Alabama’s Gulf Coast is seafood paradise! I found myself indulging in fresh shrimp over and over. A visit to Lucy Buffett’s Lulu’s (200 East 25th Avenue) in Gulf Shores, Alabama did not disappoint. I arrived from the South on Highway 59 and saw Lulu’s as I crossed the bridge. Not knowing the exact location, it was a good guess. Lulu’s is a gem that is “hidden” from the main drag. From the service, food and atmosphere, this restaurant had it all.
I visited in December and overall things in this area of the country are pretty quiet. I arrived for a late lunch and found several empty tables and was seated right away. Now, during the busy time, from March through September, the wait staff told me that people will wait 2-3 hours for a table. I learned this before I had even ordered my food, which told me that I was in for a real treat. I was seated at a table with a view of the Intracoastal Waterway and was fascinated with the fishing boats that cruised by.
From the special events to live music, this is a happening place! Lucy Buffett’s Lulu’s in Gulf Shores, Alabama is a destination restaurant. Fun memorabilia is available for purchase featuring t-shirts, Jimmy Buffett cd’s and much more! And the food, let me share my amazing meal with you!
The appetizers were numerous! The smoked tuna dip was AMAZING! If you like tuna, this is a must when you dine at Lulu’s!
And just in case you are wondering what foods Lucy Buffett’s Lulu’s offers, check this out! I can speak from experience, you will not find a food on here that is not cooked to perfection!
From the fresh, Gulf Fried Shrimp to the Fried Green Tomatoes (a first for me) every single dish rocked! How’s this for fresh food?
Another local favorite is the L.A. (Lower Alabama) Caviar. I quickly learned L.A. does not stand for Los Angeles while visiting the Gulf Shores of Alabama.
The staff was super friendly and made sure that patrons were enjoying their meals. It was quite evident that the folks sitting near me were enjoying their food as there was not a lot of talking going on. If you head on up to one of the bar areas, you will be greeted by friendly faces!
And then there was dessert! I was so full, but I found out that the amazing service staff at Lucy Buffett’s Lulu’s will gladly package your desserts to go! This bread pudding was amazing! The Key Lime Pie was also tempting, but I knew I only had room for so much, as I was stuffed.
If a visit to Gulf Shores, Alabama is on your list ( if not, I highly recommend it) you need to dine at Lucy Buffett’s Lulu’s. You will not regret it. From the fresh, hot food, to the warm, friendly atmosphere, this is a win, win for your whole family!
