Louis Louis cares about every customer and the staff is delightful. You will be presented with the menu on a chalk board by your server. The pasta with shrimp and crawfish is delicious and filling. Deserts are ample to share between two or three people. There is often entertaining live music out front while you are waiting to be seated

We love Louis Louis & the staff & owners!! We prefer the atmosphere to Red Bar if you're wanting less noise & an easier time having a conversation-both are fabulous though. The food is done beautifully & simply every time! My favorite entree is probably the blackened grouper or panne chicken. The crab cakes are also amazing. The dessert is... More

I had been wanting to try Louis Louis, however, the line had been too long this summer to get a table. Apparently, it is owned by the Red Bar proprietor and has many of the same great items on the menu. The crab cakes are outstanding and the set ups are perfect for the dish. The wine and drink selection... More

I had the blacked Grouper served on a grit cake with wilted spinach. It was excellent. The made in house cheesecake was to die for!

This was our second visit, and the food, service, and atmosphere impressed us once again. Our server Melanie was the best: friendly and attentive and our selections were delivered delicious and perfectly prepared. Sure do recommend the smoked tuna dip and we will go back again and again for the blackened grouper. If you want fish Well prepared, you can... More

We have eaten in the restaurant a number of time and gotten take-out from Louis Louis as well. The food is ALWAYS consistent and great. The staff is extremely friendly and seem happy to be there. The menu is almost exactly the same as The Red Bar (same owner) but the wait is much less. This is the one restaurant... More

This was an unusual place. The decor was fun and the menu on the blackboard was very limited. If it wasn't on the board or offered as a special, you didn't get it. Their special was a grilled pork tenderloin. You received a lot of food, but I didn't consider it great food. The pork was tough. The mashed red... More

Wow...all I can say is how sad we were to end our vacation before we had a chance to go in and try their lunch. Do not be daunted by an hour wait - - leaving would be such a big mistake. We bellied up to the bar for some happy hour drinks and two of the friendliest bartenders we've... More

Went last night - family of five. Decor was fun & eclectic. Found out this is the sister company of Red Bar. It's true, they do have a limited menu, it's cash or check (out of state accepted) & they have an ATM on site. I had the pork tenderloin with brown mushroom sauce, mashed potatoes & salad. Husband had... More
