The menu has decreased in variety since last there but what is offered is very good. The decor has been updated some. Still worth stopping by and enjoying a good seafood meal.

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.
