Maybe they just were too busy, or just training new people. It did not go well from the beginning. It was busy and noisy. We were seated at a dirty table, then we had to get up while they cleaned and set it. We waited...More

Wonderful find in downtown. My wife and I were staying overnight in town and wanted to eat local. Great dinner for both of us. I had the ribeye, my wife the salmon. Both excellently prepared. Would recommend this restaurant. Downtown has really improved also.

Hubby and I rode the motorcycle down and stopped for a late lunch. He got the philly cheesesteak which was very good and ample serving size. I went for lighter faire and got the tomato wedge salad. Perfect size without being too much. Everything fresh....More

Too pricey for what they are, they think they are some elite place to eat but someone needs to set them straight. Food is good but not the price. Paid $10 for a glass of wine with hardly any wine in it. The place is...More

This isn't your every day steak shop. This is the place you go when you want to dress up just a bit, or are looking to impress your date or business associate.

Love the vibe of course! Had another great meal at Lulu’s. Always a treat! I had the special halibut filet and of course inhaled the tuna tartar app and crispy shrimp. Such a great place!

Excellent dumplings, slaw, burgers, garlic mash and short ribs in season. Lively atmosphere (can be on the loud side), but definitely a local favorite.

Had lunch there several weeks ago. Ordered the chicken salad sandwich which came with slaw. Chicken salad was unbelievably bland and tasted 2 days old. Slaw ok. What a shame....$15 (including T&T) down the drain.

I’m so sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy your sandwich, I am really hoping you stop in again and give anouther menu item a try! Would love to have you.

The mushroom pasta seemed to be the only vegetarian option on the entree list, so I opted for that. Usually I’m turned off by cream sauces, but this one was not thick or overpowering. Waitress was very friendly too.

I wish we did but we are a small 48 seat restaurant so we are always willing to discuss a restaurant buyout but we don't have any private allocated space. Please feel free to contact us if you want to discuss.

Weeknights tend to be more quiet, as for table 35 when making reservations, its intimate and quiet. Look forward to celebrating with you!

No dress code that I'm aware of. Shoes and shirts as any restaurant that you go into.
