On paper, this is the kind of place I love to go to - seafood, casual, brewpub atmosphere, cool neighborhood. Didn't work out as expected. The food: I had the swordfish with potato/vegetable hash. (I'm 90 percent positive it was swordfish, might have been diff, but the fish itself was really good). The fish and the hash was lovely except... More

We hadn't been to Lily's in a while but we went for a fundraiser and we were reminded of how delicious their food is! We've gone back 2x since which were recent and each time the food was very good.

Lily's has excellent fish and seafood options. I had the all-you-can-eat tilapia that they have every Monday night. There are three ways to have it: breaded, broiled, and blackened. I had it blackened and it was done just right; not to spicy, but had some kick to it. My wife had a grouper salad, and she said it was delicious.... More

Always can depend on Lily's for good food and good service, but you can also depend on it to be a VERY LOUD atmosphere. Recent visit almost was too loud. I completely understand that it has a bar area, but the volume coming from there was quite distracting and almost had to carry on conversations even by the kitchen.

Food and service is always good at Lily's. They have beers on tap that they brew as well as others. Nice bar area which is seperate from the dinning room.

Had a really nice meal with a few former co-workers. I forget which day we were there but they had a special where you could pict two super sized appitizers (my term, not theirs) for a very reasonable price. I had the crab cakes and tuna which were excellent. They also have a micro brewery that was very good.

We love Lily's! We eat here frequently from casual nights out to special occasions. The sesame tuna and salmon reuben are family favorites but everything is good. Great beer and root beer brewed on site. We love the decor and the atmosphere. The holiday brunches are great.

After a long day of shopping and exploring Detroit, I needed a quick snack. A co-worker who grew up in Detroit suggested Lily's. We only had some appetizers (mussels, seasoned fries, calamari and shrimp scampi. All the dishes were good, although we weren't happy with the service.

This was my first time at Lily's Seafood. I was meeting a co-worker for lunch and this place was her suggestion. I had the Fish Tacos and she had the Salmon lunch special. My fish tacos were excellent and my co-worker told the waiter how suprisingly good the Salmon tasted. The service was great and the waiter came back multiple... More

I was in town visiting and had a business dinner here. We ordered the mussels with cheddar and blue cheese which was very tasty, never had mussels done this way which was a nice change. We also ordered the calamari but that one didn't have much flavor. Not sure what made me decide to try the Thai shrimp dish, but... More
