Great little restaurant in Tullahoma; a hidden gem

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner here while we were in town on business in August, 2015. Cute little restaurant in a refurbished house. It was a beautiful evening so we dined outside on the porch. What a nice treat. The menu was wide, varied, and inventive. Lots of wonderful appetizer and main... read more

I have eaten here DOZENS of times since they first opened and have NEVER been disappointed. The food and atmosphere is amazing. Try the tomato soup, crab cakes , mussels, buffalo shrimp, covina, prime rib... you just can't go wrong! Do check their hours however.

This was our first visit to Emil's and I wasn't disappointed. I could not get past the salads and that is what I had. It was very fresh and good. My husband had the Chicken Daniel and it was great. I had to taste it too. The atmosphere is so pleasant and beautiful. The old home is beautiful and makes... More

This restaurant is in a turn of the century home and many of the details of the home are still intact. The stained glass window is beautiful in the dining room. The food was beautifully prepared and the taste was spectacular. Service is top notch! I highly recommend this restaurant in Tullahoma, Tn.

I have had a few hit or miss experiences with dinner at Emil's, but I can almost always rely on the lunch buffet. There always plenty of offerings.. the cold bar is usually well stocked with cold salads and fresh items. There is always fish and chicken which has never disappointed, and the sides are usually quite good. There is... More

Emil's is the best restaurant in town by far. My wife and I go here almost every week and it's the only sit-down restaurant in town that we do go to. Georges Martin, the owner/chef, is especially adept at preparing fish dishes, although on our most recent visit, I had the pork tenderloin and it was the best I've ever... More

My husband has talked about how wonderful this place is. He has had lunch meetings here. He took me here for Valentine's Dinner. It was OK, nothing special. The bread and drinks were slow at arriving. I had the prime rib, large helpings. He had Chicken Daniel, this is one of their signature dishes again just OK. The service was... More

I had a business meeting for two people today. We had a roomy table in a quiet room where we could work openly. The service was perfect and the food delicious
