    No surprises here...something for everyone to enjoy, served by a friendly, professional staff at a price that makes paying the bill the cherry on the Sundae. Not just this time, all the time.

  • Nice place for a casual date

    Kind of an upscale pub feeling here. The food was pretty good and the drink selection seemed great. Good beers on tap. Overall, a really nice place for a casual meal on a Friday night or for a casual date. Only thing is that it is a bit noisy, but that can't really be helped as it isn't a big place. Also, it was packed on Friday Night!!! So make a reservation.

    I have been here many times for dinner, but this was the first time I had eaten lunch here. Warm pretzel rolls with mustard to start are always welcome. I ended up with a salmon burger, which was huge--I'm not sure how anyone gets the whole thing in his/her mouth--and very tasty. I deconstructed it and was able to eat about 3/4 of it with about 1/4 of the bread. Fries were a little too good!! My friend had a wrap and really enjoyed it. In past dinners, the entrees were delicious. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, from pub far to fish dishes.

    Never been disappointed at Emma's, food is always great, wait staff is always very attentive, and make sure you save room for the krispy cream bread pudding with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce!!! Decor is centered around dogs with tasteful artwork and photos, along with other touches around the restaurant. FYI the name of the restaurant "Emma" is named after a faithful companion. Reservations are recommended for weekend nights which can be busy. Bar is always busy also, with lots of tv's showing the games that day

    Delicious food made with fresh ingredients. Diverse menu has something for everyone. My family and I come to Emma's about once a week now for almost four years since we moved into the neighborhood. Owners and staff are like family. Feels like I am dining at home but with better food and service!

    Emma's Ale house is an outstanding restaurant that never disappoints. Great service, great staff and a menu that has something for everyone. I have never been there and not seen customers smiling, relaxed and enjoying the experience. Casey and his crew have given White Plains a classic! Thank you!

    It was noisy. Full of screaming kids. And we were sat in the very back of the restaurants in what seemed like an added on part of the restaurant. The waiter was there too much when you didn't want him and not enough when you did. Our drinks for 4 came out at 3 different times. The only app/salad was a caesar, and it was just ok too. No entree particularly shined, but the portions were good. I love the pretzels that come out as bread, although very filling. I've been here before with a better experience. Don't know why it wasn't better this time. I'm disappointed.

    Eat here often, This experience, not so hot. Wife ordered the special soup. Not at all to her likeing. Color of soup, a dark green was a put off to start with. Only green vegetables used, little liquid. Sent it back. Was not charged for soup. Have had better here. But unfortunayely never with their soups.

    Been to Emma's many times. Never disappoints. Ordered French-Onion soup, tasty broth, not overly salted., Short-Rib Quesadilla, delish. The service is always pleasant and accommodating. They always start you off with big fat soft pretzels and coarse mustard.The decor is very sweet especially for dog-lovers, as the aforementioned Emma is a much beloved pooch.

    Super kid friendly and adorable heart shapes pretzels on v-day. Short ribs were a bit dry and overcooked for me but my husband liked them. Shepeards pie was good as was the gluten free ravioli. Dessert took too long but that was likely due to the holiday. Delicious cinnamon ice cream and a great selection of beer.
