The authentic Gulf Coast cuisine at LuLuâ€™s Destin features favorites from Lucyâ€™s cookbook, “Crazy Sista Cooking Cuisine” and uses locally sourced fresh seafood and ingredients.

Prepared in a separate area of the kitchen, each allergy item is given the utmost attention beginning with a manager personally taking the order at your table.
Creative chef, business woman, author and the original Crazy Sista, Lucy Buffett is more than a sibling of famous troubadour Jimmy; just as her business, LuLuâ€™s, is more than a restaurant. Lucy Buffett combines true Southern coastal graciousness and authenticity with the nerve of a successful entrepreneur. Known as Crazy Sista for good reason, Lucy marches to the beat of her own drum. She can play nice, but only by the rules she has broken, bent, or reinvented.Â
â€śI am passionate about taking care of my customers and we do that by being the absolute best that we can be. Itâ€™s all about excellence and having fun at LuLuâ€™s. But without my great team of employees, Iâ€™m just a woman with an idea. They make it all happen and Iâ€™m humbled that they have taken this journey with me. I know the folks in Destin will not be disappointed,” commented Lucy.
Open 7 days a week, LuLuâ€™s Destin is located at the foot of the Mid-Bay Bridge next to Legendary Marine, 4607 Legendary Marina Drive, Destin, Florida 32541. For further information, visit www.lulubuffett.com or call 850-710-LULU (5858).
