We went in for a late dinner and asked about the most popular rolls. Ended up getting the Cizz, the Crunchy Royal, and the Tempura Lobster. All were delicious, but the Cizz was our favorite. Everything was well prepared and tasted very fresh. I know many people are hesitant to eat sushi away from the coast. We were very pleased... More

We went to Lil's with the family so it was a mix of age as well as tastes. All the food was outstanding. The sushi was fresh with plenty of unique selections. I loved the tuna and avocado poke. For the non-sushi eaters in the family they have a good selection as well. My niece had the filet and absolutely... More

The sushi here is fantastic, as are the starters (some of which are actually the size of a main course!). Defintely make sure to book in advance! Or call in and maybe you'll get lucky.

Ate here on New Year's Eve 2016-17. Excellent menu with choice of standard fair and sushi. I have several of the starters and 3 sushi rolls. The dynamo shrimp was fantastic. The sushi was quite good thought not the best I've had. But given that you are in a reasonably remote mountain town, I'd say the sushi was quite good.... More

The one place we always make sure to get reservations before coming to CB. The fillet is always excellent but the sushi is incredible. You must order the cizz roll for appetizer. The service and food is some of the best in cb. They even have real kraft Mac n cheese for the little ones. Fish n chips rally good... More

We stayed in Crested Butte for 2 nights and wound up at Lil's both nights. The first night we sat at the bar and ordered from their specials menu. The bar tenders were extremely friendly and accommodating even telling us about other restaurants to try. We walked town the second night and decided we had such a great meal at... More

Description
We are known as having the highest quality fish in town. Our fish is flown in 6 days a week within 24 hours from the docks. We offer a nightly happy hour every night at the bar from 5:30-6:30. In the summer we have a beautiful patio with heaters...and soon a fire pit table! We are a casual restaurant with a warm friendly charm, just like our town of Crested Butte. Private parties available and reservations are recommended but not needed.
