    The linginini with white clam sauce is good, so are the calamari.

      ate there a few weeks ago. all the food was very good. it's a bit of a scene and very noisy, but all six people at our table really enjoyed their meals.

        amazing sushi bar in the rear of the joint. it is a bit loud during peak hours but thats the nature with downtown spots. and btw, the burger is the secret weapon.

          One of the best atmospheres in town, IMO. Great drinks, awesome wine list, stone crab, oysters, the list goes on!

            Between my party of 5, we had just about every fish on the menu and all of them were fantastic.

              It's surprisingly cute for how large the space is.
              This is a go-to spot for bringing clients. It's hip enough and busy enough. But won't intimidate the more conservative diner.
              I tend to get sushi here and always seems really fresh.
              Only issue is with the oysters. they're never as cold as you want them to be. I think they shuck and rinse before they're served.
              Service is just okay, but not bad enough to distract from your visit - it just doesn't add to it.

                Went a couple of months ago, had the Burger, it was great. Huge burger, well seasoned meat, topped with an onion ring.

                The drinks were great too, had something dark red - I think it was with pomegranate juice or some obscure berry - lingonberry? Can't remember well but the liquor was gin in it I think and it was delicious.

                I wanted to bump this thread since if I started a new thread people would be annoyed. I read past reviews of Lure and it seems that everyone likes it since it was fixed up after the fire in early 2006. Is this accurate? Is the sushi good? Great? Grossly overpriced? It looks so good on their website, but $16 for a spicy yellowtail roll?? $8 for a salmon/avocado roll?? Is it worth it? Expensive food is fine, but I don't want to pay for ambiance and location.

                  It is pretty steeply priced after happy hour, which is a buy! One seems to be paying for ambiance, to some extent.

                    Hi, do you know the happy hour hours? and is there any sushi available then? i just checked out the hh menu online, but it's limited and doesn't state hours.

                      I just hit the Lure happy hour on Friday for the first time and thought it was great. I think it runs from 5-7 Monday-Friday, and I don't remember there being any sushi specials. I think the menu online is comprehensive (http://www.lurefishbar.com/menus/Lure...).

                    I thought the sushi was good, but not spectacular. There are other places that do sushi better. However, their fish was awesome, excellent wine list, and I had a spectacular lobster roll. I definitely walked out thinking it was great.
