My family and I visited Lilly Kazzily's a couple Saturdays ago. We sat in the lounge where the entertainment was and the service was excellent. We had a very nice young lady who was our waitress. We had Caesars which were very tasty, for an appetizer we had the Bloomin Onion, although it was pretty greasy, it was delicious. I had the Seafood Linguine, and it was wonderful. The entertainment was excellent, we enjoyed ourselves very much. We will definitely, share our experience with our friends, and we will be sure to visit Lilly Kazzilly's again soon.

The riverfront view is dominated by the marina and the food is nothing special. I had the salmon sandwich which was basically a filet thrown on a bun with a bunch of dill sauce. No time was put into the dish to make it look anywhere near presentable. Also had the clam chowder (good) and minestrone soup (good) - both are very small portions though, even if they are side dishes.

I'd suggest going elsewhere.

Whether inside or on the deck, diners have an amazing view of the river, the lake and the island. A wonderful menu offers a wide selection of seafood and fresh water fish entrees plus salads and landlubber specials. The waitstaff is attentive . We enjoyed the the Reuben sandwich platter an the spicy chicken Caesar salad . Complimentary bread with garlic butter is replenished at the asking . The pub has a wide selection of libations . A great lunch to capture the las days of summer.

What restaurant lists on it's menu the price of perch & fries as MARKET PRICE ! Lobster , maybe , but perch !!
We I asked, I was told the price was $18.
Lillys is a 'plastic menu' restaurant , definitely not fine dining. I had the perch sandwich which was priced at $9 , not market price , and it was very good.
Beer selection was very ordinary , mostly your standard Molson & Labatts , no local beers or craft brews . This is this mark of a lazy owner who cannot be bothered to get something to appeal to someone who likes something other than lager/pilsner.
Eating outside on the patio was a pleasant experience until someone started packing up the tables and chairs around us. We got the message and departed.
We will not be going back.

Good Day
Actually the price of perch can fluctuate more than you think. During the course of the year it goes from $7.00/lb to $10.50. This all has to due with the fishing season and availability. We try to get fresh as much as possible. When that runs out we have to go to frozen.
Our draft beer selections include Creemore Springs, Schock Top, Rolling Rock and Stella. We also carry Sleeman (three types) and Guiness.All crafted beers. We only have one local beer company in this area and they do not carry it in bottles. We have no room for another draft beer tap.
Once we close a patio section we do stack up the chairs. We find that if we don't people will sit in the closed area. We close sections based on time of day, amount of staff on and how busy it is.Our patio is very large so to keep the server in a confined section it is better for service.We never do this as a hint to leave. Why do we want people to leave?
We have worked this business for 17 years and we are far from lazy.Actually we are very busy running all aspects of this business.
Thank You

WE go here a couple of times a year as is a half hour drive from home.But the view is always worth it.The marina and the island and the river are worth the price.The food is okay,but nothing special.We had the Seafood Linguine and the portions are large enough that we took half home for the next day.The service was adequate as two girls had to serve the whole patio and there was quite a crowd.They were friendly and attentive though. No real complaints .We go eat out at least once a week and if Lilly's was closer would go more often..I noticed the patio floor had been painted and cleaned up.. cheers.
