We ate lunch outside. Good ambience and good sandwiches with sweet potato fries. Friendly service. The daytime ambience is "laid back." Enjoyable for visit with good friends.

The Emory has a great atmosphere and fantastic decor. Service was polite and speedy and the food - all locally sourced was top notch. Will certainly be back in the future!

Good selection of food and drinks. Friendly wait staff and never tough to find a place to sit. This is a local independent restaurant which is important to us.

Atmosphere is very nice...beautiful wood, crisp lines. Service was only OK...nearly left after waiting at front of restaurant for 10 minutes for some acknowledgement of our existence and seating. We were clearly seen by waitresses who could not be bothered. Doesn't that frost you? I had a burger ---$6 on Tuesday night, Ordered medium well...still came raw inside even though... More

Mike D, Andrea & Sarah are the bomb. I always come back for their impeccable service. Check it out for the $6 burgers on Tuesdays, and stay for the beer. Tip your bartender!!

Three of us went for some beers & burgers. Pretty great local beer selection. The fries and salads were good. Pretty yummy burgers too. The server was busy, but we didn't mind and wanted to hang out. I'd totally go back.

I love all of the wood on the bar and behind the bar and all over, but the food is average at best. I don't come here for the food but the ambiance and to grab a drink.
