I love LULU’s. I often choose it for important meetings, dates, and celebrations. I’ve never had an issue before there and honestly this is really just a tip. The seating is so close together that it was hard to get away from the stench coming from our neighboring table. Their body odor was so bad and because the tables are so close it was hard to get away from it. I know this was not your fault and obviously you can’t turn away customers for their odor, but maybe spread the layout out a bit. If possible! The food, service, atmosphere (other than the scented customer) was all great!

Expensive. Limited and unimaginative menu. Food was not fresh/ poor quality/ not visually appealing or tasty. We are not local and hoped for a special meal but were extremely disappointed. Location is lovely. Look for another option on the waterfront.

We recently enjoyed a family dinner at Lulu's. We had chicken and waffles; fish and chips; and the Steelhead plates. The food was delicious, although the grilled zucchini on the Steelhead plates were cold (thus left uneaten).

The food was tasty and served in a timely fashion except the main course came out before the soup was finished. Likely our fault for being more engaged with our conversation than our food.

Great place with a beautiful view and tasty food. It was my first time having some family visit since moving to the Tri Cities, but I sadly let them down. I believe that if there is a special on a menu (which servers suggest) it shouldn’t be sold out by 5:45pm on a Saturday... when it supposedly begins to get served at 5pm. Terrible planning.. they were definitely disappointed.

We selected this restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday while on a visit to the Tri-Cities. We made the reservation a few weeks prior to our visit. When we arrived, they put us in a corner table, by the window, overlooking the outdoor service desk? They did allow us to move, but only one table. Thought that was a disappointing place to seat us, considering it was a special occasion, the reservation was made weeks earlier, and the restaurant was pretty much empty (it was a Monday evening.) The service was fine, my husband enjoyed his dinner. My soup was good, but the fish in my fish and chips had way too much breading. I had to leave most of it. While I would recommend this restaurant to others, it is unlikely we would return on our next trip to the area.

My reservation requests were met as well as possible - window table, quiet corner, but because of the noise level and our hearing abilities as Seniors, we probably will not return, unless it can be on the Patio on a high quality weather evening. Enjoyed the first time experience otherwise.

The restaurant was extremely noisy compound by the open kitchen with the expediter constantly screaming.
My steak was terrible. It was advertised as 12 once but it was 10 onces at best. It was over cooked and tough. I have had better steaks from Albertsons.
My wife’ rib dinner showed up shortly after she was served her salad. The ribs were also tough.
Overall a terrible restaurant.

The fish and chips were not good, the Cole slaw was just weird, and the tomato soup was odd. There were 3 of us and no one enjoyed the food. The space itself is open and loud with no dress code so you’ll see lots of interesting attire. The location overlooks a boat ramp; what more can I say?

Food was outstanding - crab hash, waffle and chicken biscuit sandwich all great. The waffle really needs to come with the choice of a meat for the price though and the service was slow getting to food to us and snippy when asked why other tables with more guest that sat and ordered 10+ minutes after us had gotten their food already.
Great ambiance and food though so it luckily balances itself.

First of all I have to say the bar service is appalling! This is the second time we have visited and sat around the bar and after getting one drink you are completely ignored - no one comes and asks if you want another drink (the staff concentrate on the new people coming in and ignore the ones already there even if they are right at the side of the new people with empty glasses!). This issue really lets the place down and the staff obviouly need some serious improvements.

Once we left the bar area (we had arrived early for a reservation) we went into the main dining area. Our server was polite and very effient. We received our food in a timely manner and was checked up on regularly without it being too much). I ordered the Fish & Chips which was excellent and my wife ordered the Steelhead which again was excellent.


We enjoyed the location and food so we will not "give up" on this place just yet. They just need to fix the bar staff and it would be great.
