The food never disappoints and is aesthetically presented. It is a favorite Christmas Eve tradition to eat here and we always find excuses to eat here for any reason. A favorite of mine is the mushroom ravioli with asparagus. Try it!More

At Emily's, you'll enjoy decadent fare in a beautiful Victorian setting that's just minutes from Morgantown and Reading. You'll love the atmosphere in our 1827 building that's full of history, and you'll be treated to outstanding food and exceptional service from our experienced team. If you stop in and dine with us for lunch, you'll find an extensive menu of entrees, sandwiches, and other delicious fare to choose from. Enjoy our expertly prepared meals in our dining room, or step outside on our deck to enjoy the warm sunshine. If you don't have time for lunch, then consider spending your evening relaxing and enjoying great food and drinks in a wonderful atmosphere by stopping in for dinner! Start with one of our tasty appetizers to share with your table, then choose your favorite dinner salad, pasta, or entree from dinner menu. Some of our most popular items include our signature Emily's Crab Cakes, Ahi Tuna filets, and our Kobe sirloin steak, but those are just some of the many delicious meals we have to offer. For those with smaller appetites, our bar menu will really hit the spot. Enjoy some of our freshly prepared food with one of our draft beers, a glass of wine, or another drink from our bar for the complete Emily's experience. We're looking forward to serving you!
