Our party of four ate lunch their this afternoon. Three of ordered the shrimp & grits and my wife ordered the Crab Cake Sandwhich. Absolutely outstanding!!! If you have a flair for the spicy side or love it New Orleans style, recommend asking them to "add a little heat". Highly recommend their Banana Brulee French Toast for Sunday Brunch as... More

My husband and I ate here on a Saturday evening and sat outside. There was nice classic rock music playing, the server was fantastic and the food was so good you can hurt yourself by eating too much! My shrimp and grits were the best I've ever had - I was unsure about ordering them, because the grits are served... More

My husband had visited during a business trip and was anxious to return and share the experience of this funky little restaurant with me. All the menu items were prepared to order and delicious. We chose the classic shrimp and grits as well as a half-order of the Mac & Cheese. The Mac & Cheese was a divine variation including... More

Family owned..Live in the house on the property. Menu well rounded. Service perfect. Tables close enough to one another which offers opportunity to talk with strangers. Would go back another time. Fun!

Stopped in with friends at the recommendation of a local. Sadly we were a bit disappointed. The ambience was great and typical of what you'd expect in the area. Among the four of us we had the fish tacos and po boys. The po boys were quite good actually but the fish tacos were bland. Considering the prices of expect... More

Husband and I had dinner Friday night at Lulu's because I read about the restaurant in the Trip Advisor reviews. Unfortunately, we didn't make a reservation and almost didn't get to eat there (because it would have been too cold for me to eat outside). But the hostess misread the time and realized they had room for us to eat... More

We've been vacationing here for eleven years and haven't been there yet this visit. Everything is fresh from this kitchen and perfect every time. We will return this visit for sure.

This place would rate five stars easy except that we were eaten up with bites: mosquitos, no-see-ums, fleas (there were several animals in the outdoor area where we ate), or a combination of all three. The servers were great, the food was great, but after our dinner, I scratched for days! Too bad.

We visited for dinner and had a salad and the shrimp and grits. Wonderful! The small restaurant is cozy and the out-door seating in the courtyard comfortable. We have eaten there several times and always found the food to be excellent.

Wow this place is a gem in historical downtown Fernandina! We genuinely loved the fried oysters with creamy horseradish sauce, but honestly the sauce was not necessary as the flavour and tender juicy oysters were stand-alone!!! I selected Shrimp and Grits, and the delicious cream texture sauce the strimp were bathed in was very delightful without being heavy and not... More
