The food and drinks were very good. It was a relaxing atmosphere, however the restaurant is a little dark. We had a window table so it was pleasant.

This is the spot if you're into tapas and we are. Great selections and always great service. May I recommend sitting at or on the bar side for a great social atmosphere.

Emily's is our go to restaurant in Beaufort. Food and service are always top notch. Sandy is the best server ever. She always makes you feel at home and is on top of her game at all times.

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

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.
