Good Place

Good place to grab a beer or two, and maybe some snacks. We were walking around and stopped in for just that. Staff were just attentive enough, snacks decent, and prices reasonable.

This is the only spot on the strip that welcomed us in for 'just' for a drink on Super Bowl's eve. Every other place said no or wanted us to jump into a bar area that was already jammed. Funny thing was these places were deserted in their dining areas hah! Thank you Lou's, your staff and servers are fantastic!... More

Quick and great service. The food was delicious and we have three very picky eaters in our family, including a vegetarian and we were all able to find something we loved.

Looking for a place for a quick bite on Fisherman's Wharf that didn't cost an arm and a leg. This place did the trick. Efficient wait staff and my crab bisque soup was very good.

Terrific spot to hear and dance to good music. The food? It's decent but I am not sold on the value/price proposition. The service was excellent though.

Basil Gimlet was excellent! Dungeness crab bisque was fabulous! Atmosphere wasn't fancy, but we weren't looking for fancy. Staff was friendly and attentive.

This is not fine dining. But want a good burger and fries with cold beer and smok'n blues? Hit this joint. Good prices and a nice spot to chill.

If you are looking for great seafood, good service, and decent prices, Lou's is a great choice. Had the cobb salad and fish tacos. Both were great portions and very tasty. Would return.
