Where it all began…
Originally, from New Jersey, James Tilquist (known to all as “Tillie”) has been a restaurateur since 1989. He opened his first restaurant at age 22. Since then he’s owned 8 restaurants, (including the popular Crazy Wings in Mount Dora) and three bars. As a high school student, Tillie delivered Seven-Up and RC Cola to his neighborhood food establishments during the summer vacation. He liked what he saw and has never lost his love for the food industry. That passion is evident in the attention to detail and dedication to serving quality food to his customers.
Currently, Tillie owns and operates two other local establishments here in beautiful Eustis. The El Marie Pizzaria and Sub Shoppe and Tillie’s Tavern and Grill bring reasonably priced good food to the area.
Indulge yourself to a sumptuous freshwater fish and seafood like Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Lobster, Crab Legs & Shrimp. A plate made in ocean!
Our full bar offers our guests high-quality refreshing, flavorful favorites along with our uniquely master crafted specialty cocktails. Chill and have fun!
