Louie & The Redhead Lady, a popular Bay St. Louis restaurant, is closing its doors at 136 Blaize Ave. in the Old Town district.

A post on the restaurant’s Facebook page said the business would be shutting its doors and a “closed” sign was used as its cover photo.

The website for Louie & The Redhead Lady reiterated the statement it has closed its doors.

The restaurant was named for its owners, chef Louie Finnan and his wife, Ginger, and his mother, Williamae. It was well-known on the Coast for Finnan’s Creole cuisine such as Eggplant Algiers and Terrebonne Chowder.

When Louie & The Redhead Lady was in Mandeville, Louisiana, the restaurant was featured in 2011 on an episode of “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” a Food Network show hosted by Guy Fieri.

The Mandeville location closed in August 2014 and the Bay St. Louis location opened in December 2015.
