Nice ambience but food lacking somewhat. Octopus appetizer @$18 spongy and overpowered with salty ‘chorizo’ Tasteless $18 burger served with burned, double reheated fries. Shrimp and grits swimming in a oily tomato bath. Presentation good but not enough to pull the dish together.

We had lunch here last week and loved it. Our server was very good. I had one of the best burgers of my life and the other three in our group had the salmon which they enjoyed. The place is classy and intimate. I recommend.

Disappointing evening. We have gone to Lilly's on several occasions in the past and all were good. But Thursday night was mediocre. Two of the four in our party left disappointed. My red snapper special was not special; the dish was a mess with conflicting...More
