I finally went to the emory after hearing about it for a while. I had a chicken sandwich which was good, but the sweet potato fries were excellent. The rest of my party had been there before and all had burgers which they said were very good. It's a bar atmosphere but not real loud so conversation was easy. Service... More

Seemed like a great local bar The bartender, Ryan, really knew his stuff. I had the chance to sample a limited edition bourbon, pre release, and enljoy a well crafted cocktail

Nice place and very convenient. Easy parking and very safe. The food is great. We've been there for breakfast and lunch. The burgers are amazing. The Sunday morning brunch has a bloody mary bar with all of the fixings. Come to Ferndale and eat.

As a vegetarian, I have eaten many a grilled cheese as one of the few non-meat options on the menu. And often restaurants phone it in - soggy bread, too much cheese, too little, etc. But this was the best grilled cheese I've had in a long time. Yummy bread, and the perfect amount of cheese, tomato and pesto to... More

Met friends for happy hour and dinner. Sat outside as it was a great spot to people watch. $5 Old Fashions and a good beer menu. We had the burger sliders and the turkey pastrami (one of the best ever). Friendly and efficient wait staff . Nice inside bar. Good prices.

After living in LA for four years, I feel this place could hold its own there, in terms of food & service quality, as well as decor. I don't want the waits or prices to shoot up, but this place deserves recognition. This is the second time I've been here, and the food was excellent both times, especially for the... More

The Emory has a great atmosphere on the inside. Dark, with beautiful wood bar and nice wrap around large booths for larger groups. They have a pool table as well, and a jukebox to choose your favorite tunes. The restaurant also offers outside seating on Woodward Ave in the summer, great to dine while the sun goes down. The restaurant... More
