You start salivating as soon as you enter the door. Has never disappointed! They also can produce a naturally gluten free meal.. Their French fries are cooked in a dedicated cooker.

What started out as Louie's Pizza, has turned into a family owned restaurant that has been in the Patterson family for about 48 years. Billy and Tony now run the place, and not much on the menu has changed. Signature dishes are lasagna, poor man's lobster, all-you-can-eat-fried-chicken Sundays, Angel on Horseback, Devil on Horseback (you won't be disappointed--french bread with... More

Food is excellent, service is great, although it can be a bit slow when very busy. Family owned for 70 years. Atmosphere is a throwback to the 50's retuarant bar

My parents dated at Louie's back in the 50's. It's been around a long time. The food is always good. . . The bread sticks are to die for! Nice folks, great atmosphere. Love going back there when I'm in town.

We went here based on reviews. My son graduated today and wanted local place. It was very crowded but expected it to be. The food wasn't bad but not amazing. The fries where coldish luke warm at best. Service wasn't too bad considering how busy they were. Would I go go back probably not.

This restaurant has a great atmosphere and has been in town forever! The food has changed over the years, but you can count on the chicken, the garlic butter breadsticks and the home made soups and salad dressings. The service is wonderful!
