My family of six and I, ranging from ages 5 to 63, all enjoyed ourselves! Steve was our server, and was excellent! This is a must visit on the island. We left full and satisfied from the array on the buffet, drinks, and chocolate cake.

This was our third adventure at Louie's while on a vacation. The buffet was excellent with all the prime rib, shrimp, and crab we could eat. We sat in the lower dining area and were able to look out at the bay for summer fireworks...More

The food and service were both excellent. The manager came over several times to make sure everything was good. We have a new waiter who was in training and him and his trainer did a great job taking care of us

Great place to eat on the bay! The seafood buffet was great and the atmosphere was fantastic! Our table was outside on the water and we had a little ocean breeze. Perfect evening.
