Comfortable and tasty

Lily's is a local favorite. The seafood is good, but tends toward fried. Good chowder. A comfy place that rarely disappoints.

I just discovered this place and my husband and I really enjoyed it. We only had brunch so I cannot speak for dinner or beer selection. I do love the bloody mary bar and the mimosas they have for brunch. I had the crab cakes and eggs and thought they were great. Portion size was good and everything had good... More

The food was average. I had the tuna which is the signature dish and wasn't impressed. The craft brew was awful.

I chaired an event for the Senior Men's Club of Birmingham, MI. We had 51 people at dinner and had very positive comments from all. Our dinners were excellent as was the service. We will arrange another dinner at Lily's in the future.

Stopped in for lunch on Saturday. It happened to be Royal Oak restaurant week and we chose off the special menu. Creole soup had great flavor with big hunks of andouille sausage and shrimp. Entree was a sizable lobster roll sitting beside a bed of homemade potato chips. Dessert was a banana cream pie martini in a vanilla wafer rimmed... More

Went here with a group of 5 on a Saturday night. We got there about 5:30 and were greeted promptly and seated immediately. The ambiance was pleasant and the noise level good. We ordered appetizers of fries and also brie. Both were quite good as was my salad. The entrees (pulled pork for 2 of us, a spicy szechuan dish... More

Been there a couple of times, but last time with a party of 4 our last entree came 5 minutes after the other 3. They had to prepare more shark steak???? The same was for the wine. I think we had an unusual experience. Our server didn't seem on point. We'll probably return hoping not to have the same server.... More

The food is always good here. A bit expensive but the seafood is good and always cooked simply and perfectly. I will say there Monday night all you can eat tilapia is the best value anywhere. They cook it anyway you like.

We stopped in on whim. Friday night and we were seated quickly. Excellent waitress () made great recommendations. Crab cakes and shrimp scampi appetizers. Incredible scampi sauce! Shrimp and dan dan noodles was very flavorful. Shrimp and scallops was a min just feast. We will be back.

Not only have I eaten here, I have recommended this place to friends from out of town who then called or texted me that this was the best seafood they've ever had. Good food, good value, friendly service, aquarium tanks and art work to admire -- what is not to like about this place? Locally brewed beer and Michigan wines,... More
