“Inconsistant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Jilly's is dark, the booths should be modernized, it's not as clean as I would like.
The food is very inconsistant. A quesadila can be great, or it can arrive with very little filling. Roast beef can be rare or dry.
The wait staff usually get an order wrong and has to go back to the kitchen to rectify the mistake.
Having said all that, they have the best shrimp salad sandwiches and the best crabcakes.
They have increased their prices dramatrically, too high to be subjected to the hassle.

“Good food, great beer selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Went here to watch a pre-season game. They have plenty of screens so you are bound to get a TV with your game on it. They have a superb beer selection. The food was pretty good, but nothing amazing. All in all, this is a pretty good place to go eat and watch some sports.

“Great Local Pub with Some Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

Check this place out. Not many like this in this area and great all around atmosphere and vibe. Burger was great and excellent selection of draft and bottled beers. I'm here on business and will be sure to stop back in a few weeks when I'm back. Great sports bar and great TV's to watch sports.

“Good local place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2010

We work a few miles away, and when we don't feel like cooking, or driving any distance, we head to Jilly's. It's the neighborhood kind of place we alway say we want nearby, yet we tend to forget about them.........because of their proximity. I always try to find something different, but often end up ordering my favorite - shrimp salad sandwich with a crispy pickle, and a cup of crab soup to start. But you can't go wrong with their burger, pasta, or (per my son) the fish of the day. They have a large bar, and now that its non-smoking (that you Baltimore!) you can sit at the bar and order the full menu.

Only drawback is, because there are not alot of 'neighborhood" places in Pikesville, you will wait for a table, especially twoards the weekend.
