Lily’s Seafood – Royal Oak, Michigan
Visit Lily’s Seafood at 410 S. Washington Avenue in Downtown Royal Oak, Michigan and experience a delightful variety of uniquely prepared ocean critters, craft beers and indulgent desserts.
Start your dinner off with a whopping platter of mouth-watering Calimari Lily’s Style, served atop a delicious drizzle of roasted red pepper aioli with an unexpected but surprisingly fitting relish of finely chopped pepperoncini on the side. Tender ’til the last bite, we promise you won’t find this appetizer overly chewy as calimari can so often be. Tablemates of I Love Detroit Michigan also thoroughly enjoyed first courses of Lily’s Creole Soup and the Calypso Crab Cakes.
Top entree recommendations of I Love Detroit Michigan include the ultra-rich Three Cheese Ravioli with Salmon in Chipotle Cream, the extremely meaty North Shore Seafood Pasta, Grandma Lily’s Crabby Pork Chops stuffed with Maryland jumbo lump crabmeat, and the perfectly cooked Steamed Shrimp and Scallop Platter. Worth mentioning but less impressive were the Tuna Burger and the Sesame Crusted Chicken Salad.
Lily’s also features a full bar and a decent selection of quality wines. Beer drinkers will be more than impressed with their intriguing roster of handcrafted beers, brewed on site. You can even schedule a tour of their brewing facilities if you happen to discover your new all-time favorite amongst their choices.
One more thing, dear readers: if you’re unfamiliar with Downtown Royal Oak and you don’t ride a motorcycle, do yourself a huge favor and avoid showing up on a Wednesday or Thursday night in the Summer for reasons clearly articulated here. ~I♥DM
