Food is always awesome but too dark and too loud

You cannot go wrong with the food at Lou's. It is always amazing and the servings are huge. However, it is so dark we had to use the flashlights on our phone to read the menu and the music was so loud it was impossible to have a conversation.

Drinks and food are reasonably priced. Menu offers variety for everyone in your party. The outdoor patio has seating for larger groups and has standing heaters for the evenings if needed. Food came to the table hot and at the same time for everyone in our group. Not sure about the volume of the music though. We had just been... More

If you like dark atmosphere and loud music this is the place. The kale salad, chicken wings, and ribs are excellent. Specials of the day are also very tasty. Best to get here before the sun goes down as the subdued lighting makes it difficult to read the menu or see your food. And the volume of the music is... More

I have been going to Lou's on and off for a while now and while the food is quite good, they blare the music (even for breakfast) to the point where you have to yell to carry on a conversation with the person sitting beside you and refills are not free... You would figure after paying $4 for a glass... More

I haven't been to Lous in a number of years. Upon the recent visit I was disappointed by the environment and the food. The meal I ordered, chorizo Mac n cheese, would have been more aptly named penne chowder with fried onions. An American sized serving of deep fried onions could have garnished the entire restaurants meals and the "Mac... More

I have tried this place three times. Not going back. Yes, it busy and yes they probably are making lots of money. But sorry Lou, I am tired of all the smoking on the porch and the really loud atmosphere. Don't get me wrong I like action but this place made me look for my keys. Try a lighter menu... More

Dined there with kids, friends, family, and colleagues for both lunch and dinner for a variety of occasions Most recently a buddy and I had a burger and... More

I have been to this roadhouse about 5 times and each time I regret it. As always it is in order to placate a friend, or in this case a family member. The food is average at best and the menu is huge, which is never a good sign. I had a lobster BLT with dry bread whilst my friend... More
