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.

Went b/c of TA reviews. Said open at 11:00. Staff reported repeated attempts to correct it w TA to no avail. So-thought i'd throw that out there. No worries. Our awesome waitress Jenna brought us menus and let me order a wine while sitting in their sunny, quirky patio. At 11:30 ish- Ordered multiple small dishes b/c everything looked great.... More

Sat outside for a weekday business lunch. Great atmosphere and excellent casual cuisine. My favorite was the fried oysters. We ordered a second order. I had the fried shrimp basket which was a generous portion and included delicious hush puppies. My associate had the crab cake sandwich which was full of crab with little to no filler. Outside they were... More

Joined a group of business colleagues for dinner in their outdoor patio. Everyone at our table loved their entrees. Service was smooth and professional. The crab cake is very generous in size and is one of the best I have ever tasted. We all left satisfied. Wish I lived closer.

We enjoyed a group dinner at LuLu's this past week. The food was awesome and everyone enjoyed the eclectic atmosphere where we sat outside. The staff were very accommodating and got us everything we needed very quickly. We were not impressed by the manager/owner as he yelled at his staff in front of guests though. This was uncalled for as... More

This is a small, wonderful place with excellent food that appeared to be cooked to order. I would definitely go back if I were in Fernandina Beach again. The service was excellent as well. And they had a reasonably good wine list. There was seating inside which was were I ate but they also had lovely outside tables which filled... More

We went to LuLu's twice during our stay on Amelia Island. It is the only restaurant we went back to. Why ? It's fabulous. One reason I suppose is that the owner was always there. Nothing like hands on ownership. The food is well presented and prepared. The calamari was the best I ever had, and the shrimp and grits... More

My husband and I had a couple of hours to explore the quaint historic district. Stopped by the visitor center and followed the recommendations. LuLu's was packed! We got a table right away with a warning they were super busy and apologized for the delay in service. It was a bit slow but with the warning we were fine enjoying... More

Get some, Ask for Lori. Everything I've ever eaten at LuLu's has been so good I would have eaten there every day if I could.
