Pizza was delicious too!

We thought this place was very tasty! I ordered a filet with scallops and they both were delicious. The scallops were big and perfectly cooked. My partner ordered a pizza and we were both impressed with it. A perfect cook, crispy and delicious! We would definitely stop here again.

Went to New Year's dinner. The ambience was nice the service excellent. The lobster bisque for the first course was very good but way too big. Then we got the main course. All our dinners were cold and the steak was chewy. For a steak house, when you order a rib eye steak it should not be tough and chewy.... More

Having eaten at most decent restaurants in the Kootenays, Louie's is up there with my favourites. I ordered the a scallop appetizer, and boy was it good. The NY strip entrée was cooked exactly as ordered and was a solid dish. The vegetables were crisp and fresh, the mash potatoes were fantastic and the peppercorn sauce and gorgonzola cheese was...

We had a business dinner at Louie's. It was a quiet evening, we were the only table occupied. The service was quick and professional. I ordered the baby back ribs. The ribs had a lot of flavour, but were a little tough. All the others really enjoyed there meals. Two had the short ribs and they were apparently excellent. We... More

I highly recommend the wok fried squid. It will be hard to go back to eating the usual calamari after having this dish. Great service. Very good Creme brûlée. Definitely would recommend this. Next time will have the steak as I hear it is the best steak in Nelson

Louie's has a great bar lounge on way to dining and you can even stay there and eat. It is our expensive luxury restaurant as it is pricey. Food is almost always great, especially all steaks.

My husband and I went to this restaurant on a Tuesday evening. We sat in the bar area and had walked in without a reservation. After we arrived the tables got busier. Very friendly and relaxed waitress, no rush to order and just what we wanted. We had crab cakes and scallops to start, both which were nicely presented and... More
