Yummy homemade food in a charming setting with friendly staff

There is a wide selection of food available and it is yummy! After eating at a couple of very average restaurants in the area, this was a welcome meal. They have a nice beer and wine selection, too. Eat here if you are looking for good quality food.

We were staying in Townsend for our 2nd Aniversary and one of the entries in the cabins online review mentions Miss Lily's Cafe. I looked up the cafe online and it had a 4.5 rating. So here we go. It is a beautiful place with nice people, but was the food ever a disapointment. My wife ordered the strawberry salad... More

The brunch on Sunday is very good, they bring you paer with about anything that you could want on an omelete and cook it then bring it to your table. The french toast is the best we have ever had,plus a nice selection on the buffet.

Before heading to miss lilys I did a quick search to look at reviews I was excited to see they had great reviews but later realized that I had failed to notice the reviews were 3 and 4 years old. I had also looked at their menu they have on their website to take a glance at what they offered... More

Ate here with nine, since it was within walking distance from our accommodation. We made reservation and were promptly seated and greeted upon arrival. Moderate decor, nothing fancy, family style. We were not informed about any specials of the day. Went through the the wine and beer list quickly. No regional wines and ales. We ordered entrees only as they... More

We ate lunch here on a recommendation of a local. The food was good. I got the angel hair pasta, and it was pretty tasty. The buns were delicious. My mom, dad, and fiance all had barbecue and they all liked it. Everything was good, but nothing really knocked our socks off. Good place to stop for lunch. Also tried... More

We live close to Townsend in Maryville and come often when we head to the river or the mountains. Love the Le Conte Quesadillas and the Lemon Pie! Brunch on Sunday is crowded but very good with omelets made to order.

I stopped here with my aunt and two sons to get dinner and I was pleasantly impressed :) The food was delicious and I loved the decoration of the place. It appears the place was once someone's house. The swinging bridge behind it was neat too!

I ordered shepherd's pie which cost $13.95 & was special of day. It was mostly mashed potatoes with a few carrots, pototoes & maybe three small pieces of beef short ribs & that was it...very disappointing! My husband ordered the fried chicken which was also a daily special & it was completely overcooked. Sorry...the place was not that busy...it was... More
