We went to Red Bar and it was closed on Tues., we heard this was just as good so we gave it a try. It's the same menu as Red Bar and it's equally delicious. Huge portions so make sure your hungry because it's too good to waste. Our new favorite place in Santa Rosa!!!

The menu is small but everything our group of 8 ate was wonderful. The smoked tuna dip is the best I have ever had. The crab cakes are good and the blackened fish and grit cakes were excellent. We got there as soon as they opened and were seated immediately. It didn't take long for the place to fill up.... More

Visited here a few years ago with a large group. Five of us ate there on a Saturday night. Simply--great food, great service and our orders came out quickly. Had the fried beans and shrimp rolls for appetizers--recommend both. I had the sautéed fish--excellent. The rest in our group had the shrimp & pasta or the shrimp, crawfish &pasta. Everyone... More

While visiting for a short vacation and a long half marathon we were introduced to this local gem. From the moment we walked in the experience was awesome. Louis was in house and greeted us with a hug and handshake and we were seated right away, for a party of 6 it was pretty impressive especially seeing busy it was.... More

Our attempt to eat dinner with friends on Friday was a very bad experience. Right at the start we were told our party could not be seated as one person was  going to be a few minutes late. We were then allowed to be seated ( as per the manager ) if we would text our late person for her... More

Our attempt at dinner was a disaster from start to finish and we left without ordering food or finishing our wine. Our waiter was angry and aggressively rude. Requesting a wine list and a second (gasp) drinks menu for a party of eight nearly pushed him over the edge. Imagine our disappointment when we asked to speak with a manager... More

Decided on this place at the last minute. What a great place this is. Seated right away. Not real big but a busy place. Great atmosphere. Pictures, chandeliers , and stuff everywhere. Pretty cool. Owner walks around chatting. Nice touch. There is a very limited menu here. A few appetizers and fivebentrees to choose from. We had the blackened grouper... More

I live nearby and pop in weekly for drinks, dinner or just dessert. No telling how many visits I've had or how much money I have spent there but I thought it was time to give them a review. The staff is fantastic and both Louis' (father and son) make you feel like family. The menu is simple but the... More

LouisLouis is the sister restaurant of the famous and iconic Red Bar. It is very similar in style, and cuisine, but has it's own charm, and uniqueness about it. LouisLouis is casual dining, but with great service, and fantastic food options. Our menu is not very large, but our portions are. We only use the best, and freshest ingredients. If you are in the Santa Rosa Beach/Destin/Panama City Beach area, please come and dine with us. You won't be disappointed!
