My wife and I went over to Lillian's the other night and had a really good meal. I was sort of expecting to not like it but I was pleasantly surprised. Is it the nicest place or best place in the area? No...but it is a solid choice for an alternative place on the list of local eateries. Even the... More

Home made linguine and clam sauce was excellent. This restaurant is a hidden gem. Very good food and service.

Somewhat new to the area, wife and I have been trying a number of local restaurants, and recently stopped at Lillian's on a Friday evening. The food, drinks and service were wonderful - and met Lillian as we left. We'll definitely be back!

How often does the owner seat you and deliver your meal with pride? Well, Lilian does because she knows her food is that good! Check out their menu. It is varied and creative.

I typically do not blog and review meals even after a bad experience, but I could not resist this time. We went to this restaurant for my mother's birthday, and we were the first people in the restaurant dining area at 5:45 PM. We had five adults and one child. The remainder of the dining room filled up over the... More

My wife and I have visited now twice in the past few months and both times we were very impressed with the food, wait service and overall dining experience. They always seem to make time for us even though we have shown up twice without reservations and their dining rooms were very full. Just a great time and some very... More

We love this restaurant, had an excellent meat there on a Friday night, the service and food could not have been better. Lillian greeted us warmly at the bar, I had Lillian;s chicken for dinner and my husband had the lasagna, the portions are quite generous and we enjoyed our meals very much. The bread is homemade, as are the... More

A cousin who lived nearby, recommended Lillian's for a luncheon after a Memorial Service and unveiling of a plaque to honor the 40th anniversary of my husband's death, whose remains are in Washington Memorial Cemetery in NJ. It was the only restaurant in the vicinity of White Haven Cemetery that served lunch on Saturdays. We ordered individually from the menu... More

Party of fourteen service was slow and we did make reservations. Baked fish was very small portion and dry for 14-16 dollars. The last dish came out as the first person was finishing their meal. Crazy! after the tip and taxes it was $20 per person on the average. There was only two other tables that were sat. I think... More

Went here recently for a family gathering - the fact that only 2 other tables were occupied during dinner was our first clue that this wasn't going to be the best meal we'd ever eaten. Overall every aspect of our dining experience was mediocre - not bad, just nothing special. Prices were reasonable and portions were decent sized. I've had... More
