We had a delicious dinner here last night. Great service by Melissa. I had a house salad with the honey mustard vinaigrette that was wonderful. The salmon special was cooked perfectly and had nice sides of asparagus and rice pilaf. My husband had the garlic shrimp which was tasty and a crab cake that was amazing. We love the choices...

We stopped in Beaufort for a few days stay at the Downtown Marina. The first night there we wandered into Emily's and had a wonderful dinner of shrimp and grits, and fried triggerfish. Our waitress, Jennifer, was outstanding and answered all of our questions about the area. We are looking forward to our next trip to Beaufort and will make... More

The food is amazing! The service is great, very friendly staff. I loved the She Crab soup (cream of crab back home in Baltimore). Being from Baltimore, this soup did not disappoint!!!! Sweet Thai shrimp were amazing, I could've drank a cup of the sauce it is cooked in! Good drink specials, had a wonderful time. This is definitely my... More

We were walking around and saw they had tapas. We really enjoyed the food. The she crab soup was awesome. We would definitely go again. Our waitress was very helpful.

Stopped in Beaufort traveling. Quaint town with plenty of shops and restaurants. Stopped into Luther's for a beer with a nice shared park along the river. Used TripAdvisor to figure out where we might eat. Talked to the bartenders there and ended up at Emily's. Emily's has many tapas including flavors used in the entrees. We had teriyaki beef tips...

Great location, so so food. My husband's Wiener schnitzel was bland, and my son couldn't eat his pasta with lemon sauce, a little too much lemon. I ordered the flounder and it was good, just came after everyone was already done eating.

I have never been more disappointed in the food or service. As a local of Beaufort for over 10 years Emily's has always my favorite until my last experience last night 4/27/2017. The food was amazing until i took a bite and pulled a long strand of hair out of my mouth. Disgusted after this and upset, I politely informed... More

The peppercorn steak was terrific and blackened red snapper was fresh and outstanding! But they seemed a little out of step - we had several friendly chats the waitress leading up to our reservation time - but she seated us with another waiter in a nearly empty restaurant. The only homemade dessert was Key Lime pie, but they ran out... More

Daily Chef Specials! Tapas - shrimp specialty also wild game She-Crab Soup! We came in, made a dinner off of 3 Tapas (all shrimp based) and 2 cups of their she-crab soup! They have so many scrumptious sounding tapas that we want to try - we'll definitely be back!!!! I've also *heard* that locals come in for their amazing bar!

We gave Emily's a break for quite a while, but returned at the insistence of Scotty, who we used to visit at another Beaufort establishment. As always, we sat at the bar, and Ed took wonderful care of us. I had my favorite dishes that I had not had in years: The pork tenderloin, potato skins, and Andouille sausage tapas.... More
