Though everyone at my table enjoyed their lunches, as a vegan, the menu was extremely limited. The signature pretzels and veggie burger were not vegan, so I ended up with just a plain salad with no topping available. I would have appreciated some effort to accommodate this popular plant-friendly eating preference.

I used to love to dine at Emma’s. The half roasted chicken used to be my favorite. I asked the server for double vegetables instead of the whipped potatoes, because I am allergic to dairy. When my food arrived, they gave me whipped potatoes. I didn’t bother mentioning it to the server because I was hungry.
I ordered the Tito‘s Moscow mule drink special, only to find out later On that the bartender was using absolut vodka instead of Tito‘s. Tito’s is gluten free. I have a gluten allergy that’s why I ordered the Tito’s.

needless to say my stomach was very upset the next day. Sadly I will not be returning to Emmas.

Not the fanciest, not the most trendy, not the most elegant place to eat. But if you want a solid performer, one that delivers great taste, great service, in comfort at a great price...look no further.

Awesome place for much better than expected food. Most pub food is predictable and usually served up by staff that value volume over quality. The service and ambiance were excellent. The Sesame Crusted Salmon was cooked perfectly and very tasty. We will definitely come back!

Very crowded and noisy on a Saturday night with nothing to absorb sound. Given just how busy the restaurant was, the waiter was VERY attentive and friendly. Excellent chicken pot pie chosen by our friend, delicious salmon BLT eaten by me (with half taken home). And the very best ice cream brought in from Longford's. Big portions, but high prices for all. Many higher end restaurants get significantly less $$$ for a cappuccino, for instance. Overall, a good time!

Not representative of prior experiences, which have been very good. Restaurant was extremely busy. Only two servers covering the dining room. They did a great job but were overwhelmed. Drinks were very slow. Two orders of soup were warm (not hot). Nightly special flatbread crust wasn’t completely cooked and was very greasy.

Great food, but pricy. I find it hard to imagine a burger is worth $22... Especially when the only add-ons were bacon and cheese!

I had the short ribs, which were tasty, but the mashed potatoes were tasteless and dry. We also were served coffee that tasted bitter and burnt. The waitress took the coffee off of the bill. We are willing to try again some time.

We haven't been to Emma's in a year or so, and it was time to return.
I ordered a special burger (Pat LaFreda) with bacon. onion rings, pulled pork and mac and cheese. I was in the mood for meat. This burger was juicy and tasty. The toppings became side dishes there was so much. The onion rings were steak house crisp, and not greasy. My wife had the chicken tacos (in a hard shell). Please offer them soft.

We'll return sooner rather than later.

An old standard, this gastro pup is always a great go-to spot for meeting friends, bringing the kids, or just getting a last minute reservation. Service is attentive and friendly, and the food is better than you would expect coming from a dressed up pup.

Been there many times and I've never been disappointed.

c ome here often,. Introduced close friends to Emma's. They loved it and vowed to return. We ordered small plates, chicken lollipops, Cheese encrusted artichoke hearts, and filet mignon sliders, which unfortunately, were tough. Desserts were excellent. Ample portions.
