    Normally I have an excellent time at this place but on Sunday it was absolutely horrible. I took my mom to brunch for the drag show and we had to yell at each other to communicate, she was right across from me and this was before the show. The food was cold upon arrival and we couldn’t find a waitress, or anyone, to make them aware of this problem. Plus the staff was nonexistent after the show started (late btw). After tripping someone to get out check, we ended up leaving early. This is not the sheptown experience that I know.

    Live music was the initial draw. Panhandle Dan and crew had a nice eclectic blend and volume level allowed comfortable conversation. Great fish sandwich and burger. Good beer selection.

    Lovely dinner in a nicely decorated and comfortable restaurant on the main street of Shepherdstown WV. We chose a table for two by the front window to enjoy people and their dogs walking by. Today was Dog Fest, and many breeds were in tow. The French Dip sandwich with sweet potato fries was big enough to share, and the Shish Kabob had fresh vegetables and chicken. No room for dessert, but we will save room next time!

    Restaurant and food were great. Nice to have live music but it was too loud. Recommend music perform without amp or mic. Restaurant is small enough that amplification isn't needed. Music level made it very hard to converse with friends at our table.

    Our wait person did an excellent job, considering that she was new to the position. . . . We thought the music a little loud for us to carry on a conversation, but at our request it quickly was turned down--and the music was good.

    Due to covid, we appreciated that there is outdoor dining. Although all 3 of us have certain food restrictions (grain-free / low carb / sugar free,) we easily found a few really great options. We really enjoyed our meals and the wait-staff were wonderful. We're definitely making Lilah our restaurant-of-choioce whenever we go to Shepherdstown.

    Service was very slow, our waiter and front door staff were both rather rude. The show started late and our food came out cold. Definitely disappointed considering we really have loved lilahs in the past. However, the last two times we have received the same service.

    This place is a hoot! The only reason I didn't give it more stars on service is because we were waiting for sometime for our items but it was during a special Drag Show event (which was incredible). Everything was fun and the hangover biscuits and gravy are to die for!

    We were visiting friends m southern Maryland; our first time back since COVID. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety and quality of both food and beverage. All the small ones lates, starters, soups, and sandwiches looked delicious but we decided on sharing the deviled eggs, Reuben & sweet potato fries. All were delicious. Lilahs also has a great selection of beers and cocktails. 👍 Well be back on n July!

    I went for the drag brunch, despite being a brunch with a special menu there wasn’t an eggs Benedict available. Kinda weird for brunch but I understand, the chicken and waffles were good but they use the cheaper artificial syrup rather than organic. The drag queens were amazing and the servers were all extremely nice and as attentive as possible to the customers. Overall I’d say that lilahs may need to work on their ingredients and menu but I was there for a special event so take this review with a grain of salt.

    We went to Lilah for the Valentines wine pairing dinner. The service was very good as was most of the food. I thought it was a little overpriced for what we got but I typically don’t mind paying a little more to small independent businesses. We plan on returning in the near future to try the normal menu.

    As a regular of Shepherdstown restaurants, Lilah is, without a doubt, one of the best. The owner is delightful, stylish, and always there when I dine, making sure that the ambience is set and that things are running smoothly. Whereas other Shepherdstown eateries are a little more casual, Lilah’s is a bit more of a sit-down type of place. Their frequent live music (sometimes they even have drag shows!) - as well as there adorable dog-themed decorations - help create a nice atmosphere that’s perfect for celebrations, dates, and just good ol’ regular-day dining. Thirdly, but most importantly, their menu is great and the reason I keep returning. For one, their appetizers are great for sharing (I recommend the fried green bean fries and the deviled eggs). Furthermore, they have an assortment of dishes in terms of protein selection and types (salads, sandwiches, flatbreads, and other entrees). For vegetarians, vegans, and other admirers of plant-based foods, Lilah has several options - particularly with their appetizers. Additionally, their flatbreads seem to be easily modified to accommodate plant-based diets, and they have a vegan mushroom risotto. Lastly, Lilah has a weekly Sunday brunch which is incredible. I strongly recommend making a reservation, as Lilah got quite busy within an hour of being open when I went. On another note, I would even argue that Lilah is best enjoyed during brunch, as they offer almost all (if not all) of their regular appetizers, their large drink selection, and have a plethora of brunch-only options. Overall, Lilah is an incredible addition to Shepherdstown. The owner, chefs, and staff all work hard to create a little slice of comfort, delicious tasting food, and atmosphere.
