mistake

We went here because the restaurant we wanted to go to for a burger was closed. Big mistake. The restaurant is fine and service is good.....but the burgers are a ridiculous size and poor quality. My guys were very disappointed and left most of their meal.

Work colleague took me here. All the food was exceptionally average. If you do go get the fried potatoes and skip the burger. Beer is cheap at least.

So for years Emma's had been known as the place to go for huge portions of schnitzel, steak and sausages. They even have a big burger with a pound of bun. Recently it seems Emma's is under nee ownership or management and the food quality has suffered greatly. Even the wait staff has changed in this go-to spot for tourists... More

Oh my gosh ... huge portions .... really! Definitely go for the quarter portion unless you're either starving or intending to take home a doggie bag! The food was very delicious -- I had the schnitzel Bolognese, and my hubby had the cordon bleu ... both were great, and we both took portions home! My daughter ordered the half-size hamburger...
