We come here often since we live in the neighborhood and always have a pleasant experience. Thank you for accommodating our request for a quiet place to dine.

Tasty appetizers and wine list at a fair price. Happy hour, BOGO with plenty of room for groups. Noise isn't bad even for the World Cup crowd.

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.

Service was very good. Food was fine. Enjoyed the show at the soiled dove after dinner. All great.

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.

The Tavern is a great location for dinner since it is directly upstairs from the Soiled Dove Underground. Good food, service and very convenient for concert goers.

Great place for a business lunch or dining that's a step up from the chains like Applebees.

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.

This was our second visit. We live in Arvada, but both times we met people from other parts of metro-Denver, so it wasn't that inconvenient. We were very satisfied both times. The servings were quite large and tasty. A good experience!

This is an okay place to go for a quick lunch or dinner. Food is good, although not exceptional. Easier than having to go to Cherry Creek and parking.

Have been the Tavern @ Lowry several times - usually just before heading downstairs to The Soiled Dove for a concert. Staff is always friendly and attentive. Love love love the food, selection, presentation and taste! Thank you

We used to eat here all the time when we worked at the old Lowry Air Force Base. The food is still delicious and the service still wonderful.

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 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..

It was great, i met a friend that has been through some tough times recently and we were able to talk and feel like we were not being interupted or overheard.

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.

Dinner was terrific. We went there before a play at the John Hand Theater and had a wonderful time. Don't miss this gem when you are in the Lowry area.
