Shannon took such good care of us. We felt like family. We had a variety of tapas like the soft shell crab and stuffed mushrooms. Loved the teriyaki beef tips and the cheesecake!!! Yum! We will definitely be back!

We always enjoy our dinners at Emily's. Their steaks are prepared just right and taste great. Nice tapas menu with many selections. Everyone is friendly and the price is right.
