This place never disappoints. The food was perfect, My wife and I had a steak, which was cooked to perfection. We purchased our own wine as the corkage fee is only ten dollars. We frequent this place at least once a month and it gets better each time.

Enjoyed the atmosphere!
Great food, excellent service, good location in the heart of the gas lamp district. Noise level was a bit high the night we went because the place was packed but overall it was a great experience. We went back the next night to try a different dish!

My first experience a few
My first experience a few years ago was great and that's why I decided to take my Love for Father's Day. He and the childre all enjoyed themselves and he said that he would return but he would have to be real hungry...meaning the portions were great in size which is a wonderful aspect and the price is not too expensive either. Had a wonderful afternoon!

I've been to Lou & Mickeys a number of times and it's always a great experience. The service is very good and the food is excellent. It's not cheap but it's worth the price.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was our first time trying the place, and it was amazing all around!! We have been raving about it and for sure plan to come back. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.

Melt in your mouth steak experience
Staff was very attentive, knowledgable, and friendly. The bone in filet was out of this world. The jumbo crab cakes were worth the second order - delicious. I'd definitely come back here next time I'm in the area.

I have been to Lou and Mickey's
I have been to Lou and Mickey's at least 5 times in the past year. Every time has been wonderful, fun, energetic and the best food in town. The food is always delicious, hot and exactly what I expect from a well established restaurant. I will return soon and would recommend to anyone visiting San Diego's GasLamp District.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lou and Mickey's is one of my favorite steak restaurants in San Diego and I dine there every time I visit S.D. I was there on the evening of July 4th and the service was not quite up to par. It was a bit busy and our waiter was rushed. My steak and side dishes were very good although the steak was not the most flavorful. All in all though, it was still a pleasant evening and I will return.

I have been here for my last two anniversary dinners........will be back for my thrid. My wife and I truly enjoy Lou & Mickey's !
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really enjoyed everything(atmosphere, food, etc.) about this restaurant. Definitely hits the spot in San Diego!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
they pride themselves on service - it's impeccable! and the food is impeccable - always fresh seafood and all their food is delightfully cooked to perfection. well worth the money!!! great location in the gaslamp and never a dull moment if you dine on the patio - always something interesting going on!
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server, Michael, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, and couldn't have been more helpful. My wife & I started off with two different appetizers, crab bisque for me, vined-ripened tomato and burrata for her. We shared two sides, sautéed mushrooms and corn, and we both ordered the 8 oz. filet mignon, served with béarnaise sauce. Lou & Mickey's is a San Diego institution, and has been since 1945. Located right at the beginning of the Gaslamp District, and just two blocks from Petco Park, if you're a lover of fine steakhouses then this is one place that should not be missed!

Excellent, Highly Recommend
I made reservations for this place for our wedding night...ordered flowers to be pre-delivered and asked the restaurant to suggest a good bottle of champagne to be chilled when we got there. All was taken care of, and we had a great experience...we walked right in and the table was set up...made me look like a hero to my husband. Friendly, attentive waitress went out of her way to make us feel welcome, congratulated us, and really made it a great experience. The oyster bar selections were fresh and excellent, and the specials that we had...lamb and steak...were both cooked to perfection. Overall, one of the best places we have gone as a couple. We really enjoyed this place, and will go back the next time we are in San Diego.

Lou & Mickey's Hits It!
Good food, good service, good location on the edge of the Gaslamp! Far enough away from the noise and bustle, but close to everything, including Petco Park, which makes this the perfecrt place for a good meal before the ball game. Hearty American cuisine, with an emphasis on fresh seafood and steaks is hard to beat.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
In from New York City
Food and service was outstanding. Our waiter Micahel was very courteous and knowledgable about the menu and wine list. Enjoyed experience very much. I'm coming back next time in town.

Best Steak and Seafood Restaurant
Many steakhouses in San Diego.. but, without fail whenever we go to Lou and Mickey's it never disappoints. From Quality of food to service to
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great! Great! Great!
Lou & Mickeys is a true gem. Great steak and seafood house along with a very good wine selection and very courteous, knowledgeable, professional yet down to earth staff.

