“Very good seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We were recommended this place by friends so had to go. The beer variety is excellent as is the view. I had clam chowder in a sourdough bowl which was fab and really good value, my boyfriend ordered prawn cocktail. The prawns were huge but there were only 5 and came in a glass with a small amount of lettuce, not a large portion and was $15. Nice seafood but clearly cashing in on it's touristy location.

“average restaurant in a great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We enjoyed the chowder, and the fish was fresh and nicely done. Nothing fancy or exciting, but we ate our meals happily. It was very convenient, and has tables with views. If you find yourself hungry while visiting Pike's Place, this is a good choice.

“"Almost Classy"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

My wife and I had lunch at Lowell's during a visit to the Pike Place Market. My wife had broiled halibut (her favorite fish) and claimed it was among the best halibut dinners she has ever had. I had halibut fish and chips and found it good but a bit dry. Their slogan, "Almost Classy" describes the ambience very well. The restaurant reflects the cheerfully boisterous bustle of Pike Place Market. Table service was friendly, but a bit rushed. The view of the bay from the second story was very nice. Overall, if you like Pike Place Market, you will love Lowell's.

“Bloody Mary's ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I was walking around Pike Place Market thinking that the one thing this place needs is a bar that does Bloody Mary's. Low and behold I found this place that does. It uses a mix so you might need to add bits to it but overall it's not bad at all.

“Very hit or miss :-/”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

I've eaten here on many occasions for breakfast and it's been anything from amazing to awful but today's breakfast was just average.....going to give it a miss next time and look for somewhere a bit more off the beaten track..
