Barefoot Landing, a familiar favorite among North Myrtle Beach’s attractions and venues, has some exciting news! A brand-new project is in the works to create a walkable waterfront dining district called Dockside Village, and the first new restaurant to move in will be Lucy Buffett’s Lulu’s. Dockside Village is sure to be a popular destination for North Beach Plantation vacationers next summer.
Dockside Village aims to combine graceful architecture, waterfront views and landscaped commons as a setting for a variety of fine-dining establishments. It is located right along the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway, and the new Lulu’s will be moving into the space between the existing Greg Norman’s Australian Grille and TBonz Gill & Grill.
Lulu’s is an Alabama-based restaurant owned by Lucy Buffett, the sister of famed musician Jimmy Buffett. The new restaurant will mark her third location, and it sounds like it will be an amazing addition to the dining options in Myrtle Beach. Lulu’s is a casual and family-friendly spot known for its “Gumbo Love” and its Southern flair. The Myrtle Beach location will feature signature Lulu’s dishes like the Crazy Sista’s Crab Toast and the Pa-menna Cheeseburger, a burger topped with bacon, pimento cheese and fried green tomatoes!
Lulu’s also offers menus exclusively for people with food allergies, with items that exclude common allergens like gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, seafood and shellfish. Lulu’s takes pride in being able to accommodate the needs of its diners, so don’t be shy about letting your server know if there’s a particular food product you can’t eat.
The fun at Lulu’s isn’t limited to the great food. Kids and adults alike will love the arcade, the ropes course and the private, sandy beach! There will also be live music performed every night and a Shag Beach Bar that is sure to become a hot spot for fun and entertainment.
Lucy Buffett is excited to be bringing her vision of Southern hospitality and good food to Myrtle Beach, and she intends to be a good neighbor and a good member of the community – two qualities which she has already proven to be part and parcel of the Lulu’s name. In addition to creating more than 200 future jobs in the community, Lulu’s has a demonstrated history of active community involvement and philanthropic support that make the restaurant not just a great place to eat, but a great business to have as part of the local community.
Lulu’s is set to open in the spring of 2018, so it will be up and running as we move into the summer season. Make a mental note! Your 2018 stay at North Beach Plantation will not be complete without a trip to the new Lucy Buffett’s Lulu’s at Dockside Village in Barefoot Landing, North Myrtle
