Love this place. The combo of prime shires and mushroom risotto is to die for. Its a nice ambiance, but casual enough that if we bring our kids its not uncomfortable. The food is always high quality, and the staff is clearly experienced. We love...More

Really good tasty steaks! Reasonably priced, good choices of side dishes offered. Great service offered from the time we stepped in, they were even kind enough to turn down the outside music so we could hear each other. Great view of the lake. Want a...More

Nothing to complain about here - two perfect steaks served on the little terrace at the front of the restaurant. Reasonable choice of wines to go with our food. Overall, the bill was a little higher than similar meals we'd had elsewhere during our holiday.

From the ambiance to the service, Louie's offers a relaxed atmosphere for fine dining. You want an exceptional steak, this is where you go. The staff bent over backwards at the last special occasion I attended in the lounge.
