This is a great neighborhood spot Great Beer and Great Food
Poor service was the overall factor here. We were seated in the middle of the dining room and our server came over to us a total of 2 times to take our drink order and dinner order. Never checked on us otherwise. I kept having to flag down other staff to get anything. Keep in mind, she was walking around our table to others the entire time but never turned our direction. We usually have a decent experience the other times we have visited. The wing trio app was the best part of the meal. Prices are rather high for the quality they serve though. The $15 reuben was just subpar meat with soggy bread. Honestly, it is starting to feel more like a very expensive Applebees.
Great food, service, and atmosphere! Always a good time. Thank you!
Everything was great except what was being shown on the television as we dined!
I’ve never been here before but some people in my dinner party had and raves about it. I got the rigatoni mozarella and I added chicken. It was AMAZING! So flavorful, the portion was nice and big so I had plenty to take home and have for lunch the next day. We also got spinach and artichoke dip as an appetizer. It was delicious! And the pitas were so amazing even on their own! You can tell the chef takes great pride in their work, everything came out and looked delicious and fancy. We sat by the fireplace and it was warm and cozy. I would definitely come back here again!
In spite of it not being very busy early on, we felt that our server could have been more attentive. Several times I had to go looking for someone to take care of us. She was very personable and mostly efficient, but I got the impression she was doing double duty in the kitchen, which caused some neglect in the dining area.
The special of the day - scallops in risotto was outstanding! The portion of risotto was large, altho there were only 4 small scallops which was a little disappointing.
Masks were present on servers, altho social distancing and masking was not actively practiced in the bar area, nor did I notice anyone requested to be more compliant.
We will come back because it's a convenient half-way point for my son and I to meet, but if the safety guidelines aren't followed better, we won't be back a third time until after the pandemic resolves.
I would recommend Emmett's, because of all it's positives. CoVid-wise, it's up to each individual to assess their own comfort with the level of safety practiced by the business.
Good food. Good brews
With current conditions spacing was very good. The food and service was great.
This place is like home, great food, great people, and delicious beer!
Nice outdoor seating and service provided over the weekend
This review is perhaps 10 years overdue. I was introduced to Emmett's when I first moved to West Dundee in 2008, and it has been my mainstay for over a decade. The friendly atmosphere, ability to enjoy as upscale dinner or simply for a beer and appetizers, and the tasty beverages (I'm looking at you Hefeweizen and Imperial Blueberry Cow Tipper!) defined Emmett's as my go-to in town.
Introduced my (now) wife to Emmett's several years ago and quickly became our date night haven - helps we are walking distance after having a few! ;) Finally, in this COVID-19 environment we all find ourselves this year - Emmett's recent reopening has us feeling safe and confident given all safety precautions in place.
