We were in town for a baseball tournament, and our whole team with family members ate a late lunch here. About 35 of us came as a group, and they seated us in a back room right away. Drinks were to us within 2-3 minutes along with garlic bread. The pizza came quickly too, and it was yummy. Crust was... More

Although Louie's has certainly changed over the years and the prices have increased, the food is still good, the service excellent and the atmosphere very nice.

We were hungry about 4:00 pm on a weekday. We had never tried Louie's, but had driven by several times. We were the first of the early dinner crowd. We were told that the happy hour specials were available, along with dinner. The specials were "lunch size" versions, and were "just right" for what we wanted. The sauce was tasty... More

We went here for a birthday party. We had around 20 or so people in our party. The service was ok, but I felt rushed every time the next course of food was brought out. The steak I ordered was good but not remarkable. Of all the dishes ordered that night, the majority of the people in our party agreed... More

There are a handful of fine servers at this establishment. Judging by the appearance of the building, the consistency of the food, the prices of the cheap wines they offer, and how they wash your dishes in the back is utterly cheap, dissappointing, and a sign that the management crew here is careless. Countless times this restaurant has only had... More

We had a group of over 40 people for a birthday party on Saturday. The family style italian food was the best...fresh salad, homemade pizza and pasta! I LOVED it!

I remember coming here as a kid and thinking it was so fancy. When we walked in, the building is beautiful, but their décor (peeling wallpaper, orange and blue BSU shirts and sweatshirts hanging on a wire from the ceiling, obviously fake plants, etc.) was tackiness at it's worst. Sitting down, we were greeted by our server, who checked on... More

Louie's is always a great relaxing dinner or lunch. The pizza is very tasty! Service is always good. The chocolate cake dessert is good as well. The best part is the relaxing atmosphere though. A great choice for a last min decision for a sit down dinner.

Excellent selection of pasta, and the tortellini is absolutely wonderful. My husband and I have come here on our anniversary. One of the most memorable meal is when our waiter sang for us. The staff really gives 110%.

Nothing about our experiences at Louie's have been bad, but nothing's been great. The food is ordinary American Italian, a bit on the bland side, the atmosphere's a tad cold and a little loud, the service perfunctory but efficient. Not a bad place, but not a special one.
