A little pricey for the same old food. The staff are so busy flirting with each other, standing in their click they tend to forget they are there for a job. Has a full bar and a nice view of Cincy. I'm sure it's a hit or miss kinda place. Hopefully when it's warmer and you can sit outside it... More

This is the real deal. A selection of a burger, chicken, beef, portobello....etc...for a buck. Sides are extra but it's a deal.

Used to have great food and service, now the waitresses stand to.the side and make fun of the patrons. The menu has lost some great items like the tabouli humus plate..now it's a tasteless hummus and hummus plate. White soft bread more like nan. And the beef brisket sliders were more like fat strips like bacon. Deffinaty not smoked as... More

Really nice view of Cincinnati skyline. Can walk around Newport on the Levee before/after dinner and go to Aquarium next door. Good food and nice beer selection on tap.

Bar Louie is in a great location at Newport on the Levee. The view is great and you can see along the river, Great American ballpark, Paul Brown stadium and the Cincinnati skyline. The restaurant only had about 8-10 tables with people and it took about 30 mins for our food to come after being ordered. The server kept telling... More

Really didn't taste spectacular. Midway through the meal my wife said "I could have made a better sandwich at home". Good, but not worth going out for.

The standard pub fare and cold beer. There are sports on the TV's. This is good with buddies, or the wife if you're lucky like me.

Had dinner at the bar. Decent service, good Sauvignon blanc, had the pot stickers from Costco with the sauce in the packet. Salad shrimp wrap was a disappointment, not expensive good portion but the lettuce leaves were so small you couldn't wrap anything in them and the "Thai sauce" was loaded with sugar, salt and some weird spices, the after...

We always go to Bar Louie for lunch while we are in Newport. Love sitting outside and watching the boats/ and barges go by. Food is decent bar food/ higher $ than pub fare. Many options to choose from .. Nice menu. You won't be disappointed.
