The restaurant is tucked away by the river so you often have a wonderful view of the river and people going by running, walking their dogs or just strolling enjoying the day. I had the filet which was excellent. Can't wait to go back.

This place has a good atmosphere and pretty good food. There wasn't any beer on tap, which was weird. The rest of the bar was great. Outdoor seating right by the river was nice. Food was good.

First of all - this is a great location - right on the river overlooking downtown. Always a great place to celebrate with family or friends. Was in for our Easter meal. We had a large table, but that was no problem for our server. Everyone's meal was very good, and we all had a good time. For sure the... More

This place should be so much more. A great location on the river, which is lit up at night. A nice patio with a river view... And Applebee's food. And I am not criticizing Applebee's. Applebee's serves good basic food at reasonable prices. That's not what you'd expect at the East Bank Emporium. I started with the baked brie appetizer.... More

Noisy atmosphere, watery cocktails, bland food, and poor service. I have to say that I was honestly disappointed by this restaurant. We spent about $70 for an appetizer, drinks, and main courses. The tilapia oscar was dry and bland. We had to request a drink menu, which took almost 10 minutes to show up. Additionally, the waiter dropped the cutting... More

Nice, american fare, family-friendly type of place. I have been here a few times for lunch and always enjoyed the food. It is particularly nice on days when you can sit outside.

Four friends got together for lunch at the Emporium. Two folks ordered salad - one requested it without blue cheese. Of course it came out with blue cheese and was sent back. Another person ordered a reuben sandwich and stated that there was hardly any meat on it. One person ordered a burger with bacon. The burger came without bacon.... More

Lunch with girlfriends...the Emporium is perfect as they have menu offerings at both high and low price points, something for everyone. Service and presentation were perfect. Flavor and quality were excellent. The view...to die for.
