It is conveniently located near the conference center. Prices were ok for the area. Service was fine. I was there for lunch. Had fish and chips which I would not recommend. The batter on the fish reminded me of eating pancakes.

I knew nothing about this restaurant before taking my clients there so I was a little nervous. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The meal was served in a very timely manner and was quite good. The cost was reasonable and I recommend it highly.

I suppose the location on 5th Avenue explains the cost of the meals and drinks on offer, but the location is great as is the ambience. We had a very helpful waiter who seemed to take pity on this party of Brits who were being very careful as to what was being ordered. The steaks being delivered to other tables... More

Visited Lou and Mickey's while catching up with a friend I hadn't seen in 5 years. We each ordered a drink and appetizers (an iced tea is $4 and coconut shirmp appetizer is $15 for 6 shrimp). The food was ok, but over priced really for what it is. My biggest upset was the server's attitude. At first, she was... More

Location is great but prices and service do not match. Soup and salad with a glass of wine was $50, expected. Did not expect to have to flag my waiter to get my check and only see him once after food. Too many better nearby options.

Key Lime Pie, Creme Brulet and ice cream sunday were all delicious. Was approximately $44 for 8 oz filet mignon and everything was al a carte. Very good! Right at entrance of Gas... More

Many people seem to give this place 4 stars. I give it 5 stars because of a certain je ne sais quoi. There is an "it" factor that is sublime, and only grabs you after a couple sips of the house draft pilsner, Trumer. Have a pint of ice cold Trumer and the Seared Sesame Crusted Wild Yellowfin Tuna, and... More

Food was nice. I have had better Halibut and Chardoney wine elsewhere. Service was interuptive during conversation, and lastly felt rushed out the door.

Downtown upscale restaurant look & prices w/casual atmosphere. There's indoor & outdoor seating. Go figure. Over still a nice restaurant, very good for socializing and people watching. Bar drinks are very good they didn't hold back on the liquor
