THE SECRET LIFE Lucy’s was founded to honor the culture that surfers were raised on – what we’ve come to call The Secret Life. It’s a lifestyle that emphasizes no matter how far you are from the nearest reef break, or how lost you may find yourself in the concrete canyons of your daily lives, great food, killer drinks, and amazing service make for incredible memories. At Lucy’s, that’s what we do best. We wake up every day to celebrate the easy attitude found only the sandy fringes of civilization, where the only thing that matters is having a good time.

10/10 would DEFINITELY recommend. Our server MK was amazing. She stayed on top of the service game without being over the top. She engaged with my kids and they loved the stories she told. The food was fantastic, as were the specialty drinks. I got Mermaid Water, and my husband got the Shark Attack. The kids took our toys, of course. The atmosphere was laid back and fun. Perfect place for groups or first dates, kid friendly but also cool enough to have girls night out there. Will 100% return!

This was our 4th, possibly 5th experience. And each time, the live music inside is absolutely too loud. It’s a restaurant, not a bar scene. It’s so loud, it’s difficult to have conversations with the people who are sitting with you. The positives... 2 of us had the chicken sandwich and it was very good. I’d say, the best meal I’ve had there. Also, the service was much better than prior visits.

Feel bad for the service staff because they made it clear that they are extremely understaffed. It wasn’t a lack of trying on their part, they were just serving about 6 tables or so each. Guess you could say the service was as good as it could be for the circumstances. The food took over 1.5 hours for 4 ppl and it wasn’t anything complex, mainly sandwiches. The food was mediocre. Luckily they have the sand area for the kids to play in otherwise the wait for the food would have been more challenging. The ambiance is very nice but they definitely need more staff, better quality food and less wait time.

The host was friendly, but the restaurant was a mess. Food on the floor, drainage water on the deck, debris from previous table at our seat and trash in condiments holder. They were out of the item I wanted and the food was overpriced for what you got. Tourist trap indeed.

We had never been to Lucy’s and to be honest I had waited too late to reserve at our normal restaurants, but we were pleasantly surprised by Lucy’s. The noise level was a little too high, but we had a table outside overlooking the lake and that was really nice. The food was very good and our waitress was very efficient and helpful so yes we would go there again

It was great!
The menu was fun. The food was very good. My only criticism would be the buns used for the tuna burger are too much bread for the meat and were soggy. I’m assuming they are hit with butter at the end because that were soggy and greasy. None of us liked slippery soggy buns, but everything else was great!!!!!!

Without the buns, it would be 5 stares all day long!!!!!!

Saturday afternoon. Not busy whatsoever. Saw our waitress twice. Food was mediocre. Everything was filthy. Window ledges had obvious trash. Floors were sticky. Bathrooms were indescribable. Will not return.

Service was slow. We had to ask for a server. Saw her when she brought out drinks and when she presented check. Food runner brought food to table. Food was good. Tacos were particularly delicious.

We've dined at two of their four (?) restaurants, one in Aruba and one at OWA in Foley, AL. Both are very relaxed, open venues. The menu is mixed, but mostly seafood. The seared tuna is awesome! Nachos also great - even the next day!

At both locations they have both inside and outside seating. At OWA, they have an outside bar and live music. They also have cool tables on their deck that can gently swing while you enjoy drinks, food, music, and nice view of the lake and park.

Fun place to entertain friends - and stay safe from COVID-19 with outside eating and an uncrowded feel.

Had reservations at 7. Was seated immediately upon arrival at 6:50. The server arrived at our table at approximately 7:15 to take drink orders and only after I requested to speak with the manager, he returned to take food orders at 7:40 (50 minutes after being seated). Upon speaking with the manager, we were not offered any type of apology for the poor service. When we received the order, 1 was the wrong dish completely and 2 others had ingredients left off. The manager never returned to check in, nor did he offer his name. He did, however, have time to sit at the bar and chat with the musician who had just finished his set for the night.

Hard to find something on the beach during the pandemis limited seating. Lucy’s was a little ways up the road, but the service was great, food was good, and they took reservations. Worth the drive, will hit this place up again next time we are there.

The food and atmosphere was great!! The service was not good. Food was wrong, asked for more chips and a bag to put leftovers in that we never got. Gabe needs to learn the menu and write what the guest want in a notepad.

The place was empty. Our waitress was very nice. The GM, however, was unbelievably rude. We had a reservation for 12 at 8 pm. Arrived at 8. There was one other table of guests. Our table was not ready. It needed to be bused. Weird, because no one was there, but ok. Several of our other guests went across the street after we ordered appetizers to look at the shop. The GM asked me if they were coming back. I said yes, they just ran over to pickup a few things. Her reply was, “Well they need to order, we close at 9.” Shocked. I said it’s 8:30 and we haven’t even received our appetizers. We’re still planning on eating. She never returned. Our food was awful and the kitchen service was slow. We won’t be back. Which is a shame because it was such a cute place.
