I have been to other Bar Louie locations before so I expected something pretty good and this was definitely not. A half hour after ordering food, the waiter approached the table and asked us if we wanted to go somewhere else because there was only...More

Stopped here after a few of the NCAA games recently to grab a bite to eat while waiting for our car service. For the most part this is a creative menu on traditional dishes. Ordered an appetizer, bartender who took the order didn't bother to...More

The service and food was excellent but I only gave it four stars because the tables are so sticky. They used the wrong type of finish on the tables so your arms and hands stick to the table. Your napkin does too! Kind of gross.
