    The build out of the old Gusto space is very well done. Lots of privacy and noise dampening. Tasteful shades of blue. Nice bar area. Food is very well done and presented well. Tuna tartar is good but small portion. Lobster roll very good but pricey at $32. We will go back for dinner to see how rest of menu plays out.

    Took my husband here for Father’s Day! Had the kindest waiter and was super patient with our young kids. The food was excellent! I had a short rib hash and he had a friend lobster Benedict. Both great! Will be back when we visit the island again!

    Love Lulu Kitchen. This is our 6th dinner here in two months. The menu is concise and a delicious variety of offerings. Farm to table, fresh and well prepared. Chef Scott is a creative chef and his salmon is the best over ever had! Servers and all staff are extremely friendly. Try it…you’ll love it👏

    First time to Lulu's after hearing great things about it and the menu looked fantastic. I ordered the oyster Poboy on the recommendation of our server. The menu listed Flash Fried Oysters in the description - they were warm at best and if there were 3 good size oysters in the sandwich with pieces it was generous for $19. The French roll on the other hand was one of the best I’ve had since living in SC and the chips were tasty. My friend had the swordfish taco’s - she said they were good, but again 2 small tacos and a slice of cantaloupe for $18. Add two glasses of wine and your talking $60 ++ for a lunch leaving you still feeling a bit hungry. The service was excellent which is saying a lot in the current environment of no help and short staffs. I think Lulu’s has potential and will give it another try, perhaps at dinner when it’s a bit busier before I take it off my list of potential local favorites.

    We were greatly impressed with Lulu’s and will definitely return. The menu is quite diverse with many items that we would like to try. There are a number of lobster offerings and it was a Seafood Salad and a Lobster Crepe appetizer that stole the day. Both were unique in their presentation and absolutely delicious. The service was spot on and a visit to our table by the owner made a delightful meal even better. Lulu’s is owned, managed, and loved by a husband and wife team. Lulu was their dog.

    Great restaurant with fresh ingredients. Most other big name restaurants on the island are owned by one large organization that doesn't use fresh local ingredients. Lulu Kitchen is a refreshing break from the otherwise monotonous options of this big conglomerate. I had the swordfish tacos and my husband had the lobster roll. They were so good. I can't wait to go back!

    Food was excellent. Server was very attentive, stopping by several times to see if there was anything else we needed. Chef came out of kitchen and was very personable, conversing with several tables. We had previously been at Lulu’s for brunch on several occasions but this is the first time we were there for dinner. Will definitely be back.

    Amazing food and service!!!! Wow!!! I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. We had really wanted to try it as we read such good reviews and honestly, our expectations were surpassed. We went for brunch and ordered the Mache Salad, the White Cheddar and Bacon Waffle Fried Organic Chicken dish, the Chicken Fried Lobster Eggs Benedict and the homemade Key Lime pie and everything was delicious! The menu has a unique combination of ingredients and flavors. Our server Jeffrey was wonderful! We also had the pleasure of chatting with the owner, Jennifer, who is so sweet! We can’t wait to go back to Lulu to eventually try everything on the menu!

    We went for brunch last minute. This is an undiscovered gem. I almost don’t want to tell you how great it was. The decor is lovely. It was clean the staff was very friendly and attentive. I had brisket hash. So good. The price was reasonable for what we got. The only suggestion would be to have the overhead fans going on porch even early to keep air moving outside. Other than that. AWESOME

    Food was terrific overall. Husband had short rib grilled cheese with homemade parmesan chips. He said sandwich was amazing and we both LOVED the chips! I had shrimp and grits. In the top 5 of all time for me. Perfectly prepared! Husband also had an Arnold Palmer that he said he liked better than any one he's had before. All in all a great meal. Would definitely go there again next year on our trip back here!

    Food makes up for the lack of ambience. Service was friendly, owner's wife was very pleasant to speak with and very down to Earth, proud of their accomplishments here as she should be. Portions appeared to be small but quality made up for it completely. Great food does not have to be in large portions for sure. Excellent meals. Best crab cake ever and wonderful scallops and salmon. So enjoyed it all. TO DIE FOR: Key Lime Pie, outrageously scrumptious is how I describe it; amazing and worth every penny. Wow from a true dessert aficionado! Kudos.. Downside: alcoholic beverages were over priced which forced us to decline our typical start of dinner cocktails. $15.00 for a cocktail is way too high. We live here and understand the market issues at this time but cocktails should rarely be over $10.00 in this type of environment.

    This was our second time dining at Lulu Kitchen. We first went for Sunday brunch which was divine and came back two days later for dinner. As with our first visit, everything was wonderful. We were warmly greeted by Jennifer who actually remembered us from Sunday is just delightful! Chef Scott also came to the table and we really enjoyed getting to know the two of them a little. The food exceeded 5 stars! I had the Zoe salad, Salmon and asparagus - which were perfectly grilled with a nice sear, and a delicious apple crisp. My husband had the fried chicken with corn, mashed potatoes and gravy and cornbread and cleaned his plate! LOL! His chicken was perfectly fried with a light batter and the cornbread was to die for - crispy on all sides (!) and not sweet or “corn cake” as I call it, like we’ve had in other restaurants. My husband was probably tempted to slap my hand away from his plate as I kept sneaking pieces! He also had the key lime pie which he said was the best he’s ever eaten. We are grateful we’re locals and will be back frequently!

    We had a wonderful experience from the moment we walked in. Omar greeted us warmly and was also our server. He got all of the details exactly right which can be difficult since I’m one of those “this and that on the side, please” people. We went for brunch and the food was fantastic! My husband had the steak and eggs and I had the Zoe salad with crab cake. I expected a few pieces of mango and papaya and maybe a few pistachios but this salad was loaded with all of them and the crab cake was one of the best I’ve ever eaten. We are going back for dinner this week and will be adding this to our regular rotation. Thankfully we’re locals.

    When just the two of us, my wife and I prefer to sit at the bar. The bartender is very service oriented, customer centric. The owners are beyond incredible, friendly, always greeting everyone no matter how busy it is. This is just such a friendly, upbeat and happy environment. The menu is both eclectic and regional to taste. New England lobster dishes, oysters both local and from the northern areas, chicken from local farms and aged beef at its very best. In the end two seafood dishes also stand out incredibly. They make their own pasta and make their own desserts too, so save some room!
