Catch Lowcountry on Water Street

February 15, 2021 /   Lowcountry Chicago Milwaukee Downtown

Now open at 1114 N. Water Street, Chicago-based Lowcountry will provide a backyard feel to embrace the culture of social gatherings around a seafood boil. The concept is inspired by childhood memories of family road trips to the Gulf Coast and digging into Lowcountry-style seafood in bags set on picnic tables for owners Pan and Dana Hompluem.

The Hompluems are most looking forward to sharing their flavor-forward sauce and high-quality seafood with new customers. Diners can build their perfect meal, choosing a protein, sauce, heat level, and a side. Sauces range from flavors like garlic, lemon pepper to Cajun. Lowcountry will be a laid-back escape from hectic day-to-day life. Let your hair down, roll up your sleeves, and get messy!

Lowcountry Chicago Milwaukee DowntownLowcountry will have a designated carryout entrance, making safe service easy in response to the global pandemic. The new space has a large outdoor patio space on Water Street, perfectly equipped to make every experience as safe as possible.

The Hompleuems have been coming to and experiencing Milwaukee for years, fostering a love for the city and the dining scene it has. They are excited about other downtown development, especially for the Bradley Symphony Center.
