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.

Thank Lee B
Carl D, Owner at Emily's, responded to this review

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

It was thanksgiving dinner. The turkey dinner did not have cranberry sauce, I found that a bit odd and no pumpkin pie! I double checked, pumpkin pie was not on the holiday menu! After we ordered dessert, we overheard the next table was offered pumpkin pie! Great food, just those quirks. On another note, I noticed 2 Exit lights were... More

While I'm glad that you enjoyed our food, I'm sorry if our menu wasn't quite what you were expecting. Pumpkin pie wasn't listed, but we did have some on Thanksgiving, and our team should've offered it to you -- I apologize if that wasn't the case. As for the exit lights, our team is committed to making that our restaurant... 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.

Emily's was open on Mother's Day and was able to accommodate our family party of 9. We had a number of different dishes and everyone raved about the food. The service was excellent.

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!
