Place is dramatically in need of a renovation or at least a gallon or two of paint on the chipped nasty walls. The food lacked seasoning. Like literally I think the chef was out of salt that day. Had heard good things about the place...More

We arrived in Beaufort around 8 on a Sunday night in December. Our guest house recommended Emily’s and we were shocked to find such a friendly and welcoming spot open. Really creative and diverse menu - reasonably priced. We had tapas at the bar- baked...More

Lovely restaurant in Beaufort, a charming city with extraordinary architecture. Emily's is a gem. Our server was lovely and very informative, and the meals were amazing. As we are passing through to return to Florida, we shall definitely reserve a table.

We were visiting Beaufort and had dinner at Emily's. I ordered the steak au poivre, and it was delicious--always one of my favourites. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. We will be sure to make reservations again at Emily's.

We were fortunate to have a "Local" tell us about Emily's. They take reservations but since we were eating early, we had no problem being seated as walk-ins when they opened. It's a fairly small and quiet venue with an adjoining bar area. The food...More

Stopped in for dinner on a Friday night, reservations needed for the restaurant side, but good sized bar less full. Most couples seemed to order 4 tapas plates- lots for a medium meal for 2. Cooking was generally very good, truffle fries are a must!...More

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