Great dinner!

I have just moved to Abbotsford from Vancouver and our real estate agent raved about Lue's Grill for it's comfy atmosphere and tasty dishes. He was right! I went for dinner with my dad and as soon as we walked through the door we were greeted with a friendly welcoming face to show us to our table; there was a warm glow from the lit candle and the cushioned chairs were especially comfortable. They have great drink specials, the service was prompt and our server was gracious and knowledgeable. I had the Cajun chicken fettuccini carbonara, the dish came out hot, the ingredients were fresh and it tasted heavenly! I highly recommend Lou's Grill, but come hungry because the portions are generous!

My experience at Lou's will always make me come back. The service was real and felt comforting like the servers actually wanted you to be there. It's nice and dimly lit and the music isn't too loud. Unfortunately I sat facing the sun outside, so I was squinting my eyes a little. The server sat us down and asked us for drinks. My drink (long island) was good, just a tad to strong for my liking. The food was fantastic and I was so glad I decided to go there to eat. Definitely recommend the Jack Daniels BBQ Burger! All together it was a good experience and I can't wait to go back.

I believe that Lou's bar and Grill is a very nice place and has amazing ambiance. The mood is just right and the staff are very friendly an upbeat. The drinks are especially good my favorite is the raspberry mojito. It was a great time with friends. Also has a very outdoor patio. All in all it was a great experience.

I enjoyed my night out at Lou's, the burger I had was delicious, and served very well. I really liked the service, our waitress was very humorous and kind, I really appreciated that the waitress did not come around every few seconds like most restaurants, although she was quite personal and pleasant when she did. We were seated on the deck and I love the atmosphere around there, it was a very relaxing place to enjoy dinner with my friends.

My experience at Lou's grill was probably the best experience I've ever had at a restaurant. The food and drinks were fantastic. I felt like the waitress was doing everything in her power to make our dinner perfect. I love the feeling of going to a restaurant and feeling like as if I'm in a lodge in the woods! 10/10

I visited Lou’s Bar & Grill about a month ago and I can honestly say I had an overall pleasant experience. To eat, I ordered the crispy chicken sandwich. It was very tasty, however it was much too large to eat as a normal sandwich so I had to eat it with a fork and knife. It would have been just as good without the bread because the chicken was perfectly crispy on the outside and juicy in the middle. On the side were just regular fries that I was barely able to even start eating after having some of my sandwich.

To drink, I had a regular Caesar. It was delicious and came with lots of garnishes which I LOVED. The service was also very efficient. Our waitress was friendly and I at the time, I was considering applying for employment at Lou’s so I asked her how she liked working there and she said she really enjoyed it.

Overall, it was a good experience and I would recommend Lou’s Bar & Grill to my friends and anyone else who’s looking for definitely get what they pay for and more.

I went to Lou’s grill for the first time yesterday and immediately it was a great experience. The host at the front was super friendly and inviting and sat us immediately at our table. We sat on the patio one of the nicer patios I’ve seen, nice and private, and the atmosphere appeared lively. Shortly after the server came over and grabbed our drink order and following our food order, also very friendly. My friend and I ordered the B.L.T.C which was amazing along with the chicken stir fry that I also very much enjoyed. I noticed how much the girls worked together to keep everything moving along smoothly drinks were constantly full which I appreciate not having to ask and servers taking anticipative. From beginning to end it was a great experience and wouldn’t hesitate going back.

Several months ago my boyfriend and I dinned at Lou’s Bar & Grill and had a great experience. All the service provided was excellent; from the warm greetings of the hostesses, to the great hospitality of the servers. The restaurant was very lively and upbeat which made it fun and enjoyable. We also noticed the very cool and unique abstract paintings on the walls, which added to the lovely setting. The music also added to the lively atmosphere which was nice. The best part of our experience was the mouth-watering cuisine from your menu of endless "scrumptiousness". I ordered the rib and steak with garlic bread, salad and fries, which was beyond delicious. Since I decided to get something that had a lot of variety, my boyfriend opted to get the famous nachos which left us looking forward to our next dining experience at Lou’s Bar & Grill. All in all, our dining experience was the cherry on top of our day. The service was impeccable, and the cuisine was all-star.

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!

I went to Lou’s Grill on a weeknight with my boyfriend and although it was relatively busy we were greeted with smiles and were seated right away by enthusiastic staff that was quick to bring us menus and take our drink orders. My boyfriend enjoyed 2 Stellas that were on special. Our server was super friendly, attentive and brought out our food and drinks very quickly. We shared the 3 cheese garlic bread appetizer and the blackened Cajun chicken sandwich (since it was a generous portion) which were both excellent and made with quality ingredients. The atmosphere inside is awesome with a wood interior, fun music, and great decor making for a great overall ambiance. However, I did find that it began to get a little too dark inside as it got darker outside. Overall, I would recommend Lou’s Grill to anyone who is looking for amazing food and drink, fast and friendly service, and a great atmosphere!

I am a frequent customer at Lou's Grill and it is not just the delicious food such as the nachos (Please Note: This plate is piled with delicious toppings that is enough for me to share with 3 other friends!) that keeps me coming back. I do not keep coming back because I LOVE the blue cheese caesar salad which is, suffice to say, a unique flavourful approach to a classic salad, Yum. It is not only because of the fantastic drink selection and the tempting weekly drink specials. The true beauty of an establishment like Lou's is the atmosphere. At Lou's you get to relax and enjoy the company of good people. The staff are calm and happy as well as attentive. A place like Lou's is more then just good food and drinks, it is the enjoyment of life's many pleasures.

