Best kept lunch secret on the Emerald Coast!

Although Louis Louis is well known as a dinner spot, they only serve lunch during the high season and it is definitely worth seeking out. They don't advertise their lunch menu so it's a real well kept secret for locals in the know. The service is incredible, the food is exceptional, and the prices... read more

Louis Louis had such great reviews, we were really excited about going. Of course the wait was long as always. This is also one of the many restaurants that only accepts cash or checks, no credit cards. There is an ATM on site. The servers walk around with a large chalk board which lists the very limited menu. Again, it... More

My family's annual trip to Destin wouldn't be complete within dining at Louis Louis. The menu doesn't change much year after year, but why mess with such a great thing? The restaurant's namesake is always there to greet you with a colorful shirt and smile. Be sure to sample one of the homemade desserts. Highly recommended!

My wife and I heard about how great the Red Bar was at Grayton Beach, but read Trip Advisor reports that Red Barn was rather raucous. Not our style, but we like good food. So . . . we were pleased to hear about Louis Louis, which we read was owned by the same people as Red Bar -- but,... More

We have been Louis Louis dinner fans for a few years, so we were intrigued to hear they were open now for lunch featuring a sandwich menu. We were not disappointed! Our group especially enjoyed the grouper reuben, chicken sandwich, burger (don't forget the fries) and shrimp salad. All were cooked to perfection! We were seated and served quickly. Just... More

Excellent service, outstanding food, great atmosphere. Is cash/check only, but they are up front about that. We will likely visit here a 2nd time on this trip!

We stopped in for lunch recently while on a road trip through Florida. Had no idea what we were in for. It was delicious, beautifully presented and a real value. Love the way the restaurant is decorated: so eccentric and fun! The key lime pie is to die for - amazing! Thanks for the wonderful conversation Little Louis; it was... More

Love the quirkiness of this place . But love the food even more . Once again blackened grouper over grits and the gumbo came out as the favorite dishes in our group .

Had a business lunch and all four of us loved our meals. I had the meatloaf which was moist and delicious. Best I have ever had. It came with a fresh green salad with a light balsamic vinaigrette. Also their signature homemade mashed potatoes. So good. My companions had the Grouben which was a grouper sandwich made up like a... More
