Was the perfect answer to our casual afternoon seafood lunch for our little mini reunion with myself, my sister and mother (and our spouses).
Christian our server was friendly, engaging, attentive and always available when we needed him.

Could not have had a better experience.

We go to Lulu's every Sunday for brunch and they take extra good care of us. They know our Sunday routine and everyone on staff goes out of their way to see that we're happy.

The music is always good, as is the boat watching on the Intracoastal.

Can't beat it!

Went for a business lunch. Atmosphere on the screened in porch was amazing on a beautiful fall day. Service was very good. Food could use an upgrade it was okay but just okay. Maybe some more fresh fish options.

Service started great and dwindled from there. Food was mostly good with a few exceptions like Luke warm baked potatoes and bland collards. Definitely would return but not at the top of the list.

This was the BEST BRUNCH I have had in ages. Seriously. It's not just that I haven't been out in awhile. We sat in a booth looking out at the water, had a nice waitress and the perfect meal. It was so hard to choose because the menu selections were great. I've been to Lulu's plenty for lunch, but never for brunch so was surprised. We started with the seared scallops that were perfectly cooked and tender. We paired that with, yes, the Mac my friend had the wedge salad that she added grilled shrimp to. We had another two join us who had fish bites and fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese as well as bottomless mimosas. Oh my heavens. Thank you Lulu's!

Very nice dinner al fresco. Our reservation was for 530pm for 5 diners. Ordered 4 apps, gator tail bites, dozen raw oysters, fried green tomatoes, and corn fritters, all super delish! Entrées included tacos with rice and beans, salmon Cobb salad, chowder and Caesar, Mac n Cheese, and corvina with greens and asparagus. These dishes were tasty and fresh, beautifully plated and full of flavor.
Dessert? Yessir, key lime pie and peanut butter chocolate pie.
We had plenty to take home and enjoy again!
Michelle took great care of us. She was helpful with the menu and patient with our special requests.

The fried green tomatoes were too thick with bread crumbs and very expensive. $14.95! Kale salad was ok but again $12 for kale with a few apples walnuts and raisins. Fresh catch was really good. Love sitting on the screened porch looking at the water. But food was too pricey for what you get for lunch.

Christian was the best server we have experienced in a long time . He guided us through the menu with excellent recommendations and humor to make us feel welcomed. The food was amazing . The best Cham chowder I have had since living up north 10 years ago . We even bought some of their Datil Pepper hot sauce to take home which I highly Recommend. It was raining when we went but we definitely plan to return when the weather is nice and are able to sit outside with live music . Looking forward to our second experience!

Decided this morning to have an early dinner at 5pm w a reservation for a party of three for outdoor seating.
Called ahead to ensure our preferred seating, Megan assured me that 5pm would be no problem.
We ordered Moscow mules w local vodka, so yum! We enjoy supporting local products.
Also ordered peel n eat shrimp, Cobb salad, tacos, and extra sides. Had plenty to take home!
By the time we finished, the parking lot was filling up fast.
We have eaten in and had take-out many times. We will add Lulu’s to our usual options.
Love the views!

Excellent food and location! Had a great sunset and sat outdoors for dinner. Pretty loud with a a large birthday party a table over from us. Guitarist/singer was very good. Service was a bit slow, but she was very nice. We all had the fresh catch, two as a dinner, two as a sandwich, and everyone's was excellent, including the sides.

The only negative I have is the server forgot to bring us a spoon when ask and she said she would. The entertainment was great but when you sit outside, it's hard to talk over the volume of the speakers. And it was only one singer! I can't imagine a band being out there. Othe then that, the food was delicious and we all enjoyed ourselves! The putt putt and outside area was great for the small kids in our party.

Have eaten here a few times during visits to the area and have always been pleased. This time was poor to say the least. I ordered the Captain's Combo which was Mahi,Shrimp and Oysters for $35. I got 3 tiny mushy oysters, 3 mushy fried shrimp and a small very mushy piece of mahi. The food was horrible not to mention the price of $35.....My wife had the fish taco's which consisted of one hard shell taco, a little lettuce and a fried block of some type of fish...…..
Not sure what's happened here but we will never go back.
Forgot to mention we were both up all night with upset stomachs...……..

Nice restaurant, but was not expecting a sports bar. Crab cakes were wonderful, shrimp and grits a little too spicy. Our waiter Gabe, was very engaging and fun! Nice selection of bourbons at the bar.

I can't comment on the view because it was dark when we arrived. We were seated on the deck. It was cool but our waiter lighted a heater which made it comfortable. I ordered shrimp and grits. My husband ordered fried shrimp and fried oysters with fries and Cole slaw. His fries were so salty he had to ask for plain fries. The shrimp and oysters were ok. The Cole slaw was bland. My shrimp and grits were also very salty. I mentioned it to the waiter and he replied that it was a lot of grits and often folks couldn't finish. Not much of a response! Not a place we will return to.

My friend and I sat outside and enjoyed ourselves until another patron arrived with their dog, off of the leash. I absolutely love animals - except when they are allowed to run around, unleashed, wagging their tail at my table level and spreading their dog hair on my food. The owner did not acknowledge that: 1) there is a leach law; 2) their dog was spreading hair. I was SORELY disappointed in the wait staff/management that merely greeted the dog by name instead of speaking to the patron about having their pooch off leash.

The food was great - until dog hair.
