Hookslide kelly's never disappoints when I'm visitng Lowell. I must admit, I have only been there in the Summer and their outdoor Patio is killer! They always have a live band outside and a DJ inside, so it's perfect to bring a group of people, especially a group who can't agree on where to go or what to do!
The food is also fresh and really good, for bar food. I got the chicken tenders with sweet and spicy sauce and the rival any other restaurant. They said they were hand breaded. SOOO good. I also had a burger, which was equally as good and fresh-definitely not frozen. The other people in my group got a pizza and some other app's that looked tasty as well.
For the social end, it was a good mixed crowd. People were there just to have a good time and there were definitely no "thugs" like you can find in alot of other Lowell bars.
In my opinion, the only bar to check out while in Lowell.
All in all I love Hookslide's
