My husband I walked up on Emily's by accident. We had no idea that a reservation was absolutely necessary. We ended being seated at the bar. The steak at this place is to die for. The restaurant was quaint and had great atmosphere. Again, make sure you call ahead to see if you need reservations. I think this experience would... More

We love Emily's tapas menu.....my personal favorite is the bacon-wrapped scallops. She crab soup and French onion soup are also yummy. Good service and great atmosphere.

Probably the best food and service in Beaufort! We go there at least once a week and usually sit at the bar with Ed or Michael. Always get great service and great food! There tapas are prefect to try a few of the different things that there chef, Mike Long, prepares. The staff there really makes everyone feel at home.... More

We're new to the area and recently discovered Emily's, and don't hesitate to bring visiting friends there. "Best steak I've ever had," claims my husband, and a best friend and oyster snob claims the Oysters Trio is the best she's ever had as well! Tonight we dined with family and were able to carry on an intimate conversation without shouting.... More

We came to this restaurant bases on local recommendations and they did not disappoint. Service was great and we mixed tapas with a main course and it was excellent. Ambiance was great. Perfect meal for our 20 year anniversary.

Restaurant clean & nice casual with linen and nice flatware. Ambiance good for an old building, staff first rate, pleasant, but service slow as under staffed but it was... More

Went here on a Sunday evening for my wife's birthday.. Our table was ready even though we were early and we were seated next to the window. Molly got us started with wine and we ordered their "famous" French onion soup. This is not to be missed. A bowl would make a meal. It is so cheesy and tasty. My... More

Fun, creative and tasty menu. Good service, not too pushy, not too lax. Great portion sizes, good prices and in a very cozy setting.

We absolutely loved this place. Our server, Vanessa, was great. She knew everything about the wide menu and made us want to try everything. Our favorite was the bacon wrapped scallops from tapas menu and the tomato & mozzarella salad. We have been vacationing in this area for 14 years and just found this amazing place. We can't wait to... More

I visit Beauford often and always cap my visit off with a really great dinner at Emily's to have the Steak Tartare. I have had steak tartare in other places, but the wait staff and presentation makes the restaurant very special! My personal favorite is, you don't have to worry about your food getting cold, ha!
