Lou and Mickey’s is not an inexpensive place to dine, their wine prices for example have steep mark ups. That being said they are a dining experience, they have a great ambiance with old wood paneling and leather on the walls. The service is good...More

The food was okay and prices seem standard. Customer Service was very good and attentive. A little lively ie loud but fun. I didn’t like my mash potatoes it was just okay.

Give it a shot- but you can park on the street- finding a space is like rolling the dice in Las Vegas, plenty of paid lots in the area.
