I have eaten at Lou’s Bar and Grill multiple times with friends. Lou’s Bar and Grill has a great upbeat atmosphere for having dinner with your friends or loved ones. They have a great set up there, it is very modern looking and clean. All the employees are very welcoming, polite, and helpful. Lou’s Bar and Grill has awesome food it is always delicious and very filling. Lou’s is a very busy place so I found sometimes I will be waiting a little longer than other restaurants. I would recommend Lou’s Bar and Grill to anyone looking for a fun upbeat atmosphere to have dinner or drinks.

I have only been to Lou’s Grill a couple of times, but this place has yet to disappoint! My friends had been ranting and raving about Lou’s since we’d decided to go there for dinner. We made reservations for 8 but about 12 of us showed up – the waitresses had no problem accommodating our larger group and were adamant to give us more space! Very friendly. Even though we had multiple girls serving our table there was no confusion in drinks or food and each new guest was greeted promptly. A few of us had shared the blue chip nachos and they were delicious! They chips were very fresh and the variety of cheeses and toppings on them made this dish irresistible. As well, I had ordered a starter caesar salad – it was incredibly fresh and had the perfect amount of dressing, unlike most over-drenched caesars.
The atmosphere was different than I thought, the music was quite loud but I found it was something that I enjoyed. The patio is more covered than most but makes for a cozy feel. My friend’s meal was not as he ordered- it was on the incorrect bread and the bacon wasn’t crispy, he chose not to complain as it was not a big deal to him. I’m sure the staff would’ve corrected it easily if he asked!
The classic wood floors, attractive bar, variety of seating and decorative motif make your visit to Lou’s a memorable one. I would recommend this eatery to any and every one of my friends – although most have already recommended it to me! A fun and lively place to grab a bite to eat or for friends to catch up over a drink, definitely worth every moment.

Happy First and Second Timers

My best friend and I came in for dinner and both of us were pleased with the atmosphere. Good music that wasn't too loud and the decor was quite sophisticated. We were also happy with the service. We didn't have to wait too long for our food and our server was really on the ball with making sure we had everything right down to filling our waters regularly.

We both tried the Jack Daniels BBQ Bacon Cheddar Burger with added Mushrooms and we shared a cheese bread appetizer. I enjoyed the the feta cheese on the bread. Not something I have seen anywhere else. The sauce on the burger was good and the portion size was more than generous. I found the burger patty itself was bland, but I liked that it tasted homemade and not like a frozen cookie cutter patty. Over all it was a very nice experience and I would definitely come back!

I went to Lou’s Grill not too long ago and I just wanted to say I had a great experience. The lighting was perfect, not too light and not too dark. We were seated immediately and the server never let our glass be empty. I have only eaten their appetizers and they’ve all been more than satisfactory. Hands down, stoli ceasar is the best thing on the menu. I highly recommend visiting Lou’s Grill.

Came out here last friday for the lovely long island specials and really had a great time. Enjoyed the B.L.T.C with a side of caesar salad which arrived shortly after ordering, considering it being a busy friday night. Our server was extremely personable and friendly, making us feel very comfortable. I would recommend Lou's to any one looking for a tasty meal alongside good music and great drink specials.

Tonight my friend and I went to Lou’s Grill for dinner around 8:30pm, I always wanted to try the food there because from the look outside, the frame and the whole building is very unique, and just makes you want to go inside. It was very busy when we arrived there, the room was pretty much full of customers, from different age groups, different nationalities, but everybody was laughing and enjoying their food. The hostess who welcomed us was super friendly, she got us a table for two, it was a small table because all other tables were full. My friend tipped over the candle by accident, the hostess cleaned it up as soon as possible and offered us to change the table. We both appreciated the attitude of the hostesses who work there , they were very helpful and always have a smile on their faces, that just make everything better. We were chatting before our food were ready, I found that the environment at Lou’s Grill makes it easy for people to communicate, we both love the light inside and the awesome music, it just makes you want to have a good laugh with friends and enjoy the time (makes me wanna dance too haha). Finally our food were ready, my friend had the chicken sticks and I have the blackened cajun chicken, have to say that was such a big plate. The meat was cooked perfectly and I love the fries, we couldn’t eat all of them so we took it to go in the end, it feels like you can actually have two awesome meals by ordering once, haha. Anyway the food were amazing and we enjoyed the meal and had a really good time with the great service. I would defiantly come back again sometime and try the drinks too!

The Lou's Grill experience......

Last night my mom joined me for a meal at Lou’s Grill. We arrived around 7:30pm and we were promptly greeted by the Hostess. We were impressed at how knowledgeable the Hostess was with the daily drink specials. We enjoyed the warm atmosphere and attentive staff. It was difficult to decide what food to order since they have so many tempting items to choose from. I ordered the BTLC and my mom ordered the Bacon Mushroom Swiss Burger. We were amazed at how fast our food came out and at its great presentation. The food was hot, well portioned and tasted delicious. I noticed the staff cohesiveness and teamwork when I saw the Servers helping each other to clear tables, assisting one another with food orders/delivery and actively communicating with each other. The only thing I may have changed which was minor would have been the music above our table; it seemed very loud at times, making it difficult to hear each other and our server but overall, we had a fabulous night and recommend Lou’s Grill, so come check it out!! We plan to be back soon to enjoy Lou’s Patio!!!!!!!!

