Stuck on the poor mans lobster, which is really boiled cod. So good. Fresh salad with excellent dressing. First place that introduced me to beets, hooked ever since. Baked potato was definitely baked, not microwaved. Great quick service for drinks. My family loved the French onion soup and the hot breadsticks. Lots of locals and "used to be's" having a good time, maybe catching the show at the Genesee. Or not.

I spent a lot of time at Louie's as a child. It is like a character in a book for me. I remembered the phone number Cherry 4-0101; Reminiscing about Louie's is lovely and it's such a delight to see that it retains all the good qualities I remember--bread deserves at least a chapter for itself,

Foods ok. I think a lot of it is frozen then prepped. Other than the salads not much fresh is happening here, but I don't think folks care. Decor is interesting in the front original part of the restaurant. Always good service. The old folks love this place because of probably what it and the neighborhood used to be. It's an island and now an oddity in that town. If you're in Waukegan (why.?.) it's worth visiting.

A nice family run place for decades. The Angel on Horseback is my recommendation. You will have a hard time finding anything bad on the menu. Highly recommend if you are in Waukegan.
