Lowery's is a well established restaurant. The food is a little pricey $$ for the quality served. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. She has good skills. The food was on the bottom side of mediocre. For the price the quality was not there.

So glad to revisit the latest version of a place. More than a few from Richmond loved eating there and, being in the area, it was an important stop for me. The menu includes small plates and that was perfect. The server and I discussed...More

By chance, this restaurant was on our way to Virginia Beach from Washington DC on US17. The food was delicious and the staff friendly. It was just what we needed for a lunch stop.

This was obviously a town favorite but I found the food average for the price. I ordered the shrimp and scallops platter and they were well cooked, but the portions were small for the $25 dollar price.
