Walked in the door for a late dinner. It was painfully loud between the TV and the music and the patrons trying to talk over the raucous noise. It actually hurt my ears. .... won't be back.

We have had many very nice meals at Emil's. The Friday fish fry is very good. Lovely soups and salads. Good burgers. The atmosphere can be a bit loud (it is a sports bar) however, they are very family friendly. They have been very accommodating in terms of preparing salads to my personal liking. A great place to go to watch sporting events, enjoy a drink and have some good bar food!

Emils has been a staple in lake county for years. It does pretty good pizza and the rest of the faire is solid, tasty offering. If you're in the mood for quality comfort food go here.

Emil's is a decent all-round bar and restaurant with a large bar area as well as a dining room. TVs in all areas and the bar is noisier than the dining room as a rule.

Done mostly take out or delivery usually never a mistake with orders though sometimes the young employee's taking the order over the phone sometimes get confused, so double check at the end of ordering that they have it correct. Good burgers and sandwiches, the pizzas are pretty good feel that they are a bit over priced. Have broasted chicken and chicken wings suggest to order the wings plain with sauce on the side then the wings stay crispy and can dip the in choice of sauce. Was there at a larger afternoon gathering it was busy, loud, and a bit hectic, waitresses got overwhelmed and confused but over all what can you expect. Suggest a place to go hang out with some late night friends.
