We had dinner here. It's a local bar with good food and excellent service. Two of us had burritos, and they were huge. Each of those people ate half, and took half home. It happened to be buy one get one half off, so they were not only huge and good, but cheap. I really appreciated that the children's menu... More

Personally I enjoy a local bar--friendly wait staff, decent food, games on the TV, people knowing each other. Larkin's is a fixture around Lowell and Mike Larkin is a great community supporter. Good enough reason to be a regular, if you're so inclined. But the food is pretty good, and the servings are large and fillimng. Larkin's keeps trying out... More

My boyfriend brought me to Larkin's since he use to live in Lowell 15 years ago. This was one of his favorite restaurants. I had a meat burrito, it was huge! I couldn't even eat half and I really tried. There wasn't anyone there, however we went on a Sunday during lunch hour. It looks like a neighborhood bar, couple... More

We had our wedding here. They told us that we could do a 4 hour party. Wedding and reception. They charged us almost $200.00 dollars more than they originally told us just to have the recital the night before! On the day of our wedding they told us that we could come early to get ready! Now they are saying... More

Skip this place if you want a good meal and a good mixed drink. Steak was like cardboard, bloody mary tasted like watered down tomato juice. This place is good if you just want a beer or maybe play keno. They also have karoke if you like that.

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.
