We stopped for a late lunch. Great food and very friendly staff. Nice selection of local beers. Would highly recommend it!
Sorry but it just wasn't very good. Nothing special. Not gross though. I liked the place but it felt like they just have a couple of fryers in the kitchen and that's it. I realized after eating here that all the ratings in Duluth are inflated. 4 stars?! Come on Yelpers - where's your self respect? Service was attentive - they deserve credit for that.
Don't pass this by on the way north. Best burger I've ever had. Get the beacon burger and the sweet potato fries, it comes with a pineapple dipping sauce. Absolutely divine!

I went there for the first time last week for the all you can eat taco's and they weren't very good. The taco shells weren't pre-warmed before they filled them so they weren't crispy. The meat had no Mexican seasoning whatsoever and they were cheap with the toppings. The lettuce was warm and wilted. I was hoping for more authentic Mexican tacos, these were not....As I looked at other peoples' food it looked liked decent American fare and a reasonable price. I will return since I live in the area. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. Great views out the back windows and deck area! This place is one of the better priced restaurants on the Scenic Drive, most of the other places are what us locals call, tourist prices.....so as a local I was glad to find a reasonable place to eat without having to drive to Duluth or Two Harbors...I will go back, but not for taco's.....
I'm really happy that Emily's is open again! The new owners are really intent on giving their guests a good value and good food for their dollar. My family (2 adults, 3 young boys) stopped for lunch...everything was great, and my French Dip was excellent (not the tired old deli beef...real cut-off-the-roast beef). Even though we didn't drink any alcohol, their wine and beer list was loaded with good stuff at very fair prices. You gotta stop here!
I was here July 29, 2012 and the name is now "Lighthouse at Emily's"; website is lighthouseatemilys.com . I was here a few years ago when it was Emily's and I think it's been neatened up a bit. Love the deck on back overlooking the river and a train track. I like the food, the atmosphere, everything.
