This is a great space with very friendly service and a good all around selection of tappas. We will come back the next time we pass through!

Small restaurant located downtown with great romantic atmosphere with very good varied menu Tappas or traditional entree. You definitely need reservations, as the place fills up quickly.

This place can bring them in. If you don't have reservations, plan on eating really or late into the evening. If you're lucky, you may find a spot at the bar, and if you do, go play the lato.

Every time I come to Beaufort I must visit this restaurant. The seafood is exceptionally good. I strongly suggest having a small cup of Emily's superb she crab soup w/ a touch of sherry. It's a repeat. Wonderfully stocked bar a somewhat large selection of wines.

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.
