My friend so excited to come here as he has been here before during spring break. We went there a week ago and it was kind of uneventful. I found the big open space to feel awkward. I think this would be a better stop...More

On the Island and feeling a little hungry so stopped by. Had a couple of drinks and some good wings. Sat out on the balcony and enjoyed the great view of the bay, birds and sunset. It was a nice stop and worth the money.More

Went there for lunch. The prime rib sandwich is to die for. Staff was pleasant. It's sits right on the water we were there on a cloudy day but would have had a great view otherwise.

Have been to Louis three times. Prime Rib early bird special is amazing. The fish and shrimp dinner was fantastic and the ribs delicious.

Hard to beat the Thursday night rib special, absolutely delicious. And inexpensive. The only issue I have seen is some inconsistency in the quality of the ribs, (rarely), where the odd meal has overdone ribs, or the rack is less than meaty. Otherwise, no complaints.

One of the worst dining experiences ever! Shrimp brochette was 6 very small shrimp that were overcooked. The "rice pilaf" was nothing more than steamed plain white rice. Many items on the salad bar looked like they had been there many days. Baked potato was...More

It's disappointing to read this. We're sorry to hear that what you ordered and the salad bar didn't completely hit the spot. We're always happy to swap a dish out if it isn't to your liking -- just ask for a manager. Regardless, we're glad...More
