If you’re looking for a casual, comfortable and family friendly environment- this is it. Inside is laid with tables and booths as well as ample bar seating also. It is very dark inside, although would be perfect for those wanting to watch a sporting game on TV as the walls are lined with them. On this particular day, we sat outside on the balcony as it was a perfectly sunny Fall day.
Our server was very friendly and polite and was very patient with me, with all the changes that I requested for my salad. Our meals were served in a timely manner and “almost” all at the same time. The only disappointment was that our waters weren’t filled up after we initially asked for waters for the table. Never mind, I guess it was partly my fault for not asking!
Very much a “pub grub” menu with lots of burgers, sandwiches, fries and wings on the menu, which made my Australian family super happy! American fare was what they were after. As for myself, I was chasing a salad and to my excitement there were plenty of options. I chose the “Chop Chop Salad” which was a MASSIVE combination of iceberg lettuce, bacon, tomato, avocado, carrot, blue cheese, onion, garbanzo beans, egg, cucumber and tortilla strips. I added grilled chicken, minus bacon and requested the dressing and cheese on the side.
My family ordered a variety of different burgers and sandwiches including the “Backyard BBQ Burger”, the “Bar Louie Burger”, the “Grilled Veggie Wrap” and the “BLTT Sandwich”.
Presentation was simple yet fine. Everything was just thrown onto “newspaper” looking parchment paper and although nothing fancy, Bar Louie was not the place I had expected anything else. No complaints!
I can safely assume that every meal was good due to the fact that none of us left much on our plates! Considering how big these meals were, this was a great compliment! It was obvious my salad was made from fresh ingredients as it was cold and crisp and the grilled chicken was cooked perfectly and lightly seasoned.
We were so delighted to see that every meal we ordered was massive in portion size. Realistically, we could have shared a meal between two- but not in my family!
Roughly $120 for 5 people, including 4 alcoholic beverages.
OVERALL SCORE 4/5
Would I return to Bar Louie, sure! There was nothing on the menu that I was desperate to come back for in a hurry but I would definitely return for their amazingly priced happy hours or stop in for a quick bite to break up my shopping day.
