Celiac and allergy friendly — one of our new favorite restaurants! Jerk chicken and crabby nachos were awesome!!
Ate here twice in 3 days. That should say enough. They aren't the fastest, but 1) they are super popular and 2) I think they tend to run more on "island time," at least that's the feel of this place. You have to ask for a GF menu from your waiter, but there are lots of options, including appetizers. They won't let your regular waiter take your GF order - they call out a supervisor who takes the order, sees it through prep, and brings it out to you. Both times they asked if I ate GF due to allergy / Celiac or dietary preference. Some say it shouldn't matter but I personally appreciate them taking the time to know I really need it GF. I'd eat here plenty more times. 3 kids, not GF, and 2 adults GF had no trouble finding good meals. Side note, if you're here during typical eating hours, be sure to reserve a time or to plan to spend time browsing Barefoot Landing. We had a 2 hour wait today! They'll take your picture and offer you two prints for $20. We bought them both times. Lol. Waitress day 1 was Kaila. Water today is Michael. Both were great!
Very celiac friendly! The manager assisted our waitress with my gluten free order and brought it to me from the kitchen!! A must visit in NMB for celiac folks!!
This restaurant is a Celiac’s dream! The biggest allergy friendly menu I have ever seen. The manager came out to take my daughters food order and made sure to explain to us they have a separate cooking area. Food was yummy, service was excellent, and daughter enjoyed a great meal on vacation.
amazing food and service! manager came to take the order to ensure there was no cross contamination. highly recommend!
The allergy menu is great. There are several options for a GF guest. The manager takes your order to be sure it is correct. There is a dedicated kitchen for all allergies. The kitchen and utensils are cleaned after each each meal is prepared.
The managers were very knowledgeable, kind, and bring all allergen menu orders out personally. The gluten free menu is extensive including nachos, tacos, and sandwiches. Wonderful experience & very celiac friendly. 👍🏻
This place was amazing. We had someone with Celiacs and someone with a dairy allergy. Both were taken care of. We told the server that we had allergies and they went and got their supervisor to explain to us their kitchen setup. They have a dedicated are of the kitchen and even a dedicated cook that prepares any allergen sensitive meals. They make sure to change gloves and cookware. Both meals were fantastic and no one got sick
The manager came to the table stated they have a dedicated chef and dedicated section of the kitchen and cooking tools for allergies. The manager takes your order to make sure it’s correct. The chef checks the food and the manager double checks it. They were amazing and accommodating. There is a lot on the menu for allergies. super impressed.
Manger comes to table and takes order to make sure there are no issues. They have a dedicated kitchen space to make sure no cross contamination. Lots of options on gluten free menu, always disappointed though when the fries aren't gluten free. Everyone enjoyed their food and kids loved the play area (bring a change of clothes or swim suit - there is water)
Big gluten free menu with loads of options! I had the queso dip with chips and pork tacos. The manager came out to take my order and delivered my food to the table. There is also a fun play area for kids.
I ordered the chicken tacos off of the gluten-free menu and place my order with a manager. The manager was very friendly and brought my food to the table herself. I tested the corn tortillas with my Nima sensor and it came back gluten found. I spoke with the server and they had already taken the entree off of the bill because they had burned the corn tortillas twice and had some technical difficulties in the kitchen. It was a bummer I could not get a safe meal here because I had heard so many great reviews about how Celiac friendly they were. We were there as soon as the restaurant open so it could not be blamed on a busy kitchen.
The level of care and attention to allergies gets 10 stars from me. Dedicated menu and a manager takes and delivers your order. The environment is a plus, too. Fun place with live music, waterside bars. The food is good. Not amazing or anything super memorable, but solid. It’s a great option for me still because gluten free restaurants in Destin are still hard to come by.
