We had a spontaneous dinner at the Bar Louie and most of us had Burgers. They all were great. I especially enjoyed the one with bacon and a fried egg. There was no unnecessary mayonnaise or other sauce on the burger that would distract from the juicy meat. The other dishes seemed to be tasteful, too. Oh yes, and they... More

I love their pear salad! Nice outdoor dining with the option of tables or sofa around the fire pit. Very accommodating staff for unexpected larger crowds. Tuesdays are cheap burger nights so go early!

We went to Bar Louie on our way to see the Rolling Stones. What a treat it was! The patio seating on a beautiful day was delightful, but in bad weather they have lots of indoor seating. The staff was particularly friendly, good menu and $1 burger specials. Beers were inexpensive by California standards and served in a timely way.... More

Great place all around! Appetizers of the chicken flatbread and crispy calamari were very tasty. The fish with Panko bread crumbs served on skewers was excellent. We were there on a Friday night before going to the Milwaukee Rep and Happy Hour prices are offered at your table! Great drink prices and 1/2 priced appetizers!

Went with older kids and ordered mostly burgers. The food was average. The restaurant was empty, and the server was good. Nothing exciting.

We wandered into Bar Louie when a restaurant in the area was unexpectedly closed and we had limited time to find something to eat. From the outside I expected something more upscale, but it was a casual bar; you find your own seating and service arrives when it arrives. It's a busy place, but once we connected with a waitress...

Went on a Sunday afternoon to have lunch and watch some football. We had to ask someone to take our order. We not treated rudely while the 4 staff members sat around doing shots and drinking beer. Our food was delivered finally. We had no silverware, napkins or condiments. I had to take a Ketchup bottle and salt shaker from... More

We stopped at Bar Louie after attending a sporting event in Milwaukee! We had a group of 18 people and had called ahead to make sure we had a few tables set aside for our large group. Bar Louie called to confirm we were still coming which was very considerate :) When we arrived they had tables set aside for... More
