Perfect American Restaurant!

Regularly do brunch at Lou's during the summer season, and although it is always busy, the staff do a great job of getting you seated as soon as possible. Food is delicious, would recommend most of the menu! Definitely worth a visit!

So-so restaurant. Carry-out pie was fair only. I probably will not go back here. Look around at other options.

It's everything a diner should be, Great food and hot coffee. Perfect breakfast spot. Very accomodating - esp for those of us who eat gluten free.

Lou's has all of the traditional breakfast favorites along with a number of variations on the favorites that make it unique. I look forward to having breakfast or brunch there every time I am in the area. I wish I had a Lou's in my town!

We were looking for somewhere to have breakfast and found Lou's Restaurant and Bakery on South Main Street. It was quite inviting from the outside, we were warmly welcomed and a table was quickly found for us. The restaurant was busy and there was a good buzz to the place. On the menu there was a wide range of items... More

Having breakfast or lunch as Lou's is a homecoming of sorts. The quality of the food and service is always exceptional. The tradition lives on!

This is the best corned beef hash I have ever had in a restaurant. Lou's focuses on fresh local ingredients - your eggs, bacon, toast etc most likely originated in NH or VT. Go to spot for ordering birthday cakes.

It's often a wait but always worth it. Great breakfasts, lovely lunch--amazing milkshakes. Always crowded with cute college kids. They have mile-high pies to eat and to go. I went once the day before Thanksgiving and there were millions of them piled all over the restaurant. It's a not-miss kind of local place.

Very cute place with the most tasty food in a quaint town! We could smell the wonderful smell before we Loved the Favorite Breakfast Sandwich and Carrot Cake Pancakes. Service was great. Will return and highly recommend.

This restaurant has been around in Hanover "forever" and you can see it in all the pictures on the walls. It's a favorite haunt of the Dartmouth students and faculty. A good selection of food and the pricing is OK. There can be long lines inside waiting for a table which speaks to the popularity of Lou's. Also they have... More
