This is what a local steak restaurant should be!

We were just passing through Mitchell, SD for the 2nd time in 13 years and we came back to Chef Louie's as we remembered it well from last time. Their food is really good and the service is excellent. The owners and chef came by the table several times to see if we needed anything and to see if... read more

Recently visited chef louie's for the second time since our first visit was amazing had to stop here again while in this area. Great wine selection as well as mixed drinks and the steaks. That's the reason we returned! Cooked just to our request. Overall a great experience for everyone in our group. Soup did taste a little different then... More

Don't let the outside throw you - it's a nice, cozy restaurant inside. My husband had Walleye which he thought was great and I had filet mignon that was quite good. Steak prices were very reasonable so I rated Chef Louis a 5 instead of a 4 for value. Service was excellent and there was a nice selection of steak... More

We were slightly disappointed in Chef Louie's as it had been rated so high on your travelers reviews. There were four of us and only two were happy with the steaks. Those two had filets and you can't really go wrong with them unless they are over cooked.

We stopped in Mitchell for the night on our way west. We've stayed in Mitchell several times, but this was the first time we ate at Chef Louie's. We wanted to try a new place as one we used to visit was not all that good on our last visit. We had narrowed our choice to a couple of steak... More

After a day at the Badlands, we got off the highway to check the Corn Palace off the list. The kids had no interest in even getting out of the car since they were pretty hungry and after a quick search, we agreed on Chef Louie's. I'll admit, I had pretty low expectations and they didn't exactly increase when we... More

I was raving how good this place was to some of our relatives we got together with and we all came for dinner one night. We have always had the best food here and the steaks to die for. This time not so good. The steaks were very tough, I remember getting two sides with our meal before and only... More
