Everything wonderful, the space, the service, the vibe and especially the food. The place is small and busy, but for some reason there always seems to be a table available. The spinach pie is my all time favorite, but you can't go wrong with any...More

Our visit to Emily's was on a recommendation and we were not disappointed. The tabouli salad and chicken kabobs with rice were so tasty. The side salad with all the extra toppings and yummy dressing also gets raves. All the tables in this small restaurant...More

What a find! Food is delicious...chicken noodle soup, kabobs, olives, feta cheese, salads and deserts! Small and cordial. Wish we lived closer. We will find a reason to return.

Emilys is a local institution, run by same family for generations. Try the appetizer plate to share for light meal fir two, and add tabouli. Every dish is great, made from old family recipes. We've been coming here for over 35 years.
