Found this place after the other place we were going to was closed. Small looking family place per the sign on the door. Inside a small bar café. sport tvs. and a huge outdoor area. We ordered a Rubin sandwich and split it. good for two to share no extra fee. All diners looked like there meals were... read more

Unique atmosphere mixed with a very antique/warehouse feel. The menu is interesting with a very eclectic selection. I had the Chicken and it was a bit dry. But it was a very busy night with our large crowd. The staff was friendly and worked hard to make it a very nice experience. The food portions are fairly large.

I can't fathom how this "joint" (and I don't use the term with disdain as I love a good "joint") gets its high marks as we tried it twice, found it virtually empty each time and with each experience understood why. The service was horrible and sadly was the high point compared to the quality of the food. Twice was... More

The decor and vibe of this place is great. Interesting drink choices and plenty of beer, we all found something we liked. The food was all delicious, the salad comes in actual mixing bowls which are huge! We will come back next time we are in town.

Went to Chelan for Crush events. Stopped at Tin Lilly for dinner based on a local's recommendation. The food was great ( fish tacos) and was a big serving. Wanted to try the bacon Bloody Mary but next time. Host was gracious, waiter was just ok giving little to very little attention to our table. We waited for a long... More

We stopped here on our way to Twisp for a quick bite. It was a huge mistake because it was very busy and although there were servers buzzing around everywhere the service was very slow. It took a long time to get our meal and even longer to get our check. The food was OK, and it was clearly very... More

It had been about a year since going to the Tin Lilly, and it was greatly improved. A nice new menu with interesting choices. We had the bronco burger and the sliders which were both very good. The restaurant was busy, even with the smoke problems in Chelan this month. Everyone was eating inside though! We will return again without... More

We always make a stop to this restaurant while visiting Chelan. This time was around 6 pm and we had a party of 8 so we were prepared for a wait. We were told it would be 25-30 minutes. After 50 minutes, we asked and we were seated within 5 minutes. Not a big deal but a simple, "Hey, we... More
