Over the past 40 years we have driven many times from Richmond to Tappahannock to eat fresh seafood at Lowery's. Last week, I took my mother and wife there to eat on Wednesday night. The dining room was only half full, so seating and service...More

This is a rather well known upscale resteraunt on a well traveled US 17 highway. Their specialty is catered toward fresh seafood dishes although their menu covers all food choices. Food is excellent and service is very good. Prices are average to high. Overall a...More

Excellent Everything. Seafood exceptionally well prepared. Fried oysters a definite draw. Corn and crab fritters very nicely done. Hushpuppies are the best. Quick service. Abundant seating with a welcoming presence. DO NOT DRIVE BY. No need to look elsewhere.
