This was supposed to be the cats pajamas in Mitchell. I was largely underwhelmed. Service was slow and the food was cold. Beer was cold at least.

I hosted a dinner for 24 on a very busy night in October and the staff and meal were very good. I recommend Chef Louie as the best steak house in town

After our week long Mule deer trip we stopped in mitchell on our way home. We wanted a nice meal. We both ordered the Ribeye. Mine was overcooked and my dads was under cooked. We were the last two in the restaurant so not sure if the cook just had a long night or what but it was only 9PM.... More

When traveling to South Dakota, especially if you will be passing through Mitchell, SD, a stop at Chef Louie's is a must, if you enjoy fine food and excellent wine. The atmosphere is one of the best in SD and includes a seasoned wait staff. The owners are there on-site to seat you and make sure your experience goes well.... More

You need reservations if you are going to Chef Louie's (at least on the weekend). The food is really GOOD, and service is nice. The place is dated, but no one seems to mind.

My husband and I went here for our anniversary and were very pleased with everything. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating! The food and wine were incredible and it was the perfect place in town for a romantic upscale dining experience.

Steak was just ok for a filet not the best I have eaten. My husbands shrimp was just ok. Probably wouldn't make a... More

Had dinner twice; a week apart and was thouroughly pleased both times. Dined with my wife and we both were in a steak eating mood. We had a filet and ribeye the first time and switched up to the Cannollis and filet. Both meals were excellent and I was surprised Mitchell, South Dakota hid such a great restaurant. If you... More

We ate here on a Saturday at 8pm, not super busy. The food was okay, nothing to write home about. The service was slow, had to ask for refills a few times from someone other than our waiter. They have free slice of cheese cake for a birthday.

We were there in april, driving by in August but too early. They did not open until 4:30 PM. Our last experience was so good we looked forward to stopping again. Dang! We will be back!
