Louie's Chicken was very good and had a good ambiance. In terms of value, it was okay but some smaller items could be a bit cheaper.

Went on a Saturday night table booked for 8:45 but was seated at 9:45. Food arrive at 10:15. Was not expecting to wait as reserved a table. Seats were becoming available but was still not being offered a table to my disappointment. Otherwise actual service from staff was excellent and food was delicious! If they would sort out their reservations it would be amazing but you’re treated as if you didn’t even bother to make a reservation. And then when you don’t make a reservation you are turned away.

Can’t say much for ambience or noise as we were the only ones in the restaurant (it was a Sunday) but the food was incredible.
Only suggestion is fries are a bit small for the price but plus the main there’s no way your leaving hungry!
Also extra hot could be WAAAY hotter - but that’s just a personal preference.
Final note - order the BBQ sauce!

The worst meal I have consumed in the last year by far. Service was pretty much non existant. Waited half an hour for a beer, the chicken wings were raw in the middle and the restaurant smelt like bleach. Not to mention the soap dispenser fell straight off the wall when trying to use it.

Other than the above it was great

The chicken is really tasty and the portions are very generous, we tried the wings extra hot and the chicken with waffle, great music and cosy place.

Took 2 hours for food to come out. Chicken was nice but nothing special and the “extra hot” was very mild.

Very expensive for what it is and ambience is dull

We attended the restaurant Saturday evening and the place was empty, only two other people in there which raises suspicion.

Complete let down if you want to wait an hour for fried chicken that is absolutely cremated and for a hefty price then get booking. I personally will never be going back there again for chicken 20x worse then KFC for 4x the KFC price, tastes nothing like Nashville hot chicken.

To add insult to injury the restaurant is only awarded 2* on the food hygiene register, I would steer well clear and spend your valuable evening and money elsewhere.

Love this place, the best fried chicken in London hands down. Went with a group of 4 and we had the Whole Coup (a whole bird fried in the Nashville spicy style with extra wings) and the Rancher hot chicken sandwich. All really great and friendly service. 11/10 will be returning

Innovative food and a fun atmosphere when we visited. Came just for a quick bite for lunch and had the Po' Boy sandwich which is a long bread roll with spicy fried chicken in it. Good selection of cocktails and boozy milkshakes so will come back with friends some time in the evening

It took over 45 mins to get our lunch & there were only two other couples in the restaurant. It didn’t look like the pictures. Burger was flat in size & lacked flavour. We ordered extra hot wings... not hot at all, they tasted the same as the hot ones. Just wasn’t impressed. I preferred the experience at red dog

My friends wings were a bit over seasoned, my food was amazing (Sando and beef taco). There was a big lump of butter on the waffle as well.

Food was good. Cocktails were better. It wasn't even busy yet we waited 15 minutes for our order to be taken, then a further 45 minutes for the food to arrive. After we ate, I asked the waiter for the bill and again we waited 15 minutes.. I eventually got up and paid at the bar. Doubt I would go back.

Very generous portions so be aware of that when ordering unless you're really hungry. 2 ot 3 courses would likely be too much.
Nice polite attentive and aware staff who would ensure their tables are looked after.
Tasty food options with lots of flavour.

Food delivered within a good time, possibly a bit later than intended but the music and atmosphere made this ok.

Don't remember the waitresses name but was petit, had glasses and was likely Mediterranean and was everything you could want in a waitress. The team as a whole were very good and dynamic with their support for one another such as clearing the table and if additional orders were made.

Strongly recommend trying this place and I will be returning.

Though food was quite tasty (chicken & waffles) the amount of chicken was very small. Absurd Bird portions are much more generous. Couldn't finish the dessert as it was just over frozen and tasteless. Sundaes were served in bowls, weird. Service was slow and restaurant dingy.

Amazing experience at Louie’s! Went there to celebrate a birthday and the staff brought out a dessert and sang to us!! The waffles with the fried chicken were to die for as well as the massive bowls of cocktails that they do there!!
Would 100% return !

I had heard such good things about this place and am a massive Nashville hot chicken fan so was super disappointed. It was good chicken and doing it with the proper white bread and pickles was really nice but the spice level was so poor! I ordered a hot and my partner ordered a mild and honestly I couldn't tell the difference between the two. It should be making me sweat and regret my life decisions, not asking if they have any hot sauce.

Other than the spice, I'd recommend it as just a good chicken place.

Went here with a party of 4 for dinner on a monday eve
Service: 1 out of 5. Despite there only being two tables, the staff could not 1) provide food on time or 2) bother to attend to the tables. It took 20 minutes for drinks to arrive, 50 minutes for the chicken wings to arrive (by it self, no sides or sauces), and another 10 minutes for the rest of the things to eat it with. Stairs and floor were greasy as hell and could have caused a serious accident. When I pointed this out to the staff they just shrugged their shoulders and pointed at a yellow hazard sign for slippery floor. When we asked why the food took so long, on a monday night when there was just two tables at the time of ordering, the staff's excuse was that it was one kitchen serving two restaurants (Louie's and Red Dog Saloon). Well that's just your bad planning im afraid, and your own greed that you'll have to solve. If you're going to take 50 minutes on a simple order of your house wings, then let the customer know first.

Food: 2 out of 5. Nothing special, definitely not nashville
Chicken wings; big juicy portions, but soggy and not drained properly prior to serving. As a result it was a steaming mess once you took the skin off. There was enough juice at the bottom of the bucket to fill a wine glass. Started with the mild wings. there was absolutely no flavour, not even seasoning. Then we tried the hot wings. Again no flavour and not at all hot.

Incompetent mess, a sorry sight and nothing to rave about.
