Bio: ******** Lovell's is closed as of April 12, 2015 ****** Lovell's was known for their Midwestern Steaks and Chops which were dry aged and hand trimmed on premise by Chef Jay Lovell. Fresh seafood was flown in from around the world. Captain James A. Lovell's personal collection of NASA, Apollo, & Gemini space program artifacts were on display in cases in the various dining rooms in this elegant French Villa style building. The Captain's Quarters was where live music accompanied dinner every Friday & Saturday evening from 8 to 11:30pm for over 10 years. Musical acts hired were mostly duos featuring Americana, singer-songwriters, delta blues, cajun and folk. Live music continued without interruption from October 17, 2004 until April 12, 2015. Bobby Rex's duo was the main act having played "The Captain's Quarters" for over 280 shows during his tenure. Other duos traveling through town would be booked regularly. Chef Jay Lovell may open another restaurant in the area in the future.
