Lil's is a frequent stop when I'm in town. They have awesome sushi and for those who don't want that they have a full Seafood and steaks type menu. All fish flown in fresh. My new favorite is the the Poke. It brings me right back to vacations in Hawaii!

Great service and excellent affordable sushi between 430 and 630. I have done this a few times. For those of us who cannot afford regular priced sushi, sit at the bar for happy hour. Beers are cheap too. Enjoy

And the sushi was good too. I am not going to lie, we entered this establishment with a huge buzz. They have saki flights! !!! I love variety, and we ordered one filtered and one unfiltered flight. Yummo! That lead to more saki orders. Presentation of the drinks was fun! I wanted to lift the saki bottle, but, refrained. For... More

Although a little pricey, my boyfriend and I love sushi and decided to try this place out. Really cool asian historic atmosphere, nice hosts and servers, and roomy, classy layout. We ordered two 10 piece salmon sashimi (raw salmon) and although it was $30 for each, it was really fresh and still much much better than a lot of cheaper... More

I have been coming to Crested Butte for years, and being a sushi lover have suprisingly never gone to Lil's as I was a huge fan of LoBar. So, as LoBar is gone - gave Lil's a change this past week. Lils has a very nice, comfortable but classy environment. Service, wine, and sushi were excellent. The menu also had... More

First time having dinner here. I got the side salad and braised short rib. My daughter got the diver scallops. We did not order any sushi. Really great dinner. Glass of Malbec was wonderful. Friendly service too.

We were looking for a place which served fresh caught salmon or trout. Few places offer such options. A nice lady at the information center suggested Lils, and she did mentioned they offered sushi. Our party was made up of two families with kids between 4-13 year olds. Well put and well served, we liked the place immediately. To our... More

Was in Crested Butte on vacation for a few days with my husband and son and wanted to treat my son to some sushi which we all love. Went to Lil's to find the service extremely slow and the sushi rolls okay. The entries we saw go by looked good. Thinking we should have had a couple rolls for an... More

This sushi bar was very good. I was pleasantly surprised but the freshness of the fish. The portion of the hot rock was a bit small. My complaint with this restaurant was the service. Our server had a real attitude and was difficult to get her attention.

We are known as having the highest quality fish in town. Our fish is flown in 6 days a week within 24 hours from the docks. We offer a nightly happy hour every night at the bar from 5:30-6:30. In the summer we have a beautiful patio with heaters...and soon a fire pit table! We are a casual restaurant with a warm friendly charm, just like our town of Crested Butte. Private parties available and reservations are recommended but not needed.
