“Best place in town - period!”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

Louie's is a Waukegan tradition. I've been dining there since before I was born - it's been a family hangout for generations. Food is great (Italian and American fare, full bar), all the staff are awesome. Great place for gatherings with family and/or friends. It's the first place my out-of-town relatives want to go when they come back to visit.

“Great Food - Lousy Service”
Reviewed March 13, 2009

Went to Louie's last Saturday night before a John Prine concert at the Genesee Theater. Had a party of 10 and we were about 12-15 minutes late due to weather and traffic. They gave our 5:30 p.m. table away and we had to wait for another one to open, no problem. However, once we were seated, the waitress was rude and inattentive. She rudely took our pizza orders, then only came back to deliver the food. Thank goodness for the bus girl that kept our water filled and supplied us with fresh breadsticks (YUM). We had to go to the bar several times to get our own drinks for the table. Other than the service, the food was great and we had plenty of time to eat and get to the concert!

“A Classy Joint”
Reviewed March 10, 2008

Louie's is an institution in Waukegan -- and for good reason. It's a great bar with excellent comfort food at reasonable prices. And now that all restaurants are smoke-free, everyone can enjoy the ambience. They are known for their fried chicken and bread sticks, but we love their salads. A true original!