Amazing food and atmosphere. The staff is knowledgeable about GF, they have a manager take and bring the order. We will visit LuLu’s anytime we are near one. I had GF crab melt nachos, my daughter had GF jerk chicken nachos and my husband had a GF catch of the day fish sandwich. All of it was delicious! I think it was the best GF food we’ve had in a restaurant. Completely Celiac Friendly
The food was delicious! My husband and I shared a cheeseburger with veggies and grilled shrimp. The seasoning on everything was so good and the burger bun was somehow way better than the store Udi buns (I asked and it’s a slightly different version than what Udi sells in stores). I have CD and was impressed with their process. The manager handled our order from start to finish and was great. My husband who does not have CD thought it was all amazing as well and I did not get sick so very happy with experience.
Has an allergen menu. GF buns available. Ordered a grilled fish sandwich on a gluten-free bun and fries and had no reaction. I also have issues with garlic/onion, so I have to be careful with cross contamination for seasoning. I was able to get the fix seasoned with just salt and pepper.
As a person with celiacs this place was amazing! The have an entirely separate kitchen where they cook the food for people who have food allergy needs. The manager comes over to take all special orders and ensures that everything will be Gluten free. They have good food, a great atmosphere, and this was probably the safest restaurant I have ever eaten at.
Fabulous experience! My server sent her manager to take my order when she found out that I was ordering GF because of an "allergy" and I was assured that 1/2 of their kitchen was dedicated to allergen cooking, their menu was great! GF bun for my pulled pork sandwich and no reaction later in the day.
WOW!! Blown away by the allergy menu ! One of the best gluten free dining experiences we have had in a restaurant! There is a crew supervisor who comes over to deliver the food made in the "allergy kitchen" ... great attention to detail and they have a separate cooking area for gluten free foods. Huge number of foods on the menu to choose from! They bring you a separate "allergy menu". I cannot say enough nice things!! Highly recommend!
this is my favorite restaurant, because of how conscientious they are with food allergies. they have an allergy menu for gluten, dairy, shellfish, eggs, etc... the manager comes out and takes your order separately from your server and also brings it out to you. outstanding service, great food and drinks, lovely atmosphere.
They have manager come out to take your order special and are very knowledgeable regarding allergens, even MSG! They cook food in a dedicated area as well! Great view and sandy area with toys for kids to play in. Great atmosphere, but the music wasn't my taste. (Hillbilly country). Highly recommend to anyone needing to avoid any allergens! Prices could improve though. $90+ for 6 people.
Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable on food allergies. They have several "allergy menus". Manager comes to take the order for people with allergies. He explained they are very careful with food allergies. Ordered a Burger with GF bun. The manager informed us the French fries are preseasoned and may have gluten in it so he let us pick a different side. Picked the guacamole and chips. It was all delicious.
Absolutely love it! They are extremely cautious and listen to your every need. The food is excellent and they take allergies very seriously. We vacation in Destin for this reason. I can't say enough about Lulus. It's our #1 go to restaurant and I have never had any issue.
I was so happy the staff is well informed about food allergies! The manager takes your order to make sure everything's correct. I had the Mahi tacos, which were delicious! The corn chips that came with it though, tasted like they needed to change the fryer oil. And they could have had more gf beer options or hard ciders. Otherwise they would've gotten 5 stars.
Oh my gosh, run, don't walk there! Best GF burger I've ever had. Best allergen friendly service I've EVER received. Managers come over personally to take your order and the GF options are great! I have celiac and felt completely confident in their food and did not feel sick one bit! I'll be back again!
Went twice in two days because they did a great GF plus really good good. The server told me the manager has to be there to take the GF order and wrote the order on a special orange form. I did not have any issues getting sick and did not feel that I really had to worry. The blackened fish was super!
I had high hopes from all the great reviews, but I ended up having a reaction before I finished my entree. While the manager did come talk to us, it seemed like our waitress was him do it more as a formality as she took my order then the manager followed behind us listening to us repeat them. The waitress seemed visibly unhappy to wait on us repeating the order and her having to stand around while we did. While the entree was brought out by the manager, the chips and queso was not and it was after finishing some of that that I began to have trouble breathing, felt nauseated, etc. A few red flags I ignored and paid the price for it. I say if your waitstaff/manager isn't paying you much attention or don't seem to be taking your GF needs seriously ask to sit somewhere else as I feel this reaction may have been an isolated incident at this Lulu's location.
