Recently our crew took a QUIK TRIP to Lucy Buffett’s LuLu’s in Gulf Shores, Alabama. We were already in town filming at a prominent resort so we decided to see just how much fun we could have at this restaurant owned by Jimmy Buffett’s sister.


First of all, with a quick eye scan of the place, it was clear that it was anything but “just a restaurant.” The dining area is both inside and outside and seems to seat a number higher that I could count off the cuff. The band was playing from the LuLu’s stage (there is live music every single day), people were happy to be there and enjoying fresh seafood along with other culinary treats.

Outside the folks waiting didn’t seem to mind. That may seem odd to you until you realize how Miss Buffett takes care of them. The wait is part of the fun!


There are bars, a sand lot for the kids to play in, a water contraption for kids (fountain of youth), a ropes course (mountain of youth), an arcade, a huge gift shop and games! I think my kids would be disappointed if there wasn’t a wait!

Check out out short video to see all the fun and frolic happening daily at LuLu’s…this will make your day happier and next time you’re in Gulf Shores, you’ll be looking for LuLu’s!
