It’s definitely sad that we were in town for a convention from Atlanta and we didn’t even get to try the food. We waited for over 15 minutes once we sat down and ordered our drinks and still nothing. Everyone around us was getting served...More

Lou and Mickey’s is not an inexpensive place to dine, their wine prices for example have steep mark ups. That being said they are a dining experience, they have a great ambiance with old wood paneling and leather on the walls. The service is good...More
