We enjoy starting here when meeting friends in the Vista. Uncle Louie's is a basic bar. This business is not trying to fool you with being anything else. This is why we enjoy going here. Beer prices are good and we can always shoot a game of pool. Long live Uncle Louie's!

We stopped in for drinks on a bar crawl one evening. Old time bar with basic beverage availability. They do have a shuffle board which is unusual in Columbia. Inexpensive beer and drinks.

Great people, great environment. Classic hole in the wall. Drinks are ample and strong, locals are friendly. Not to be missed.

This place is not as pricey as the other bars around it (in drinks and atmosphere), but it has a great hometown feel. They have pool,darts,table shuffleboard, and typical bar electronic games. I love coming here after a long day at work and the service is great! PS James is an awesome bartender!

Uncle Louie's in the more upscale Vista area is the Nonupscale bar that is less expensive than most places that we good old folks can feel at home at. It has that old time bar feel (with older bar tables and bar food), with tv screens and pool table. The owner/bartender is about as friendly a guy you would like... More

The locals were fun and friendly, and the beers were cheap. Bill the owner/bartender was outstanding! Ask about the bar's name name and the Michigan helmet on the wall. An enjoyable experience.
