Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Worst crab cake I ever tasted. Cole slaw was bland and watery. The hush puppies were good. Will not go back!

Fun little place with excellent seafood and chicken. Crab cake sandwich was very meaty with a good crab-to-filler ratio.

I've been a customer of this establishment for years. Ilove the selection and the quality of the food. It's not the cheapest place, but no good seafood place is and their prices are fair based on seafood shortage. They don't have wait staff, but you...are able to sit at the tables and eat if you would like. They do have people wiping down tables and assisting where they can. I had a conversation with one of the owners, they stated that they won't ever go back to full service based on how customers have acted in the past year or so. I can blame them, people have lost their minds, just look at the post prior to this one. It would make you believe that you can't sit and eat , which isn't true, get over yourself. Thanks for the great meal again!More

Drove 25 miles to Lowry's for dinner only to find out they were closed to walk ins. Was told I should have checked their website. How many times do you check a restaurants website before going when you know their hours? Unbelievable! Never again.

I'm from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, so I am picky about my seafood. Even though the food on Lowry's reviews pages looks appetizing, I wasn't sure if the taste and quality would meet my standards. After trying their Fried Sampler, I am won over!...The seafood was exceptionally fresh with just the right amount of breading, seasoning, and crispness. The variety of seafood was impressive, with large scallops, oysters, shrimp, and delicious catfish. Their homemade corn fritters are a unique side, adding a delicious touch of sweetness. As a new resident of the area, I am thrilled to have found a local, family owned restaurant serving such amazing seafood. Now I can just drive around the corner to get a taste of the Shore.More

Food is very good....but...as a veteran it really bothers me that they fly the defaced black and white American flag. It disrespects our flag while sending the "black lives don't matter" signal. I can no longer patronize this restaurant.

This casual restaurant is a small cozy place with indoor and outdoor dining. Service is prompt and waitresses very polite and accommodating. The food was good, though certainly not outstanding. The prices were high considering the place was so casual and right on the road....Probably the best thing to get would be the steamed blue crabs, but prepare to pay as much as you would in a more upscale restaurant.More

It was a cooler day so eating outside in a Florida type setting was nice. The corn fritters have more corn than most restaurants and the appetizer portion is huge. The platters are enormous and everything tasted very fresh. It is too bad they do...not serve wine, but it was still very delicious. The soft serve ice cream is refreshing after seafood.More

We stopped here on our way through town in the middle of the afternoon and had a great shrimp lunch on the outside patio. Staff is more than friendly and the food is really really good.

Coming from the east be sure to get off at RT 9 so you roll through the quaint little Americana town of Hamilton, which is all decked out in flags etc. right now. The spot is just roadside but in a treed versus developed spot....Think New England clam shack kind of place on the Cape. Food is otherwise just what you expect and won’t wow you. Pretty sure they boil in slat water so very salty the seafood that we had. Coconut shrimp is definitely the appetizer to get. Seafood ain’t cheap in these parts and here is no exception. Lot’s of outdoor seating (does anyone even go here to eat inside?), little play area for kids and salt of the earth type folks all around you.More

The coconut shrimp is AMAZING. Not only is it the best coconut shrimp I've ever had, it's one of the best things I've ever eaten. Highly recommend. The staff at Lowry's were helpful and friendly and the restaurant has a comfy feel and we felt...right at home. Lots of locals love it, which is always a good sign for a restaurant.More

We dined at Lowry's on a Friday evening in June and, although very crowded, we were given a table outside immediately (I think we lucked out) and despite other reviews I've seen regarding service, our waitress was attentive and gracious. My husband ordered lobster tail...and I had a cobb salad. I am not a seafood fan, but there is plenty on the menu to choose from. The food was very good and plentiful. We would definitely return.More
