    My first visit. I found the atmosphere very casual yet the prices were more in line with a top-shelf restaurant. No bread served. Noise level is obtrusive. I will say that the shrimp and grits I had might be the best I have had. My wife had the pork ribs and they were perfect as well. They had some really good looking sandwiches on the menu. Good wine selection, but wine prices starting at $12 with most higher were out of line. What's the word? "Pretentious" comes to mind, but very good food.

    Best ever cocktail by far is the Julep Freeze! We also tried the Spa Day cocktail and it was very good. We started with the Hot Crab Dip and Parmesan Truffle Fries. The crab dip was amazing! We asked for extra bread to make sure we got every bite. The aioli that comes with the fries is also great. My husband and I had the Chicken Club Salad and it was good. Our daughter enjoyed the Shrimp Poboy & Dip. This is a very hip place with a lovely back patio with heaters for chilly evenings. The staff is very attentive. We will be back!

    Our server Chris was great to work with, very personable. We asked for recommendations for appetizers, and went ahead with her recommendations. The food, including the shrimp corndog appetizer was well-prepared and delicious, as were the fish tacos, oyster sandwich, and grilled cheese sandwich. Great assortment of cocktails as well.

    Delicious food, but we thought the appetizers were better than the entrees. And not the best service for the amount of money we spent there. Very busy even on a Monday night.

    Encourage the restaurant to explore ways to mitigate flies ... the open air concept is great... except when flies decide they like your table and food. Hated the fact that our otherwise exceptional experience was impacted by a fly problem. The waiter produced a "gluten free" menu when one of our guests inquired. Very responsive and engaging.

    We dined here Sunday for LSU Family Weekend 2021. Highly recommend!! Our server, Morgan, was the best! All of the staff were friendly and attentive. Love the table side s'mores and the cotton candy. The chicken and biscuits and rotisserie chicken were delicious as was the waffle. Not a single bad dish at our table! Great atmosphere!

    This was our first time at SoLou but we will be back. If for nothing else but for the atmosphere/ ambiance. We sat outside by heaters which was wonderful. My only suggestion is that the food needed more seasonings. I’m from South Louisiana so I’m accustomed to spicier foods. Not a show stopper tho. We will return

    Since it's opening I've been dying to get reservations here. I loved the location when The Rum House occupied the space and based on how booked it always is, I had very high hopes. After finally getting dinner reservations at a reasonable time it was.... Ok. It was probably the most "ok-ist" restaurant I've been to in a long while. Nothing was particularly "bad," the staff was friendly (although looked at us like we had three heads because we voluntarily adhere to masking in public, so there's that), and the food was all reasonably priced and tasted good. It just did not live up to the hype and really just seemed to be more of the same that you can get at less-busy places around town. I'd go back if invited, but probably wouldn't go out of my way. It reminded me a lot of P Beau's in Denham Springs, only much harder to get a reservation. For a similar, less crowded, and in my opinion better overall value for your time and money I'd consider Willies on Coursey or Jasmine's on the Bayou on Jones Creek (this one is significantly smaller but don't let that fool you, it's one of the best kept secret in EBR).
