“Never Fails!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

On a recent visit to the Lowcountry, I took the opportunity to return to Louis's for a meal. Traveling alone and wishing, uncharacteristically, to eat a light repast, I ordered crab cakes, ceasar salad and a glass of Sauvignon blanc. Simply put, my meal was outstanding! I have sampled Louis's menu several times in the past. For first time patrons, I might recommend Shrimp and Grits or, perhaps one of the smoked meats that are so lovingly prepared by Louis and his staff. I am lucky enough to find myself in the area 2 or 3 times a year and always make it a point to visit Louis's at Sanfords. For the rest of the time I must satisfy my urges vicariously by reading Marlene Osteen's frequent updates which are sent to me via email and contain wonderful descriptions of menu changes, music and event schedules and the like. Do yourself a favor and sign up for these missives. I find it a great way to help make it through the harsh Boston winters! Thank you Louis & Marlene for a "Never Fail" dining experience!

“Outstanding meal and music!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Everyone's closed on Sunday, but not Louis'! Walked in to a guitarist and fiddler playing and were serenaded as we ate a fabulous meal with fabulous wine. Definitely recommend and we'll be back.

“Louis' shrimp & grits worth traveling from any where in the world to eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Louis' ranked below pizza joints, breakfast spots & bakeries in Pawleys Island? Shows how unreliable TripAdvisor is! For goodness sake, this chef is one of the top in the world as evidenced by his winning the James Beard Award. The shrimp & grits and Louis' Sunday dinner were the best as always!

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

The locals here take for granted the great food and drink this place has to offer. Service is typically very good, the few "bad apples" are overlooked as the food is the best in the area. Louis and his staff are truely the best in their field!!! Enjoy your meal!!!

“Our first night in South Carolina”

Very nice and pleasant dinner. Our three years old daughter loved the Shrimp and Oyster Gumbo. I enjoyed the spaghetti with lobster. Great service provided by Giovanni :) We will definitely come back!
