    The food was wonderful. My mom can't have dairy or gluten and there were so many good, delicious options for her. Drinks and food all were very tasty. Decor is cute and we were in the second room which was very quiet. Our server was friendly and we had a great time

    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.

    We went for dinner. We were greeted when we went in hte for, escorted to our table. Our Server Jacob arrived in a minute, brought us water and bread, took our orders, and when ready delivered our meals. Jacob was at all times attentive to how we were doing, the tastes, and took care of us. We enjoyed ourselves, and will be back. The comment ion noise, is because I have hearing aids, once I lowered the volume and focused the microphones, all was good.

    Food was excellent. Everyone had a different meal and they were all good. My husband and I had two different flatbread pizzas. We really liked both of them. Generous portions. I could not eat all of mine. Another diner had a to go box for part of her dinner. Wine list is extensive and they have a huge amount of draft beers as well as bottles and cans from which to choose. The draft beers are good ones, not like Bud Light or such. Waitress was very attentive. It was a good experience. We have not been at Lilahs before but as locals, we will return.

    Was my first time visiting the establishment after begins recommended it by several people. The service was top notch, we were checked in on several times throughout our time there. The food was phenomenal! The stuffed French toast was such a nice treat for a fall Sunday morning! The ambiance was fantastic very new age hipster chic, there was a gentleman playing Christmas music and it just had the whole place wrapped up in the atmosphere. Pricing wasn’t bad either for the quality of experience you receive when dining here. 10/10 recommend every try the brunch experience here definitely an experience I won’t forget!
