Tie between Lily's Seafood and Mitchell's Fish Market

TIE

Lily's Seafood

410 S. Washington Ave., Royal Oak; 248-591-5459; lilysseafood.com

Mitchell's Fish Market

370 N. Adams, Rochester Hills; 248-340-5900; mitchellsfishmarket.com

Straight from the kitchen of "Grandma Lily," Lily's offers a stunning interior, friendly service and a dedication to homemade food. Even the beverage menu includes house-brewed beer and root beer for the kids. Both entrees and desserts are delights of flavor and texture. Saturdays and Sundays cater to a "build your own Bloody Mary bar," and Tuesday is "create your own combo" night. Mitchell's has variety: With more than 80 seafood choices, menus are printed twice a day to reflect changes in availability. Summer is the season for soft-shell crab as well as an Alaskan halibut, though there's a short window in early summer when high-quality Copper River salmon from British Columbia will be on offer. Outdoor dining is a draw, as is Monday oyster night.
