Taylor at Adamstown Inns in Adamstown PA suggested this restaurant and he was sure right. food, service were great only thing I felt they took me on was a slice of upside down pineapple pie to go. When I got the bill I saw $8.00 for a slice wow. It was good but pricey

Great location for business lunch in downtown Ephrata. Good variety of luncheon selections and the service is great! Good view and very relaxing, not cramped at all.

My husband and I were here last weekend on the recommendation of the Bed and Breakfast we were staying at. Totally not what we expected, the restaurant is housed in a professional office building with a movie theater downstairs. The decor was art deco and upscale. Great menu choices and the food was delicious. The drinks were strong, definitely not... More

Visited Lily's during a birthday weekend. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere - though truly elegant - was very warm and inviting. Raspberry Chicken was exceptional!!!

I've given this place plenty of chances and think their quality of food isn't good. We ordered a cheese plate and the bread was very stale and the plate was $11. There is this older lady who is a hostess and she is not friendly at all. Bar staff is pleasant though so I would go there for cocktails only

We had heard some good things about this from our B&B, so we tried it. The last time we were here we'd eaten elsewhere b/c we didn't see this restaurant (located on the 2nd floor). My tablemate enjoyed a delicious cocktail (some sort of lemon flavored drink) and I also thought it was good. He had the house salad which... More

Where to begin, I have been a fan of Lillys on Main for more years than I care to mention, however, I have never had such a pathetic attempt at playing restaurant as this on Sunday the 15th, 2016. (read my review from 2014 of Lillys and you will see how far this place has fallen) First of all, the... More

We went here with another couple for dinner. All 4 of us had excellent appetizers and meals. So full we did not have room for dessert but they looked delicious. The homemade champagne scallop soup in a large bowl for $5 was absolutely delicious! So many scallops in a wonderful cream sauce. The Caesar salad was yummy! Fired duck was... More

Very disappointed with our dining experience today. Food was overall ok but overpriced and the service was slow. However, the worst part of the experience was when they served my 2 year-old raw chicken tenders. When I pointed it out they immediately took it back and later brought him out new tenders. They noted that their fryer was not working... More

First, Lily's...though a little hard to find and park...is a lovely place, very tastefully done in upscale Art Deco style. Our drinks were average at best, and very pricey. Though they have a long list of bourbons (about 25), for example, none was a 'honey' bourbon/whiskey, and my wife's more exotic martini was only fair, at best. Our entrees were,... More
