I haven't been in this place for years and I recently went back for dinner. It is still very good. I would recommend.

I have eaten a few times over the past few years. I like the fish dishes here. I usually get salmon, but my friends have liked their dishes as well. I have had good wine here too. It has big booths that you can enjoy eating and talking in. I would recommend this place.

First time visiting. Even though it had a good rating we were initially leery because the floors were sticky all the way to the table. We were pleasantly surprised and had a fabulous lunch after asking our server for a "light lunch" recommendation. Began with great beer on tap options. We had a shrimp capreze salad and the dill tarragon... More

I eat a bowl of this soup sometimes once..even twice a week for lunch! It's so much better than getting jimmy johns or fast food and will fill you. Ask for a roll too! Yum.

Lily's has great food, great beer and (usually) great service. My only complaint is that it is pretty slow if you sit outside. My favorite beer is the IPA but they also have a lot of specialty drinks to choose from.

we started with the blue crab spinach and artichoke dip.. it was a great portion for sharing between three people, and the flavor was just right! you could definitely taste the seafood, but not too over powering. for dinner I ordered the crab legs.. when I first got my plate, I was glad I only got the HUGE half order...

Finally, some place that knows how to cook calamari properly ! Very impressed, I have returned more orders than I've kept over the years in the whole North American Continent ! Done perfect, lightly breaded. The only complaint I have is that they didn't have blue cheese dressing for the salads ! Other than that minor detail, it was great... More

The waitress was the best part of the evening...very friendly and helpful. She kept checking on us to make sure everything was good. Food was good except for my husbands. He had the perch with a lemon sauce. The sauce was very lemony which he was not keen of but he said the perch was good. The whitefish and shrimp/scallops... More

I haven't been here In a few years. It's not bad, but I'd call it average. Has lost a star in my review since the last visit. My sister had the scallops and was underwhelmed. I had the fish and chips and it was just ok.

Thank takingamoment
