As chain junk food palaces go, this one wasn't too shabby. Great burgers and fish and chips, a decent mojito, nice waitress. And no screaming kids. The equivalent of a good diner back home in NY. Two blocks from the Museum of Science and Industry,...More

Went here with my mom and sat in the bar. Ordered a beer and screwdriver. 20 minutes later we still had no drinks and waitress was ignoring us. Watched another person walk in and get served a beer within minutes. Went to bar and asked...More

Horrible food and service. The entire staff should be terminated as they are an embarrassment to a good chain of restaurants. We saw one table walk out (they were smarter than we were) and another table sit at an unbiased booth with a bowl of...More

The drinks and food are okay. Service could be better, what was surprising is that I was charged for a drink that spilled. I paid did not want to ruin time with friends, but typically if the drink is still full establishment provide another.

I've eaten at thousands of restaurants around the world and I've had bad food and bad service. But never have I been so upset about the service (or total lack of it) than at Bar Louie Hyde Park. My wife and I were visiting Chicago...More

I left the office early, so I decided to stop in for an early dinner and a drink. Though it was around 3:00 PM on a weekday, there was limited seating available. One of the few tables that had no one sitting at it had...More

Service can be pretty crappy. Lee is the best though very helpful and attentive. The food is decent. The drinks are pretty good if the bartender knows how to make it.

There is nothing special about this Bar Louie. It is not the type of bar where people are moving around and mingling. Everybody is seated either at the bar area or the tables. Most people seem to order food. The menu tries to be diverse,...More

Hyde Park
If you want to get a feel for quintessential South
Side Chicago, you have to make a stop in Hyde Park,
one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This
historic area is home to two of the city’s most
prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science
and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll
here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels
converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful

Yes, like any bar. However, if a family is going there to eat certainly the kids don't need ids.