I visited Lou's about a week and a half ago along with my boyfriend and a friend of his. The hostess was friendly and greeted us right away. We requested to sit out on patio to enjoy the sunshine as it was super gorgeous outside.
As we had recently eaten, we just ordered the spinach and artichoke dip to eat as a snack. It was delivered quickly, was delicious, and disappeared quickly. I ordered a Sleeman Honey Brown beer, my boyfriend ordered a Stoli Caesar, and his friend ordered a couple different cocktail drinks to try (a Pimm's cup and Lou's lemonade). My boyfriend was not a big fan of the prawn but said the Caesar itself was very good. His friend said his favourite of the cocktails was the lemonade.
As I work in a restaurant as well, I always find myself scrutinizing the service at other restaurants I visit and make mental notes of what I like and don't like for my own use. One thing I remember noticing was the teamwork between servers. For example, the server who took our drink orders was not the same server who delivered them, but they still came quickly and were delivered to the right people. All of the servers were good looking ladies.
I think my favourite part of my visit there was the ambience. It reminded me of being out in a fancy cabin somewhere away from the city, and as I'm originally from Vancouver I found it very relaxing and wished we could've stayed longer. Unfortunately we had other things we had to do right after.

I personally have no complaints about my visit to this restaurant, and look forward to visiting again soon with more of an appetite to try out more of the food. My boyfriend has been here many times and tells me a lot of the food he has tried is amazing, especially the pasta, Reuben sandwich and seafood stir fry.

I will be recommending this place again next time my friends and I are looking for somewhere to eat.

Review of Lou’s

Every time I’ve gone to Lou’s its usually absolutely packed making parking was difficult to find. Usually, I’m greeted by someone as soon as I walk in, but there have been a few times I’ve had to wait a few minutes. I then usually have to wait another couple of minutes as someone clears a table for me and my group. I don’t mind the wait because I know the drinks and food would be worth it.

The atmosphere inside is great if you’re looking for laid-back kind of place. The music is a mix of popular music and old school classics. There is a section at the front of restaurant with very comfortable, oversized leather chairs. These chairs are great if you just want to sit back and relax, but not so great if you want to talk to the person across the table because you sink right into them.

Depending on the time and size of group you have the service can vary there. I have found that smaller groups (2-4 people) receive more attention from the server, but then with larger groups, the server tends to neglect them a little more and let their drinks go completely empty before she comes around again. If I were put in that situation, I would spend more time with the larger group and not try to rush them in their ordering.

The food and drinks at Lou’s are consistently delicious! They have a large food and drink menu, with something for everyone. The food portions are large enough to fill even the hungriest person. The last time I went, I wanted something light and ordered a side Caesar salad and the three cheese garlic bread (which smelt absolutely delicious!). On their own, the two items were very delicious, but combined together it was a little too much garlic for my liking (I know for next time). Along with the fantastic food, the drink specials are equally fantastic. Their drink specials are inexpensively priced (around $5 or less per drink) which is fantastic if you want to try something new and not spend a lot of money. Also, the drinks are not watered down like some other places I’ve been to. My personal favorites are pitchers of long islands, deep blue martinis and purple haze martinis.

They have yet to disappoint me at Lou's grill. Food is always great, steaks cooked to perfection and can't beat the prices. My last visit i had dinner feature steak and crab its availible everyday and it was the best meal i have had in a long time. Amazing patio to wind down after work and will have left overs for lunch always because the portions are HUGE. Love the music selection and how the employee are always smiling. I can tell its a great place to work because they all seem happy to be there. Sunday funday is my favorite !!!!!!because their entire weekly drink specials are all on special. I'm always shocked when I get my bill, drink prices can't be beat, especially with the quality of them with so many garnishes, fresh fruit yum. Best ceasers ever, and a patio that I can smoke on while drinking them. Mouth is watering writing this. Think I'm going to head over there now for a drink and dessert :)

Everything about this place is awesome! The food is incredible, the selection is amazing, the building is really cool, almost like a cabin! Service if nice & friendly! This is quite possibly one of, if not the best bars in the Lower Mainland! I have taken a lot of people to this bar, & everyone raves about how great it is! It's hidden in an area you wouldn't expect to see a bar in, so if you think you are lost, you might not be!

Food at Lou's has always been solid. The burgers are great and the pastas are huge. Nachos are amazing. The drinks are strong and well worth the price. Sunday's are a great night to grab a seat on the patio with some friends and take advantage of all the weekly specials.

Service can be hit or miss however. I've had amazing servers to mediocre to absolutely horrible. If it wasn't for the food and the great atmosphere on some nights, I probably wouldn't come back after some of the services I've had.

Overall, a great choice for drinks and food with some friends, especially in Abbotsford.

I heard about Lou’s through my uncle figured I’d give it a try with my friends. Being a student I thought it was a little pricy at first, until I got my appetizer. The meal portions are big enough for two people, giving great value for your money. They have a great atmosphere that seems suitable for family dinners and a night with friends. I really enjoyed the food and friendly service. I am looking forward to a return visit, definitely not disappointed.

My last experience at Lou's was very good. The food and drinks are always made exactly how I like them and the service is great too! Lou's is the only place I have found that offers pitcher's girls will like too rather than beer being the only option. I love that even in the winter if you want to be outside the patio is heated well enough that you are comfortable throughout the entire experience. The atmosphere at Lou's is perfect for one on one date nights, as well as going out with a group
