Default Lulu's Restaurant in Gulf Shores

Lulu has a famous brother......anybody know who this might be? I've been to the reataurant once and for the life of me, I can't remember! It's driving me crazy!

So was it good? I wonder if the Buffet fam has foodie genes. I drug d/h over to Cheeseburger in Paradise Thursday to get him in the mood for our cruise in a mere 55 day (YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS)!I could just die for the St. Barts yardbird and they have brocolli that is soooo good you forget it's actually good for you

It's a romantic getaway with the kids as usual lol! Going on the Triumph to Half Moon Cay, San Juan, St. Thomas and Grand Turk. Can't leave the lil ones behind. They enjoy it as much as we do.
Next time I am down that way, we'll have to check out LuLu's sound yummy

Well Beenie, I need a full report when you get back because I hope to visit a few of those ports!

Melody, the crowds at Lulu's are enormous. If you show up at 6:00PM for dinner you may get in around 8:00 PM.

Be aware if you plan on going there.

Regards,
Ben

Thanks Ben,

The last time we went, I think we had to wait 20- 30 minutes max. Does it get better as the night goes on?

it's funny how different coutries and cultures are..In Santorini Greece the early bird specials start at 1100 pm and the main dining time at around midnight on weekends during the summer

show up at a popular local cafe at around 7 pm and it will be empty (only the American tourist do that)...In America it will be packed with a waiting time of over an hour

I LOVE Santorini and Venice

Venice,

I can remember living in India at the tender age of 9. We quickly learned that afternoon tea WAS NOT a prissy, snobby thing. It was a necessity! You should never skip afternoon tea when dinner service does not BEGIN until after 9:00 PM.....even on school nights! We lived there for 2 years. We came back to the South with British accents and a great tan! It took us months to realize that we were never going to have afternoon tea on a regular basis! We quickly lost the tan and the British accents, but I still remember afternoon tea....cucumber sandwiches, scones and the most GOD-AWFUL Water Buffalo milk you ever tasted! The milk kinda grew on you after a few months.....a musky sweet taste. I don't really want anymore of that milk or MANGO. I had my lifetime share of mango during my stay there.
