We were there the first day since the name change. Same owners but different decor. The burgers and chicken sandwiches were great! We had an appetizer of the bread sticks with marinara sauce! Excellent. The service was great. Would highly recommend this place.

We love coming to Papa Lou's when we come up north. The pizza is amazing and if you corn during happy hour, you get a pizza for $5.00. Out waiter Josh was friendly and knowledgeable about the wonderful beer selection. We will be back!
