Our pizza was ok, but really just a mass of toppings with no distinct flavoura, and a soggy base in the middle so silverware was required. A fresh and flavourful tomato and mozzarella salad, decent cannoli, friendly service and a nice outside table made the trip worthwhile.

The service was extremely slow. The pizzas were greasy and limp. I do. It want to eat there ever again.

We came in with a large group and expected to have to wait awhile. We were seated right away, and our red-headed server was very attentive to our varying needs. We ordered pizzas, a pasta dish, bread, and beers. I felt the beer was a little overpriced, which is my only negative comment. Lol...The pizzas were tasty and sizable, which... More

Friends of ours have been telling us about Louie's on the Lake for months so we finally all got together and went to celebrate a birthday. We all packed into 2 cars (parking is sparse) and ended up heading down a very narrow twisting road along the lake. Our friend was driving which was good because we probably would have... More

It's not Chicago or New York pizza but it's very good. The atmosphere is a little weird. It appears like "Louie" may have an issue with hoarding. Once your inside, form your own opinion.

Stopped here one afternoon after some waterfall chasing for a pizza and a beer. The pizza was.....pizza. The beer was cheap, domestic, and cold. The staff consisted of young student age boys and girls with a stern-faced man (I assumed Louie) quite publicly yelling at them the entire visit. If it wasn't one of the only cheap restaurants for many... More

If you have ever worked in the food industry you understand what it takes to serve tables efficiently. You also understand to cut your server some slack because if their service isn't up to par there are many reasons as to why. However, our server on Saturday was atrocious. From lack of personality (hey.. everyone has bad days but some... More

Louie's on the Lake is way over rated. There is barely a lake view, and the building is falling apart. There is 'stuff' piled up all over the place, you can barely make your way to the restroom. Not in a hurry to go back any time soon. Thought we might actually get a good Italian meal, but that was... More

We stopped here as we were driving along the scenic highway around the lake. We didn't know what kind of food they served until we got inside. It was basically pizza, salads and subs. We ordered a pizza and were very satisfied! It was great! Talked to some locals and enjoyed our visit. It was not very crowded as we... More

If you want a great experience, just hang out at Louie's on the Lake and make friends with your neighbors. The pizza is great, and the atmosphere is different in a good way.
