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

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...

We stopped in to one of our favorite restaurants on Friday night for dinner. As usual it was a great meal, we really like the salad bar, lots of choices and always fresh. It's our go to place when we want a quiet dinner. Emile's is a great place to end your wine tour.

A place to eat where casual wear and a casual drink puts you in a casual mood. Great prime rib, steaks, veal that's tender and fresh, and of course pasta. A very plentiful salad bar that doesn't seem so, until you return to your table and realize what you have placed on the plate. I guarantee that you won't leave... More

Nice friendly atmosphere. The service was excellent and our food was very good. My husband and I both had the chicken Alfredo and the portions were huge!! Very good prices for the amount of food you get. Our waitress was extremely friendly.

Very nice place a bit outdated but, who cares. The salmon was excellent and the staff was on top of their game. This is a nice affordable restaurant. The shrimp cocktail was also excellent! If I'm ever back in the area, I will definitely come back for a nice dinner.....
