Walked in the door for a late dinner. It was painfully loud between the TV and the music and the patrons trying to talk over the raucous noise. It actually hurt my ears. .... won't be back.

We have had many very nice meals at Emil's. The Friday fish fry is very good. Lovely soups and salads. Good burgers. The atmosphere can be a bit loud (it is a sports bar) however, they are very family friendly. They have been very accommodating in terms of preparing salads to my personal liking. A great place to go to... More

Emils has been a staple in lake county for years. It does pretty good pizza and the rest of the faire is solid, tasty offering. If you're in the mood for quality comfort food go here.

Emil's is a decent all-round bar and restaurant with a large bar area as well as a dining room. TVs in all areas and the bar is noisier than the dining room as a rule.

Done mostly take out or delivery usually never a mistake with orders though sometimes the young employee's taking the order over the phone sometimes get confused, so double check at the end of ordering that they have it correct.

We love Emil's. We bring the kids and join our friends and it's a great time. We can watch the big screens or talk. Sometimes it gets real loud so if you don't like noise this is not your place. But their pizza is amazing. You can't stop eating it even when you are full

Fun place and popular with the locals. Good pub food, pizza and beer selections. Deep dish pizza, burgers and wraps are very good. Large choice of draft and bottle beers. Seating and bar areas have lots of TVs tuned to sports, including a massive screen on one end. While it can be crowded at times, the food is brought out... More

The best broasted chicken around. The chicken, rib and shrimp platter is great. Emils pizza is a winner.
