I love the way this place is decorated! Perfect for Padre! The food wasn't wonderful, but it wasn't bad either. We didn't like that people could smoke inside, but maybe others would like that!

This place is awesome to eat and especially drink. The Louie bombs are awesome, it's the drink to have plus the ocean view is cool.

Go check it out, a great place looking out over the bay especially at sunset and Friday night fireworks during the summer. Lots to see and do in the area.

We've been to Louie's before but it had been a while. We were starting at the Flamingo Inn and the manager had suggested Louie's for their seafood buffet. While I'm not a big fan of buffets, this one was fabulous! The crab legs were great...More
