Pre/post Theatre
An Irish-Victorian Bar and Restaurant, just steps from Times Square and numerous Broadway plays. The interior has a distinctly late 19th century feel with wooden furnishings brought from Belfast, Ireland.
Serving a wide range of domestic and international beers (30 on tap and 30 bottled). A great selection of whiskeys and wines, including some excellent wine from the Langtry Winery in California where Lillie herself owned and lived for a time.



The food is traditional Pub Fare, including soups, salads, stews, fish and steaks. Lillie's serves food from 11am - 2am. The Irish Breakfast is served all day. Brunch is served on the weekends from 10am to 4pm.

Great for pre-theater meals and/or drinks. The menu was limited and the rib eye was a cheap cut for $34; mostly cartilage that you
could chew. Service was great and the decor was unique.

Great brunch spot for our girl's trip to NYC. The drinks were great, the brunch was perfectly portioned and delicious. We loved the decor and the beautiful bar! The Halloween decorations were the cherry on top.

A long standing favorite, can’t beat the atmosphere! Food is delicious too & the Times Square location is perfect for pre theater dinner. Service was slow this time & they messed up my food order, but I will forgive this gorgeous place practically anything. Yes I will be back, again & again.

Though the inside of the restaurant was a pleasant surprise compared to the outside, the service was marginal, slow and food average.

The decor was nice but the food was subpar. Relatively expensive for no reason. If it tasted better or looked better I could justify the prices.

Always love to stop in when we are in the city. We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful hostess who was able to move us from a high top to a booth. As always the drinks were amazing and so were the nachos. Love the BLT with avocado and egg, my daughter loved her fish and chips, and her friend really enjoyed the grilled chicken sandwich. I just wish we had room for dessert!

Good time before Book of Mormon. Good beet choice, rib eye steaks were also good, shrimp cocktail was the bomb. . Great service and pacing...we were early for our reservation but got seated early. Great ambience.

Ideal if you’re seeing a play in the district and need a place for a quick bite. Not gourmet, but something for everyone in our large crowd.

We went here before the Book of Mormon show and picked it due to its proximity to the theater. The atmosphere is fun and the decor is super eclectic and eye catching. We all enjoyed our meals, and would recommend this to anyone.

As always, Lillie’s Time Square did not disappoint. The service was excellent, the food ample and delicious, and the atmosphere is cozy. There were four in our party and we each had omelette. The seasonal vegetable omelette was delicious with sautéed spinach, broccoli, cherry tomato, and cheese. The home fries were perfectly cooked, the only downside to the meal was the toast was cold. We enjoyed our meal and will definitely come back for brunch.

Went to Lillie’s before seeing a show at the theater. Had good reviews and a cool, Victorian feel but the food was overpriced for what you got and in general low quality.

What great ambiance and decor! Really enjoyed being there. Food was good with a good variety of options. Our server was very kind and helpful. Completely forgot we were in the middle of the Times Square area - you couldn’t feel the hustle and busyness of Times Square from inside the restaurant. So much fun!

Ambience is lovely. Wasn’t as impressed by the food and menu unfortunately. I ordered the guacamole toast and the eggs came out cold. But if you’re looking for eye candy it’s a great place to visit.

We love Lillie's! The decor of this restaurant is beyond description. If you enjoy touring elegant European palaces, this is the place for you. Food and service is very good. And it's a perfect location in the theater district for dinner before a show.

The atmosphere here is great! The drinks are top notch. Unfortunately the food wasn’t the greatest. I think if I would have had high tea, breakfast or lunch it would have been better. There is not much of a selection for dinner. I wish there were more authentic English food options. Mainly the dinner is pub fare. The price is great for New York City. Will definitely go again just not for dinner.

Too expensive. Went over the winter and they had better deals. Not worth an $85 bill for breakfast that is not even that good. Will not go back

The food was good, not great, but good. The atmosphere and decor were fun. The wait staff really wanted the crowd that came for after work drinks and maybe a small plate and turn the table. We were urged to order our dinner with our first drink prior to having a chance to open the menu and rushed from then on out. Inattentive to non existent service once the food arrived and drink refills didn’t happen Might go back for a drink sometime. Period

First off, in this bustling part of town of Times Square, the staff here is wonderful and provided great service. No easy feat with these crowds. Food came quick and was both delicious and reasonable. I definitely would come back to Lillie’s, both in midtown and the Union Square location.

Fascinating venue with lots to look at. Extraordinary, long bar with lots of activity, even on a weeknight. The variety, food, and service were all very good. We had a pleasant evening. A (mistaken) review indicated that there was an Irish Breakfast all day long; I was disappointed to see that wasn't the case. Otherwise, an intriguing venue worth a visit!

Had it not been for the wonderful cocktails from the Bar, the food rating would have been one star. The cheese plate was an absolute mess and the tavern pretzels looked like the microwavable SuperPretzels you can from your local grocer. The ALTs were okay, would have been better if the eggs were warm. Also, big pet peeve of mine, everything came out at once. The server was lovely and like I said earlier, the drinks were great! My advice - good for a drink before a show, just skip the food.

Service and food were great. It’s a bit noisy there and you have to not mind high top tables, but this place is a nice pre-theater go-to spot.

Great pretheater experience. Interesting food which is reaonably priced. Building and decor are very interesting and great conversation starters. Comfortable for a single, couple or group. Casual but upscale.
