The LuLu’s burger was great, and my friend enjoyed her shrimp tacos. Our server was friendly and attentive.

Screened porch dining experience was very comfortable. The food was great, but slightly pricey. Drinks were a little pricey too and there weren’t enough mixed drink specials. Overall, the experience was good.

Have eaten here many times and loved it....this time I was very disappointed in the food. The hush puppies (which used to be my favorite) were large, cold and drenched in grease. Shrimp scampi didn’t have much taste and the green bean were cold and undercooked. What’s going on?

Great little place on the water. My husband had the shrimp & grits and thought it was fantastic. I had a burger and it was also incredible. I can’t wait to go back.

We came in 4 adults and a 3 year old that slept the whole time and a 10 year old totaling 6 people. On the bottom of the menu it says gratuity added 6 or more. Well because they have been slow the waitress said she added on Gratuity. She didn’t have to but because they assured her money she did even though she didn’t consider my daughter a person because she didn’t bring her food a drink or a coloring book she slept the whole time. We asked her can you take that off because you really didn’t wait on 6 people more like 4 1/2 and she said no. We felt like she judged us as soon as we walked in and didn’t care how she treated us because she knew she would get her 20% regardless of her service. Manager gave us a gift card as we walked out.... what does that do for us? We are visiting?????

Lulu's never disappoints. I eat at this restaurant frequently and they are always spot on service and food quality.
Highly recommend seeing the amazing sunsets while sipping a cocktail on their patio.

It was Mother's Day and we waited nearly 1.5 hours for our food. When it came out, my order was completely wrong and my husband's wasn't even presented. A few minutes after sending mine back and asking where his was, the manager came out to tell us they had run out and the only option was for us to order something new, and start from scratch. We had been there with two kids for an hour and a half. There was no way we were staying to wait longer. So I left with no food for my Mother's Day Brunch. Not impressed AT ALL.

Everything about the evening was just average. Food was ok service was good. Someone had the fresh catch and it was bland and over cooked. Certainly not somewhere I would rush back to dine.

My wife took me here for my birthday, and on the reservation she informed me she indicated it was my birthday. There was no mention or acknowledgment of that. Our server seemed distracted or overwhelmed. Servers around us would visit there table 2-3 times before we saw ours.
The food was very average and had issues. We ordered the Palm Valley Burger Medium, it was well done, and served without any Garlic Mayo Aoli and no side at all, just the burger on the plate. I would think the runner or server would have caught that when the food was brought out. She was nice enough to take that off the check for the issues. I also had a caesar salad. It was about 1/3 of the size of my wife's wedge for the same price, and the croutons were old and rock hard. We also had the Mac and Cheese and there was definitely not any gouda on top.
I have at here before and been very pleased, but not for over a year, hopefully this was just a bad night, but a very disappointing birthday dinner.

Took over 1 hour 20 minutes to get our first piece of food. Very uneven preparation of food for the tables (table that came into the restaurant 20 minutes after us was eating appetizers and entrees before we saw any food). Once the food came, some of it was Luke warm. Mentioned the problems to the manager but no reaction by him. They indicated the kitchen was backed up. I guess that’s our problem and we just have to suffer.

We will not recommend this restaurant.

Great early dinner on Saturday evening. Sat in screened in porch. A lot of seafood options and a few others. Good waterfront dining.., not beach front.

We enjoyed the view of the sunset from the screened patio. The food was really good - we tried several appetizers and liked them all, in addition to our entrees. The service was good but a little slow. It took a long time to get our bill after we were done eating and ready to leave.

I've been going to Lulu's since they opened. It was our favorite place to go eat. We knew the owners, the staff, and it felt comfortable. When Lulu's changed hands several years ago, we stopped going, and it would be several more years before we finally tried it out. The menu is basically the same, which works for us. The interior (including the screened in patio, has been spruced up, but still the same vibe. We do not go 1x or 2x a week, as in past years, but we go a couple of times a year (for nostalgia). I haven't been there since last summer (2018). I had guests coming to town, and I wanted to take them someplace local. I chose Lulu's, as I feel it is more local than some of the other "local" restaurants. Happily, LuLu's didn't disappoint.

I already did a google review and I have never complained about any place but this visit really was not good. I have been here before and sat outside by the water and it was nice. This time although we requested to be sat outside they sat us inside a screened in patio at a table for 2 that was literally 2 inches next to a table of 8 along a wall like we were part of that party. We requested to move outside and girl (Carol) said no because no one was serving out there. My wife than asked for an open booth right by us and she said no because tables were reserved(I had a reservation myself). They then sat 2 more people on the other side of us at maybe 4 to 6 inches away. So ordered drinks and the drink for my wife came out terrible. We asked to have it remade. Dinner entrée took a long time. Fried Shrimp dinners had a terrible taste...old oil? Sides were iffy. We sat for 20 min waiting for server so we could just get check and that's when the remade drink showed up right when we got check and of course the drink was on bill. I said nothing. Server didn't care employees didn't care so I guess we will not go back.

Lulu's is always a favorite for us. This visit was during TPC and we were there with friends in for the tournament. Each year they insist that one night of their visit will be spent at Lulu's. Considering the crowd, service was excellent as was the food. There was a good band outside, so we relaxed after dinner at an empty table and finished our drinks while listening to the music. A very enjoyable evening!
