I was searching online for something different and came across Lily's. Wonderful art deco atmosphere, phenomenal service and great food using local ingredients as much as possible. We try to go there at least once a month. Took our son and his wife for his birthday and they loved it. Lily's also has specials incorporating the movie theater where you can, depending on the day of the week, either get a discount with movie or theater ticket stub or see a movie for free as part of a package. They don't push you out the door, you can actually savor your wonderful meal. Well worth the cost and(for us) the 45 minute drive. Only sorry I'll be out of the country for their New Years Eve Bash.

Just called and booked lunch reservations to spend another day after Thanksgiving with some very special people in my life! Four years ago, our dear friend and my husband and I decided we would meet the day after Thanksgiving to give thanks to each other and celebrate our friendship. At that time, she had just re-located from New England after the sudden death of her husband. I researched the area and found halfway between where she lived in upstate Pennsylvania and halfway between where we live in South Jersey, there was Lily's on Main. The hostess was warm and friendly, the server was top-notch, the food was absolutely fabulous; the chardonnay flowed and we chatted for hours in an intimate setting. It was such a fabulous day for all of us that we have made it a yearly tradition! Lily's now holds a special place in all of our hearts!

I take clients to Lily's every opportunity I get for lunch. The minute you walk in the building, an old fashioned movie theater on the first floor, the decor is reminescent of the 1930s. The art deco in the restaurant is gorgeous even down to the lamps on the tables. The menu is somewhat limited for lunch, and it has not changed in the three years I have been going there. However, the food is always excellent from the cranberry bread, to the seafood, salads and freshly made soups. Get a seat by the window, for a lovely view of historic downtown Ephrata. The service is first class--you won't be disappointed!
