This was our second time here. I am allergic to wheat and thus, gluten free. There are a number of great options here for the GF, primarily in the small plates portion of the menu. All that I have tried are very good. This visit...More

I had checked reviews for Beaufort, SC restaurants and come up with half a dozen that sounded good, three with more extensive menus. After arriving in Beaufort, we settled on Emily's and got reservations (which we didn't need on a Tues. night). Excellent service, excellent...More

We went for an early dinner and felt we'd hit it out of the park! This is a cloth tablecloth place with atmosphere and service to match, yet not snooty. Friendly and helpful. The staff encountered were extremely friendly, very efficient yet not intrusive. There...More

Kudos to Emilys! We have experienced this place many times and while they have the best steak in town tonight was drinks and apps which were great, Bailey took great care of us and we left happy and ready to return. Thanks.

We enjoyed several tapas as well as a special of the day. The quality of the food was very good. The mixed drink was also very good. We will eat here again.

We are locals. The tapas menu has quite a variety. Try the she-crab soup here, you will be delighted! The garlic fried beef tapas is my favorite but they are all amazing! We bring friends here from out of town.

Our party of 2 expanded to 6. Gave the restaurant short notice (1 hr.) but they were well prepared for us. Greeting was cordial, service and atmosphere acceptable, but the food was not memorable. Place seemed in need of an update, both menu and setting.

All of the above have answered your question. No steamed that I know of either but seasonal soft shells.

Not the place I'd go for steamed crabs. White table cloths not picnic tables covered w/newspapers for opening and consuming steamed crabs.
