Clouds Restaurant closed in Nov. of 2012 and was turned into Louie's Cajun Kitchen & Bourbon Bar. The food is spicy and good. Not much on the menu for vegetarians.

Classy atmosphere, but relatively inexpensive as high-end restaurants go. Also has a bar area. Located downtown, near multiplex cinema.

This restaurant is now called Louie's and we were able to meet Louie and his wife. They are amazing people. The food was amazing the atmosphere was open and warm. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to have atmosphere, comfort, joy, home, and connection while having a mouth watering experience. BJK

Six of us went in for drinks and possible snacks. Service was great and it was Happy Hour and had great value on some very good appetizers! Should have gone back for dinner instead of alternate choice.

Food was ok. Service was half assed. The men's restroom was disgusting. 5PM on Valentine's Day and there was water on the floor, the stall door had been busted and repaired a hundred times. You'd be happier almost anywhere else.

Good attentive service from Louie and excellent food. The fried calamari is quite good and different in that they are in a tempura style; nice crunch and no greasy off flavors. The crab cakes are moist, hold together well enough to eat with your fork and interesting with the corn niblets inside them. The blackened ahi salad is well above... More