By far one of my favorite places in the Fraser valley! The food is to die for and not only are the portions huge but also very affordable. Nachos and burgers are always a hit here! The music is great and the cozy atmosphere makes it a place I love to come to with my friends. It's a great weekend hangout! The staff is always friendly and looking to please the guests. Can't say I have ever had a bad experience here! Definitely recommend trying this place out if you haven't already!

the food used to be fantastic! then they changed their kitchen staff and the food is still good, but nowhere near what it used to be. good place to go for dinner and drinks if you want to stay local. fairly dark, nice ambiance, outdoor patio is nice because you can smoke (unless they've changed it, haven't been in about a year). most meals are 15-25$ and worth the money.

I do not get out much but when I do I choose to eat at Lou's Grill. On a busy friday night the service is still at it's best. I had to wait only 5 minutes for a table for 16 people to open. The servers were fast and very helpful with pulling tables together setting everything up etc. The food was amazing I usually stick to salads or fries when i go out but instead I got pasta. It was probably the best pasta I had in a long time. I just had a pop to drink and the servers were wonderful making sure it was always topped up. My friends and I sat on the porch and enjoyed wonderful dinner and drinks. It was a perfect way to celebrate my friends 20th birthday. I would recommend eating at Lou's to anyone and everyone. I have never had bad service there. It is always exciting and everyone is so friendly! Its a great atmosphere and a great menu with so many choices! I look forward to going back soon! Congrats Managers and staff members on the hard work keeping it an enjoyable place to be!

As a food enthusiast and a woman with a hearty appetite I believe my overall best dining experience has come from Lou's Bar and Grill. Every place is not perfect or ideal and I can say I have had some slow service at Lou's but it will never stop me from coming back. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is superb. If you are looking for a high energy atmosphere and good company I suggest you go to Lou's just being there makes me want to be social and interact with people. The service is usually very prompt and diligent sometimes it can lack a little due to the busy nights. Meals and drinks come fast and even with how busy it can get they still maintain good customer service and look after you.
Going to Lou's I was seated fast and my drink came right away after hearing the specials. I always get the same thing every time because the food just gets better and better the Cajun Grilled Chicken and Prawn Taco Salad is my main dish at Lou's. With fresh lettuce at the bottom the multi-coloured tortilla chips covering the salad and including sour cream and guacamole. The prawns are so savory and spiced to perfection as well as the cut of chicken you receive, it is cooked in the same sauce as the prawns and has the same taste, all the flavours and textures of the food co-exist and work well complimenting each other. It is so much to each but I always make myself finish it because it's that good and packaging it up a to go would just make it soggy and a waste of something so delicious. So I suggest going to Lou's and making something of the night with great people.

Best restaurant experience

Lou's Grill is a great place for a meal out with family, friends, dates and is suitable for all age groups. The restaurant is a well established, cozy, classy and inviting environment. The hostess did a great job at making you feel welcomed. They had an abundant drink selection and a variety of virgin cocktails. I chose to go for the virgin mango margarita which was not a disappointment. For my meal I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich. The restaurant was pretty busy but the servers did an efficient job at getting your food to you. The sandwich came with a side of fries. I was thinking they'd taste like ordinary fries but they were probably the best fries I've had. The meals were a good size portion and prepared perfectly. The grilled chicken sandwich came on two pieces of a baguette which was a unique way of changing things up. The food was absolutely amazing with comparable prices. My experience was very pleasant and I'd recommend Lou's grill to anyone looking for a casual dinning experience, a more intimate date night, or any special occasion.

The Place to Be

My last visit at Lou's Grill was approximately a month ago and as usual, was a fantastic experience. Lou's Grill has always been my “go to” spot for a relaxing night out with some friends. This is because not only are the meals and drinks fairly priced, but the quality is outstanding. I am yet to eat something at Lou's that I don't love. This particular evening out at Lou's I shared the bacon wrapped scallops (which I order every time because they are absolutely amazing!) and for my main course I tried the short rib ravioli. The ravioli was rich, but not over powering and was added to my “favourites” at Lou's. The raspberry mojito is what I always drink at Lou's and it never gets old, it is fresh and light. Every time I have visited Lou's Grill, I have been promptly greeted by the great staff. The staff have always been diligent, helpful, and leave you feeling like you are truly their guest. Lou's ambiance is why I continue to be a customer. It is comfortable and cozy inside and out! Lou's patio, especially in the summer, is by far the best in town. Another thing I admire at Lou's is that you don't feel pressured, it is a relaxing and fun atmosphere. There is no feeling of being rushed or pressured by tacky sales tactics. The staff are polite and truly seem to love their job, and that is how you know Lou's is a great place to be.

