Lovell's is our favorite go to spot in our community. The food is great and they are willing to customize items to your liking. We really hate that they are closing.

This restaurant serves mediocre food at exorbitant prices. The food was mediocre at best, and the wine list way overpriced. The customer service can best be described as terrible. When I tried to address my concerns with the owner, I was rudely told that it...More
