Pike Place Market has many food choices. Lowell's was reasonably priced and tasty. We had the clam chowder and deep fried cod and enjoyed both. The restaurant occupies three floors all facing the water. Complete table service is on the 2nd floor only. Otherwise, the customer places his order at the counter on the first floor and finds a seat... More

We were almost first in to Lowell's on July 4th and had a great breakfast looking out of the top floor windows. The food was excellent and there was plenty of choice too, coffee was good as well. I can't recommend it highly enough to first time Seattle visitors, and it's especially good if you can make it there early... More

It's ALL about the view, so the perfectly cooked, ample breakfasts were just a bonus. My husband had French toast, and I had the Market Breakfast; we did not leave hungry! Service was great, and since it wasn't very busy (we are early risers), the waitress chatted with us a little about things to do/see in Seattle. I loved that... More

This is a breakfast spot with personality - not your mass market Denny's nor your trendy brunch restaurant with table clothes, a rose on the table, and dainty meals. Situated in Seattle's Pike Street Market, an indoor farmers' market lined with produce and seafood, customers line up outside to watch the massive grill overladen with hashbrowns, pancakes, eggs, and other...

Very disappointed with the food. We had a great table by the window but when food arrived what a shame. Had a smoked salmon and crab Benedict---very little seafood on rye ? Bread,, smallest portions I have ever experienced. Had to signal 3 times to get coffee refills and the check.

Went here for lunch after arriving & upstairs has very good food & lovely views of either water or market. Kitchen was very slow that day though, so it wasn't a quick meal. Wait staff friendly & helpful.

After a short walk to the Public Market, we stopped in at Lowell's. (Recommended by our hotel.). Located next to the waterfront, there are great views from the any of the three floors available for dining. You have the choice of sit down or counter service. Enjoy a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. However, be prepared to pay $5... More

When we are on the coasts I live on sea food and clam chowder. This did not disappoint me at all. We were on the second level, where children are not allowed, with a great view, a good waitress and were served promptly even though they were very busy. The chowder was great. I would return if I was in... More

Crab was not one of our favorite seafood until we tried this delicious so fresh crab meat sandwich. If you are looking for a romantic and cozy place to enjoy the view, this is not for you. It is quite informal, but food is delicious. Visited the place two times on our three day stay at Seattle and besides the... More

This was our first trip to Seattle and the Pike Place Market. Upon walking through the market we saw Lowell's restaurant and all of the magazine covers that touted what a great place it was. We thought we'd give it a try....big mistake. For the amount of money we spent and the quality of food we received for lunch, we... More
