    The foods at Louie's is delicious It's that simple to say. We have been going there for around 12 years, and we have never been disappointed.On Saturday night I had their wonderful Garlic shrimp and linguini, and my husband had a huge prime rib. With the salad and bread it is hard to finish the large portions they serve. This time we went on a Saturday night, so it was noisier than usual. I really enjoy going on a week night when it is quieter. The lights are low and the servers are friendly and usually Louie himself is in the house helping out. The bar area is very nice, also and we have been there for drinks and piano music in the past. It is a great place for a celebration dinner.

    My dinner club of 4 ladies dined at Louie's on a Friday night and we were very pleased with our meals. Two of us had the pork chops and two of us had the lake perch special and we were all very pleased by the excellent service, generous portions, and delicious food. Frank Rossi entertained that night and he was great! We highly recommend Louie's and will definitely be back with our husbands!

    The atmosphere was very cozy and inviting with a bit of elegance. Service was great and the waiters were quite attentive. We were given time to enjoy our before dinner cocktails and each course without being rushed. I had a problem with my very large prime rib served in the same plate with the vegetable and potato, the juice from the steak ran all over everything making this a bit unappetizing. Separate dishes should have been provided for the bread and the appetizers. I would return. The food was very good and the wine was excellent. The waiter failed to provide water regularly at first, but once I brought it to his attention, the glass remained filled.

    Group of 5 went to Louie's for the first time to celebrate a birthday. The food was excellent! Appetizers - lamb lolly chops were perfect, not overcooked and not undercooked. Fresh & tender clams casino. Steaks were perfectly cooked to order, ribs had a nice smoky flavor and not greasy. I highly recommend the French Martini. I see some reviewers complained about the strip mall setting, so what - you're not eating in the parking lot!

    This was definitly not the best meal I have ever had. Every component of my meal i.e. meat, potato, and vegatable had a sauce or marinade on it. A good steak (and it was a good steak!) should taste like a good steak, not the sweet sauce that was over it. The service was medicre at best.

    Louie's Chophouse is by and far the best restaurant in the South Suburbs of Chicago! The high quality steaks are always char broiled to perfection. The fish is always high quality and fresh, again, cooked to perfection. Apps are perfect, sides are fresh and tasty. No doubt,..this is an expensive restaurant, but, you get what you pay for! The service also,..always great! We go out to restaurants often and this one could even stand up to some of the great restaurants downtown!

    We live nearby and we really like Louie's. Try the King Louie platter for an appetizer. It has a little of everything: BBQ ribs, zucchini, grilled shrimp, baked mushrooms, and beef kabob. My wife had the filet with a horseradish crust and I had the Mediterranean chicken, both were excellent. Nice wine list great service and there was a piano player on the Friday night we were there.

    The times that we have enjoyed dinner at Louie's, we have never been disappointed. Our most recent visit, the server was attentive and friendly; the ribeye steak was prepared just the way it was requested. Overall, the king crab legs were very good but there were a few pieces that had a "fishy" taste. I would consider ordering them again - easy to eat and very meaty.

    So I took my wife on a shopping spree and ended up at Louie's for dinner. We had Alex as our server and did not need to call him for amything because he was right there. The man was courteous and very knowledgeable about the menu and drinks. We ordered the LoliChops and crab cakes for starters along with a few drinks and had the bone-in rib eye for dinner. I weigh a good 260lbs and could not finish my food. Everything was delicious. And we even got to meet Louie, the owner, who is as cool as the other side.of the pillow. Nice atmosphere, beautiful ambiance, great food and staff. This wasn't my first visit and it won't be my last. Definitely one of my favorite spots in the cut.

    The service is commendable - but the menu misleading; e.g., "honey mustard" description of sauce for Tilapia is not really honey mustard, but something else made up by the chef. The owners do care if the patrons like their food and will make necessary adjustments. Just ask about each item on menu "in advance" to insure a pleasant experience.

    We received a gift certificate, that is why we went here. Waitress was outstanding, but the rest just ok. Bread great, salad good but seriously for the prices, only one small cherry tomato on each of ours? Tuna, and steak for main meal, would of been great, but loaded with peppercorns so much even when scraping off as much as possible, it over powered the taste. Peppercorns are good but over kill. No reservations needed on Saturday at 5 PM, 75% empty.

    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!

    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.

    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.

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!

    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.
