We took a chance on the bait shack after seeing it was the only place that didn’t have the college party crowd turning it into a club at lunch time. Boy did they deliver. Food was delicious, service was on point, beer was cold, and...More

We visited Lulu's Bait Shack for a double date on 10/7. The bartender on this night at the bar near the bathrooms could really use some retraining on problem handling and solving. My fiancé asked for a half pina colada half rum runner drink, and...More

This place is a great way to get the silly, boozy taste of Ft Lauderdale. The open air restaurant is on the 2nd floor and looks out over the beach. The drinks are fun, fruity, and boozy. (Plus who doesn't want to take home a...More

Thought this restaurant would be just another typical beach restaurant, but we were pleasantly surprised by the food. The first visit we had the conch chowder and the mahi tacos. Both were very good. For dessert the fried oreos sounded too good to pass up....More

Founded on Cajun Cuisine and Mardi Gras morals, Lulu's brings only the best of the bayou to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. We've made our home right in the sand of Beach Place, surrounded by palm trees and ocean views. Our guests can feel the salty breeze and enjoy their cocktail in a coconut as they order from our New Orleans menu selections and Raw Bar. Relax over the weekend by sipping on one of our Famous Fishbowls or come see us during the week and take advantage of our 4-7pm Happy Hour specials.
