Plenty of parking . I liked the look of the place inside. The service was good and the food was excellent. Good atmosphere nothing too fancy. We went for lunch their was three of us . A little pricey for more than one person.

Had a nice dinner there, but was sad to find they changed the menu and took away my favorite dish. Boo-hoo. The buffalo chicken pizza was very salty and the dough wasn't cooked through. Service was friendly and fast and bathroom was clean.

I knew Cafe Lou Lou has been around for awhile but had never had the opportunity to visit until last week. I was very pleased that I was going to attend a business lunch there. The staff was friendly enough and we were seated quickly. It was lunch time and it was busy. The atmosphere was trendy once upon a... More

We have been there a number of times and we always seem to land back on the salads, wings and artisan pizza's. Its good service and usually a good crowd.

Went with a girlfriend for lunch. The place was crowded but not crazy, our server was attentive and really friendly and was super helpful with suggestions since we had never been before. We both had pasta dishes that were rich and creamy and amazing (and I had leftovers to take home) and then shared a bread pudding that was out... More

Visited restaurant based on recommendation from a local B&B. We had a delicious meal. The shrimp & grits were excellent (to many mushrooms for my liking, but just pushed them aside).

Had dinner there last night and probably won't go back. Service was very odd. Friendly but not really very interested in us. Took a long time to get anything and server said "kitchen was really backed up" even though there were only 10 people in the restaurant. My friend's drink was not made like it was described and trying to... More

Out to a late dinner after tennis with friends. Walked in, no reservation seated and greeted immediately. Friendly, knowledgeable servers. Large portions. Quick to take drink and appetizer orders. Good specials. Delicious pizzas. Open footprint. Very quiet (half full).

My Husband & I ate an early dinner at Cafe Lou Lou's and was not disappointed! The shrimp & grits were some of the best I had ever eaten! My husband had the chef's special which he loved. The waiter was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was fun. We would definitely eat there again!
