I had the Muenster chicken. It was not bad but the best part was the side dishes. The flourless chocolate cake was not worth eating. My dining companions were also not impressed with their dinners. Beer was good.

The location of Ulele is stellar! It sits right at the water park and in front of the river walk. The view of downtown matches the amazing taste of the food, service and ambience. I recommend the delicious martinis! A +

Terrific atmosphere inside and outside overlooking the riverwalk.Everything is terrific, the salads, seafood, and chili. The roasted oysters were amazing. The wine menu was excellent along with the mixed drinks. I am never disappointed.

Had a great meal with great service. The huge shank and shrimp had excellent flavors. We opted for upstairs patio seating so it was a bit more quiet.

Waited an hour and half for a table. We were seated outside. It began to rain. There was no cover or umbrella at our table. Waited 10 minutes before our waiter arrived. Waiter stated “if you don’t have a reservation you can’t have an umbrella.”...More

Depends on weather. It is probably a 15 minute walk. I would not want to walk on a day with a high chance of rain (usually in the summer) or on a very hot day especially if I was dressed up for a show. Very doable in the... More
