Lulu's is consistently good. I love their Pasta Salad ala Greque! It is beautifully presented and delicious. They have a large outdoor covered patio where you can dine with your pet. They even provide a water bowl. The service is friendly!

Wonderful food and a good variety. The Wedge salad can feed 2, and the dressing is so tasty! I visited twice during my visit to Sylva.

From certified black angus handcut steaks, to fresh North Carolina seafood, to vegetarian tofu stir-fry, to pasta salad ala greque, Lulu's on Main is known for its out-of-the-ordinary eclectic fare, great service, and consistency, provided in an edgy, retro atmosphere. Embracing its place in the heart of the downtown Sylva, North Carolina since 1989, the restaurant reflects the local atmosphere and welcoming spirit that makes Sylva hum. Chef Devin McCardle was trained in the classic French style at the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont and has over 13 years of varied experience. He has moved all over the country learning different cuisines, and specializes in fresh seafood, farm-to-table items and hormone-free, humanely raised proteins. His attention to fresh, local and imaginative cuisine is inspired, and locals and visitors alike enjoy his take on lunch and dinner. A martini bar inside the restaurant offers mixed drinks as well as beer and wine. In addition to two large dining areas, the outdoor patio is a welcome spot to enjoy downtown Sylva during warmer weather. Learn more about Lulu's on Main.
