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

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.

I hosted a dinner for 24 on a very busy night in October and the staff and meal were very good. I recommend Chef Louie as the best steak house in town

After our week long Mule deer trip we stopped in mitchell on our way home. We wanted a nice meal. We both ordered the Ribeye. Mine was overcooked and my dads was under cooked. We were the last two in the restaurant so not sure if the cook just had a long night or what but it was only 9PM.... More

When traveling to South Dakota, especially if you will be passing through Mitchell, SD, a stop at Chef Louie's is a must, if you enjoy fine food and excellent wine. The atmosphere is one of the best in SD and includes a seasoned wait staff. The owners are there on-site to seat you and make sure your experience goes well.... More

You need reservations if you are going to Chef Louie's (at least on the weekend). The food is really GOOD, and service is nice. The place is dated, but no one seems to mind.
