We took a group of 8 and had a fine time. It is a little loud, but that is to be expected on a Friday night. The service was outstanding and the portions were huge. Everyone enjoyed their meal and we had a great time.

Just across the street from the Westin Hotel, Bar Louie's is a hot spot for lunch, dinner or drinks. The food is good quality, inexpensive and the drinks excellent. Try the Effin Good Cucumber Martini. The bruschetta with shrimp was an excellent choice as a snack to share.

We went Bar Louie's on an Anniversary weekend in the Woodlands. Good cocktails and bar food. Reasonable prices....the cool part is you can sit outside on the patio and take in the live music and the view and lots of activity on the inside. Good job.

Service was slow and spotty. Lots of beer choices. Basic bar type food with a large area for sitting outside.

Excellent beer, wine and drink options at happy hour prices. Several good happy hour priced appetizers. Many appetizers at regular price are very good and can make a meal.
