Many will unfairly criticize Louies for having some limitations to your Fido's visiting, but as a local I can tell you that they try very hard to balance a beautiful oceanside deck, very fine table cloth dining,and many dogs smelling of low tide from the adjacent dog beach.

    Awesome

    Mr. Twister had a blast on the dog beach , then lunch at the afterdeck was great. The bartender was so sweet and he even had water bowl ready for Mr. Twister. Great food and drinks and wonderful treatment of pet.. will be back.

    nice relief from the beach

    We can't speak to those concerns about dinner hours. We went twice on our vacation. Both times after taking our dog to the dog beach next door. They don't do food service at the deck tables, but you can eat at the bar and your dog is welcome both on the deck and at the bar. There were other dogs present when we went and one of them had an accident (too much sea water). It was quite messy and the bar staff were reassuring and cleaned up the mess with no fuss (and it was a mess). That impressed me into giving them the 4 bones.

    Selective Memory about Pets

    Call ahead, host told us pets are not allowed at bar during dinner. Too bad the deck was empty then and they could have used the business.

    they say you can bring your dog here, but not from 5pm to 10pm. And they do not serve food on the deck. boooooo

    Very hard to actually use

    Dogs are not allowed after 5PM. The day we went for lunch they were closed. Just check ahead cause not easy to get in.

    Eh.

    Drinks were good, view great but no food or offer to bring out some water for the dog. (Go to Salute! by Higgs Beach - super dog friendly!Talked to one of the managers and hope they will reconsider as it really is a beautiful spot. The dog beach adjacent to them is minuscule but it does offer access for the pooches to go out for a swim.
