Low Brow Lounge Restaurant Review

: Low Brow lives up to its name and wears its "Dive Bar" label proudly. You know you've left the rest of the Pearl District behind once you've entered the dim hallway adorned with velvet paintings and Elvis portraits. And there are no questions either about the statement made by the menu's signature offering: Tater Tots. The cutesy, self-aware selections also include mini corn dogs, classic burgers, multitudinous fried items, and a few surprisingly good gourmet salads, such as a "Caesar" with romaine, pumpkin seeds and feta. But face it, no one comes here for the food. The real attraction is the cold beer, the strong drinks, and fascinating people-watching. Friendly staff members deliver drinks and dining advice in a low-key style.
