Our newest Beaufort hotspot- we made a reservation here 24 hours in advance online and got a call confirming that within hours, which was nice. Seating was easy and the restaurant itself was small, but the food was incredible and definitely somewhere we will be back to the next time we come into town! My husband and I chose to... More

Mediocre, loud, rundown. Needs paint. Bathroom needed attention. Would not go back again. Eat at Saltus instead.

Our dinner was a mixed bag. We went to Emily's because we wanted Weiner Schnitzel. We started with the She Crab soup, which was excellent. But we were disappointed with the Weiner Schnitzel. It was "soggy". And not really pounded thin enough. We should have gone the Tapas route!! Our service by Sandy was great.

Staff at Emily's was pleasant and very attentive. The dishes my wife and I choose were prepared very basically and lacked full flavor. The decor could use some upgrading as it is more like a local pub than a full scale restaurant. This is not a restaurant we would frequent but maybe we just selected the wrong entrees. The restaurant... More

We went on a night when they were short-staffed so we're told it might be a little slower. The service was superb and we recommend you ask for Sandy! The food was delicious!

Most of the great restaurants in Beaufort are either on the water or at least visible from the main drag, Bay Street. Emily's location, on a street parallel and one block up from Bay, makes it less known by tourists and even locals. Case in point, our friends who have lived in the Beaufort for 4 years, had only an... More

I just returned to the Upstate from a fishing trip to Beaufort with my college student son. The tapas were very good, with a lot of variety offered. The only drawback is the quantity for a young man. The amount of food is perfect, however, for those of us who don't need as much caloric intake.

Perhaps it was just too busy the night we went but after a local's recommendation to try this place we were disappointed. We waited at least 5 min after being seated for menus, had to ask for the rolls that appeared quickly on everyone else's table. The the salad came at the same as the entree. Food quality was ok,...

Emily's is a local favorite. A bit upscale on prices yet a casual atmosphere. My wife had the teriyaki steak that was fabulous. Located just off of Bay St. it is easy to find. I do suggest reservations as it is very popular. We did not have reservations and ate at the bar rather then wait an hour for a... More

The food was good. Unfortunately there were several of their specials that they ran out of but what we did get was good. It was a little loud but that was due to college football games on TV (bar area). University of South Carolina fans were enjoying a good win for their team.