Great Experience

I went to Lou's last night for dinner with a couple of friends and we loved it. As soon as we walked in we loved the ambiance of the place. The décor and atmosphere made us feel like we were in a warm and cozy cottage, a perfect place to go since it's so cold out. The selection of music was great and it was not too loud, so we were able to have a conversation without shouting across the table.
The hostess were friendly and inviting as we came in and our server was great. She was very attentive, sweet and helpful and at the end of the night I still remembered her name, Devon :)
I was warned about the portion size of the food, but I did not believe it until the food came out. It was HUGE! We called it "American size" LOL. The food was good, although, our mussels were just a little bit salty but everything was delicious. I'm a huge burger person and I loved the avocado bacon and cheeseburger. The short rib ravioli is definitely worth a try. We were also very surprised how quick our food came out, no complains there for sure! I enjoyed my cohiba and sangria, but the cohiba had a little too much pulp so I found it difficult to drink with a straw.
One thing I did not like about the place was that the tables were too close to each other. I found myself having to squeeze between the chairs at the table behind us when I went to the washroom. Speaking of that, I did notice the lock on one of the stalls did not lock properly which caused me to almost walk in on someone...ooooops!
Overall I would definitely go there again and bring friends or family. They have a huge menu selection, with many different types of food and beverages. Definitely worth checking out : )

I found myself visiting a familiar place today, Lou's Grill. I was
served a friendly server I recognized. She was pretty and outgoing
with my friend and I we shared the Calamari and the Jack Daniels Ribs
appetizers. The food came out steaming hot and the same delicious
taste as our last visit. The calamari was cooked to a perfect
temperature and the ribs were flavourful and falling off the bone. We
both drank Purple Haze martinis, my favorite drink on the menu to
satisfy my sweet tooth, our server was attentive asking to bring us
new ones at exactly the right time. We were seated on the patio around
5:45 so we could smoke. It was steady busy, we both happily noticed
the music which was loud enough to hear but not overwhelming, playing
a mix of our old and new favorite songs. Near the end of our meal the
patio was not busy enough to get a huge amount of attention, which
made it nice and private but not excluded. All in all, I had a great
experience at Lou's Grill; the customer service and food quality were
on point as usual.

My partner and I visited Lou’s Grill for brunch last October. The menu features an large array of food and drink options. Being big breakfast connoisseurs we both opted for the eggs benny. (mine with tomatoes, his the classic). Our breakfast arrived pretty quickly and the waitress saw to it that my coffee cup was always full. The food was hot and we both really enjoyed our meals. The server was fast but very friendly and attentive to our needs. The low lighting and rustic ambiance makes you feel like you are tucked away in your own corner. The replicas of the Group of Seven and Tom Thompson paintings are definitely a great addition, making the place feel truly Canadian.

The ambiance in my opinion is 10/10. I love the cozy, warm, friendly atmosphere. All the decor, the chairs and tables together create, like I said, a comfortable and warm atmosphere. As for the service, my friend and I were greeted instantly upon walking in the door by the front door hostess. She seated us and brought us water in a fast and efficient manner. Shortly after we arrived, we noticed a group of people sitting near us that we know and the hostess/server was happy to move us around so we could sit together. Our server was a little slow to take our order and the food was also a little slow to come out but my friend and I's food was great with no issues. One lady we were sitting with on the other hand, her order was brought to her with ham instead of bacon when she ordered bacon, and she also has a serious allergy to onions and there were onions on her food. The server didn't seem to try to rectify the issue, and when she had to rush out , her bill wasn't discounted and no manager was brought to the table to try to rectify the issue. All of our bills were brought out before we were done eating without asking if we wanted dessert or more coffee/drinks. Other than these issues, the servers and hostesses were all friendly, smiling, made friendly chit-chat with us and made sure our drinks were topped up consistently throughout the visit.

Quick Work Lunch

Submitted Monday, October 7, 2013 - 9:18am [Dine in]

I came to Lou's for the First time about 19 years ago, I have very fond memories of my friend and I playing house with our dolls upstairs and all the servers being so awesome and accommodating, even bringing our orders up there when that section was supposed to be closed off! I moved away from the Fraser valley, and only got to make it back to Lou's once or twice a year when visiting my dad. I made my way back to the valley though, and have had a couple (more recent) experiences at Lou's that I can Share! My dad and I were taking a lunch break from work in the summer, on a hot day and decided to go to Lou's, I love the atmosphere there, it feels so homey and inviting, and the color its painted outside if probably one of my favorite colors (on anything, for that matter) we sat on the patio and I was a little surprised to see that smoking was still aloud (pleasantly surprised ) I feel it adds to the atmosphere at Lou's,Its a place that makes everyone feel welcome. Our waitress was extremely sweet and welcoming, I ordered a water, my dad got a ice tea ( too bad we were working) the drinks took a little while to come out, but it was a busy summer day, but When they came the waitress was very attentive the service was perfect from there on out.I ordered the Cesar salad and added Cajun chicken breast to it. my dad ordered the pastrami Reuben sandwich with soup and fries. The portions were Huge, and everything was Delicious, my only ( very minor) complaint wold have been that the chicken was a little over-seasoned/overcooked in my opinion, but it was by no means inedible, and didn't ruin the great Cesar dressing and fresh romaine at all. My dad walked away full and happy with more food left in his take home than most places serve total ( and he is not a small man, nor does he have a small appetite)
