    If you are going to a show at The Soiled Dove or the local live theater at Lowry's John Hand Theater (Spotlight or Firehouse), go to dinner at The Tavern Lowry first or go for a adult beverage and appetizers after. The food is superb and well-priced. They have a great selection, so you can go with almost anyone. We had excellent service as well. Overally, our dinner was fantastic and we will definitely go back soon!

    It serves a purpose, and that is it's proximity to the Soiled Dove Below. It's a vibrant atmosphere, too vibrant as you cannot carry a dinner conversation due to it's very load roar acoustically. I was also shocked at the lack of dinner entrees on the menu. Although it's mainly a beer and burger venue, a larger variety of dinner selections would be beneficial to the patrons that frequent " down under" on a regular basis. I will go back on a performance night, but until they quiet the room down and add menu items, I'd probably go elsewhere when not attending a show.

    As a party of five, we enjoyed dining at the Tavern Lowry. Over the years, we have tried an assortment of pizzas and they are always good tasting with a good crust. On this occasion, we tried the Buffalo and also the sausage with bell peppers - both very good. They also have a delicious and fresh house salad. Our server, Byron, was friendly and attentive and it was a pleasure having him take care of us.

    This was our second or third time to The Tavern prior to a jazz concert. We were running 15-20 minutes behind and I called and the hostess was very accommodating. When we arrived no wait for our table. Fish and chips were awesome and tasty. The steak frites were great. Service was attentive without being too intrusive. Of course, the Alex Bugnon concert was nice. Great venue to dine prior to concert or event in the Soiled Dove Underground.

    We've eaten here numerous times but this was the first time we were less than impressed. From the host having to make a second trip to bring a kids menu, asking for thin and crispy pizza but getting doughy pliable crust, that pizza being delivered after the wrong pizza was delivered first.

    All four of us really enjoyed the experience. We were there to see Robben Ford at the Soiled Dove. A good natured young man greeted us at the door...we stood there for no more than a few seconds and we were seated in a booth...which we had requested. A very cute little young lady named Val served us and she was very quickly to greet us and get drinks..food came up before we knew it and everything was very good! Roast Beef Sand, fish and regular tacos, and poached salmon! Good stuff..The whole place seemed to be very well run by people were actually glad to be there! We'll be back..

    Knowing that the Tavern at Lowry is generally busy on a Saturday evening I made reservations on Open Table. When we arrived we were immediately seated. Had an enjoyable meal, trying a few things that I don't normally find on a chain restaurant's menu; the BLTA and Nachos (not the pile of chips covered with cheese one sometimes gets). The food was very good and the service was outstanding. Watched a little football on the many screens and went on to our evening activities. Overall a very good experience. I've eaten here before and will continue to come back.

    We love the Lowry Tavern-always have. The staff is beyond compare for friendliness and efficiency. But isn't it time for the Tavern, as the only large venue in our "small town" of Lowry, to offer more real dinners? Bar food only goes so far, and we'd love to choose the Tavern for more nice evenings out with friends and family. With a captive market of locals with money but little time who would rather eat out than cook, there's no competition. Their salmon is ok; steak frites doesn't cut it for a real meat lover, and they don't offer a rare French Dip which implies precooked beef Maybe offer a baked chicken entree or one really terrific Filet cooked to order with shoestring fries. For now, we'll continue doing lunch, which is great.

    We reserved a table anticipating that the restaurant would we packed because of the big college football games. But the place was not busy at all. The food was ok. The waiter mixed up our drinks. 1 entree' was missing spinach. We pointed it out to the waiter and he brought out a side of nasty spinach. overall it wasn't too bad of a time.

    My hubby & I were going to Soiled Dove for a chow & figured Tavern was a good choice for dinner. We were pleased with our food (Fish & Chips, Chicken Enchilada) and loved our drinks! I had a Moscow Mule, 1st time, yummy! The patio looked great, but it was during our recent rainy (!) weather so we couldn't check it out.We were happy to see they have late night offerings, sometimes it's so hard to find something not divey later at night. We'll definitely try it again, especially before a show.

    Wife and I went here before a concert at the Soiled Dove which is directly underground. It was a Wednesday and their happy hour specials are pretty good. We got a bottle of wine for half price and a pizza for $10 and our total came out to less than $30. It's pretty hard to beat that deal! Our wine was delicious (Zen of Zin) and the pizza was pretty good too. The pizza was a little floury and the marinara they use is on the sweet side, but I still enjoyed it. We got a waitress who just got done training, but really couldn't tell. She did a decent job. Manager also stopped by and filled my wifes water glass since our waitress hadn't gotten to it yet. Overall, a pretty good place with good deals. We will definitely be back.

    . I thought all bases were covered? Made table reservations for our party. Purchased tickets for Steely Dan Tribute at 8:00pm. Reservations are made for a reason. Our server, Dane! was a hot mess from the initial contact 20 minutes after being seated. We saw plenty people come, order, eat and leave. No attention at all! Could not find this server. Asked other servers to locate him. Bottom line our burger and two chicken sandwiches that arrived at 7:45pm. If we could located Dane at 7:30 he would have known the food was too late for us. Instead Dane approaches with cold food and an attitude. I asked for the manager, who was right behind him. What possible reason could be given for one hour service for sandwiches. There was something WRONG

    The Tavern chain of local "pubs/beer and burger" joints provides typical bar food in a typical setting.. Not going to win any culinary prizes for either food, preparation, presentation, or service. But they are a reliable spot for a decent enough burger and ice cold beer if that is what you are hankering for.

    Found the food to be just OK. Nothing special. Was hoping for more upscale diner fare but food seemed to be more what you'd expect at a bar. Wine list was lacking. More or less grocery store lower range juice. I would go back but with a different expectation of watching a ballgame and enjoying some beer/appetizers rather than enjoying a nice dinner.

    This was the second time my husband and I dined at this restaurant. We enjoyed it on this visit just as much as we did the first visit. The menu has a large selection to choose from with some pretty creative items. The only bad thing was that it was a little dark in the corner where we sat for dinner. Other than that, everything was wonderful!! Great happy hour choices, prices were not bad, and we were definitely full and pleased with our food choices. We will probably return for a third visit then next time we are in the area.
