Great food and restaurant. The steak is one of the best in Mitchell. Prices are expected for the style of restaurant but very reasonable for the small town. Do not need to be in a suit and tie to eat here. Do feel better dressed up a little but that's just me. Would recommend this to anyone... read more

Not a lot to choose from in Mitchell, SD but Chef Louie's stands out as the best in town. Comfortable atmosphere and steaks prepared as ordered. Definitely my go to spot when I am in town.

Great food. We have not had a bad meal. I like the walleye, steak and prime rib dinners. It is a nice place to relax after a long drive to have a nice meal and a drink.

Great meal. We pulled into town late at night. The lounge was still open. We went in and asked if we could still order something to eat. The chef came out and said that even though the restaurant was closed, we could order anything on the menu. All three of us thought the meal was well prepared, fresh, prompt and... More

We ate here while pheasant hunting a year ago. Last year food and service was superb. This year food was mediocre and service was awful. Don't know what happened but no longer top of my list.

Chef Louie has excellent food however the price is high. Good steaks and the potatoes au gratin are a favorite side.

My wife and I got into Mitchell late and I quickly searched TripAdvisor for a restaurant. I was happy to see the #1 ranked restaurant was very close to our hotel. Chef Louie’s is an attractive restaurant. We elected to sit and dine at the bar and received excellent drink and food service by several bartenders. We both had filets... More

We go to Chef Louie's for special occasions as a tradition. But the food choices on the menu, the prices, and the quality of food have us going for everyday Friday/Saturday meals too. Excellent staff--great soups, dinner bread with honey-butter, and lots of food choices. You can go in casual clothes or in dressier clothes-- you will see it all... More

I asked the hotel clerk where I could get a good taste of South Dakota beef and she referred me to Chef Louie's.. The whole experience was excellent. Service was cordial and prompt and the rib eye steak was tender, tasty and prepared to perfection.. This family owned business is a great place for a good meal in a nice... More
