An upscale experience in a small town. It is hard to tell how beautiful Lily's is from the outside because it is in what looks like an office building. When you walk in and see the lovely art deco decor, a waterfall fountain and then ride the elevator to the main restaurant the lovely surprise begins! Our fabulous server, Lauren,... More

I love this place, great food, awesome drinks. The decor is wonderfully Jugendstil and the staff is always attentive without being intrusive. If you visit central PA this is a must. I recommend the grilled meatloaf, yes, the grilled meatloaf. Its amazing.

Nice atmosphere, good service with plenty of time for relaxed dining between courses. We enjoyed our meal, some nice twists on favorite menu items. The staff were there to please willing to change items as requested. We were a bit disappointed that the chicken was not available. What restaurant runs out of chicken? A great place to try for a...

Excellent service and good food. Beautiful presentation. Was recommended by our local B&B. Lots of free parking in rear of building. We had no problem finding the stairs to the second floor and was seated promptly. We then greeted at our booth by very friendly staff.

Based on the reviews my husband and I decided to try Lily's on Main. Contrary to the very positive reviews, the food and service we experienced was only average. I had the grilled meatloaf which was OK, not much flavor, just a big chunk of hamburger. My husband had a seafood dish which he said was also OK, shrimp was... More

What a wonderful experience - from the moment you walk in and see the Art-Deco design, receive the warm and sincere greeting by the hostess and wait staff, to the selection and quality of the food. If you want a true dining experience, Lily's fits the bill. Want a quick dinner? Go up the street to Applebee's. Some reviewers indicated... More

We read previous reviews of Lily's on Main, which suggested average food and poor service. Happily, that was not the case for us. Our dinners were quite good. We both had fish. Each dish was prepared well, the fish was not overcooked. The accompaniments, vegetable and salad were also good. The waiter was attentive and service was good. Overall, the... More

We ate at Lilly's at the suggestion of our b&b hostess. Our drinks were delicious but pricey. Main suggestion is to chop the Caesar salad instead of serving a wedge of romaine lettuce with Caesar dressing and one anchovy and 2 olives. We also had vegetable ravioli that was excellent but drowned in sauce. The tomato/mozzarella salad really needed at... More

Service was so slow and the place was not busy. We had to chase the waiter down for beverage refills. Dinner took 50 minutes to get to our table and nothing was complicated. When we looked disappointed, our waiter blamed it on the cooks who were "hungover" as he phrased it. When we did get our food, it was so-so... More
