Diner Reviews
  • "We were in search of a great place in Oak Lawn that wasn't a chain; and we found it! I would highly recommend this restaurant. The food was great, the atmosphere was very nice too. Don't let the prices sway you, it was well worth the money."

  • "Our family came here to celebrate my son's graduation from college. We sat at a table in the bar area, very nice and relaxing. No rushing, great food and our waitress Jessica (I think) was awesome! Our table ordered a variety, from Prime rib (giant portion), ribs, chicken, lamb and salmon. No complaints. Just what we were looking for! "

  • "Always a neighborhood gem. Great steaks grilled perfectly and excellent service. It looks more modern since the recent remodel. Nice wood floors. However, it did raise the noise level. "

  • "Louie's was recommended to me by a friend. I took my Mom there for Mothers Day. It was our first time there and we both enjoyed it very much. A little pricy but you get what you pay for. The quality of food, the lay out of the place and service were very good. They gave all the ladies a beautiful long stem rose for Mother day. I will definitely be returning. "

  • "Great food, great service and the free parking is a bonus. My wife and I always go to Louie's to celebrate a special occasion. We can count on this chophouse for a great steak at a very reasonable price. The waitstaff are very friendly and attentive from the time you enter to the time you leave. We always have a good experience when we go there. "

  • "Louie's Chophouse is always great....but this time everything was fabulous. We sat in the bar for the first time and Alex was the best server we have experienced! The steaks were cooked to perfection as always."

  • "This is a really nice place. Like a Downtown Steakhouse in the Southwest suburbs. The steaks are wonderful and the fried cheesecake alone is worth the trip! Great waitstaff. "

  • "My wife and I both had the Filet and was very disappointed. The size of the steak was very good, but it literally had no taste to it. I very rarely add salt or pepper to a steak but had to on this occasion. I had the baked potato, which was good. My wife had the garlic mashed which was not very tasty. The restaurant itself was a very nice surprise. It was rather large and spaced nicely. Waiter was attentive. "

  • "Nice local chophouse. Good selection of steak and fish which was prepared as ordered. The service was attentive without becoming overbearing. We dined on a Saturday night and the two piece band was decent - the volume was such that our party of four could hold a decent conversation without the need to yell."

  • "A group of us were in town for a meeting and the hotel recommended Louie's. We had a group of 4 for dinner and ordered 3 Bone-in Ribeyes & 1 Prime Rib. The portion sizes were very generous and the Prime Rib reminded us of the Flintstones. The House Cab was great, sides were tasty and overall a great meal."

  • "1st Visit (Approx.11 yrs ago)-Food fine, had a great dining experience. Ate HALF my dinner saving the other half for the next day. Asked the waiter to wrap my dinner. When I opened my leftovers the potatoes, vegetables and a steak bone I was saving for my dog had been discarded and I was left with a half a piece of meat! I was not happy. 2nd visit 2014-Read the menu on internet prior to arrival. Asked server the specials she did not offer the special listed on the internet (smothered rib eye steak & dessert). Ordered the rib eye steak special. At meals end had to ask for dessert! Ordered the Lamb Lolly Pop Appetizer and requested well done. They were extremely RARE!

  • "Everything was great except for the music! During dinner it was loud and not very good. Someone playing the piano would have been perfect! Sorry Louie to me your more of an upscale restaurant then trying to be a night club."

  • "Great place, friendly staff. I would've given a higher rating but when we looked over the bill the next morning we saw they charged us for a bottle of champagne we didn't receive. Nevertheless, we called and they said they would credit our card for the charge. An inconvenience, but overall nice experience. "

  • "A friend had forwarded a favorable review of Louie's a few months ago, and so I made sure to remember it for an appropriate occasion. I went here for a small birthday gathering, something beyond the ubiquitous (though excellent) burger and pizza joints found in the area. Hands-down, the food was excellent; for that reason alone, I would recommend Louie's. I had a Caesar salad to start with, and could tell right away that the dressing was high-quality. For an entree, I had a petite filet mignon, and it was one of the best I've had in years, truly! Superb cut of meat cooked perfectly. Particularly if you're a steak fan, you should put Louie's on your list."

  • "I brought my mother here for her 60th Birthday. The place was great. At first I had crossed this place off of the list, but I'm glad that I decided on it. the food was excellent. It was worth every penny. The food was great, the staff was friendly, and the live band was awesome. The only thing that I did not like, was probably the close proximity of the other tables. I had a party of 5 and we were in a back next to a staircase. They should probably consider taking a few tables out to make it more comfortable. The food was spectacular, my prime rib of beef au jus was phenomenal and cooked exactly as I asked, I was not expecting the cut to be as big as it was, but I'm glad, because it has been 2 days and I have just finished it."

  • "When encountering the restaurant, it's in a mini mall connection- looks small. Once you walk in its beautiful, quiet and the jazz music is soothing! Our waiter immediately introduced himself, very nice and very courteous! The special selection for the day was so hard to choose, it all sounded delicious! We received our salad and soup first and by far very good! Dinner was the best part, every bite was delicious. I rate Louie's a 10, the atmosphere is soothing and quant, the service is astounding, and the food is beyond my expectations! Highly recommend!"

