Emily's offers Beaufort's most creative menu, an extensive list of tapas that combine Spanish antojitos with variations on the usual Southern themes. Portions are considerably larger than the usual tapas plate, and prices can mount up quickly. I opted for the artichokes as a starter, followed by a... read more

Easy to find with lots of parking near by. Kind of a neat little place with a bar on one side and a good dining room on the other. Great wait staff, friendly and well informed,attentive but not overly so. Had the she crab soup and the oyster trio and a fried soft shell crab. All were very well presented.... More

Continuing to seek out various dining spots while touring Beaufort, SC, I spotted Emily's, very close to our B & B. With reservations in hand, we were seated promptly and took in the club-like atmosphere. All looked promising until my entre' was placed in front of me. I ordered the sea food combo platter, broiled, which was to consist of... More

We enjoyed our meal at Emily's. The server was very attentive and pleasant. The food was well prepared and delightful. They have a nice selection of Tapas and feature fresh local seafood. The Gumbo was a standout, delicious, and a true taste of the Low Country. We look forward to dining there again.

We went to Emily's on a visit during the airshow. We enjoyed the oysters and could have had more. The soft shell crabs were a seasonal treat for us and one of us had a nice steak. The atmosphere was quiet and service very helpful and attentive.

We shared a shrimp salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette (which was amazing) and the oyster trio, lamb, scallops with bacon wrap, and stuff mushrooms. The only one that really stood out was the stuff mushroom. I also had their bourbon blend which was good and a dark and stormy which also was good. Service was good except for one period where...

My husband booked here for our anniversary dinner during our get-away to Beaufort. Our waiter steered us toward the steak au poivre. We don't order red meat very often but we were really glad we did. It was wonderful! It came with starch and vegetable (asparagus) and the house salad. We added an order of seafood-stuffed mushrooms from the tapas... More

Tonight Ann served us one of the best meals we've had in a long time, anywhere, anytime. The meals were prepared to absolute perfection, were plated with great care, Ann was very friendly and prompt, and the atmosphere in the restaurant was very much to our liking. We had other fine meals in Beaufort, this being our first visit, but... More
