Great place, great location. Thanks to souschef Kyle, the ribeye was delicious and the apple cobbler with vanilla ice cream is a must. Splendid service thanks to Kara. Hope to go back soon for those scallops.

The dining room at Lou and Mickey's is well worth visiting. The tenderloin was perfectly cooked and the garlic mashed potatoes were phenominal ! We will be back this April to enjoy one of the best restaurants in San Diego.
