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 : )

My recent dining experience at Lou's Grill was excellent as usual. Dining at Lou's is always a treat, the hostesses and servers always make you feel welcome and make your dining experience as comfortable as possible. There is always someone with a warm smile to greet you as soon as you enter. Service is always quick; food comes in LARGE portions and is delicious! The chorizo Mac and cheese is a definite must try! For such a simple dish Lou's definitely delivers and elevates the flavour with their personal flair. The burgers are HUGE as well, and these portions allow you to bring home tasty leftovers so you can enjoy it twice! You will definitely not leave here hungry or disappointed.

The ambiance of Lou's also makes the dining experience more enjoyable with dim lights, music and comfortable decor and furnishings it puts its clientele at ease and feeling at home. As for the drinks the sangria, whether white or red, is never disappointing and the perfect girly drink! Not to mention there are great drink specials on all throughout the week, which are all available on Sundays! Lou's is definitely made an impression on me and I will dine here again :)

I went to Lou's Grill a few months ago now with my friend.
They were very busy and there was no one to great us at the door, the bartender noticed us walk in and greeted us as well as asked us how many. By then there was a hostess to formally seat us. I loved that even though they were busy the bartender went out of her way to greet us so that we felt welcomed as soon as we walked through the door. We were sat right away, told the specials and not long after that our waitress came over & took our drink order. My friend had a beer on tap, I had the raspberry daiquiri and it was delicious!! We both ordered the french onion soup to start. I had the Cajun Chicken Quesadilla and my friend had the Jalapeno Bacon Cheddar Burger. Both of these were very good and flavorful! Our waitress was on point and didn't miss a beat, as soon as she saw our drinks almost gone she offered more, she was constantly checking on us to make sure the food and everything else was good and that we were well taken care of. Overall I had a great experience, as did my friend. I will definitely be returning! The food, drinks and service were excellent!! If you haven`t yet checked out Lou`s Grill do yourself a favor and check it out, you wont be disappointed!!

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.

great hangout for all types
Submitted Monday, November 11, 2013 - 10:40am [Dine in]

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.

Closed due to alleged license and customer control problems. Now part of the Townhall Public house group. Stopped by last Sunday and found the service, food, atmosphere to be pretty good. Smart staff, caring manager, and knowledgeable staff. Food prices were fair. The neighbourhood seems to be much better than my last visit two years ago. Very crowded and we found one of only two empty tables. That's a good sign. We were told they have been open for only three weeks.

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)

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!

Great Food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere, And most of all Great Prices. Came here with a group of friends to watch the mayweather fight and was blown away. We had the Nachos and Chicken Wings, and both were phenomenal. The service was exceptional, even though the place was filled wall to wall our drinks were never empty. Best of all those drinks were ice cold, and were crazy cheap. Pints of Sleemans were 3 bucks, literally 3 bucks for a pint of Sleemans Original.
All in all it was a great night and this place rocks!

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.

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 enjoyed some good belly-warming food, and there are also options for the more health conscious folks. the best restaurant coffee I've tasted. the servers were happy and friendly even though the place was full.
if you're missing pannekoeks like Oma used to make, this is the place to find them.
I left with a full tummy, and a smile.

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.

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 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.
