Excellent Food

Emile's has wonderful and a salad bar. Nice selection of many types of food. The waitresses are very efficient and the wait time for food is small. The restaurant also has a full bar.

Food was great, large portions. Excellent service. We were camping at Sampson State park and decided to go into town and have dinner. It was suggested to try Emile's which we did. The food was really good and would go back.

We started coming to Emile's one day, when we are traveling around the Finger Lakes and we looking for a dinner place. Walked in and we fell in love. Great family feel. Lovely salad bar. Wonderful prime rib dinner, generous cut! Since that visit we have returned every year at least once. Some years, we have decided to take the... More

Emile's is tucked away, but a must find for people traveling through the Finger Lakes Region. Friendly service from a long-time family owned business is top notch. The food is great - probably the best prime rib I've had anywhere. Perfectly seasoned and cooked. Bar has cracker barrel wine cheese and crackers - you don't see this anywhere else! Good... More

A very varied menu, nice atmosphere, friendly service. I got Salmon and it was very good. The salad bar was good - but there were not very many choices. I would definitely come back here.

Very clean and friendly restaurant, food is always excellent and the salad bar is great. Lots of fresh items to choose from on the salad bar, and have never had a bad meal or dessert. Do not leave without trying a dessert!

Tonight was my birthday and my girlfriend wanted to take me out for a birthday dinner. My girlfriend ordered the Scallops a la Newburg. She told me the scallops had great flavor and were very tender. I had the prime rib, I am a big man so I had the Emiles cut. This rib was very impressive, cooked to perfection... More

Have given this place 5 stars before. Can't be quite so generous this time. Half full on a Saturday night. There must be some reason. My "beer-battered" haddock and shrimp was fried in some kind of dough, which reminded me of the hot dogs at the fair. Way too gooey. The wife enjoyed her linguine and clam sauce. The salad... More

Emile's restaurant is a personal and family favorite.....we go there often and for family special occasions. The wait staff is pleasant and efficient. There is an excellent salad bar...we often eat too much of it and then have to take part of our dinner home. A varied menu. Reasonable prices. Good portions. Every dish we have had (which is most...
