Could really be outstanding if more effort were put into the customer service and hire a Chef. Limited Restaurants in this quiet little town and this place is fair at best. They do have a Sunday Brunch, but you better get there early no late risers, or you get what is left.

Went here for the Sunday brunch. The waitress came to get our drink order and gave us a piece of paper to write what we wanted in our omelet. Neither one of us are omelet fans so we didn't fill it out. We went up to the table where we found an array of fruits, gravy, biscuits, bacon and sausage.... More

On my first visit in 2013 I really enjoyed the meal and so did my wife. This year when we returned we both thought the food was not that great. Service was good. I am not sure if there is different management or just a bad day.

Met some friends for dinner and got the brisket, which was very good. One dining partner told me his ribs were overcooked but he finished them, so they were probably not that bad. However, our waitperson seemed overwhelmed with other tables plus working the register, possibly also working some in the kitchen as she frequently disappeared to the back, resulting... More

Had dinner here on a Saturday night. Food was not too bad, steak bites were just average, stick with the lunch its usually better. The biggest problem I had was with the hostess. She was not friendly, and took her sweet time to seat us, even thought there was no one else waiting to be seated at the time, and... More

I'm not sure if we went on a bad day or ordered the wrong lunch dish but I was very disappointed since the owner of our cabin did tell us if we were in Townsend this was a good place to eat. The service was very good and the staff was very friendly, the restaurant was very clean and a... More

Went here with some extended family when they were in town. It was way over priced ($14 for fried fish and fries!) and their selection was limited. The fish was well below average. The fries and corn nuggets were good at least. The portions were large but that doesn't help much when it's not good. The lady who ran the... More

I got Jerome's burger with cheese and it was delicious. Fries are awesome as well....Very nice.....Location is a little hidden on Depot Street, but worth the "search".

The menu is diverse and the food was fantastic. Amazed to find something like the Leconte Quesadilla in Townsend. Wow was it good. The entire family was pleased with their food. Crazy good desserts.

We always have Sunday brunch at Miss Lily's when we visit Townsend. The variety is amazing, and every dish is fresh & tasty. It is a tradition for us and something we look forward to every year
