Sweet Lula’s Restaurant is a BYOB avant-garde unique romantic dining experience in Pitman, New Jersey. We are family owned and operated by executive chef Anthony Asbury (a very famous Puppeteer) he has an Emmy displayed in the restaurant! We also play movies which we project onto a large screen. We are a free-flowing scratch kitchen plus veggie, vegan, and gluten-free friendly. We highly recommend the Avocado Fritter stuffed with lump crab meat then drizzled with spicy mayo.

We are open Thursday to Saturday 4 pm-9pm for dinner. Come and try our food and see what everyone is talking about. Reservations 6 or more please call us directly at (856) 589-2400.

First time dining here.Service was great .Food excellent overall,definitely going back, plus BYOB...
Our dinner at Sweet Lula’s Restaurant in downtown Pitman was terrific. The ambience of Sweet Lula’s can’t be beat. It’s comfortable and inviting. The staff, especially Louise and Dakota, are professional and friendly. I’m not sure how he does it, but Chef Anthony made our meals like we were the only people in the restaurant – as if his only job was to cook for our table of two. We ordered the butternut squash soup and cranberry winter walnut salad for appetizers. The soup was creamy, hot, and tasty. The salad was crisp with fresh goat cheese, walnuts and lots of cranberries. Next, we ordered the jumbo lump crab cake which was large and fluffy. It contained lots and lots of crab along with a perfect remoulade sauce and spices. The pork tenderloin was served in a sweet port demi-glace. It was tender and tasty - among the best I’ve ever had. All of this was complemented by our favorite wine – which we brought ourselves since Sweet Lula’s is a BYOB. My only regret was that we didn’t have any room left for dessert. Pitman is lucky to have such a high quality restaurant and you can bet we’ll be back to explore more menu options at Sweet Lula’s.
Perfect pre-theater dining. Great menu, hard to choose from. Food was delicious in very nice sized portions. And they did not rush us out while we sat waiting for theater to open.
Great restaurant, nice service and enjoyable evening
We had a wonderful time at Sweet lulas and I will return. I will say that going during the height of the theater crowd made the restaurant extremely noisy and we had to wait quite a while for our food. Now in all fairness we did tell the waitress that we were not in a rush, but even by that standard it was long. So my suggestion is to make sure that you know the schedule of the Broadway theater in Pitman and make your reservation accordingly.
However my biggest issue was the dock. It was delicious. And cooked to perfection. However there was too much sauce and nor enough duck. So next time Less sauce and More Duck please. My hubby had the ravioli and it was Very Good! The fact that the owner came by our table was so nice. She is lovely and also we were told that she owns the restaurant down the street. We will be trying it as we love Mexican food!!
Dont go during show times it's way too busy and they are understaffed. You will wait an hour to get bread.
Always a treat to come back to our favorite local eatery. The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly. We feel like we are part of the family when we dine here.
Food was great! Staff worked as hard as possible-just seriously short staffed. Noise was a little bit much.
Would absolutely go again
Great good , atmosphere and excellent servers .
Highly recommend :)
Thank you so much for the great review
None of us were too thrilled with our food - unfortunate
I hope you give us another try . Happy Holidays
Our food was cold, and I’m pretty sure that the dumpling appetizer was the same potstickers that I buy at Aldi. Not at all worth the price we paid
Food was excellent especially the duck breast with cherries . Service was swift and friendly . They did forget our salads but the meals were so plentiful with both fresh veggies and potatoes that we skipped the salad course. Grilled banana dessert delicious!
Thank you for the great review!
Delicious! We love coming to Sweet Lula’s. We’ve never had a bad meal.
Thats so sweet thank you!
Excellent food and service!!
A great place with quaint atmosphere and outstanding menu choices! Service was on point!
We highly recommend the crab cakes and steak. Both were excellent.
