Lily's is always a wonderful place to eat. The food is fresh with interesting choices. Love the winter buffets held last Friday of the month Jan. - April. So many choices but leave some extra room for Lucie homemade desserts.You don't want to miss out on those. Have always had attentive friendly service willing to help with anything you need,... More

The food is great and the service exceptional, always accommodating and friendly. On a recent visit they recommended the small bite dessert for 3.99 and it did not disappoint with carrot cake and...

I've been to Lily's Café for both lunch and dinner and now more recently to the Friday night Buffet. Every time I am pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and more importantly the excellent service we receive.

A dozen friends went to Lily's and had a wonderful Buffet meal in the Lilly pad room. The selection of food was great; really enjoyed the seafood dishes. I have never had a mediocre or bad meal here.

A group of 6 of us ate here on December 23. I had eaten here before and found it to be good but not exceptional. While some of the meals were good, 2 people had the lemon chicken which was quite charred. I had it on my previous visit and recommended it and it definitely was not the same. I... More

I'm not from the Saint John area however I'm there quite often. I have ate in several restaurants in the area. A friend recommended Lily's for our staff Christmas dinner. I didn't know what to expect. Lily's menu is very diverse, offering something for most tastes. From the starters to the entrees, all are gourmet quality! Original ideas as well.... More
