“Tapas, ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

In an era of restaurants coming and going, Emily's is an established fixture in downtown Beaufort. It is situated just one street up from bustling Bay Street, near the Beaufort Inn (another special place!). The restaurant is divided into a nice neighborhood bar section and a quieter more intimate dining section. You can choose a table in either, or sit at the bar. Emily's features an extensive tapas menu as well as a traditional dinner menu. Food and and service were excellent.

My wife and I shared tapas. The stuffed mushrooms were the best I've ever had. The lobster ravioli, french lamb chops, delicately fried scallops well all very good.

Emily's is a staple with the locals. Come find out why.

“Very good food for a very good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Emily's has a quiet ambiance and a friendly atmosphere. Very good quality food, well cooked and served by a competent, efficient staff. Choose the extensive Tapas Menu or select a full dinner, either way you can hardly go wrong. Our server Mariah deserves a special mention. She handled a table of 12 diners with great skill, outstanding efficiency, and aplomb. I would recommend this restaurant anytime.

“Beyond a Local Watering Hole”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

The service and food were outstanding. Michael, our mixologist was extremely friendly and knowledgeable... made the perfect martini. The Tapas menu was extensive and very reasonably priced; the food was superbly prepared and presented. We would recommend a stop for anyone who enjoys excellent food and service.

“Could eat here every night!!”

My absolute favorite place to eat in Beaufort! The French Onion Soup and Steak Au Poivre are to die for...we always request London as our server, she's the best!
