Mostly known for their EXTENSIVE tapas menu, but we ordered regular meals. The shrimp and lobster pasta dish did not dissapoint - big chunks of lobster and shrimp cooked just right.

Excellent service, atmosphere, food and cocktails. I along with a group of girls took our friend to Emily's to celebrate her birthday. We were given an excellent table by the window looking out on to the sights of historic Beaufort, SC. The waitress was wonderful and suggested a delicious affordable bottle of wine. The bartender was excellent and came over... More

I was quite anxious to try this restaurant and maybe that's why it was a little disappointing. The ambiance was good, all the staff were friendly and attentive, it was my steak that was a little chewy. The other diners meal was a filet and was perfect. I would suggest a special or do tell if you feel your meal... More

We made a reservation here based on average reviews and recommendations. Others may have done well, but we did not. We both had a cup of she-crab soup, not bad, but that ended the good stuff. The catch of the day was Red Snapper and we both ordered it. It was burned and badly dried out. The rice was also... More

Mediocre food and service. We mentioned to our server that each of our oysters had bits of shells in them, he said he would check with the kitchen. He came back with a delicate apology and said they were rinsed. That was it. We were four people and each ordered something different none of us found our food anything special.... More

We stopped at this restaurant quite late in the evening after a long day of driving. It was a cosy, local restaurant recommended by our hotel. It was located next to a bar area which connected to the restaurant via doorways. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. The food was good, solid American fare. My onion soup was very good... More

Amazing restaurant with dozens of crazy good tapas (small plates). One of our two favorite restaurants in Beaufort, SC. Their award winning shrimp and grits (available in tapas portion of you ask for it) is better than any we have had in any state! The tapas portion of 2 lamb chops is amazing and each side seared to perfection, which... More

Emily 's offers both tapas and full dinners. The tapas menu from which we ordered covers two full pages, so there is literally something for everyone. We shared four items (fried oysters, sweet Thai shrimps, beef tips teriyaki, bacon wrapped scallops) and had plenty to eat. Service was excellent.

We decided to have a drink and small plates. The lamp chops and crab stuffed shrimp were delicious. No happy hour, which was disappointing but they don't open until 4

Our newest Beaufort hotspot- we made a reservation here 24 hours in advance online and got a call confirming that within hours, which was nice. Seating was easy and the restaurant itself was small, but the food was incredible and definitely somewhere we will be back to the next time we come into town! My husband and I chose to... More
