Good Thymes

Reviewed By islandtina - Tewksbury, Massachusetts

The food portions are huge and there is a very varied menu. You are met with a large glass case highlighting the many dessert options as soon as you enter. Many of the meals are old fashioned home cooked foods. The chicken/turkey croquettes are delicious and always my choice.
Free parking and easy handicap entrance make this a great choice.

Al Fresca Ristorante

Reviewed By lkis229 - Southington, Connecticut

This restaurant is located in a small strip mall and offers really good Italian food. The salads, fish and chicken dishes were well done, presented well and delicious. The server was attentive and informative about options on the menu. We did not have dessert so cannot speak to that. I would definitely go back to this restaurant in the future.

We dined here twice on our Andover trip enjoying a great atmosphere with food and wine to match.. This busy little place serves good wine and Italian food . We ate indoors once and at the rear of the restaurant is a lovely small outdoor area which we really enjoyed. Food is cooked well with loads of flavours(shrimp linguine) was superb.
Staff are friendly and attentive in this busy fun place and well worth a visit.

Reviewed By wmgp7 - Billerica

Always busy. They have good food and do a huge takeout business along with the restaurant. Very casual so don’t worry about what you’re wearing. The waitresses really hustle so the turnover isn’t bad. So if there’s a wait don’t be discouraged. Everything on the menu is good so you can’t go wrong with whatever you order.

Vic's Waffle House

Reviewed By Susan012361

Totally jammed all the time because the food is so good! This means, of course, that sometimes there is a wait, but I promise it is worth it. Counter seating is faster than table or booth, but the service is the same either place. Daily special waffles (like the amazing cinnamon swirl waffle or the curious George waffle) round out the standards, so be prepared to have to choose.
I have been here many times, and this time I got the fruit topped waffle. It was completely delicious and enough to share. The Curious George is my traditional favorite with peanut butter and banana on top. Yummy! Also, the coffee is good enough to drink black.

Life Alive

Reviewed By DevorahLeah - Boston MA

I'll admit it: I'm not a vegan, nor a vegetarian. I do, however, enjoy both cuisines now and then, so when a friend suggested the Lowell location of Life Alive, near where she works, I was absolutely willing to join her. I liked the restaurant's mission statement about their commitment to healthy, "vibrant, organic, therapeutic" food, and the part about how the owners have "devoted ourselves to making nourishing and delicious "slow" food convenient and full of pleasure" sounded like a worthy goal. Unfortunately, the operative word for my experience was "slow," rather than "convenient."

My first impression was to be puzzled that a health-oriented restaurant was not handicapped accessible. I have mobility issues and it's up a flight of stairs to get into the venue (perhaps there's a ramp somewhere, but I didn't see it). It was about 1:30 in the afternoon, but there was still a long line-- that can be a good sign (the restaurant is popular) or it can be a bad sign (there were a lot of employees behind the counter, so why the long line?). The person who took our order was quite friendly. My friend ordered The Goddess (a large salad, nicely arranged, with carrots, beets, broccoli, kale, tofu, other legumes, with brown rice and a sesame ginger sauce) and I asked for the Green Goddess (similar, but with avocados, garlic and flax oil, and various other legumes, along with brown rice). There was also a soup of the day-- I tried the cream of broccoli; and I had a golden spice latté to drink.

The soup came immediately. It was thick and flavorful, almost a meal in itself. My friend's salad arrived promptly, and so did my drink (I couldn't taste anything that resembled a latté, however; the spices overpowered any other flavor). But as for my salad... nothing. I waited. And waited. After about fifteen minutes, I finally went up to the counter to ask how long it takes to make a salad. It turned out the dish had been sitting there for about ten minutes (or so the counter-person said), but nobody had been notified and nobody brought it to me. I remarked on how making a customer wait that long was probably not very helpful, but the person behind the counter seemed quite indifferent. He basically acted as if I should be glad the salad was ready at all. By now, my soup was cold, and I wished I had been able to try both items together, but there was nothing to be done about it, nor did I get the impression it mattered to anyone. Okay fine, it's not the worst thing that's ever happened to me, but when a restaurant's mission statement promises one experience (something spiritual) and delivers quite the opposite (something aggravating), it's disappointing.

Parking in downtown Lowell (which has some wonderful historical museums, by the way) is always problematic. There's some on-street parking nearby if you are very lucky, and a parking lot a couple of streets away. Over all, the atmosphere in the restaurant is very pleasant, not too noisy, and comfortable for anyone who wants to have a conversation over lunch. In fairness to the restaurant, portions were large, and several of the customers nearby seemed very happy with their choices (I am told the wraps are very popular, and the smoothies got good reviews from the customers). But I do wish the service I received had been better, and I will think twice the next time I'm in Lowell and in the mood for something vegan or vegetarian.

Reviewed By Leamer - Ontario

Great stop. At time of arrival it was not very busy and we were seated immediately . Our server was Mitchell and he was awesome. He really looked after us. Food delivery was extremely fast and hot.. We both left stuffed and very pleased with what we ordered.

It was really fun browsing the store after our meal. They had so much to look through. Very friendly staff

Would recommend this location and would come back whenever in the area again.

Reviewed By plastx2 - Boston, Massachusetts

We finally tried Tew-Mac. It was hard to see the airport where our plane's tie down was for years. We loved seeing the photos of the airport and even think we found our plane parked at its tie down.

The menu offered a very nice variety for everyone. We had the evening specials. Salmon was slightly overcooked to my liking, the risotto was delicious. The German wiener schitzel was very good. Yummy hot rolls. Lots of food and leftovers for lunch the next day. There was live guitar music which was nice but loud. Service was fantastic.

Capellini's Restaurant

Reviewed By Bill M

I never expected to find incredible Italian food in Tewksbury, but this place was outstanding! Casual dining room, great food, & quick service.

The Italian Wedding Soup was great. Nice portion of meatballs and flavorful broth.

I ordered the Chicken Rosario for my entree, and it was awesome. The cutlets were pounded thin, lightly breaded, & perfectly fried. The sauce was a Brandy Madeira wine sauce, and was ridiculously good.

Love this place!
