Dinner was good, not worth it for lunch or breakfast

We ate three meals here and the only one that we would return for was dinner...good service and very good food (beef and scallops were excellent, hubby had seafood fettuccini and loved it). At lunch the waitress brought the wrong item and when I told her it wasn't what I ordered, she said "yes you... read more

We came for Prime Rib night at the buffet and arrived just before opening. We clearly stated what we were there for (buffet); however, we were told something about accommodating a large group coming in very soon but given a later time to return (1.5 hours later). When we did return, we were shown to a table and given menus... More

We wanted to go to the Mother's Day Brunch at Emily's/Quinault Casino but it was sold out. We decided to try the restaurant and the $2.99 special which includes a meat side, 2 eggs, toast and hash-browns. The food was way better than expected (considering we spent $7 the night before for a side of broccoli at another place down... More

A round table for five was made by flipping up the extenders; due to poor construction of the table, the plates wobbled on the seams. Table felt tacky to the touch. Water glasses were spotted, as was the silverware. Simple menu, very American (although there are fish tacos): hamburgers (kudos to offering an interesting sounding pesto burger), fried fish, French... More

Emily's has very good sea food and their chowder is really good. It has been voted either first or second the last three years running. Of all the meals we eat there, breakfast is our favorite. Great Omelets, their special of two eggs, Canadian bacon and hash brown or home fries with toast is really good and the price is... More

The food was worth going for, the wait staff were friendly, funny and well informed. The deserts were killer.

Have always had a great meal there. Service is great. They have an early bird dinner menu that is only $6.95, very relaxing atmosphere and best of all is the beach view!

I'm positive that I have commented on Emily's in times past, but we just returned from 5 days at the beach and chose to eat almost every dinner at our old "Stand-By, Emily's". Regardless of what we ordered (and we've gone through most every item between my wife and I), the food arrived in a timely fashion; at the proper... More

we disliked the prime rib buffet, but all other meals were great .The sunset dinner was very reasonable We had the skirt steak it was much better than prime rib buffet. The $2.99 Breakfast was also a good deal a lot of food for the money you will be full.

There are buffets and there are buffets. This is a for sure buffet, but truly isn't one I would stand very long in line to get into again. Most of the dishes were unimaginative and not overly hot. My theory is that they want to force people to eat in the more expensive restaurant. Sure, I've had worse, but not... More
