Louie's is an institution in Ashland. Right on the square, it is a gathering place for locals. On some Tuesday nights there is a trivia contest. The food is good and plentiful and unpretentious.

The Recession Burger with sweet potato fries is inexpensive and amazingly good. Wonderful, cozy atmosphere with great service. Has wonderful, Creekside dining in season. The staff is the friendliest I've known.
