The food was unique in a good way! They took traditional dishes and put an unexpected spin on them which we appreciated and enjoyed! Everything we tried was delicious! Our only complaint was that the food and drinks took a while to come out but was fresh and perfect when it did arrive. Worth the wait for sure! The deviled eggs were great, you get three variations, crab topped, bacon and basic. The shrimp Alfredo was delicious as well! The noodles were fluffy and tasted like they were made in house, very fresh. We will definitely be back!

Clever decor on owner's dog theme. A Saturday night very loud atmosphere, even with keyboard musician. My steak ordered medium was medium well-done and lukewarm, house fries overcooked. We waited one hour for food to be served, but not fault of server, who was great. However, we did get a manager's discount of 20% for our trouble. Extensive and reasonably priced wine list.

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The food was delicious and tasty. It is great to see non chain restaurants in the eastern panhandle. Love it, hope it is here to stay.

Went here for a date night, which they advertised on their Facebook page. They had live music from Morris Morris from 7p-9p. MJ was our server, who also served as a bartender. She was super sweet. The owner came around twice to make sure drinks and food were to our liking.

Got to sit outside in a quiet alley. So many great items on the lunch menu I had a hard time deciding. I had the Bahn Mi and my husband had the Italian Stallion flatbread. Both were great! Good beer on tap and extensive cocktail list. Drinks were a little slow, but otherwise the service was great. Highly recommend!

The dinner at Lilah was tremendous. The food was delicious. We had the duck breast, the salmon, and the steak frites, everything was perfectly prepared and very tasty. Highly recommend the fried green tomato appetizer. The service was first class. Love the fact that diners can bring their pers - we can’t wait for our Pup to be a little older so we can bring her along.

Brooke was a delight. They weren't busy at the time we went, so she spent time on us, and brought our extras we needed within a reasonable time period. The food was very tasty. Everyone in our party complimented the food. Was a bit shocked that a couple of bar staples (martini olives, named brand vodka) were not available, but we made do.

2nd time here, first time seated... Likely be back, but please beef up your bar a bit.

Great food, great service - hard to believe that Lilah hasn’t been in this space all along. Having loved the previous establishment, glad to be a part of this new one’s start. Super friendly staff, regardless of who is serving your table, all are attentive.

Lilah’s was an amazing find. The staff, owner, entertainer were all incredibly thoughtful and helpful with our large group of 12 celebrating an anniversary and good times together. We had a wonderful time and the food was absolutely the best. The Bloody Mary buffet and Mimosa buffet were over the top. The best dish by far was the stuffed French toast. But everything else was a close second. The servers were helpful and so nice and accommodating! The piano player sang our happy couple a special song! So wonderful, we plan to come back when In the area again.

Outdoor dining in the alley was great and just what we were in the mood for. The drinks and food were good, the server let us take our time (we were reconnecting after not being together for over a year!) and I will definitely be back.

Overall, we very much enjoyed our food. Margarita was delicious, the starter rolls were delicious and I very much enjoyed my crab cakes. My husband, however, kept biting into his flatbread and hurting his teeth on olives with pitts. We were somewhat surprised they put olives on a flatbread, with pitts still intact. Even after picking visible olives off flatbread, he still bit into pitts. Additionally, I wasn’t thrilled with the warm water that was brought to us at the beginning of the meal but that could have been a server issue. Our server seemed to struggle with delivering efficient, detail oriented service. One example besides the warm water, but there were several more, it took approximately ten minutes to get the tartar sauce that was supposed to arrive with meal. Overall it was a mediocre experience but the food was tasty.

The atmosphere & servers were great, but our food took over an hour after we ordered. My burger came with tomatoes, which I specifically said I did not want, or fries were half way cooked, & my husband's steak was very fatty. We understand that it got busy & perhaps the kitchen got backed up, so we will be back to give it another shot, but there is big room for improvement in that area.

Everyone was super friendly and our waiter Austin was knowledgeable of the menu choices and super friendly and helpful. Just wish I hadn’t had to verify with Open Table that I wasn’t a no show as reported by the restaurant even though I told them I had a reservation when we came into the restaurant.

Service was painfully slow and the food, when we got it, was subpar. Considering how expensive the dinner was, everything should have been WAY better. I don’t mind paying for a great meal but this was far from a great meal. I would not eat here again and would not recommend it.
