Good breakfast

My friend and I arrived at 8:45 on a Sunday morning. We had a choice of tables. Within 30 minutes the place was full. Despite how busy it was the service was extremely attentive and friendly. I appreciated how tasty the home fries were. I know a lot of places they are greasy and bland but not here... read more

Good food, good prices. It seems like parking could get dicey during rush times but overall a solid breakfast.

The Four Sisters Owl Diner is a fine local DINER. Super for breakfast and lunch with great diner staples. As a regular, I appreciate the family atmosphere and greetings from the staff. I am never disappointed.

Thought about brunch in Beantown but knew this would be twice as good for less than half the price. We were not disappointed. Both got the hash... More

This is by far the best breakfast I have ever had. I find awesome diners all over the place when I travel, but none has ever equaled the Owl Diner, especially when you add in local ambiance. The pancakes are absolutely buttermilk soaked and delicious and the omelettes are to die for. Plus, the price is right!

Great diner experience and locals place. Breakfast is delicious and lots of it. Very popular for police and firefighters, politicians and just plain regular people. If you live in Lowell, you've been here. Tables, booths or a seat at the counter, all the same, great service and prompt. Coffee is really good as is the pancakes and omelets. So many... More
