It's BYOB and the food is always great! They have a nice patio along the canal towpath for a nice weather day. Need to call for reservation on weekend!

Here for lunch, ordered the Caesar Salad with Shrimp. There were 3 shrimp ( shouldn't be less than 5 for lunch), salad was overly dressed- was soggy, I think the croutons used to be larger too- these were ordinary like from the market. We used...More

Every time we're in this neck of the woods, we end up at Lilly's. Great food every time. We always leave stuffed and regretful we couldn't eat more.
