Only had 1 drink as the waitress was totally inattentive. Waited 1 hour for apps. They were good, i will never return.

High priced food, unless you go during the burger night deal (can't remember what day). They do have dollar bottle of beer special on one weeknight. This used to be a regular place that we would visit, however, all the great bartenders left, now I would rate it mediocre. On weekends the drinks are expensive.

If it is not happy hour on the Tuesday evening special where a hamburger is only $1, I would highly encourage you to visit somewhere else. $7.50 for a pint of Guinness is marginal when buying one beer, but boy, does that add up. This price was not listed anywhere in the menus, mind you, so that is why I... More

Happy hour is great! Good drink and food specials, and awesome $1 burgers on Tuesday! The atmosphere is very fun, as well! Looking forward to the next time!

So many locally owned places in Ann Arbor that it always seems a shame to go to a chain. But with a slightly later happy hour, we sometimes wind up here nonetheless. And never been disappointed. In a town full of mixologists that build you some ginger based cocktail - it is nice to go to a place with bartenders... More

We were visiting from Colorado for the game and hung out here for food and drinks before walking up to the "Big House". Everything was great..the service, food, drinks, tv for sporting events....we have a Bar Louie in Fort Collins, and this one was very good and don't understand why the low ranking on TA.

This is a trendy, microbrew pub, spacious with tall and short tables as well as two outdoor patio areas that would be great for people watching. It is a lively atmosphere and lots of tvs. The server was friendly and though it was not busy, she was a little scarce. There is a variety of food on the menu, appetizers,... More

We enjoyed selecting several menu items and sharing family-style. Best Voodoo Chicken I've ever had. Perfectly seasoned to provide the proper spicy but not excessive kick. Lettuce wraps, as appetizer, excellent. Smoked brisket sliders - only for those in search of over the top smoked flavor. One bite was more than enough for me. Fish & Chips served with perfect...

Great burgers and fries. They also have wonderful salads, the Southwestern is my favorite. It's a little loud unless your outside so it's tough to have conversations.

Loved this on a sunny Saturday afternoon. The usual Bar Louie fare - sandwiches, flatbreads and apps. Club sandwich was good as were the nachos. Grab a seat outside and watch the people parade on Liberty Street.