  • "Chop houses of this quality are usually found down town but not Louie's! This was or first time dining here and the experience was excellent!! I order the rack of lamb that was cooked just right(could have a tad bit more seasoning) and my husband ordered the bone-in rib eye that was good. Service was great and ambiance was cozy.So overall wonderful evening."

  • "Appears to be an upscale restaurant but falls short. Ordered a bottle of chilled white wine which was left at the table without being keep chilled. The stuffed mushroom appetizer was a few small mushrooms with a slice of sausage on top smothered in cheese. My entree was the BBQ ribs with garlic mash potatoes which I had to return because the ribs were dry and had no flavor, and the garlic mashed potatoes had so much garlic that I could not eat them. The waitress and the host were accommodating and replaced my entree with a filet which was very good. Desert okay. My wife had the surf and turf which was good. To expensive for all around experience."

  • "We were very pleasantly surprised by the amazing dining deals, the food was delicious and outstanding service. There was also a live entertainment. We had the crab cake appetizer which was delicious. My wife had sea bass and I had a bone in New York strip steak. We both thought the food was extremely good. We will definitely return in the near future."

  • "Server was fair. Caprese app was bad. Shishkabob app was raw. Salads were like you would get at a bad wedding reception. Petite filet was not a quality piece of meat. Also 'market price'? For meat??? $36 for a petite filet. Dessert tasted like they got it from Jewel next door. Awful. Save your money go to Tuscany or Wildfire! 100 times better for the same price!!"

  • "My family and I have gone many times to Louie's Chophouse and have always had a fantastic meal. No matter what we order, the food was delicious, the service was superb, and the atmosphere was exceptional. We meet friends there frequently and have never had a bad experience. I don't know how the restaurant continually surprises me with its great service and friendly wait staff, but it does. We will keep going back time and time again."

  • "Each time we have dined here it has been marvelous. This time was no different. We had requested a seat by the fireplace. They honored our request , the food and wine were great and we of course will return. This is our place. The ambiance service and food rival the downtown steakhouses without the bother of the drive and valet parking proved."

  • "My wife and I went to Louie's for Valentine's day dinner. Upon arrival, the parking lot was packed and there were people just inside the door... the place was hoping. A doorman/valet was at the door to greet us. We were quickly received and because we were early for our reservation, we went to the bar. The bar was crowded, but the bartenders did a good job of getting to everyone. There was live music in the bar area, which carried throughout the restaurant at a nice noise level. At our table, our waitress was fantastic. The good was very good, atmosphere was nice for a date-night dinner. A bit pricey for the neighborhood, but for a nice place the bill was as expected. I'd recommend Louie's to anyone looking for a nice restaurant for a date."

  • "I made a reservation for 5 and received a confirmation by email and on the way there I called and it went to voicemail. When my guest and I arrived we found out Louis was closed due to the weather. I got a call back from them the following day saying they decided to close around 2 when the owner was there however your website as well as theirs did not amend your automated answering machines. It was embarrassing to show up there with my clients only to have it closed. We ended up at 115 Bourborne St. had a great meal, great service and they bailed me out because of your lack of professionalism."

  • "This is one of my favorite south surburb steak house. But this time we were a little disappointed. We always order the baby octopus as an appetizer. The octopus is grilled and marinated in an olive oil with some herbs. One of the best anywhere except this time the octopus was overcooked, with some being burnt and all being very dry. My porterhouse steak which I ordered medium was overcooked. It did have a nice flavor but with no red or pink center. My wife said her fillet had no flavor. The server was very friendly. I rated it average for this visit and in the past would have rated it higher. I will come back, but expect a little better quality then we got. The two steaks, the apetizer and two premium beers came to $118."

  • "this place has a problem that we confirmed with our second visit that is easily fixed but for me not worth paying for. The lack of seasoning on all their dishes is to the extreme. The quality and preparation of the food is very very high but the lack of flavor destroys the dish. My steal was cooked to the perfect temperature but lack of salt and pepper was evident. I ordered a horseradish crust to see if that improved the flavor from last time. The crust was perfectly browned and look quite appetizing till you tasted it. All the flavor you could taste was some butter and unseasoned bread crumbs. My girlfriends pasta dish was cook nicely, good donenesss on the pasta juicy chicken, and a nice sauce. Again there was no flavor to be found."

  • "I decided to take my wife wife to Louie's Chophouse for her birthday on 1/11/14. We were greeted with a smile and quickly seated. That was the end of good service. It took 10 minutes for someone to come to the table after several times I tried to ask the extraordinary amount of waiters and waitresses if someone could wait on us. We ordered drinks but we had to ask for bread. The customers who was seated after us was quickly waited on. They received bread without asking. When the waitress did finally come over. We ordered our food and It took almost 35-40 minutes for our food to come out. The food was sub par.It was as though we were invisible. The service was sub par. I will not be returning for a while.I am highly disappointed."
