Meet Jimmy Buffet's Sister - Lulu!

Not just a restaurant, but an experience....LuLu's at Homeport was a must-visit place while in Gulf Shores.  Even in the off-season we had a great time!

We enjoyed blackened Mahi Mahi fish tacos, chicken quesadillas, strawberry daiquiris that were all delicious.  The environment was cheery and fun yet relaxing (sitting right on the water).  We experienced friendly service and it was honestly tough to leave...so we took our time.

Depending on weather, we recommend checking out "The MOUNTAIN OF YOUTH" which is a three-story climbing apparatus for kids of ALL ages. Harnessed in, you can experience the thrill of tightrope walking and climbing, and see LuLu’s from a totally different perspective!  

If you have small children then they'll love the huge sand pits available to play in.

Here's a bit of LuLu's story....
Once upon a time, a Gulf Coast darling, born and raised in one L.A. (Lower Alabama) found herself living in another L.A. (Los Angeles, California). Lucy Buffett had just about enough of the plastic pace of Hollywood and yearned for the sweet comfort of home and a way of life that is more about living life than "lifestyle." As she reached her 40's, the memories of a childhood scented by magnolias in the spring, crab boils in the summer, tire swings, and the glories of Mobile Bay, were calling her back home.

With many failures in her back pocket, but many triumphs in her heart, "LuLu" packed her bags and her cats, Jazz and Whisper, and headed south to parts "known"-- back to the place where her roots had grown.
Anyone who knows LuLu, knows she can COOK! They know she loves life, and not unlike her brother Jimmy, she is a passionate host and entertainer. She found a little dream harbor, and moved into a beautiful spot on Weeks Bay, Alabama, where the original LuLu's Sunset Grill was born. It was a place that Fish River locals quickly called their own place "Where life is good and lunch lasts forever." Read more

We had to bring home some gifts from Lulu's Shop too. A few t-shirts, key chains and home decor items later....we even popped over for a photo in the booth!