We went to Lou and Mickey's
We went to Lou and Mickey's for a special occasion. The staff was fabulous. They helped make the evening fantastic and memorable. The food was delicious and we would go back in an instant. Great location and great time. We would highly recommend this restaurant!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
I cannot say enough good things about Lou & Mickeys in San Diego. My wife and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary and our dinner at L&M's topped off our evening just perfectly. The staff was wonderful and Brian the GM took a personal interest in our evening. The food was amazing and the service impecable. We can't wait to visit again!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Salmon and the tuna were excellent! The service was fast.. and also the cheescake was.. wow!

Steak AND Seafood
Everyone has been telling me about Lou and Mickey's for years and I'd never been. Went the other night with an old friend and had a fantastic meal of Oysters, roasted asparagus and a giant cowboy steak - AMAZING. The wine list was excellent and not all $100+ bottles, the service was excellent and it was just a great experience. Go hungry! I only wish I tried it sooner...

Few Hiccups but Great Steaks
Bartender could not make a margatini, didn't have the agave. One person ordered a steak with blue cheese crust, but it came without the crust. No apology made for the mistake, they just brought melted blue cheese in a cup when reminded. Other than that, the meal was excellent. Mussels, oysters were fresh and flavorful. Chef knows how to prepare Pittsburgh Style and gets it perfect! Reasonable prices. Friendly service, albeit the minimal hiccups, we were treated very well. Nice interior ambiance and there is patio dining if you wish to see the hustle and bustle of Gaslamp and hear the train pass by. Reasonable prices, nice quality beef.
The ice cream is really fantastic!! Would definitely return.

San Diego Suprise
We had a great dinner, succulent oysters, and Adam our waiter is great. We want to go back.

This place was great.
The service was spot on. Our waiter was well educated on the menu. The food...Outstanding. We go to San Diego quite a bit, this is a place we plan on revisiting every time. We had the bone in filet - delicious.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was there on a very busy Sunday night, Labor Day weekend. Our server, Joe, was fantastic!!! My mom's husband and my best friend had never been there and were very happy!!! Everyone loved their dinner, especially my mom's husband who had the live Maine lobster. The only slight critical bit would be that my steak, the special Porter House, which I split with my mom, was a tiny bit less tender than I expected. Not bad by any stretch, just not as good as last time... Over all it was a very fun, and delicious night!!!
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came here for my boyfriend's bday. He wanted steak...boy did he get it, he loved it, best steak he ever tried, I had a bite, I'm not a steak girl and I loved it too! Told them ahead of time we were going for his bday and they brought him a card which was sweet and then let him pick a desert, he picked the vanilla bean creme brulee, omg! Freakin delicious, still talking about our dinner. Our waiter was great definitely look forward to going back for another special occasion
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Several of us were in town for a convention all week. This place had several good reviews, so we thought we'd give it a try. We sat outside dinner. It's on a busy corner, so it was good for people watching. Good menu selection. Everyone has a nice time.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food and service. waitress
great food and service. waitress made suggestions and was very attentive.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took a chance....... and scored!!!!
I did it simple. I looked up the best steak in the Gas Lamp District. Lou and Mickies was #3 i think. One reviewer said it was a bit less stuffy than the others. We were casual this weekend so we gave it a try.
I will sum it up like this; Food was awesome, I got the Cowboy steak and it was one of the best I have ever tried. Side were plentiful and more than enough to share. Order the mac n cheese!!!
The service was top notch, i'm upset that I don't remember my servers name to commend her on the service, but she was on top of her game. We didn't have to ask for anything.
The atmosphere reminded us of a Steak house in Manhattan. Relaxed and comfortable. Overall, a wonderful dinner and experience. We will definitely return!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came for My boyfriend's birthday at 9pm on October 6. Our waiter was wonderful, the food was great, and everyone had an awesome time!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
All round outstanding experience !
Went with a group of seven colleagues on business. Service and ambience were welcoming and comfortable... Very busy but still attention to detail. lobster bisque was OK... Not the best I'd ever had. However, the scallops were a total home run!!!!! the absolute best I'd ever had.... And those sentiments were shared by all five of us who had them. A pricey evening... But well worth the money.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lunch was super - great experience
Had a lunch meeting with my cousin to introduce him to my girlfriend ... was great ... food was excellent and service was remarkable ... Cindy MGR ... attentive and interested ...noise level great ... ambiance ... very good ...sat @ front table

Great Birthday Dinner
For my birthday again this year we went to Lou & Mickeys. It is one of my favorite places for the high quality of the menu, the friendly and attentive service and the old style ambiance of the room. We had a great dinner topped off with a birthday card and dessert that wished me a happy birthday. I highly recommend Lou & Mickeys.

