Nice relaxing dinner

This was our second time at Emily's. We were celebrating our 46th anniversary. We both had Filet Mignon and it was excellent!

There is simply no better piece of meat I have ever eaten. My filet was cooked to perfection and the sauce was excellent.

I had a great meal with my family at Emily's. The seafood is to die for. The staff was great and we even had a trainee as a server and she did awesome! Her name was Allison, she was super friendly, attentive and engaged in our group! Awesome food, awesome environment!

I visited this restaurant because it had decent reviews on Trip Advisor. My wife and I ate an early dinner there last week. They weren't busy, but we're turning away people who arrived after us for lack of reservations. When we arrived they had empty tables and even though service was slow when we left they had empty tables. I... More

Emily's is one of our favorite places to go in Beaufort, and we live here, The tapas menu is unbelievable-I don't know how they can do so much with such a small kitchen. The French Onion soup is, bar none, the best we've ever had. Good beer and wine selection, and you can either sit on the bar side or... More

Emily's came highly recommended to us, and we had dinner there one evening. We expected a fine dining experience, and we're very surprised at the lack of friendly service. Our waitress was efficient but very gave very short answers and seemed to rush away from the table even though it was a slow weeknight! I had the filet which was... More

This place was recommended to us by the owners of the local B & B The staff were ok but i just found the place a little unkept and dirty. Especially the floors and the bathrooms ! Time to get the cleaner in i think guys.

We go to Emily's everytime we are in town. It is the warmest, friendliest place in Beaufort. I have never had anything less than an excellent experience. The Shrimp and Grits are the Best! the tapas are amazing as well!

Went to Emily's for our anniversary. Great waitress, who was actually in training. Great red snapper and shrimp and grits. The red snapper was as good or better than what I used to get on the Gulf Coast of Florida. The shrimp and grits is different than the usual. Andouille sausage and thicker grits than "normal" combined with the local... More
