafood options as well as salads for those who don't eat any meat. The crab cakes and bruschetta appetizers were delicious, as was my monkfish. I also tried the filet, which was prepared perfectly and was only $26 for an 8 oz., including a side and salad. Can't beat the prices for this level of dining!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA great experienceMy friend and I went to L May for a fun dinner during our visit to Dubuque. We loved it! We had great service, the food was fantastic and it is just such a cute place! I would definitely recommend it.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst ExperienceI ate at L. May for the first time on Saturday with a group of friends for dinner. We had a great experience! Lexie, our server, was awesome, providing food and wine recommendations and joking around with us and sharing stories about the restaurant. The food was outstanding, the osso buco was a favorite. We also had a vegetarian in the group with high standards and polenta provencal was also excellent.
I look forward to returning to try the bacon crab mac-and-cheese pizza!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTrying Something NewL May has been my favorite local treasure for years. I pride myself on ordering the osso bucco each and every time; and I am never disappointed. But, this week, I tried something new - polenta cakes with tomato vegetable sauce. It was just as delicious and even more appropriate for spring time...just loved it. Just goes to show that L May's menu is full of delicious choices so go ahead try something new!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent date night placeThe food was FANTASTIC server Chris was EXCELLENT!
The tables could have been placed better, it felt a bit cramped.
I have never ordered pork out at a restaurant and it was superb.
My husband likes his steak well done and has experienced many dry steaks but his filet was tender and juicy.
We will be back soon!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDessert to kill!Had a great dinner with salmon and steak and dessert was to die for :)4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friends and I love L.

Total win.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I were visitingMy wife and I were visiting Dubuque and read about L. May and saw that it was highly rated. We are suckers for local food spots! The people at L. May were very warm and welcoming. We had a very good waitress, and the food was very good. We split the pork, and the Dubuquer Pizza. Our only complaint was that while the pork was very tender it lacked a good supporting flavor. Would go again!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEverytime we go to lmay weEverytime we go to lmay we are never disappointed , love everything about this place, it is a must when your thinking of a good place to eat.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDate Night Dining GemMy husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our appetizers--a chili-lime shrimp dish and Harissa lamb and eggplant! We'd eaten the crispy, sweet-and-salty "Figgy Pig" pizza on previous visit, and it was also delicious, as expected. Our server was attentive and friendly, and the warm brownie with vanilla bean ice cream was a good recommendation for a dessert to split. Overall, we had a terrific dining experience!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting mix of ingredientsInteresting mix of ingredients make standards a stand-out.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular place nestledSpectacular place nestled in downtown area of Dubuque.

The white bean hummus, with a side of pickled vegetable and olive relish and plenty of pita wedges, was a great starter and enough for our table of four. The blueberry pomegranate martini was a really hit. We ordered the salmon with couscous, the lobster stuffed orange roughy, and the cioppino. It was all delicious and beautifully presented. The house salad and the warm bread with red pepper butter, wonderful.
