The Lowell Inn should be on everyone's list for better dining places, not just for special occasions. Atmosphere is refined and gracious, but also friendly and welcoming. Not as expensive as its reputation; lunch sandwiches for $10 and dinner entrees around $20 are very reasonable for the quality received. The food is good, and the service even better. Staff is...

We were seated in the dining room and after sitting there for 10 minutes waiting for one of the wait staff who looked at us repeatedly to take our order we got up and left. No teamwork was observed in the dining room. There were waiters available to help the waitress. Unfortunately they chose not to. The food might have... More

We were on a local tour of Stillwater and the group had lunch at this classic Inn. I ate there last 35+ years ago at their Fondue Dinner which I noticed is still an option. That meal and wine pairing seemed very reasonably priced against Minneapolis meal costs. We had pre selected lunches choices that were very prepared and served.... More

We had not been to the Lowell Inn for a few years. But on this beautiful crisp day we made Stillwater our destination and stopped in The Lowell for lunch. It was wonderful. Linen, flowers, in the historic George Washington dining room. It is lovely to "lunch" with such dignity and quiet. I had a cup of the house mushroom... More

We had another wonderful dinner at the historic Lowell Inn. The atmosphere is quiet even though the George Washington room was almost full. You can actually easily carry on converstations as opposed to many other chaotic restaurants in the area in which converstaions are challenging to say the least. . It is elegant but can be informal as well. The... More

The Lowell Inn has been around forever, but it's still there and still full of charm and dignity. It was brave of us to take an 19-month-old and a 6 year-old to this restaurant for lunch, but it was a gorgeous day and the patio seating by the Horse Fountain was a great distraction for kids. The lunch menu was... More

I grew up in the Twin Cities and lived there most of my life, but had never visited the Lowell Inn. We decided to go there for our anniversary...our reservation was quite early as we now live a long way from that area. We loved the place! It is beautiful and well kept, and elegant. The service was very good,... More

We held an anniversary party for my parents in the Garden Room and it was lovely. We brought in our own decorations and flowers but didn't need to do too much since the waterfall in the room adds much to the atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed the food. We particularly liked the brie, the stuffed mushrooms, and the chicken. The Garden Room... More

Can it be all of these, oh, yes. Lounge on the patio with a beverage, eat in the Garden room or any of the other find dining locations in the Lowell. Great service, great food, fabulous ambiance! Friends, family or date night, this can take care of it all.

I used to love coming to this place. The environment was lovely, the service was impeccable, the food interesting and tasty. But my most recent visit, after not eating there for several months, was quite disappointing. Although the environment was as good as ever---a quiet oasis in downtown Stillwater---the service was simply not up to snuff. Our server was pleasant,... More
