friendly, helpful staff. The chef made a special vegetarian pasta primavera for us that was excellent. Nice ambiance, a little noisy, but that means everyone was enjoying their meal.

One of the few restaurants open on Sunday and Monday we were lucky to find such a wonderful place. The filet mignon poivre is not to be missed. One of the best steaks I have ever eaten.

I am sorry you only give this restaurant 5 stars. It deserves a much higher rating. We had dinner here lastnight. We shared filet and crabcake dinners. The filet was done to perfection and the crabcakes were mostly crab. An extremely delicious dinner; service was perfect; reservations accepted and kept us from waiting. I truly can't wait to go back.... More

We went to Emily's for an early dinner, hoping for outstanding seafood. The high point was the outstanding she-crab soup. Absolutely addictive. But the main entree disappointed. We both got a seafood combo plate of scallops & crab cake. The coating on the deep fried scallops was tasteless & served only to protect the scallops while frying, apparently. But the... More

Our favorite go to dinner venue when in Beaufort. Best beef entrees especially. Very old school/local restaurant with great servers, wine and drink prices with a great adjoining bar with Tapas fare and bar room noise to make the experience awesome. Love the ambiance of this little gem of a restaurant! Wish it was a closer than 75 mile drive.... More

We ate at Emily’s during an overnight in July based on Tripadvisor review. My wife had the crab cake dinner and I had the an order of the garlic shrimp tapa and crab cake tapa. Everything was outstanding. Service was great. A definite repeat.

We had soup, tapas and the seafood platter. All were great. Probably the best french onion soup I have had. It is easy to see why itis such a popular choice of the locals.
