There was a lively feel in the restaurant which was busy when we visited, despite this the service was very good throughout and the food delicious, if a little pricey.

Great appetizers, thin crust pizza and cocktail choices. We enjoyed a late evening on the patio and wasn't disappointed at all. Nice fresh local ingredients and fair priced menu. Would definitely recommend

This restaurant had come recommended from our hotel as we were looking for ribs. Upon driving around town for other alternatives, we settled on Louie's. Greeted immediately and offered two possible locations to dine (bar area or back dining room). We chose the quieter back area and being a late dinner, were the only guests. They have a daily special at a set price for 3 courses (no ribs that day) but we chose the steak and the chicken frite dishes along with a starter crab cake and a spinach salad. Portions were generous and food cooked to perfection. Our server was very friendly and attended to our every need. As we took our stuffed bellies back to the hotel, there was only one thing I would like to suggest. The chefs were so fortunate to have a large kitchen; however, they communicated across it by yelling over the fans as they were preparing the good. The windows to the dining tproom were open and all the noise transferred loudly to the dining area. Easy to fix now that you are aware. Other than that, go there and find out for yourself.

We headed out to Nelson again for our yearly Kootenay road trip and once again, Louie's did not disappoint. Although we do have many amazing restaurants here in Calgary, it's very rare to find the combination of quality service and superior food at the price point we find at Louie's. Rob and his team always make us feel special every time we visit and it's always a treat to spend a little time in beautiful Nelson. Thanks again guys, keep up the good work and we'll see you next year!
