“Lovely Lovely Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Every time I go to Tennessee I make it a point to go to Miss Lily's. The food is absolutely wonderful! I usually get fish when I go because they make some great fish, but everything I have had there has been delicious. Everyone who works there is absolutely delightful. There menu is wonderful. The beer selection is quite fine. I have dreams of their Hello Dolly bars.

I strongly recommend trying Miss Lily's if you are in the area!

“Really Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for dinner after a day in the Smoky Mountain National Park. We've spent some time in Townsend in recent years. This cafe is wonderful food. Casual atmosphere with closer to fine dinning food. I had their "signature dish" Seafood Cakes, a mix of crab & trout. It was the best cakes I've had ever. Dinner comes with dinner rolls, soup or salad & one side. I normally have Ceasar salad so I don't have tasteless Iceburg lettuce. The dinner salad served was very good with a variety of letuces cucumber & tomatoes. The service was excellent with every employee saying "Hi" & " how was everything". I felt like a local. This restaurant is Beer & Wine only with an excellent selection. Really yummy place to eat. Will go back when in Townsend, TN.

“Nice stop for lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Our family of 5 stopped at Miss Lily's for lunch before driving to Cade's Cove on a (finally!) sunny day the first week of April. The staff was not extremely pleasant or overly friendly, but we had a very good lunch there. All food appeared to be homemade, the restaurant was clean. We would return again if we are in the area.

“Excellent Sandwiches, but terrible Mac and Cheese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

A good place to get sandwiches for lunch,m but forget the mac and cheese. They also have good chili and will let you get a small bowl of chili as a side, which I'd highly recommend. Make sure you check out the swinging bridge straight in front of you as you walk out the front door. It's worth walking over to see.
