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

Without doubt, my favorite restaurant in Beaufort. Really two restaurants in one: the left side is the bar side which is always filled with people having a good time; the right side is the more intimate setting with tables for from 2 to 6. The right side is reminiscent of a French bistro or some secret special spot hidden away... More

Extensive menu, including good seafood and numerous beef selections. Wine list is large, and priced fairly. My wife and I dined on a Wednesday night, and had a table in the dining room, away from the bar, as that is quieter and has better atmosphere. We started with shared tapas- curried shrimp was very good, with a spicy, but not... More

My husband and I stopped in for an early dinner on our trip to Beaufort after reading some fairly good reviews. I guess they are more used to locals than tourists. The staff hung out at the bar with a group of loud patrons for most of our visit. Our waiter was very nice, and we had no complaints with... More

Friends for dinner. The food was excellent. French onion soup, Cypreses salad, side salad were all excellent. The mushroom caps stuffed with lump crab, rack of lamb [8 ribs], beef tournedos with Bearnaise were excellent. The tempura shrimp which were jumbo were fair. The service was very friendly, and competent with the exception of presenting the bill without our requesting... More

My wife and I had a dinner that was above average. The atmosphere is quiet, relaxing, and very calming. There are two dining areas, the bar and the dining. I recommend the dining area for the best atmosphere. The salads were generous and the house dressing was very good, not overpowering with balsamic vinegar taste but just enough to enhance... More

Tapas and regular entrees, supplemented by daily specials at prices, including drinks and exceptional service (from Brian), that made for a perfect, unhurried, enjoyable evening!

Short walk from downtown marina. The atmosphere was very pleasing and wait staff did above average. The salad was fresh and tasty. Of the four dinners served two were rated excellent and two average. All four of us said we would definitely return if back in town.
