Wonderful place, great atmosphere, very spacious. Will not disappoint you. Highly recommended...
Incredible experience. The food was orgasmic, the Margarita was amazing. Stuffed Mushrooms and Fire Roasted Chicken was amazing! The expression Ice Cream, put an exclamation at the end of an awesome evening! Thank you!
Enjoyed everything we ordered. Alligator hush puppies were large, jalapeno corn muffins were good and the best was the charbroiled oysters, also enjoyed the Gouda grouper and Ulele Burger. Wedding beer was a favorite and all cocktails were delicious. Courtney provided us with stellar service. We can't wait to return.
Safe, good COVID-19 protocols. Service good, food excellent!
Food was delicious, service was excellent. We ate oysters, scallops, calamari, meatloaf, flank steak and alligator hush puppies, everything was beyond expectations, will definitely come back.
Loved it! Great place for an anniversary
Still or #1 favorite place! But service was adequate at best on latest visit even after notifying them we were celebrating our best friend's retirement. We waited for drinks and were never offered another. Had to ask for coffee, it was warm at best and no refills. Will give them a pass because this is not the norm, let's hope!
We had a lovely luncheon at Uleles. Service was very good , food was excellent, and the safety precautions put into place was as good as it gets.
Delicious food, great service. I think everyone should go there at least once
Discovered Ulele's for the first time with business associates who eat there a lot, really enjoyed our experience. I would recommend going with the Wet aged rib eye over the flank steak and definitely choose the mashed potatoes, the best I've ever had! Will certainly be eating here again.
Service was great and the food was delicious
Elite restaurant. I will absolutely be back. I recommend everyone go enjoy this delightful restaurant.
Excellent service and great meal! Ulele also did a great job with social distancing.
Great food and our Server "Natalie". Was vin outstanding.
Ulele is a great place to meet for lunch, dinner, or drinks. We had a fabulous lunch and both entrees were amazing and the service was outstanding. The oysters were the best I've had in awhile and the ambiance was great for a light lunch and lunch date.
Great Food, Great Customer Service!
Tim Shackton the brewmaster is AWESOME 👏
Ulele ice cream is Yummy 😋
My date and I had an AMAZING time at Ulele. I will definitely be back here soon!!!
Jacklyn was incredible! Me and my boyfriend sat outside, what a perfect area that is ! She was super informative, suggestive and truly loves what she does. It shows through her service! We had cocktails and bought a bottle of wine which they have a great selection at a great cost! Started with apps and locks the snapper dish and seafood risotto ! Thanks again Jackie for a great time and your lovely personality! Good luck to you ! And thanks Ulele for a wonderful atmosphere, will totally return ! -Haley and zac!
Always an enjoyable unique experience. Beautifully done inside and out.
We really liked dining here. However our bill did seem a little high compared to similar style of restaurants.
Had a very enjoyable lunch with my daughter & friends. Good food & service. Can’t ask for more!
The staff was nice enough to give my puppy water and even took a picture with us!
What an amazing experience! Went here for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner and it was above and beyond our expectations. Our waiter was the best, very attentive and helped me even decorate the surprise cake a brought. The food was out of this world. Everyone picked something different and we just couldn’t stop talking about how great everything tastes. I highly recommend going here for any occasion.
Food is incredible. Everything is so fresh! Atmosphere is fun and location is beautiful. Overall a great experience!
Amazing experience as always!
It was our anniversary and we were able to get a specific table we asked for. Food and service was excellent.
Such a great date afternoon. Drinks and food was outstanding. Our server was awesome!!
Never disappoints. We always come to Ulele when we want a good meal.
Eat at Ulele's often. Always a great experience.
Great place to dine always impecable.
Ulele was great all around at our visit! We had a party of 8 and requested outdoor seating celebrating two birthdays. All the food was accurate, warm, and delicious! The seafood risotto, steak chimmachurri, calamari, and espresso ice cream were our favorites. Service was friendly and quick and food prices were very reasonable. Can’t wait to return and highly recommended.
Fabulous service, great food and amazing scenery
Great food. Good service. Thoughtful COVID procedures. The oysters are massive! Very good cocktails too!
Nice quiet atmosphere at 4:00 PM on a Thursday. Food was delicious as always.
Great place to eat and relax. No rush. Food was outstanding. The pompano is my favorite dish and the red snapper is great also. Lives up to The Columbia's reputation. Covid-19 safe. Everything sanitized, all employees wear masks.
Honestly couldn’t expect anything better. The food was so good, but the service managed to stand out ahead of it. I think our server was Laura and she was so kind. Can’t wait to come back.
I truly enjoyed the food, the service and the ambiance was AMAZING. Our waiter Alex was very helpful and knowledgeable of the food on the menu.
Great experience. Waitress was very good. Prices were a bit high. The restaurant was almost completely empty, when they decided to sit a party next to us. That was disappointing, since places so be trying to promote social distancing as much as possible. There were at least ten other tables open, just in my line of vision. Otherwise, can’t complain! They made a plate of just veggies taste delicious . Not easy to do!
