The strawberry lemonade sangria was worth 3 stars on it’s own. It’s not a place to go if your looking for a lot of noise and people, it’s cute, spacious and nice for drinks and a light meal. All in all, I’d go back

We're glad to hear that the sangria comes so highly recommended! We hope that another drink or menu item earns another star in the future. Either way, we'd love to see you again! -PB

Bar Louie is the "go to" restaurant/bar for my wife and me. We love the food and drink and our favorite servers, Peter and Mara in particular and our favorite manager, Adam. The service is outstanding and the happy hour pricing gives great value.

First time, mediocre food, same 2nd time around. Service is fine, location is great but the food just isn't worth coming for. Won't be back.

A pretty average bar. It's large, plenty of places to choose from to sit (bar, booths, etc). The service was ok. The servant had to go ask about what kind of beers they have on the menu, but overall was very useful. The food was...More

It's great that you had an overall happy time with us, but we're disappointed that there was nothing outstanding about your visit. We want you to be completely blown away by everything here, and we hope you'll give us another chance to knock your socks...More
