“Wonderful Tapas”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Mariah was our waitress and she did an excellent job serving us. She has a sweet reminder of her father on her arm and it was so sweet that she shared her story with us. This was a cute little restaurant with wonderful Tapas. I had the crab cake and it was all crab not a bunch of fillers and my husband had the garlic beef steak. The she-crab soup was very good but I loved the onion soup. Give it a try when in town.

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

We were in Beaufort for two nights in August and ate at Emily's one night. (Wish we had eaten there both nights.) The restaurant was not crowded. We seated and served quickly. Very nice ambiance. They have bar area which has TV (seperate from the dining area) and I understand is crowded for sporting events. I had the shrimp and grits which I like almost anywhere, but at emily's they were spectacular. The shrimp were huge, the grits were creamy and a bit spicy and the combination of the flavors was really really delish! My husband had the porterhouse steak and he said it was done to perfection. He is also a big fan of this restaurant. The others in our group ordered the fried seafood platter which look great. They loved theirs also. This place is a winner!

“A Great Dinner”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We decided to eat at Emily's for my friends birthday. We had a wonderful time! I had the Shrimp Cicatta over linguine which was "out of this world" The flavors were superb! My birthday friend had Chicken Cordon Blue (not sure of spelling) with these wonderful potatoes. The chicken was very tender. My other friend had a Smoked Salmon Tapas and salad. My friend said it was the best she's ever had. Mariah, our server, was at our table at the right time..always. We never had to look for her! She knew the menu, she knew the answers to our questions about the food, and she was nice! The birthday friend got a huge piece of chocolate cake! If you go to emily's you have to try the chocolate cake! We met Chef Mike and got to ask him about some of the dishes we had. What a nice guy! We will definitely go back to Emily's.
