Okay straight up, not cheap. if you don't drink alcohol you can definitely do better on the bill; but the food is so good as to say, worth it. Yummy. Great fresh well-cooked seafood. Seafood to die for. I haven't done the lobsters yet but they look as good as the ones I had many times in Newport RI, closer to the home of those lobsters.
Anyway, beyond the good, but pricey drinks and great food.. if the staff (well one or two) are a little edgy/ grouchy, ignore it..or complain (yeah that will make them happier) Or better yet, tip the young nice gal who was sweeping up a broken glass, instead! Make a point. Regardless, they aren;' all grouchy, and the food is so darn good I don't even care, be grouchy. They have music there some nights and are near Cafe Fiore if you need MORE music or dancing before or after. Did I say great food?

We went up on a Sunday not knowing it was Happy Hour all day! Oyster, mussels and Bloody Mary's were fantastic! Definitely going back!!!

The best thing about Lure is the service--it's friendly and efficient, which can't be said for all of the restaurants in the area. Food is also quite good, with a wide variety of seafood choices. Portions are generous--I brought half of my dinner home for another meal. Two members of our party cleaned their plates because they enjoyed their food so much. Go early on the weekend--by the time we left there were tons of people waiting.

Lure has the most varied and original seafood menu I've ever seen. The place was packed. Service was prompt and courteous. We watched a parade of wonderful dishes pass our table that made my mouth water. Our dinner was fantastic. And well worth the price. FIVE STARS!
