Good food served with a variety of good beer got and has held our attention. We ate there 3 times on this vacation.

We chose to eat at Miss Lily's our first night in Townsend. Food was good, but pricey. Sides were extra $$. Hostess who seated us was very nice, but waitress - not so much. Her mood seemed to change once she took our drink order and we all ordered water and did not order an appetizer.

We had lunch at Miss Lily's. The menu was limited, but everyone in our party was well pleased with their food. Reasonably priced. Good service.

This is a wonderful restaurant. The food is all home cooked. I had the grits and shrimp-delicious. Also tried the tomato basil bisque with blue cheese-incredible.

This place was across the street from our hotel and recommended by the hotel staff. We went for dinner. The restaurant had southern charm and a chef that knew how to cook. I had roasted chicken with gnocchi and he had shrimp and grits, both were delicious. The food was so good we saw they had a Sunday brunch the... More

We enjoyed a good dinner here, I had the rainbow trout and my husband had rib tips. They had a nice wine list, and you can't go wrong at 6 dollars a glass! We were too full to try the desserts. Everything tasted very fresh and the portions were just right.

We were just driving by and found this great little restaurant! The place is cozy and the food very good. The fried green tomatoes were great! The BBQ sauce was so good we asked about the brand but it's the Chef's recipe so we bought a bottle. It was a very nice unexpected lunch.
