The choices are amazing. Plenty of seafood and unique dishes like andouille sausage and wild boar sausage. Great French Onion and she crab soup. Emily's is known for its mouthwatering Steak Au Poivre. If you are visiting Beaufort, you must visit this well known establishment. I have never had a bad meal here and have frequented this restaurant for over... More

Visited Emily's for the first time last week with a group of six. We were promptly seated in a comfortable booth in the front of the restaurant. The menu is extensive and has a wide variety of tapas. The steak au poivre and French onion soup were outstanding but the service was even better. Our server, Tara was very friendly... More

We were in Beaufort and decided to have dinner and chose Emily's. What a great choice it was. We had the Tournedos and the Steak au Poivre. The sauce on the latter was superb. The meat on both entrees was tender, tasty, and cooked to order. The escargot appetizer was the best escargot I have ever had. And the She... More

The food selection and the quality of food was excellent, plus nice atmosphere. My wife and I go out to dinner at least five nights a week and eat in many cities around the country and our meal last night was as good as we have eaten in the last few years.

We went with another couple who were visiting us. We decided to order She Crab soup to start. It was good (not the best we've ever had, but still quite good). Instead of ordering dinners, we ordered some tapas to share. Each was excellent. Molly provided attentive service. We recommend Emily's.

We ate here in the fall and had an excellent experience. No so this time. The bread did not come out until well into the salads. We had to ask. The entrees appeared, two then two more. My wife's veal was cold. My andouille sausage was over cooked. My pate was very good and a generous portion. I ordered the... More

The food was o.k., not bad nor outstanding. I had the oysters Rockefeller which tended to be rather unmemorable. We had reservations which still seemed to confuse our hostess and server though we showed them the online confirmation. We typically tip 18-20 percent and realize some things are beyond the server's control. But, this group needs more training.

Food was great. Our waitress seemed to be new and a little inexperienced. The hostess seemed confused about our reservation even though the restaurant had plenty of seats. Charming decor and noise level was kept to a minimum.
