    It's fine dining at a fraction of the cost you would find in Halifax. It's local, not a huge restaurant. We love it.

    Tilley’s is my favourite restaurant in Nova Scotia and I come here for dinner whenever I’m passing through New Glasgow. Their steak is always perfectly cooked and delicious. Mussels are outstanding, salads are fresh and flavourful and seafood dishes are excellent. Well thought out wine list and there are wonderful cocktails and beers too. I always order a crumble for dessert. Seating is warm and relaxing. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Even if New Glasgow is not your destination, Tilley’s is worth stopping in for a great meal.

    Our server, Angela, was friendly & efficient. Her tongue-in-cheek quote: " it's really all about the service, not the food". We're thinking Chef Brad might disagree. He continues to plate beautiful meals, picture-ready and full of flavour. Tilly's is a celiac's dream, with almost everything on the menu being gluten free. Tilly's is worth the drive and worth the money. Best possible way to spend an evening with good friends. Thanks again to their team!

    Absolutely hands down a dining experience that sets the standard for eating out. All levels of the establishment from being greeted by smiling hostess, kind and knowledgeable waitresses, chefs that take extreme pride in preparing all dishes, to the owner visiting your table to make sure everything was perfect. Once you have had the privilege of eating at Tilly’s your standard of dining out will forever be changed by having higher expectations when dining out.

    We went for a late Valentines dinner and it was well worth the wait. Our server Angela was very attentive and made us feel welcome upon arrival. We started with mussels and the crab/prawn cakes as appetizers and both were excellent. As much as we always say we are going to try something different we usually land on the steak. They had a surf and turf special on that we couldn’t pass on. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the seafood was very well cooked. A Crème brûlée finished off the meal and we left already talking about our next visit. Thanks again Tilly’s

    On a scale of one to ten, the whole evening was a twenty. Every course that was served was perfectly timed and the food presented beautifully. The taste of the multiple courses were beyond delicious. The courses took me out of my comfort zone and then in return gave me a culinary experience. Without a doubt, it was the best tenderloin I've ever had. The smoked trout...... oh my gawd! The staff were their normal friendly and efficient selves. They make the dinner that much better. Thanks to you all!

    We had a great Valentines dinner at Tilly's this evening. We both had the steak and it was cooked to perfection. All 4 courses were excellent. The waitress was very good and always asked how each course was and if we needed anything else. All in all a perfect night. Thanks to all the staff for putting on a wonderful evening.

    I had the burger and it was the best burger I had since I lived in Alberta. I forget who the young lady we had as a waitress but she was amazing and very friendly. I would give this place an 11 out of 10 if it was even possible.
