Louis Louis is a treasure! Select choices on the menu, all thoughtfully prepared and delicious. Approachable rock and roll environment that is inviting to all. Staff were friendly and attentive. Blackened grouper was a definite crowd pleaser. They also featured crab cakes, chicken and pork tenderloin. If you enjoy food and creative atmosphere...you must go to Louis Louis! (Note they... More

A 45min wait which isn't bad for spring break season, and well worth it. Standouts were crab cakes, creme brûlée and key lime pie!!! $200 for 5 peeps, also not bad for the area....cash only. Would def return!

Dined here the other night - it was not like all the other area places. It is a popular place, and the crowd comes early. As everyone has noted the menu is very limited and its cash (or checks) only. The main dining area is large and can get very noisy, we were seated in the side area, a little... More

The restaurant has 3 or 4 choices, so it doesn't take too long to read the chalkboard menu. The stuffed eggplant, panne chicken and grouper dinners are all delicious, served with side salad, veggie and bread. Louis Louis is the most consistent restaurant that I have ever visited, so you know you'll get a wonderful meal, fairly priced. A fun... More

We had drinks at the cool quirky bar and then dinner in the dining room. I love that they bring the board of specials to the table instead of having you try to read it accross the room. I thought that was a great touch. Great food and great service!

Two of us had the fresh grouper and one had pork chops. All three were excellent. Unique menu and specials. The waiter comes around with a specials board and that's what's available. I guess it guarantees fresh items. I didn't mind the limited selection as there was enough to pick from and as it turned out all three meals were... More

The Red Bar in Grayton Beach is my favorite restaurant which is the sister to Louis Louis. The Red Bar is more eclectic and fun but Louis Louis is closer and the food is just as good. My parents are older and Louis Louis is more convenient for them. Never disappointed at either place.

While spending a month in Destin we had the good fortune to dine at Louis Louis's Restaurant. First the service and hospitality were superb. They have a menu of only five or six entrees but all are made with the finest of ingredients. We started with a delicious gumbo and that was the beginning of a fabulous meal. You will... More

Limited menu made with fresh ingredients prepared by an expert chef resulted in amazing flavors that far exceeded our expectations! The portions were also quite large. Our new favorite restaurant!
