I didn't realize this place is a chain until I came to write a review - I guess that's a good sign. We ate here twice on our recent MKE trip - once for the late night munchies after Summerfest, and another time after our Lakefront Brewery tour. Both times the food was great and service was excellent. I'd recommend... More

Had dinner here after a Cubs/Brewers game. We were seated promptly and given menus. Our drinks were brought out right away. Our waitress was excellent! We all enjoyed some kind of pasta. I had the mac and cheese and it was excellent! Look forward to dining here again!!

We drove two hours to see a band this past weekend and had a hotel room downtown. We paid a cover charge and we were kicked out within the first ten minutes there because my brother accidently spilled his beer. Our entire group was kicked out and when i asked for our cover charge back, it was not given back.... More

We stopped at Bar Louie before heading to a MSOE men's basketball game! Our cheeseburgers were fabulous!!! The turn around time from order to table was great, the burgers were done to our liking and there were generous portions or the extras - tomatoes, lettuce, onions, pickles. The fries were seasoned great - nothing else was needed! Our waitress was... More

visited as part of a evening business meal - so prebooked. Food very basic and unexciting with service only average. Shame as this place has great location and potential.

My girlfriend and I met another couple we know after the Bucks game at Bar Louise. The atmosphere was ok, not much dancing.

Tuscan pasta, chocolate cake, and loaded fries were awesome! Bar area sucked though b/c they have terrible bartenders. Must have waited over 20mins for a drink and they weren't even busy yet. Outdoor area is perfect as usual with a great dj too! Perfect location to eat, chat, and people watch, while enjoying some great music.

went there with a decent size group. got seated immediately which was great. unfortunatley the young lady serving us was the only person serving the entire area. she was a bit overwhelmed. the food was good and she did the best she could but in the future they may want to have more staff available on a saturday night

good drinks.. fine service and yummy bar food. I love the "Diva" martini and the truffle popcorn is a nice grown up twist. Plus any place where you can order tater tots is bound to be a recipe for fun!

We ate at Bar Louie on Tuesday, which is when they have "Dollar Burger" night. It is truly a great deal. You can get a hamburger, turkey burger, chicken breast or mushroom burger for $1!! The cheese and toppings are extra, but minimal cost. The turkey burger was HUGE and tender. Also, if you go during happy hour, the appetizers... More
