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.
