We rarely have occasion to go through Tappahannock but we have always stopped at Lowerys when we do, going back to a recommendation by a former native many years ago. Our first trip through there was over 30 years ago, we have been there every six or seven years since.

The service is still friendly and efficient, but I have to say that on this visit, we both felt that the quality of the seafood has slipped while the prices seem to have risen out of proportion to typical restaurant-price inflation.

I have to say also that the introduction of numerous flat-screen TVs we found to be jarring. The place seems to be moving toward being more of a sports grill.

On our next trip through Tappahannock we will try Los Portales or the Fat Finch.

The seafood here is great. I usually order the oysters or shrimp. The only problems I have is during the week it can be a little quiet, and a little expensive for the portion sizes. The waitresses however are extremely sweet and the entertainment on weekends is great.

We were in town for a funeral and this restaurant. We decided to try it out being we both like seafood. Fantastic! The service was great. The good was great. The crab cakes were loaded with crab meat. The crab soup was delicious. It was really good and we were glad that we picked this one! Highly recommend this one!

Very local hangout. Employees know when you from out of town. There is a nice small bar tucked away on the opposite end of the restaurant with outside seating. The beer choice is minimal, but liquor is abdundant. Staff is friendly and they will change one of the few television in the bar area to a game of your liking. It is worth the stop if you are in the area.
