I have made the trip a few times just to eat here. The chicken and waffles is fantastic. I need to try something else sometime as well.

I mentioned on open table, when I made our reservations, that we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary, but no one at Lula's made any acknowledgement towards it and maybe they didn't realize it or they don't acknowledge any special occasions. The wait staff was not very attentive to looking after us, but I think that was due to having too many tables to take responsibility for.

I will continue to recommend Lulas over and over again! They're the absolute best. It is always my first request when looking for a place in town to eat. Lulas is the best.

This was a birthday celebration, and everyone was pleased with the service. The steaks were outstanding. All of the choices made were exceptional. I was disappointed that the ham dinner was no longer on the menu...loved it! Our server was attentive, and friendly. The BBQ Pork was delightful. A good experience overall!

The food was great. Our server was non-existent. She said hello. Brought drinks, and only came back after my date got up and tracked her down. I work in restaurants as a Sommelier and service manager. I've never experienced that level of neglect before. Dining is experiential, not just functional. As far as I'm concerned the trip out was a waste, and my date and I felt very unwelcomed. In fact I typically don't write reviews, but this warranted a word.

If you like Cajun New Orleans style food this is the place for you. They have less spicy items on the menu, but the draw is Cajun. It also has great ambiance with lots of wood and brick. I will definitely go back.

First experience here and well worth the drive to Owosso. They offer creole food cannot find elsewhere and they do it well. While the fried chicken is their specialty, the creole dishes are outstanding.

We went on a Friday evening and had a 7:45 reservation. We were seated immediately, so they weren't overly busy. The only complaint I have is that our server seemed to forget we were even there. Everytime he was supposed to bring us something, he just simply forgot. Never asked if I'd like another drink, never refilled my water. The to-go box wouldn't even close, but it didn't bother him Finally, when we were just ready to go, he took forever to bring us our bill. The food was great, but the service was just poor, and for no apparent reason. I might give them another chance, but I'm wary of bad service.

My husband travels to Owosso for work We always make sure we go to Lula's we have never been disappointed . The food is always fantastic , if it is the chef's special or something off the regular menu it is always fresh hot and tasty. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and friendly. Price is reasonable for the size of the portions. We always have ;leftovers for a midnight snack .

Hubby loved the gumbo and jambalaya. My brisket was very dry.

Neither of us felt the food was worth what they are charging, but we are also fortunate to live in an area that has amazing food at more reasonable prices.

Happy we checked it out, but not sure we would make the 45 minute drive again.

I made a reservation for 3, and was seated ahead of the arrival of the rest of my party. HOWEVER when they arrived, they were told your staff didn't see my reservation, had no reservation and they were seated at another table. Had I not been seated at the window, I would have not seen their arrival. I had to go get them when they weren't shown to the reserved table where I was seated.. I was very unhappy regarding the ineptitude of the staff at the front. The food was great and our waitress was fantastic.