Great for convention Lunch
Great for convention Lunch break accross the street. Big salads are enough to share for two!
Good place to get caught up with business colleagues or sit outside and enjoy the San Diego sunshine! Esp for the northerners!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dined at Lou & Mickey's for my husbands 30th birthday. The food was great, but the service was truly stellar. They went out of their way to make his birthday a special occasion. They offer free corkage, which was great for us as we had some nice bottles we wanted to enjoy with our dinner. We had some oysters from the raw bar to start (excellent) and steaks and sides for dinner. You have to try the scalloped potatoes and the chocolate cake. What a great experience.

San Diego October 2013
A great place to dine. It's at the beginning of the Gas Lamp District, directly across from the convention center. Parking Structure one block away at $1 per hour. A lot better than the open parking lots nearby.
Though owned by a seafood company, a great place to have some steaks. The food was excellently prepared and the seating was spacious enough so your not in other tables' conversations. Great size portions of sides to share with another. They also have a great selection of crab and other shell fish on their menu.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
For meat and fish true lovers
Took some cistomers out and everyone highly appeciated the quality of the food. Both fish and meat dishes were a true pleasure to have. The wine list provided an excellent variety of wines at a reasonable price
Would definitely recommend
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food, service, and ambience is always great at Lou & Mickey's! Filet mignon is fabulous!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful meal! Excellent presentation of the seafood platter! VERY attentive service! Also, very accommodating for this large party!
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a small group of 6 and our waittress was awesome. She was very efficient but never overbearing. The food was great. I would definintely return on a future visit to the area.
10/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great place for client dinner
Had a great time taking a client there on Sunday night. Good location when you are staying at one of the bayfront hotels - easy walking distance from the Hilton and Marriott Marquis.
Waiter was spot-on, cool, helpful, and offered the right amount of attention - i.e., when my client and I were in a deep discussion, he was nowhere to be seen, which is good!
The food - I love South African lobster tails, and they were awesome at this place.
Wine menu - very solid. We both had seafood, so we were in the mood for a nice Chardonnay with some butter tones - seeing Rombauer on the list, you know you can't go wrong.
Only item that did not meet expectations was the crab bisque soup. This version is more brothy, less creamy.

Good for convention goers
Good steak, excellent oysters, fair wine list. If you are in San Diego for a convention, this great place is a no-brainer.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
classic steak house
If you want a place that you can actually hear yourself talk and sit in comfort, even elegant surroundings, Lou & Mickey's fills the fill. The fish and chips was delicious. Didn't try the steak.

An Excellent Last Minute Decision
A group from a conference I was attending decided at the last minute to go out for dinner in the Gaslamp District together. Some quick online research pointed us at Lou & Mickeys, Open Table secured the reservation for 8 and we were seated within the hour...albeit with modest expectations. How good does a restaurant really need to be when its across the street from a convention center and down the road from a ball park?
As soon as we walked in we knew we'd been undersold. The cold seafood display was gorgeous (urchins!), the greeting was fantastic and the service and meal that followed was far more satisfying and entertaining than any of the usual corporate suspects (Ruth's Chris, Mortons, etc). Eat at Lou & Mickeys. You'll love it.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Highly recommended. Was doing a trade show across the street, ran over at 11:30 and was out by noon.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I dined at Lou and Mickey's this past Saturday evening and we had a most enjoyable time. Our steaks were superb and better than any of the renowned steakhouses we have dined at in the past. The service was also excellent and our waiter, Brian was most knowledgable in every aspect of our dining experience. We certainly hope to come back soon and we would recommend Lou and Mickey's to anyone!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fantastic Service and Food
I can't say enough about our recent trip to Lou & Mickey's. They are always consistent in their excellent service and food but they went above and beyond to make my boyfriend's birthday celebration extra special. Samantha and Cindy took such great care of everything. Our visit was perfect! Always a favorite when you are in San Diego -- especially great for large groups as the food selection is so extensive.
