Locals hang here, especially at the bar. Steak auPoivre was good as well as the rack of lamb. Cooked to perfection on both entrees. Oysters Rockefeller and bacon wrapped shrimp were good and plenty of both. My only comment would be that it is on the pricey side and with that should come an up-to-date establishment. Our server, Sandra, was... More

This restaurant Emily's should be right on the waterfront so more people are able to enjoy the wonderful food and great service this restaurant provides. If my wife and I ever came back to Beaufort Sc we would love to come and dine with this great restaurant again. Ryan was really friendly, polite, accommodating and provided fantastic service while making... More

Went there for our Anniversary. Food was terrific. Great selection of Tapas. Best She Crab Chowder I've ever had. Wish I had gotten the bowl rather than the cup. Wait staff was a little slow but the food was hot so it wasn't the kitchens fault. If you want to have conversation during dinner make a reservation early for the... More

Monday's are always difficult to find open. Not so with Emily's. We had seafood and loved it. The pasta special was shrimp carbonara and it was outstanding. Our server, Brian, was very attentive and forthright. Great guy. Try the topas. Try a bottle of wine if more that 3 people are drinking wine. One of our friends is gluten intolerance... More

Locals meet here for Happy Hour and fabulous selection of tapas. Drinks are very reasonably priced as are their tapas. The fried artichoke hearts served with a crab dipping sauce are plentiful and delicious! A must have! Best to walk here as the parking is very scarce. No need to dress up ~ come as you are!

The restaurant is across the corner from the Beaufort Inn. We'd been at the beach all day and wanted good food, but not all the hassle of dressing up. You can either order dinner or a series of tapas plates, which are pretty good size. I went for the tapas as i wanted to try a couple of things. My... More

Emily's has the biggest selection of tapas dishes that I've ever encountered. I'm sure they were all wonderful, but we could only manage four. They were delicious and we can't wait to return to Beaufort to try others.

Sat at the bar with a few newly met friends. Had a tournodo with fried oysters, awesome. Another had the fried green tomatoes, which was also a hit. Drinks are priced right with a generous pour. We really like this place!
