Food was awesome, service was excellent—will definitely recommend that everyone check Lula’s out. Our only disappointment was that there was no beer on tap.

They were out of half the menu, it took a very long time to get food. Quality of food was extremely poor. We used to love coming to Lula’s...doubt we’ll be back

My favorite restaurant since we stumbled upon it 3 years ago. Never had a bad meal. We never leave without having etouffe, the fried chicken and the brisket are the best I've had, and I wish I could just drink the bacon cream sauce!! Amazing! Lula's is a must whenever were in the area.

We especially enjoyed the Music of Zydeco Ziggie.
And we recommended Lulas to several folks who have subsequently been there.

We've been to Lula's many times before the expansion and the food was always wonderful. Our last visit was horrible. The server was mediocre at best. The cocktails are WAY overpriced. The fried chicken was GREASY, so greasy in fact I should have sent it back. My chicken was bathing in grease (I've had this many times and it has never ever been greasy). The shrimp in the Po' Boy was breaded in some very gritty "batter", should have sent that back too. Needless to say, we won't be back.

We didnt realize that the band was going to be electric... we had been there when there was acoustic music, and it was very pleasant. The band that was there was good, but way too loud for the room... and if I knew it was going to be that loud I would have requested to sit elsewhere.

The food was more than delicious. Truly exceeded our expectations. We were greeted quickly, and the waitstaff knew just the right moment to check on us. Only complaint we had was the entertainment. We sat close to the band in Lily Pearls so maybe we were too close, but while we could tell the musicians were extremely talented their sound mix was very poor. All in all, we will definitely be returning and would recommend to everyone. With a wide variety on the menu (alligator to burgers), there is something for everyone. Definitely worth the drive.

While we enjoyed the food, we found it to be a little bland. We came for the fried chicken, and found it to be a bland, not very flavorful. The crunch was good, but for the price we paid, the found the amount of sides to be small. Even our appetizer, for the price paid, the battered avocado were a very small serving. We wouldn't likely come back, and we likely wouldn't recommend it to a friend.

I had been hearing about it for a while and it lived up to all the great things I had heard. With the exception of my wife, the rest of us have all been professional chefs and chef instructors who are still involved in the industry on an administrative level these days. We were all impressed and pleased with the quality of the food. I personally loved the eclectic choices on the menu. Service was solid and I look forward to going back soon with some of my non-chef friends.
