Just returned from here and I can honestly say I just had the best steak I’ve ever eaten. I had the 10oz fillet mignon and although it was pricey at CAD55, plus another 6 for the peppercorn sauce it was a superb cut of meat...More

Really good tasty steaks! Reasonably priced, good choices of side dishes offered. Great service offered from the time we stepped in, they were even kind enough to turn down the outside music so we could hear each other. Great view of the lake. Want a...More

Nothing to complain about here - two perfect steaks served on the little terrace at the front of the restaurant. Reasonable choice of wines to go with our food. Overall, the bill was a little higher than similar meals we'd had elsewhere during our holiday.

From the ambiance to the service, Louie's offers a relaxed atmosphere for fine dining. You want an exceptional steak, this is where you go. The staff bent over backwards at the last special occasion I attended in the lounge.

This is a steakhouse, but I had the cod. It was excellent. But the best part was the dessert. I had the cheesecake with raspberry sauce. Wow! Probably the best I have ever had. I highly recommend it.

Great service, delicious food, fabulous drinks and good wine list. It’s one of our favourite spots when we want yummy North American food or just a relaxing drink and appy before the movie. I don't think I have ever had a bad dish here.

I love a restaurant with great cocktails and an extensive wine list! All of our shared appies were delicious, especially the mushrooms. The service was excellent as usual. It's consistent and one of my favorite places to go!
