Like most bars and pubs, the noise was overwhelming the Friday night I met friends at Lillie's. Some people like that.......I don't. However.......I still think very highly of this place because it had great great food. I had the chicken pot pie with a side salad and it was terrific......even the salad. Fresh and very tasty, light dressing. The pot pie had nice big pieces of white meat chicken, and just right veggies (not too crisp, but not mushy either) with a really good crust over it all. Everyone at my table also was so pleased with their dishes. I would absolutely reccomend if you are not into the loud, to go to this place for lunch, or dinner mid-week and just enjoy the food and the space. It's a pretty room, and the service, which was good on a busy Friday night, I'm sure is even better during slower times. I don't live far and will surely return and try some of the other offerings on the menu.

At first I was a little off put by the traditional Irish band playing in the window. Seemed kinda cheesey, but that wasn't my experience at all. Just a really inviting and comfortable place for a meal or a few rounds from the bar. The decor is "Victorian Irish" which involves plush velvet booths, guilding, old photos in frames with a lot of scrollwork, and glass doorknobs. They pull it all off in a pub-type atmosphere. Still a couple flat screens to watch games, and plenty of beer (and Magners!) on tap. I had the fish stew and it was great. Service was attentive. With the great location to boot, I'll be back over and over again.

We ventured into Lillie's on a late Friday afternoon and was pleasantly surprised at the lovely atmosphere and quick service. My mom ordered the Guinness battered fish and chips and I had one of specials, grilled shrimp and vegetable risotto. My son and his girlfriend both had the Shepard's pie. All the meals were delicious. We ate every bite. For dessert we ordered the flourless chocolate cake and the cranberry bread pudding with vanilla bean ice cream. Very good! We will be returning.
