Homely!

The only problem was we had to wait (it was Valentines Day!!) and it would have been nice to have the opportunity to have a glass of wine. However the staff were kind, the menu local and the food, very much as described, homely. It was actually just what we wanted and we had a great evening in a... read more

I stopped by here with a friend while we were in the area. The food was good, with decent portions, and the prices were reasonable for a sit down place. Our server was excellent, and my friend was able to get a nice glass of wine while I had a beer. I really enjoyed the burger I had and my... More

The good: Quality delicious food..decent prices. Quaint dining area. I had the pulled pork sandwich (great roll) which had awesome bbq sauce, crisp hot fries and close slaw. Husband enjoyed his burger. The not so good: limited winter lunch menu had 4 apps, 3 salads, and 6 sandwich choices. It was about noon and there were 7 tables, mostly deuces... More

Delicious food and friendly staff. Off the road but don't miss it. Try the fish tacos. They are good.

It was good but not as many southern food choices as we are accustomed to. The staff were friendly, and courteous.

Two families traveling together with hungry and parents. Imagine the scene and the sounds inside those minivans... Then, what luck, an inviting rustic cabin restaurant with a flashing "OPEN" sign. Your wife turns to you and smiles. Yes. You did it. You found the solution. Miss Lily's was good. A reuben sandwich, some fish and grits, a hamburger, some chicken... More

We stopped here for Sunday brunch on our way home. It was a wonderful experience. The service was excellent and the ladies were very attentive. The omelet station was a big success with my family. They had the best French toast I've ever had! We would highly recommend this restaurant.

We were visiting the area and decided to try Ms. Lily's cafe. The pot roast had a pretty decent taste but was not hot enough and there was mostly liquid hardly no vegetables and meat in the serving we got. It was priced $12.95 each for three of us. It cost more than $50. The sides of turnip greens and... More
