Took our extended family group of 12 here on Sunday evening. Arrived about 5pm and got a table in about 5 minutes. Our group was 6 adults and 6 children aged 1-12. The limited menu offered something for everyone. We had smoked tuna and fried green beans as an appetizer. The kids ordered mainly chicken tenders of course. Large orders... More

Exactly the same as The Red Bar, but with a shorter wait, and a little less congested. Limited menu, but the food is delicious and plentiful.

This is a sister restaurant to The Red Bar...but they do take credit cards (Red Bar does not!) Be prepared for a wait...but it was bearable. We had one crab cake appetizer and it was delicious! The dinner portions are large with enough for take-home!!!

I would give Louis Louis a 3.5. We have been multiple times, but I'm finally getting time to do a review. Just order beer! The cocktails we had were not good. I ordered a Michters old fashioned. The first issue was that the bartender substituted bourbon for rye. Not a huge issue, but I expected him to say 'hey buddy... More

Even though you are limited to a few menu items, the entrees are just beautifully prepared and delicious, most of our group had the blacken grouper which was served with a very nice salad on top of a grit cake. It was just delicious, and the portion was very generous considering grouper is an expensive fish. They served very delicious... More

This is a sister to Red Bar so some things are the same: same small menu, no separate checks, funky decor. Some things are pleasantly different: quieter (but not quiet), more room, shorter waits, and plenty of parking. Our crew of 11 had a fine time. Had every entree and all were great. As good as the crab cakes were,... More

No one left hungry. The... More

Service was good and they were more than prepared to handle the anticipated crowds. However, it was so noisy and frantic. Unfortunately I was seated on the traffic flow through for wait staff and it was not a relaxing place to eat. Husband and I had the pork and it was OK. Accompanying sauce was not to our liking nor...

This is a great place to eat. Everything from the appetizer to desert was fabulous. Very good, attentive service. Cool, unique ambiance. The menu is limited but this is a plus, not a weakness. You will have a great meal here and will not be disappointed.

Louis Louis serves the same similar chalkboard items to the sister restaurant Red Bar, but I swear the quality of the food is better! One of my all time favorite entrees is crab cakes and if you're looking for a great tuna dip then the search stops here.

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!
