528 Church Lane (Highway 17 South)
When I mentioned to folks that I was planning a visit to Tappahannock, Virginia last fall, everyone said that I had to stop for lunch at Lowery’s Restaurant. They said I couldn’t miss it if I stayed on Highway 17 through town, and they were certainly right. I couldn’t resist ordering the shrimp platter (with the shrimp fried, of course) – and it sure hit the spot since I hadn’t good shrimp in awhile. What I liked best though were the sides – you had your choice of about anything you could imagine. I learned while I was there that Lowery’s has been a local favorite for 75 years! That’s a long time… and from the look of the board hanging on the wall in their entrance way, filled with photographs, it’ll probably be around for 75 more.
