I took my father here the night before Fathers Day. We had portobello mushrooms between us for starters. My father had a T-bone and I had a Fillet steak. We had homemade chips with them and two types of pepper sauce. The steaks were cooked to perfection as were the chips. I'm not a big eater and left half my... More

Steak, mushrooms and onions in a bun with chips (Basket meal), add onion rings and sweet potatoe chips, washed down with a glass or two of Tiger beer, what a great way to start the evening off and all for a very reasonable price. Service is quick, efficient and attentive, well worth a visit.

We had our best friends coming to stay this weekend and we wanted to take them out for a meal. We went on to the Internet and found Emily's. This was our first time at this restaurant and will become a real favourite! It looks very unassuming from the outside, the decor is basic but the food is amazing and... More

We received excellent personal service from start to finish by all the staff they were all great and attentive. Our starters all arrived together and then all our mains arrived together, the food...

Went last night with a group of 6 to celebrate a birthday. I was surprised at how small the place is and we did feel a little cramped. It's always a bit awkward when your sat so close to other people who are not in your party. Unfortunately we were told we could not have scallops as they have to... More

Ok been here many times in the past but not so much recently the big plus for Emily's is the food. It really is second to none for steaks, onion rings, chips and sauces. I've never had the chicken or fish dishes but I'm told they are superb. The down sides are the drinks. The wine is truly awful and... More

We arrived a little early but we're glad we waited. There was a group of 6 of us, most of us had something different cooked to different degrees of rareness. They were all cooked to perfection and arrived in good time. I shall be bringing the wife to Derby in 3 months, Emily's is now on the must visit list.

The OH decided he wanted to go for a steak for his birthday, so I obliged and started the hunt for a Steakhouse. I'd never heard of Emily's before, but the reviews looked promising, so we picked to go here & due to it being a week night & a last minute decision, chanced turning up without booking in advance....

The food is always excellent, and the service is never less than attentive and efficient. The salt and chilli ribs are my favourite starter I've had in any restaurant, anywhere!

Small but cosy and friendly Surf and Turf restaurant, but the serious food is the steaks! Just about the best, beautifully cooked with great hand made chips (with sweet potato fries included for added yum). Add mushrooms with garlic or blue cheese and a tower of crisp fried onion rings and its the business. Not a cheap night out but... More
