Previously, Emily's was one of our favorite spots but now it's slipping. The she crab soup was tasty but the "grouper" was dried out. The butt of the beef tenderloin was served to my partner; it was like shoe leather. $85 for 2 people with...More

We enjoyed several tapas as well as a special of the day. The quality of the food was very good. The mixed drink was also very good. We will eat here again.

We are locals. The tapas menu has quite a variety. Try the she-crab soup here, you will be delighted! The garlic fried beef tapas is my favorite but they are all amazing! We bring friends here from out of town.

Our party of 2 expanded to 6. Gave the restaurant short notice (1 hr.) but they were well prepared for us. Greeting was cordial, service and atmosphere acceptable, but the food was not memorable. Place seemed in need of an update, both menu and setting.

Stopped by here for dinner on a recent trip to Beaufort. The Chef Jordan did us proud with filllet steak and all the trimmings, the Server and Bar staff were super friendly and we had a lovely evening. Thanks to everyone.

Emily's is a must in Beaufort. Absolutely delicious tapas, extensive menu with both small plates and full menu, nightly specials. Great full bar and fun bartenders. My parents and I eat here at least once a week. Not a great place for kids, perfect date...More

All of the above have answered your question. No steamed that I know of either but seasonal soft shells.

Not the place I'd go for steamed crabs. White table cloths not picnic tables covered w/newspapers for opening and consuming steamed crabs.
