    I agree with the earlier review that celiacs need to be careful. Restaurant does not have a dedicated g-free fryer, though the menu states they can prepare fried foods with gluten-free rice flour. My daughter with celiac ordered just a side of fries (this usually works out ok) but when they arrived, they clearly had batter from other fried items attached. She didn't eat the fries. There are salads one could order, so I can't say they don't have anything g-free. Just don't be taken in by the menu statements about g-free. The flour might be GF, but without a dedicated fryer, it really doesn't matter

  • Lulu's at Homeport Marina

    We stopped here on Easter Sunday afternoon around 3:30 as we got into town. We chose Lulu's because their cheeseburger was recommended on "Find Me Gluten Free." (One of my daughters has celiac disease.) While the cheeseburger was good, the atmosphere was so loud and imposing that the experience was miserable. When we stepped out of the car, I could plainly hear the lone singer/guitarist (who was indoors). The entertainer was mediocre, offering more volume than talent, though he wasn't awful. I wanted to leave then, but we were very hungry and opted for convenience over comfort. Sitting indoors was even worse. There was no place to escape the volume of the singer. Conversation was all but impossible. Thankfully, after about 20-30 minutes, the singer's shift ended. The food was pretty good. I had the fried shrimp Caesar salad. It was good, though not the best I've ever had. My daughter enjoyed her cheeseburger, though she didn't enjoy the setting. To Lulu's credit, I agree that the restaurant is "gluten-free friendly." Bottom line: if you enjoy having conversation during your meal, I'd recommend that you go somewhere else. The food itself is pretty good, but there are plenty of other great restaurants in Gulf Shores.

    My 13-year-old celiac daughter loves this place. I do, too. Interestingly, we love the filet mignon, even though fish is the main feature of the restaurant. In my opinion, it is every bit as good as that of Ruth's Chris. Exceptional quality, cooked to perfection, and for significantly less cost. The g-free desserts are outstanding. Highly recommend.

    EEIC offers g-free cupcakes, macaroons, cookies, and cakes in addition to Paleo items and standard wheat flour treats and cakes. The gluten-free cupcakes and macaroons are the best I've ever had. And, EEIC has a variety of favors that are constantly changing. They love suggestions of flavor ideas. Well worth the trip.
