Papa Lou's is our lunch stop for our annual "Dear Camp" where 30 plus girls dress in camo, have designated drivers and have a great day and evening. We typically take over most or all of the upstairs room at Papa Lou's. This year, Josh did an OUTSTANDING job bartending and waiting on us. Don't know how he did it... More

Fabulous pizza. Try the Caprese, like summer in a pan. Enjoyed waiter Josh, friendly and attentive staff.

We love coming to Papa Lou's when we come up north. The pizza is amazing and if you corn during happy hour, you get a pizza for $5.00. Out waiter Josh was friendly and knowledgeable about the wonderful beer selection. We will be back!

is the chili and the hot Italian sub. Both are incredible. If you like your chili hot, spicy hot, this is for you. Not burn your mouth hot, but maybe make you sweat a bit. I love it. And the sub? I'll never go back to Subway, again.

Stopped in for an early quick dinner before heading back to Charlevoix. The place was nearly totally empty. Soup and a sandwich sounded good to both of us so we each ordered the french onion and the 12" steak and cheese 'grinder' that we would split. First the soup. Probably one of the worst french onion soups we ever had.... More

This will be an uncharacteristically short review on my part. Not much to say. I have been in Papa Lou's on multiple occasions over the last few years. The food was never anything special and the service varied from "decent" to "horrible" on every visit. I continued to return in large part due to the convenience. Parking on the street... More

Comfy Restaurant with good food...Tried the spaghetti with italian sausage. Better than expected and the sausage had great flavor. Service was quick and good. Worth going to for sure.
