We went here with my daughter and her boyfriend. The beer choices were great. We shared the fried pickle appetizer which was good. We also shared the salmon spread - also good. My shrimp scampi was swimming in so much butter - shrimp was sweet but the sauce tasteless. Salmon fettuccine was very good. Salmon Reuben was ok - it... More

Lily's seafood is very good. Our favorite appetizer is the crab artichoke dip and the calamari is also good. For dinner they have a good selection of entrees. One of the better and reasonably priced is the fish tacos. Always had good service and food here. The micro brew is good but not stellar. Their root beer is good as... More

Fish and something in the potatoes tasted Old/going bad. Think they were pawning off spoiling fish as a brunch special. Not coming back.

My girlfriend asked to go to Lily's for her birthday on a workday. I arrived a bit early and ordered a stout they brewed here. Very tasty stuff! My girlfriend ordered snow crab. I ordered a blackened salmon. The crab came steamed in a mix that may have been Old Bay and extra celery salt. Vet nice combo. Crab seemed... More

My boyfriend and I decided to eat here before we headed to Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle down the road. Perfect walking distance from public parking and a 3.00 garage which is free for the first 2 hours anyways. Right by the royal oak music theater for those seeing something. Our server named Sarah was very kind and attentive. She offered... More

Great food, micro brewed beer and service. We had the shrimp and scallop platter, mahi mahi and sweet potato fries. All the food was excellent and we enjoyed the craft Pilsner beer. Cream puff with Sanders hot fudge dessert was fantastic!!!

I have a gluten allergy and because of this, it is often very difficult to eat out because I need to discuss ALMOST everything with the wait staff (and sometimes the chef). The young waitress also does not eat gluten so she knew everything I could and could not eat. I felt safe with her recommendations which is a big... More

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