Seattle >Lowell's Restaurant & Bar
Thank you, breakfast rocked!. Good times. great food and super casual attitude and atmosphere. Great view of ships going to port, funky way of getting your breakfast on, climbing flights of stairs, but pretty hilarious. It works, we liked everything we had. We'll be back for fish & chips, give the other meals a try. Good show guys.
Awesome time in Seattle, thanks!. The cute little Hawaiian bartender food server that was laughing and joking with everyone and the window table while we ate their awesome halibut & chips. Great selection of drinks, this is a gem of a place. Reminds me of old Barnaby's overlooking the water in Sausalito in the 70's. Real place with fresh food. Except for the drunk clowns that wandered into the bathroom and started talking about scoring at the bar down the street, all cool!
incredible salmon tacos!. these guys get more right then wrong. fun people with a zany operation on 3 floors but it is real! the salmon tacos were as good as they get, but I've never come across salmon tacos before. these guys seem to want and make better then tourist food under the harshest of circumstances. small kitchen and stairs to run to crowds on 3 different floors but it works. we had excellent fish & chips, the salmon tacos, an order of crab cakes and a couple beers. best lunch we had in seattle. can't wait to try their "famous breakfast".
Seriously 6.95 for a side salad???. When questioning the staff about the price for a small dinner salad I was told "it is what it is." Nice!! The fried shrimp was freash except for the burnt breading on it and the fries were regular old frozen type. So, $13.00 for that and $7.00 for the salad. The tables too are close together. PLUS , as for hygiene the staff never was seen washing thier hands or the tables. I guess they try to push alcoholic beverages to make you not realize what is going on. I just moved to the area and will find a better way to show-off the beautiful Puget Soundr to my clients and friends. However...Lowell's doesn't do anything but play-up thier locationin the Pike place market. BTW, the last time in I sat at the bar and had a equally disturbing experince. Ex -staff with hangovers catching up on the gossip and compare mgmt horror stories!
Great food and service!.
Being from a city of great seafood, I was impressed by the quality of the seafood and the smart service given to our party of 8.
Food came cooked properly and hot..Not easy to do at the busiest time of the day to a large party of people.
If you want to eat at a casual, non-fancy place actually in the Pike Place Market, then Lowell's might be for you..
It's been in business over 50 years and is still going strong. There are different rooms with different (relative) ambiance and options. They call themselves "almost classy" which is a stretch, but it is a kick and the food is perfect for what it is.
You can order on floor one and either eat there, or on the third floor which is a nicer spot. They bring the food up to you and it doesn't take long at all.
The second floor has table service and a great bar along with the view. I was quite impressed with Manny's ale which was new to me.
I'm a major clam chowder fan. It is very good at Lowell's compared to virtually all others around the country. But great chowder is the norm for Seattle. The burgers here are also great. The blackened salmon tacos in a corn tortilla work well for those who like a Mexican flair.
Breakfast is actually supposed to be their best meal. I hope to try that next time around.
unforgettable. If you want to enjoy the quintessential breakfast experience, and are a stranger to Seattle, I cannot think of a better place than Lowell's. We stumbled on this place early our first morning while checking out the market and were greeted by really friendly staff, a comprehensive menu, and the best views you could ask for. Needing to enjoy the Seattle experience, I ordered the Dungeness crab omelette, and tasted a bit of heaven. Add to this some sourdough toast, and a great cup of java, and I had an unforgettable meal, despite not really being a morning person. Lowell's is on the list of 'must do' while in Seattle.
OH MY GOD!!!.
I tell all i know to chek out this joint for petit dejeuner= breakfast in english...:o)
the atmosphere is great the place is sooo old and unique i love it... i feel as if i am in europe, but better.... yeah like cleaner and more food....hee hee
take yourself and any friends from out of town for a bite here you won't be dissappointed....
say hi if you see me every tuesday 11 am there!
Outstanding View - Good Food - Prize Find Place. Yes, this place takes a little energy, but it's worth it for the experience. Order off the menu on the first floor, get your drinks on the first floor and hike up to the third floor for a breath taking expensive view at a quite reasonable price. Food is very good and fresh (duh... you are at the Pike Place Market), wait staff is friendly and prompt, cook is interested in you getting exactly what you want and this is a different location than your average sizzler joint. I had the blackened prime rib sandwhich with fries - blackened is the seasoning and not the burning of the meat and it wasn't too spicy for a half delicate stomach. My friend had the salmon taco which were quite fresh and tasty (second duhh... you're in Seattle and at the Market). Third floor view is outstanding and actually a quiet hideaway but a tad bit hot on a rare 80+ degree day. Good location to take tourists or regular hearty Seattlelites. Another note... there isn't anymore indoor smoking in Washington, so don't fear going up to the third floor and worry about butt air - Seattle is under clean air conditions for dining :-) The only reason why I didn't give it five stars was that you have to go thru additional training to understand how to get your drink and take it up to the 3rd floor.
Best breakfast in town!. It was my first time visiting Seattle and we found Lowell's when walking thru Pike Street. We got the Farmer's Breakfast and the famous Eggs Benedict topped with crab. The farmer's breakfast is the same as any breakfast joint but the eggs benedict with crab was phenomenal! We sat on the 3rd floor where it's self-seating (2nd is table service). The view of the water is great being on any of the 3 floors and the bus boys were quick about clearing tables and getting what you needed. The team at Lowell's made you feel like family and that's why we will always come back to Lowell's when visiting Seattle :)
