Had a recommendation to eat here. It was the worst veal parmigiana I had ever eaten. Soggy, with the breading falling off and something that didn't even taste like veal. It came suspiciously fast, so it was pre-made somehow. Maybe frozen? My husband did enjoy his seafood pasta dish, but 1 out of 2 is not a great record. And... More

The service was excellent and enthusiastic as the owners handsome and personable son outlined the specials and choices. You could just feel his love of good food as he explained each dish. My...

This is the second time we had eaten there, first being last summer on vacation, and we liked it enough to give it another shot. Once again, the two pastas we had were excellent, the food really is good. The service on the other hand was very inattentive. There were 7 tables and 3 servers so you'd think it would... More

Wonderful ambiance and excellent service take a back seat, through no fault of their own, to the food. These people can COOK! The pasta and sauces are made fresh and on-sight and are yummy! This is a great restaurant and the first place recommended by the locals. The best food in MIdland and could hold it's own in any restaurant... More

My friend and I visited Lily's for a birthday celebration supper. We were greeted warmly by a young man who, we later discovered, was a son of the owner. He was friendly and knowledgable about the food and gave us just the right amount of attention. We shared a very nicely prepared salad as a first course. Our entrees were... More

I came here for drinks and apps with friends and thoroughly enjoyed my meal! We had the Mushroom Phyllo Brie (ooooohhh the truffle oil is amazing), Shrimp (a garlicky cheesy mess of goodness), Lilys Calamari (with just the right amount if heat), and the White Wine Garlic Mussels... ALL Perfectly cooked with just the right amount of crunch and no... More

Although we have eaten here several times, we were most impressed with the staff this past New Year's Eve. We had a reservation for 4 and due to a snowstorm our friends were late arriving at our home. I called the restaurant to inform them that we would be late and the fellow on the line laughingly said "Oh, that's... More

The service at this restaurant is awful. We went their for my daughter's 25th. birthday. First off forget it if you want to have a bit of bread before your meal, your not getting it here! No one even asked if we wanted it or if we wanted an appetizer. My daughter and I unfamiliar with the menu ordered what... More

I had clients tell me that they had gone to Lilly's for lunch and thought it was fantastic, so I thought I would give it a try. I didn't even know they were open for lunch. I don't eat pasta or pizza either, so I was thrilled to see the wonderfully fresh alternate choices on the menu. I had the... More
