This was our must-stop for dinner at least once, when staying in OC at a nearby apartment complex. As per PP, the owner had surgery, and the place was closed for the season. We will have to wait for another year!

The owner had some injuries and surgery. We stopped and talked to the owner and they will be open in 2017. We had great food there in 2015 and it's nice to deal directly with the owner. There is great demand for items like the chocolate cake so I would call ahead and reserve a piece.

Well, my review will be a little bit different than the rest of the reviews. First of all I would like to mention that I worked in Lizzie 11 years ago and it was great. Neil and Cathy are so good people and they try to do the best with their business. The food was amazing back then, and I... More

This is one of the hardest reviews I have written. We were seated right away. Then the server/owner? tells us all the things they are out of. She also mentions it is only her husband in the kitchen so no extras/substitutions could be made. It took a long time for the food to arrive and it was delicious. But during... More

Hi, and thanks for your review. Remember I told you this was the last few hours we were open for the season. Literally! Of course we ran out of a few things but our menu was so extensive there are plenty of options to choose from. Glad you thought our food was DELICIOUS:))) I wish your review and your rating... More

Wow...just WOW! We stopped at Lizzie's on our way home from OC on their last day if the season for breakfast, not realizing at all what a spectacular treat we were about to experience. Lizzie's is a very small and personal venue where the owners are almost religiously committed to serving the finest and freshest cuisine possible and making every... More

Recently on a girl's weekend to Ocean City, we stopped by Lizzie's for breakfast. What a breath of fresh air! It was off season so there was no waiting for a table. The hostess was very friendly as was her husband, the chef. I had a breakfast burrito which was very tasty. My friends all enjoyed their meal as well.... More

Neil and Cathy are so easy to visit. Their food is exquisite and you can feel the joy they have for their business. All meals come in generous portions and the ingredients taste garden fresh and picked that day. We often get multiple meals for the leftovers we take home.

Wandered in here 30 mins after close (we didn't realize) on a weekend with a group of 5 and they seated us anyway! Services was wonderful and they have the best burgers (secret recipe) and awesome deserts. Awesome for comfort food! We will be back next summer!

My husband and I were looking for a good breakfast local to where we were staying. Decided on Lizzies bc of the reviews. We were surprised how small the place was but, we were comfortable where we sat. The waitress was hard to understand, she had a strong accent and she didn't seem to understand us very well either.
