What a wonderful memory. We lived in the area and moved away. We visited Emily's tonight and enjoyed an amazing dinner. Crab cakes grilled, salmon glazed to perfection and mushroom ravioli. I miss you and so glad we came by.

We enjoyed great acoustic music outdoor deck, good drinks and food. My son's favorite is the Cajun pasta and it didn't disappoint. Coconut shrimp as an appetizer was also a hit.

Took my husband here for a birthday dinner. Great service, chatted with the owner. Excellent cocktails, soup, entrees and a sparkler on the dessert to celebrate!

Interesting place in both good and bad ways. It's a very old, former hotel and it's kind of cool in the Beatlejuice kind of way. The food was actually pretty good (burger and salmon dish) and service was friendly, but generally poor and disjointed. For...More

Description
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!