The food was so good. The restaurant was a great fine. I googled places near the Pitman Theater and made a reservation. So glad I did. Rose, our waitress was amazing! Will definitely be back!
I cannot say just how good dinner was tonight. Dee had a wonderful pork tenderloin, I had chicken marsala, and the birthday boy had crab cake. All cooked to perfection. A must visit in Pitman. Bonus: Irish store right across the street. Can’t wait to go back.
Got there at 6:15 and did tell them I was waiting for somebody so that was fine. Sat down around 625, nobody came over until 640 and it wasn’t even our waitress. Five minutes later someone else came over and asked, did somebody greet you and I said yes. Food was very good but nobody came over to check on us and I had to wait almost 15 minutes for the check. And they were not that busy towards the end.
Cozy restaurant with good food and great service
Not happy with our experience. Advised that we had show reservations for 8:00 pm upon entering. Service extremely slow. Waited at least 45 minutes for our food. Menu is pricey and food was adequate. bill was calculated incorrectly, however waitress was very appologetic for error, it happens but furter delayed our exit.
Very enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend and will certainly return again soon.
Sweet Lula’s was a nice surprise. The food was high end yet reasonably priced. The waitress, chef, and management went the extra mile to provide a wonderful experience.
Sweet Lula's is a very nice restaurant to visit when in Pitman. I really love that when the night starts to settle down, Chef Anthony says hello to each and every table. And of course, the food was excellent.
Food was ok…very bright space
This restaurant is a gem!! Food is consistently excellent. Service is tops! and the atmosphere is so relaxing. We love coming here for a special event or last minute.
Everyone we have brought to Lula's have loved the food and all! Anthony and Lula are the best. Highly recommend Sweet Lula's!
Food was great. Waitress was very friendly and timely. Music selection was also nice.
Service was warm and attentive but the food was disappointing.
Fish and shrimp entree was overcooked so too dry to be yummy. For the price, more attention should have been paid to preparation.
Dessert was good.
It was for my moms birthday! The waitress was great and the food was delicious
Food is amazing, great quality and very tasty! Shrimp scampi and the Beet salad were phenomenal!
Brunch was delicious. Service was great. Will definitely return.
Always a joy to eat there. Was better prepandemic, but what is not. Glad they have more hours that they are open.
Great food, nice atmosphere, had window seat, is BYOB
Really disappointing dining experience. Went with another couple for the first time. Mahi Mahi was terrible. Overcooked and unseasoned. Neither of us could finish our meals. Coconut curry broth was not a broth at all. More like a small smattering of paste.
Shaved Brussels sprouts salad bland and also unseasoned. I guess the best clue was seeing salt and pepper shakers on the table. Never see that anywhere fine dining.
Essentially overpriced, unflavored and inconsistent food. Sadly, we won’t be back.
Love the ambiance here. It’s always a great date night for me and my husband. The bread pudding is to die for.
I went for Sunday Brunch, the food was excellent, and they give you a wide variety to choose from. Sweet Lula's is also byob so its nice to bring a few bottles of Champagne for mimosa's. The restaurant was quite busy which made the service a bit slower, but we didn't mind at all.
Food was okay! We got the chicken and waffles and strawberry shortcake pancakes. The pancakes were preferred. Crowd was okay earlier in the day, but as the time passed, it got more crowded and the tables, no more than a foot away were filled. Not very comfortable with covid. Definitely not holding to capacity and 6ft rules. Waiter was a little all over the place and it took a while for her to come back once it got crowded but she was friendly and apologized.
We love everything about Sweet Lula’s. This was the first time that we have had brunch there and it was absolutely delicious! It was incredibly difficult to choose what to order because all of the selections looked so amazing. We have already planned to go back once a month so we can try everything!
the wait staff was amazing and the food was amazing. it’s a cute little BYOB place located in pitman. food was decently priced for a brunch but DEFFF would recommend
We went there for Easter. There were about two other families in the restaurant at the time. Service was slow. Food was OK.
