I left an earlier review giving 5 stars. Unfortunately, the 3rd time we went (May 2019) the 2 people with celiac got sick. We’re not sure what dish it may have occurred with. I did call the manager a day or 2 later and he was very concerned and apologetic. He promised to look into it. I’m sure it was a rare occurrence but wanted to let others know. If we go again, we’ll bring our Nima to test.

Love the GF options. Started with the Cheese curd appetizer (sorry can’t remember what it is called on menu) and fish and chips.

This place has several gf items on their menu and several others that they say can be modified to gf. Everything on the menu is fried with rice flour, so their fryer is safe. I had the fried calamari as an appetizer and it was delicious. Fish and chips were good too. Our waitress was knowledgeable and proactive. She knew not to give me malt vinegar for my fish and chips. I’ll definitely be back.

Lovely experience. The GF options on the menu are marked, and my waitress was knowledgeable - she let me know that when me entree was first ready, someone mistakenly put bread on it, so she had them redo the whole thing for me! The food was quite tasty as well!

Gluten free fish and chips! First time in the 9+ years since my celiac diagnosis that I've been able to order that, and it was fantastic. I also got a side of patatas bravas (very tasty fried potatoes), which are not marked as gluten free on the menu, but they were able to make them in a dedicated fryer. I have dreams about those potatoes; they are one of the best things I've ever eaten!

Gotta go! Had the Calamari breaded with Rice Flour (all items that have breading have Rice Flour) as an appetizer. Lightly crisp coating & tasted very fresh, not rubbery. Hubby ordered fish & chips (naturally GF) since use Rice Flour & dedicated fryer, while I ordered the gnocchi so we could share. I was so excited to have Fish & Chips. My gnocchi was actually just substituted GF noodle, not true gnocchi so little disappointed as we asked bartender waiting on us difference to adjust for GF. Still good, but I would highly recommend the Fish & Chips! We will be back.

Had an amazing experience here! I called ahead to inquire about a couple of menu items and the guy who answered the phone as well as our waitress, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. I was able to have a fantastic gluten free/dairy free meal and did not have a reaction. We will definitely be back!

They have a lot of options on the menu and the food was tasty. My risotto, however, came out with the breadcrumbs. The server assured me he'd said allergy on the order. The meal was taken back, cooked again from scratch and taken off the bill. The restaurant also gave us a free gf dessert. They seem to care about their reputation and offerings for GF eaters.

Excellent selection of GF and convertible dishes that taste great! Squeaky Cheese on small plates menu is GF fried cheese curds. My family with celiac has been here twice just for those. Kitchen is careful. Staff are fun and friendly. Highly recommend for GF eaters.

I’ve been to Louie’s before and had a wonderful experience. Tonight I double checked with my waiter to make sure there was still a dedicated fryer and he said they no longer have one. 😫 The waiter was very nice, but I was disappointed that one of my favorite places is no longer safe.

I ordered the fish and chips, was assured it was gluten free and cooked in a separate fryer, but it tested positive for gluten. They did take it off the bill.

I give this two stars, because from the looks of the menu, there’s a lot of GF food, however almost immediately after eating, my body rejected it. (A usual symptom when I eat gluten.) I peaked into the kitchen on my way out from the bathroom and it looks like there’s one grille, and GF food and non are all cooked on it together, which causes a lot of cross contamination.

OMG...The best GF food I have ever had at any restaurant. The staff was very knowledgeable and accommodating! The menu had lots of GF options and also showed menu options that could be made gluten free. The GF fried fish and fries were outstanding and the GF Apple cobbler (which was big enough for two people) was out of this world! Highly recommend this restaurant!

Not just celiac friendly but allergy friendly. My son has celiac disease and a peanut allergy and upon learning about celiac and his questions revealed a knowledge of cross contact and the difference between peanut and tree nut allergies. Wow!! Food was delicious. How often can someone with celiac enjoy fish & chips? Great choices.

Lots of GF choices on the menu, and ones that celiacs don't usually get. The food is excellent. Great flavors and textures that are very unique. This chef can really cook! The calamari and dipping sauce appetizer was amazing, and the fish and chips were a rare treat for those on a GF diet (GF fryer here, of course). I also really enjoyed the dessert. If you get the apple crisp, be sure to mix the whipped cream with the apple crisp in every bite; they complement each other perfectly.

Louie’s has a true understanding of celiac disease. So many restaurant owners just don’t get it nor do they understand about cross-contamination, etc!! This is one of the few places we can trust in Iowa City! Excellent food & great wine too! Staff is very educated about celiac disease!!!

So happy we found this place. Stopped by at 1030 on a Friday night (they stop serving dinner at 11). Even though we came late the staff was very friendly and the food came out fresh and piping hot. Many options to choose from and they are clearly labeled on the menu. I got the fish and chips and it was AMAZING. They have a dedicated fryer and all items are battered in rice flour. Can't wait to come back and try the other selections

I go the this restaurant at least twice a month!! They have so many unique gluten free options that are so hard to find anywhere else, such as the fish and chips- which are amazing- and cheese curds (these do not always appear on the menu due to the seasonal changes but just ask the waiter for them and they will make them for you). I have never had a bad experience here, the staff is awesome!!

Louie’s is a great new addition to Liberty! Great wine selection, delicious food, knowledgeable staff, and a fun outdoor patio area. Their gluten free selections and ability to modify menu items to be gluten free is great too. The Squeaky Cheese is amazing—GF deep fried cheese, yes please! We also had the pleasure of meeting the proprietor and discussing wines we tried in our Sauvignon wine flight. Super cool place that will definitely be a new staple in our repertoire of dining/mommy’s night out choices!

I have just been there once, but was impressed that they only use rice flour for breading their calamari and other dishes. I understand their fryer is dedicated. we thought the server was very knowledgeable.
