This was one of the most annoying experiences we have ever had eating out. Food was disappointing and the service was the worst ever. Kerlyn was our server and truly needs to find another job. After being seated we sat so long without being acknowledged we were just about to get up and leave when she came over. Slowest service... More

I always like to find a spot where the locals hang out and this is one of those. Plus, it was Sunday during football season so the atmosphere was fabulous (maybe that's because my team won in overtime?). My food was good and the menu had a lot to offer. Service was fast and attentive too. Highly recommend.

This place has a party atmosphere but even if you aren't looking for a party - the food is good. We were just looking for a quick dinner and our Fish and Chips and Turkey Burger were just the ticket. Plenty of food and very tasty. Not fancy but clean and very good.

The menu here is so varied and unusual which I loved. Everything from burgers to shrimp to alligator tail! Yes - alligator tail!! When I saw that, i HAD to try it as I love being adventurous with food. It was like nothing I've eaten before but tasty nonetheless. There's a great view of the ocean, attentive and friendly staff...

Do a Sunday Brunch here! It is a GREAT view of the water-way and has 4+ star food. Seafood buffet in season is great! Enjoy the outside seating!

We were in town for a birthday and unfortunately decided on this place. We were having a great time even though the staff didn't want to serve. It was the Saturday before Halloween and all the staff were more interested in what they were wearing than doing their job. We sat at the bar and had a couple of appetizers... More

I love Lulu"s on the beach. They have a great 2 for 1 happy hour and the bar tenders don't skimp on the alcohol. After a few drinks you may get hungry. I enjoy their wings and their salads. My mother sent her calamari back. Not sure why. However, the view is gorgeous. This restaurant is located in Beach Place... More

We love that you're a fan, Asialyn! We also try not to take our beachfront view for granted. Hopefully your Mom was able to find something else she liked with us -usually our Calamari is a go-to appetizer and loved by many. We welcome both back again for more good times here at Lulu's! More

Was so good that we not only went here once but twice. Awesome food, great drink specials and what better way to enjoy it than to listen to the waves crashing on the beach.

Lively, fun place for lunch or dinner. Upper level with views of the ocean across the street. Reasonable food, appetizers, fish prices. Great place if you don't want to spend a bundle at one of the fine dining restaurants.
