Went to Emmas with one of my sons for dinner. It was about 6:30 on Friday evening and it was packed in the bar and restaurant area.
It has a great location with a patio right on the lake and an outside bar that is open in the summer. The inside has a large bar and dining area and a dance floor some evenings with a DJ.
My son had about three pounds of wings, two pounds with lemon pepper coating and one with a curry coating. They are relatively dry wings and he really enjoyed them - taking some left overs home with him. I had a thinly sliced roast beef on a bun au jus and it was tender and delicious (the juice was a little too salty). I ordered an ice tea and it really tasted like tea! The manager came over and asked if we liked our choices. He was talking to each table individually (this is a nice way to keep patrons coming back).
It is a large restaurant and is packed with a variety of ages - a friendly kind of place. The noise was somewhat deafening but it was just laughter and people talking loudly. It was not a quiet place to have a meal on this particular night. The prices were reasonable and the food was very good. We will definitely be coming back.
great patio view even in fog
variety of clientele and very busy
