We stopped here for lunch and unfortunately we could not sit on the patio because of heavy fog. The fish cakes and chowder were excellent with good service. In addition, you are supporting a registered charity.
Food was mediocre. Bland. Simple.
Service was truly pathetic from start to finish.
Patio is decent. On a lake/pond.
Had the chowder, which had good quality seafood in it, decent flavour.
Scallop trio was meh. Veggies were abysmal. Poutine with gravy was cafeteria grade.

I'm sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit to Lily's. Please understand this is not our usual level of service. Thank you for letting us know.
I contacted Lily's about hosting a very small (4-person) bridal brunch back before Covid restrictions had loosened. Even though it was small, I still wanted it to feel special, more than just a breakfast. Shyla was very helpful with my questions about arrangements beforehand, such...as ensuring I would have a table by the window, answering my questions about balloons, and arranging to have mimosas delivered automatically when we arrived. It all went like clock work. The server was very attentive and the meal was delicious. Although the view wasn't spectacular because it was a foggy, drizzly day, the atmosphere was still lovely... warm and inviting. All four of us enjoyed it immensely. Thank you, Lily's!More
After a lengthy stay at Hopewell Rocks and easily the most-fun drive of my life, through Fundy National Park and the coast to Saint John, we looked for a restaurant to just take a load off and enjoy; Lily's was one of the first that...popped up and we're so happy we went.
We were seated and our excellent server was prompt with everything; unusually, my wife and I ordered the same thing, blackened Haddock Tacos with mango, with a side Caesar Salad (for my wife) and Wild Rice (for me). The tacos were beyond delicious and a treat for the eyes as well; aside from the mango, they were almost identical to the haddock tacos I make at home. My rice had a lot of non-wild rice in it, but it was excellent as well, so no complaints.
We usually never get dessert, as it's a bit pricey and we're usually full, but the pastry chef at Lily's is someone from Quebec, trained in French Confectionary, thus my wife ordered a Chocolate Mousse Cake and I got a Rhubarb Cheesecake, with a Strawberry Coulis. Man, what an absolute treat for the senses, so tart, so sweet, everything blended perfectly.
With a great view overlooking Lily Lake, it was a wonderful meal indeed.More
Pre-pandemic, loved this place especially during summer for outdoor dining, they allow dogs on patio
We used to eat breakfast here often after walking around the lake. This was our first visit since COVID and it was not as good 😞
Frittata was very underwhelming,...it used to have better fillings, now it’s just scrambled eggs with basic fillings. Will not order it again and the price seems high for what you get. They also forgot to serve it with home fries so I had to wait until I was almost finished before they were brought out
Steak was very dry, should not have asked for well done, it was like leather. Will try this again and ask for medium-rare. It used to be a favourite
Eggs Benedict looked good based on table next door so will try that next time
Coffee was great as usual
Server was friendly and brought water for our dog. The food was delivered timely as well.
We will definitely give this another try and hope that this visit is not the new norm otherwise one of our favourite breakfast places will become an absolute no go.More
Celebrating my sisters birthday at lunch time and I forgot to make a reservation(my bad). However, manager Tony found us seated in a timely fashion and I saved face. Our very busy waiter Sarah took exceptional care of us with a smile and ease. To...top off the meal for her birthday they offered a complimentary ice cream crêpe with a sumptuous raspberry sauce large enough to share. We make this our go to lunch spot often and they never disappoint !!!More

We were very underwhelmed by our Sunday brunch experience. The menu lacks anything out of the ordinary, the skillet was bland and fairly tasteless, saved only by dumping the barely warm serving of beans over the top. My wife asked for a dairy free option,...but had the cheese AND aioli left out of her wrap, when she asked for the aioli on the side (as it's a non dairy product) it seemed like an issue and we could overhear the staff talking about it later.More

What used to be a great experience has turned into a nightmare.The service is so slow now and the quality of food is terrible the last three visits.It took 1 hour and 15 minutes to get food to table the last time and the scallops...were raw and fish was mushy.We will be taking a break from going here until they fix thingsMore
