This is one of the best dining spots you will find. Great atmosphere, wine and food are excellent. Always have nice specials to choose from. You could put this restaurant anywhere in the US and it would thrive, lucky to have such a fantastic place to go in western Nebraska.

Great find for Scottsbluff business travelers! I only gave it a 4 star because I didn't think the food was unbelievable- however, best option for this area. They were extremely accommodating for my dietary restrictions and the waiter was very attentive. Definitely a good place to dine!

Lunch was spectacular. Husband had curry chicken bowl, a house specialty. I had mixed green with grapes & fennel and a house made grape vinaigrette. Spectacular. House Chardonnay was exceptional. Dogs ok on the patio. RV parking found on the side street. Wonderful atmosphere, & waitress was great. Highly recommend!

I've been in town for a couple weeks now for work, and this is easily the best food I've eaten here so far. The menu is familiar yet experimentally adventurous....very creative. I had fried brussel sprouts to start the meal. They were good, albeit extremely salty. I had a sausage gnocchi as an entrée. It was good, not great. The... More

Our family of 5 chose to have dinner here as a last supper of my visit to Scottsbluff knowing the Emporium had a good reputation for excellent food. At first when we looked at the menu, which changes often, we wondered what, if anything, appealed. Upon a closer look we each found something that turned out delicious and beautifully presented....

As one of Nebraska's best restaurants, food is always Emporium's strong suit. The service is sometimes less stellar. This being said, our last visit was excellent. Courtney did a great job and the chicken was super!

This place was recommended by the B&B we stayed at. This is truly a gem of a place. The Brussel sprout appetizer is probably the best appetizer I have ever had. A great wine and beer list to compliment your meal. Not a large menu, but good variety. I had the bacon wrapped veal special, my wife the ribeye steak.... More

Unusual facility with outside patio seating and small......seats maybe 50 - 60 people ..... interior. Decorations are not expensive but nicely done. Pretty nice wine list, with availability of ordering by the glass or bottle. Not a large menu but quiet varied. My wife enjoyed a Greek Salad and I had a wonderful lamb dish. If it is offered on...

This place was recommended to us by the owners of the B&B we were staying in. What a wonderful surprise. We went on a Saturday night around 7pm. We were able to get seated immediately. It was warm outside, so we ate inside, although the patio looked nice. We were dressed super casual (we didn't pack fancy clothes on this... More

What a phenomenal experience! We arrived 20 minutes before dinner service began (5pm) and were happily seated with drinks and the menu to review. The Napa savignon blanc was yummy at $25 a bottle. The Brussels sprouts appetizer with shaved Parmesan was outstanding. Wondered if we could get away with licking the bowl but other patrons were arriving. The special... More
