Had lunch with family. Had soup (very rich beef veg.) and chicken salad. Food is fresh and "urban" for this rural area. Took a quart of tomato soup home. Would try again for dinner.

Went here for a business meeting with a group of 8. We were also heading to Jack Daniel's Distillery tour. This older house which was converted into a quaint eatery was a pleasant surprise in this small town. The food was outstanding and I can recommend stopping here when you're passing by or live here.

Excellent food. The chef is actually from France and has brought his expertise to the area. Quaint character and wonderful food. If you are in the area, give it a try. If you live in the area and haven't eaten here - you definitely should!

I spent an evening here while on a business trip with colleagues. They took reservations and accommodated a rather large group. Excellent food. I didn't hear one person who was disappointed by the experience. The entire restaurant is very nice, and has lots of little rooms throughout where they seat guests. As our reservation was late in the evening and... More

My wife read reviews of Emil's and declared that we just had to go there. We were not disappointed! The menu and the food were great (fantastic roasted tomato soup!), the service phenomenal, and the repurposed house is a gorgeous setting. We'll have to come back to Tullahoma sometime just for this!
