This restaurant has a huge tapas list, great entrees and the best Creme Brûlée in Beaufort. Seafood is fresh and perfectly prepared. Steaks and chops very tender and to requested temperature. Service friendly (ask for Moriah!). Fairly priced wines. Active bar with big TVs separate from main dining room great for solo dining. Been coming here for 20 years!

Been here several times on business. Never been diappointed. Ed, behind the bar, is the biggest asset of the place. (the other staff members are great, too, I just don't remember their names)
Never had a bad drink; never had a bad dish. Told him what my taste preferences were and he completely hit it out of the park with his suggestions. Seriously, if you are in BFT, you HAVE to go to Emily's.
These folks are local...they care and it shows in the quality of service, food and prepared cocktails. Sat at the bar 11/20, these folks were super attentive, and fun to talk to.
Tapas were hot, ready and to die for. I had garlic shrimp and wild boar sausage as apps/tapas. My buddy had the fried shimp and bacon wrapped scallops. Then, I was offered the motzerella/tomato salad as an upgrade to my meal...great choice. The group I was with raved about the she crab soup...said it was the best they ever had.
This is a "can't go wrong" place if you are entertaining clients or just want a slow, deliberate "decompression session" for yourself.

I had the Pate Maison for appetizer, very well done. The filet of beef was well prepared. My father-in-law, a very picky eater had the Seafood combo platter and said it HAD to be one of the top five meals he's ever had. You don't know him, but that means A LOT. Attentive service but not overbearing. A MUST dine at experience. A lot to choose from.

Their Tapa's menu is unbelievably extensive, which makes it hard to choose, but we ALWAYS get the French Onion Soup. It has a fantastic broth and is topped with lots of Swiss cheese. Don't settle for just a cup, you have to have a bowl. Escargot, lamb chops, garlic beef and lobster ravioli are also among our favorites. The staff is very friendly and always anxious to please.
