Called in for an early lunch and found Lulus to be friendly with great service. We had the crab cake and shrimp remoulade and both were fantastic.

LuLu 's is located in the downtown area. Tiny inside eating area with outside tables. Better make a reservation ! Their famous dish is Shrimp w/ Grits. It was delicious. The Mac n cheese w/ Shrimp was oversized. Small menu but delicious choices

Just off Centre Street, this is a great find. We had a delicious lunch with a glass of beer. Husband loved his fried oysters. We were there on a nice day and sat out in the garden, with funky garden ornaments - very cute. Very responsive and friendly staff. It's a small place so I can see it getting crowded,... More

We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine and several shared small plates for a great lunch on a beautiful spring day. Good service with some delicious and generous sized "small" plates gave us a chance to try shrimp, oysters, fried mozzarella salad, etc. All wonderful!

Such interesting food. A great example of southern fine cuisine based on traditional southern dishes. Small place so reservations a must.

Lulu's is truly a unique place to eat. Of all the great places to eat we ate here 3 times! Great food. Great service. And the cat that wonders around like he owns the joint is pretty cool too.

We really liked the crab cakes. They were good quality. The Cuban used very spicy mustard, and I missed the traditional yellow mustard. I would go back to this restaurant if in the area again.

We got a reservation with no trouble. The weather was wonderful that day and eating outdoors would have been no problem. There is twice as much outdoor seating as inside. The food was very good but the service was slow, unless they happpened to be short of staff that day.
