    I went for my birthday twice in a matter of one week. I went first with my ladies and second with my husband. Food was great. Drinks were consistent, service was good and so was the music. Would definitely make this a go to place

    The waiter(Edward) definitely deserves a raise. His service was top notch. From the time we sat down he made sure we never waited or questioned anything about the restaurant. The food came out quick, hot and fresh. The crawfish queso is a must. The entrees and drinks are delectable. Don’t forget to buy a bottle of their house made vodka.

    Lula exceeded all our expectations. The service was exceptional. Our server was familiar with the menu and made excellent recommendations. The noise level was low so we could have a normal conversation. So nice. The food was delicious with good but not huge portions. And the peach pie purse for dessert was to die for!

    Server was fantastic… friendly and helpful even though she was obviously juggling too many tables and making her own drinks because there was no bartender. Shrimp and grits were not good at all… bland grits and fishy tasting shrimp, but the fried chicken sandwich (get it spicy!) was absolutely delish. It had amazing flavor, the bread was a little sweet which was a nice balance to the mild heat from the spicy chicken. Overall, a good basic restaurant but nothing amazing about it.

    Lula is okay. Food had good flavors but the preparation was lacking. Ordered the skirt steak medium, it came well done. Fries were undercooked (some were cold). Haley behind the bar is an incredibly sweet and attentive server, so that was a plus. Overall it was fine, but nothing to write home about.

    We have been to Lula’s multiple times and we love it every time. It’s one of the few places we feel comfortable taking our toddler because they are always so kind and go above and beyond to ensure we have what we need. We would be weekly regulars if we lived close.

    Our service was by far the worst part if the experience. The unlimited vodka bar was always out of supplies and they were slow to replenish. Our waitress was very inattentive and seemed to be overloaded. Some of our dishes were good but mediocre at best. Some were not. Wouldn’t return.
