    Missed the happy hour but got the steelhead trout and loved it. The Harissa sauce put a nice middle eastern touch and made it very unique. Also pictured is the bison burger with sweet potato fries

    My friend and I had the baked pesto oysters. Very delicious! We both had the spinach frittata with hash browns and I had the asparagus. All had a bit too much butter on them. Service was excellent!

    The full day of mealing starts with breakfast twists like a meatloaf hash, then hits lunch with a fried oysters/ slaw/ pickles/ remoulade "Oyster Peacemaker" hoagie. Read more

    Service was top notch & the food was sooooo good! Green beans were great, tomato soup was amazing and I can't even tell you about the Irish Cheesecake without my mouth watering. We had a great time!!

    The tempura green beans are the best! So are the cheese curds (way better than the state fair) and the tomato soup is to die for, it has cheese melted over the top! My 3 fav things to get here!

    Upscale neighborhood restaurant serving your American cuisine staples like burgers, mac and cheese, in addition to bigger entrees like beef stroganoff! Brunch is the best meal but be prepared to wait.

    Cheese curds and the blueberry ketchup are great, the chicken wings are possibly the best I've had and they have an amazing beer selection that always changes.

    Spinach frittata is a craveable favorite along with the delicious Brown Derby and interestingly yummy Snarf! Get there before 11a for 3$ mimosas M-F!

    The Lowry is hands-down my favorite brunch spot in the Twin Cities. The food is always outstanding and the Bloody Marys are spectacular. Service is always fast and friendly.

    Voted top 10 mac and cheese dishes! A giant bowl arrives full of pasta, in a simply creamy, cheese sauce flecked with tiny bits of parsley beneath a smattering of golden breadcrumbs.

    I have to recommend the Bloody Mary's. The Lowry uses Svedka as the rail vodka for Bloody Mary's and the resulting drink is spicy, flavorful and powerful, but deceptively smooth.

    Gluten-free tip: their 4-cheese mac and cheese can be made with gluten-free pasta. They also have gluten-free bread for sandwiches (like the braised beef, which is awesome).

    If there is a long line for brunch on the weekends, saddle up to the bar for one of the Lowry's delicious Bloody Mary's. Careful - they are on the strong side!

    They have lots of #glutenfree options. Just ask your servers. They have toast, pasta, tortillas, and buns for burgers. #enjoy. Gluten Free. Love your tummy.

    Any place with whiskey on the marquee is awesome to me. But only one of their drinks has whiskey in it? Americano is a bit bitter. Battle Cat is fun. Beer in a cocktail? Nice.

    They have a pumpkin pancakes menu item right now which I had to try and they were absolutely delicious! However, like most of their plates, the serving size is too small to actually fill you
