This is one of the best places in Mitchell to eat, so please make a reservation! Especially during tourist or hunting seasons! They are adept at handing all kinds of people and requests, but if you really want in - call ahead! Chef Louie's has been around Mitchell for decades and although it has changed hands in the last few... More

This restaurant made us think of the fancy restaurants seen on tv....very high classed....menu had a large variety with a variety of prices, but all higher than what we normally like - $16 to $60 for a meal, without the extras. We stopped here without alot of prior planning and weren't dressed to fit the setting, and we did feel... More

We had New Years Eve dinner here - eight of us, and had a great time. Service was friendly and efficient, the food was plentiful and tasty, and the atmosphere was very nice. Parking is easy, and all in all, the experience was very good

The menu is fantastic!! You must stop and eat a ribeye! Meat is choice and I believe mcomes from greater Nebraska.

Very good food and cocktails with pretty good atmosphere. The Walleye was very good, steaks cooked nicely. Our server was somewhat un-knowledgeable about the menu and service was just so-so. Prices are high but it's as close to fine dining as you will find in Mitchell.

As a local of Mitchell, Chef Louie's always makes for a great night out. With friendly service and high quality food and drinks, this is a great place to eat if you are traveling through Mitchell or just wanting something made by quality chefs. The inside is very different looking than the outside so don't let outside appearances fool you.... More

Only ate here once after a long day. I had the ribeye steak medium rare. I have to say it was up in the top three best steaks aver ran into my stomach. I felt the service was good and the portion size was above average. I see a couple of average reviews but in my opinion I take them... More

Chef Louie's is always at the top of my list for a restaurant to have dinner and drinks with friends. We usually will get a table in the bar area and not have the white table clothe experience. The food is always fantastic, even the liver and onions. Louie's has a full bar and has good beer choices as well.... More

We visited Chef Louie's for dinner after a long day of hunting. The service was rather slow. The steak was okay but our meal seemed rather overpriced for what it was. Mine was originally way too pink so I had to send it back. Usually they keep your side dish warm or just serve new. The same partially eaten potato... More

This was supposed to be the cats pajamas in Mitchell. I was largely underwhelmed. Service was slow and the food was cold. Beer was cold at least.
