a local favor.

the place is not fancy but the food is good and home-cooked Prices are very reasonable and portions large with quick service with a nice view of the river.

This is Your neighborhood bar and grill. nothing stands out, service is not the speediest nor the slowest. Food is fair and the staff do their be to be friendly. A fair place to get a couple of beers and talk silly with the boys while munching some nachos and watching the game.

Service can be slow at times. They do have some specials that make up for the mediocre food. For a local bar they do have a good beer selection.

Even though short staffed and busy, waitstaff was friendly, courteous and efficient, our ice tea glasses were never empty.. Meals reasonably priced and filling.

We were delighted and quite surprised when Chef Austen came out to our table to see if we were pleased with our meal. He even asked if we had any suggestions for him. He is a pleasure to meet and what a talent. The food was very tasty and his presentation was very good. If you go , make sure... More

A group of 12 - we all got seated together (lots of room, not a busy weeknight). Drink orders came fast but the picture on the Specials pamphlet looked much larger than the actual size served. Water glasses never showed up and those that did get them didn't get refills. Food orders took a long time and one end of... More

Admittedly, it has probably been 10 years since we last ate at Larkin's. It was that bad last time we went there. Steak wasn't even able to be chewed. We waited nearly forever even though we were one of the few tables with customers in the place. My husband's burrito was barely edible. The fact that I still remember how... More

The service isn't the best. There are a lot of drinks in there. They have good food. My favorite is the wet burrito but cation they are huge.

I have lived in Lowell my entire life and have been eating at this restaurant for over 20 years. I am not sure if they still do this but there tortilla chips used to be homemade and they are fabulous as are their vegetarian nachos. My friends and family all love their burritos; I really like the bean one since... More
