(A steakhouse was still in operation in early 2010. ) There were at least two steakhouses, one of which was the "Lowake Inn", a restaurant and gathering place for locals in this small community. Travelers to Lowake not only came by road. There was also a nearby airstrip where pilots of small aircraft could come and go, within easy walking distance of the Inn.
