Excellent service. Even though there were several groups dining it was not loud. Lovely patio for when the weather warms up

Great neighborhood Irish pub and restaurant that we found after moving to the area a couple years ago. When family is in from out of town we always go there because we know there is something for everyone on the menu.

There aren’t many places we feel comfortable bringing our 16 month old, and we hadn’t been here in a few years, so we decided to give it a try. We were glad to see that we could book a reservation for 6pm on a Friday with less than an hour notice.
They seated us promptly and gave us an option of either a booster seat or high chair for our little guy. The waitress was very attentive and nice. Great wine list, huge selection of draft beers and nice mix of cocktails. I really like the menu- good variety, but not too big. Nice mix of sandwiches, steaks and seafood, among others. Prices are very reasonable. The dining room was a bit loud, but not overly distracting.
Overall a great experience.

The Emerald Rose is fine dining at a reasonable price. The staff is very friendly and helpful in selections. The food is excellent. This has become our favorite restaurant in the area and we bring all of our out of town friends there. It is really two restaurants in one. On one side, there is a pub with great entertainment and a warm friendly atmosphere and on the other side a really nice quieter restaurant for more formal dinners and family gatherings.

I’ve been here many times and been very pleased, but this night was not up to usual standards. It was busy, a birthday gathering of 12 might have contributed to the extremely slow service. I ordered a side of grilled asparagus for $4.99 and there were 5 small stalks, plus 2 toothpick sized stalks. I asked if this was complete as it was a meager at best serving. She said another diner complained also, but did nothing to remedy the situation. I know they are in business to make money, but really?

Just great! Big work party of 17 that I organized. We're not from the area I've never eaten here so obviously a little bit nervous hoping everybody would have a good time and the food will be great. I could've asked for more. The host Terrie was delightful and easily added extra people that arrived. With two servers which is so nice It did not delay our meal at all again due to having a large party. Thank you so much And we will be back again

The Emerald Rose is a consistently good restaurant. The service is good, the staff is friendly, and the food is delicious. The only reason they did not get outstanding is because of their coupon/birthday policy. They changed their "free" birthday dinner to the day of only. It used to be you could go during your birthday month. They could at least let you use it the weekend before or after your birthday.

Great place to eat with friends. I recommend the prime rib on Friday and Saturday, you can't go wrong with the NY sirloin or the tips. But you have to get the mushroom risotto

I don't typically order oven roasted chicken at a restaurant because it is usually better at home. Not this time. Roast 1/2 chicken with rosemary and thyme was every bit as good as home. My complements.
