Emily's is usually closed on Sundays, but it's open on Mother's Day. What a treat again this year! The service was wonderful and the food terrific. The nicest thing is that they aren't in a hurry. Our reservation was a 1:30. We had a leisurely lunch with appetizers, salad, main course, and dessert. Lots of conversation between courses, and we... More

Restaurant has beautiful ambiance and appears to be well kept. However the owner was working as the host when we arrived and he was rude, dismissive, and basically made it clear he thought we didn't belong in his restaurant. After telling the waitress multiple times that one person in our party was gluten free and the other vegan, the vegan... More

I would love to respond to your critique but be for I do so I need to verify that your visit was on May 12 with a reservation at 6:30 for a party of 4 and it appeared that it was for a birthday for someone in your party. More

We asked around for something special for our 55th anniversary dinner and chose this fine restaurant and were not disappointed. I called for reservations and told the man it was for our anniversary. He said "Happy Anniversary " when he seated us however I do not think this information was passed along to our server. Our meal was great. Especially... More

We had our Company Christmas dinner at Emily's. This was my third time dining at Emily's. Our company is very small and there were 5 of us for dinner. The meal was fantastic and the service was very good even though the place was packed. Three of us had the Kobe Steak and all of us enjoyed it. The appetizers... More

My wife had an excellent veal, crab and asparagus dish. My duck was very good. We eat at Emily's multiple times every year, usually for special occasions.

We're just lucky to invite you and your wife in for special occasions, Lee! I'm glad the veal, crab, and asparagus dish could impress her just as much as your duck impressed you. I look forward to welcoming you both back for another special evening. All the best, Carl, Owner More

The food never disappoints and is aesthetically presented. It is a favorite Christmas Eve tradition to eat here and we always find excuses to eat here for any reason. A favorite of mine is the mushroom ravioli with asparagus. Try it!

Nice restaurant - with a fabulous patio dining area. When I was there last Saturday there was live music - and it was a wonderful evening. A varied menu. I had the Salmon and would recommend it. Our entire party enjoyed the evening.

At Emily's, you'll enjoy decadent fare in a beautiful Victorian setting that's just minutes from Morgantown and Reading. You'll love the atmosphere in our 1827 building that's full of history, and you'll be treated to outstanding food and exceptional service from our experienced team. If you stop in and dine with us for lunch, you'll find an extensive menu of entrees, sandwiches, and other delicious fare to choose from. Enjoy our expertly prepared meals in our dining room, or step outside on our deck to enjoy the warm sunshine. If you don't have time for lunch, then consider spending your evening relaxing and enjoying great food and drinks in a wonderful atmosphere by stopping in for dinner! Start with one of our tasty appetizers to share with your table, then choose your favorite dinner salad, pasta, or entree from dinner menu. Some of our most popular items include our signature Emily's Crab Cakes, Ahi Tuna filets, and our Kobe sirloin steak, but those are just some of the many delicious meals we have to offer. For those with smaller appetites, our bar menu will really hit the spot. Enjoy some of our freshly prepared food with one of our draft beers, a glass of wine, or another drink from our bar for the complete Emily's experience. We're looking forward to serving you!
