    Lulu's never disappoints. Separate gf menu, and they do it right. Guac with the 'allergy chips' so yummy. I had the tacos with the blackened mahi this time. You know you won't be glutened at Lulu's.

    Separate gluten free menu. The manager takes and delivers your order. They use a totally separate kitchen so no cross contamination. Delicious food and wonderful service and I never get ill there

    This was one of the best restuarants I've ever been to that treated food allergies so seriously. There were separate menus according to your food allergy and the manager came to our table and took my husband's GF order separately. The food was delicious and we felt very safe eating here. Will most definitely come here again next time we're in the Gulf Shores area!

    Awesome place!! Worth the long wait!! They offer a large gluten free menu, a manager takes your allergy sensitive orders, separate kitchen area for gluten free food prep, and the manager brings the food to your table when it is ready. They really understand avoiding cross contamination. Will definitely recommend to others!

    We ate a late lunch here yesterday. They do have a allergy menu. We still waited a while to get seated. Once seated the server noticed our allergy menu on the table and said he would have to go get the manager. The manager arrived and took our order. The manager is also the one that brought our order and came back again and checked on us during the meal. My daughter had the gf mahi mahi basket with rice, I had the GF tacos with Mahi Mahi and my husband had the GF burger. The tacos were wonderful, the bun on the burger was wonderfully toasted but the burger was a little dry. My daughter's Mahi Mahi basket was good as well. We will definitely be back. Great atmosphere. My only issue is that smoking is allowed outside around the patio and the garage doors were closed because it was cool weather so the smoke might really be a problem during the summer. I have uploaded some pictures as well.

    My daughter and I both have Celiac. She had grilled chicken tacos and I had the fish. Both had corn chips and salsa. Very tasty and we did not get sick. They even managed, after some research, to make me a gluten free Bushwhacker which was amazing!

    Best GF restaurant I've been to, and I eat out a LOT. I have celiac disease, and had zero issues here. The food is great, but if I could give more than 5 stars I would because of how they handle allergies here. The manager takes your order if you tell them you have issues, takes it to the kitchen manager who preps your food himself in a dedicated area, and pages the manager to bring it out. Also, they make a seriously awesome gluten free bloody mary.

    This is by far the best place for gluten free! Not only was the food good, but they have a dedicated kitchen for gluten free/food allergies! As others mentioned, the manager takes your order and only certain servers can deliver your food. They go way out of their way to avoid cross-contamination. So impressed!!

    The menu is awesome! It has many choices and they are very careful about avoiding cross contamination. A manager takes your order and they deliver your food separate from the other people that are not gf. I was able to eat without wondering if I will get "gluten-ed".

    We ate at lulu's last fall and had a manager take care of my gluten free needs. We ate there Monday night may 16th and ate the rear bar. They provided a gluten free menu but the waitress took the order and someone else brought the order with every else's. Makes me wonder if it was gluten free after all. They also said they did not have a gluten free tequila for margaritas. Different experience than last visit.

    Dedicated gluten-free (and other allergens) menu. My son with Celiac got the grilled shrimp & fish basket with rice and loved it! A manager comes to take the GF order, it's prepared in a separate section of the kitchen, then brought out by the manager. Great place with great food & atmosphere.

    First off, very good food, courteous service, and live music. In addition to their regular menu, The restaurant also has an "allergy" menu, the first two pages of which were the GF options. After I requested it, a second staff member -- either a chef or manager, not sure which -- who was clearly knowledgeable about celiac requirements, came to my table to assist with my order. They do have a dedicated kitchen area, and they will caution you about foods where there is a risk of contamination.

    Amazing experience. They really know about food allergies and how to handle them. Upon notifying your server that you have an allergy, it's in their policy that the manager takes your order to ensure your safety. It's a little loud on live music night, but the restaurant has a fun, friendly atmosphere great for families.

Aside from the great gfree service, this place is so fun! A sand pit for the kids, water toys, all outdoor seating, and live music. We had a blast!!! I would absolutely come back.

    Outstanding! Fantastic food and service. I wish all restaurants handled gluten free and good allergies as well as LuLu's. Highly recommend LuLu's! We have two Celiacs and one with numerous anaphylactic food allergies in our family. Eating out is extremely difficult for us. LuLu's is great. They have an allergy menu which has GF pages and then the top 8 allergens on separate pages. The server explained that a manager had to take our order. The manager explained that they have a dedicated allergy grill and dedicated chef to handle the allergy orders. All allergy orders are delivered by the manager. The manager made my anaphylactic child feel safe and even carried her order separately to the table to avoid contamination risks. All of our orders were perfect. The kids GF fish is a big portion and tastes great! The location is a fun beach atmosphere restaurant. Live music, sand zone, and plenty of activities for everyone to relax and have great meal.

    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.

    Loved our LuLu's experience! The waitstaff had a protocol and a chain of command that included the manager personally taking my son's order. They had a lovely gluten free menu and my son really enjoyed the food. A lot of care was taken to protect him and we had a great experience because of it.
