A lover of New Orleans and fine Cajun Cuisine I fell in love with their rendition of Shrimp and Grits. Very savory creamy cajun style sauce with a real grit cake in the center. Unlike othet dishes where the grits over run the plate and soften the flavor , this version was amazingly pleasing. Shrimp , Cherry tomatoes , chorizo... More

Lu Lu's is a little hard to find because it is set back off the street, especially at night. We had a reservation for 7:30pm, but the event at Fort Clinch was canceled so we called to see if we could get a table for 6 at 5:30. They were very accommodating.We were seated and service was very good. We... More

We visited lulu's one night and was told that the fryer was broken and we would not be able to have anything fried, which precluded ordering the shrimp and grits (a signature dish). We returned the next night and asked if the fryer was working. The owner wheeled around to question us about the innocent inquiry. He angrily asked where... More

After reading others reviews I was really looking forward to going to LuLu's. The location is off the street behind the Thompson House. There is a nice garden area with several patio tables. Inside dining room is very small with about 7 or 8 tables in a tight area. The decor is very nice. Now for the food. They normally... More

We're locals and decided to celebrate the holidays with friends at the Feast of Seven Fishes and were just delighted with the entire meal. When the staff brought out each course, it felt like delivering a beautifully wrapped gift. All of us were overwhelmed with the creativity, flavors, and mostly, the hard work, warmth and generosity of the staff. Thank... More

This little gem offers first quality food and is a terrific value. The shrimp and grits are the best ever. The grilled grouper sandwich is delicious and cooked to perfection every time. Fried oysters are absolutely the best on the island. Haven't tried too much else on the menu because we can't resist ordering our favorites but I suspect this... More

Finally the shrimp and grits , wow, I have had this dish many places but lulu's will top my list. Spicy and sweet at... More

Quaint atmosphere, friendly service, marvelous menu offerings, and tasty food. Whether sea food, or meat dishes all were terrific. Rock shrimp w/ grits was delicious, and all locally caught fish made variously with interesting go alongs were spectacular.
