Lily’s bistro is a family run, eclectic American restaurant in Dayton’s historic Oregon District. Our menus are updated each and every day, allowing us to focus on what is fresh and also inspiring creativity in our kitchen. Our vibe is “nice dining,” which to us means modern interpretations of good food in an unfussy and welcoming atmosphere. Our friendly bartenders focus on creative and fresh craft cocktails alongside a seasonal selection of beer and wine.

We work with many local purveyors to support our fellow small businesses, and feature farm to table and organic food as much as possible. Because we change our menus daily, we are able to source a great deal of regional products.

We serve lunch Tuesday-Friday, brunch Saturday and Sunday, and our seasonal dinner menu Tuesday-Saturday nights. On Sunday nights, we serve our family style, local, free-range fried chicken dinner

Give us a holler to check the day's specials or with any questions.
