Midland's finest

This is an excellent restaurant in any size town or city. We have visited several times and also ordered food to take on our boat. Every meal was very tastey, well prepared and the proportion was generous. Staff are polite, knowledgeable and very attentive. The decor is attractive and the design... read more

I have eaten Several times over the past few years at Lilly's. Her tag line is "life is too short for ordinary food" isn't that the truth! and this is not ordinary. Lilly's food is flavourful, carefully prepared, and offers generous portions. Most people take home food they couldn't finish. The atmosphere is simple and modern but welcoming. Lilly personally...

Lovely dinner. Friendly service. Calamari was superb! Entire meal very good. Our entire party enjoyed their meals.... We can be rather fussy !!!! Only suggestion is to serve smaller servings. Two people can easily share a pasta entree. Very busy. Suggest reservations

Unfortunately, the three of us had theatre ticket to King's Wharf and therefore we had less time available for dinner than we would have liked, as it turned out. For appetizer we had the side Caesar Salad with "Extreme Garlic" dressing, absolutely delicious, the side House Salad with lots of goodies on top and the Tapenade. The interesting thing about...

The food was good when we finally got it. It was a painfully long wait while others around us were served before us. They made feeble excuses for the wait......what could have been a great dinner was ruined.

Every time we eat there the place is too noisy to carry on conversations. Service is hit and miss, sometimes you wait too long to be seen, although the food is consistently good. Not worth it.

We went to dinner at Lilly’s Italian Eatery in Midland, Ontario on a Saturday in January 2015. It was wonderful! Friendly service, nice atmosphere and really great food. This restaurant opened about 5 years ago, but this is the first time we had a chance to try it. We were happy that we did. It is a small and nicely... More

Lilly's is wonderful. We have been many times over the past few years, and we are never disappointed. Service is always exceptional, and the food is phenomenal.

We decided to try this restaurant for dinner as most of the other places in town were busy with private functions. Many of the entrees we asked for were already sold out. After ordering from the limited menu of what was still available, we waited a VERY long time for our meals to be served. My gluten free pasta was... More
