What better reason to meet friends for a Saturday brunch than to celebrate a birthday.  That’s exactly what three of us did on this February day.


Fond memories of some lovely celebrations, dinnrs and “happy hours” made this a natural place for us.  Having not been here with Destination:Accessible eyes made me happy to return.


Louie’s has been in Port Washington since 1905. “At that time you had to get there by boat since it was built on a floating barge anchored out in the bay…In 1920 it moved to a spot adjacent to the Town Dock, renting boats, selling chowder and other seafood.  Another move in the early thirties placed the restaurant in its present location on the Main Street waterfront…In 1954 it expanded into an adjoining building that had originally been a blacksmith shop…In 2000 the restaurant underwent a thotough renovation, resulting in a completely transformed dining establishment for a new century” (website).


Louie’s has a dedicated parking lot across te street, but it is quite hilly.  Either try to park on the street or drop passengers off and then park.


Street-level, double-doors, a small entry-way and then a single door get one to the large welcome area.  There are several dining areas, each easily accessible.  Try to get a table near the window to have a beautiful view of the water. In good weather there is a large, outdoor, wooden deck overlooking the harbor.  The hostess told us that it is easily accessible.  Dine here for the view alone, especially sunset. The food is a bonus!


Although it was a rather warm day for February it was clearly not warm enough to dine outside.  We had to settle for a quiet table, not quite near the window.


Tables are spaciously arranged, making navigation easy, with a nice sense of privacy for good conversation.


Our server (Carlos) was svery gracious.  Since we hadn’t had a “get together” for some time we had much to talk about, so much that we neglected to order. Carlos was lovely about it, just telling us to let him know when we were ready to order.  When we finally did,  our orders were delicious. It was a lovely way to celebrate a birthday with good friends.


Everything at Louie’s is easily accessible.  The multi-stall, handicapped-accessible restrooms have baby-changing stations.  All floors inside are smooth.


As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website www.louiesoysterbarandgrille.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
