            Great place for a date night. The cocktails were on point. The specials and regular menu items are abundant. Try the raspberry tiramisu for dessert enough for three.

            Downtown West Dundee by the river is very charming. Emmitt’s Brewery is a distinct part of what makes this area so interesting and inviting. We’re traveling for a sports tournament and would definitely go back!

            Emmett's is amazing!!! Been there a hundred times and everytime is a great time. Can't get enough of their Cheddar Ale soup! You won't find a better place to get phenomenal food. Everything from appetizers to steaks, it's all prepared to perfection. I would highly recommend them to everyone! They offer up a lot of great beers as well.

            Great casual restaurant. Good and simple menu. Good beer selection. The service was good, the only downside was the price. The restaurant has some good food, but wasn't worth the price we paid. Our bill came to over $200 for 4 people with minimal drinks.

            The food was okay. The server was brand new, we were his first table and he did very well. However, I can't say the same for the bar. They didn't have the Godiva Chocolate Liqueur to make a Chocolate Martini but charged me $13.50 for the drink - ridiculous price even if they had the right Liqueur but totally out of line for a poor substitute.

            Food was good, asked about cross contamination as I have celiac. Waitress assured me they would take every precaution however my food tested + for Gluten with my Nima sensor. I avoided the wild rice and felt fine so my assumption it may have been the rice itself and less so the kitchen surfaces.

            Food was mediocre and not worth the cost spent on 2 steaks that could have been cooked at home with way more flavor. It was Mother’s Day and not busy at all. Steady. But not to a point the kitchen couldn’t be on point. The carrot cake was on special. A favorite of mine. It tasted like a brown butter spice cake rather than a carrot cake. Super disappointed. I didn’t want to cook, nor did my wife. But we regretted going out after the dinner we had. We didn’t talk to a manager because it wouldn’t fix the food we ate. Salt and pepper is key to any steak. I shouldn’t have to tell a manger to teach that to their chef

            We decided to try this place for Mother's Day as we were not looking for an expensive brunch. Additionally, we had two toddlers in tow and did not want to go anywhere too fancy. Emmett's worked out perfectly for us. The atmosphere was perfect and the food was delicious. Our server was very attentive and took care of all of our needs. I would highly recommend!

            There for Mother's Day brunch and sat upstairs. They were mostly large tables upstairs so the noise was little louder than normal. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

            Excellent food, very no-frills menu but everything was delicious, the place was very clean, and the pear martini was awesome.
