Got it? It's sort of a tradition. Even though my review should be older and it's been awhile since Dad and I went there it was still a tradition. It's been around since.... well, a long time.

I have visited Emerald Restaurant many times over the past few years and the service is always excellent and the food is always good. I have had sandwiches, steaks, shrimp and other meals with my wife and it was always very good.

One of us had the steak sandwich with fries, one the grilled chicken wrap with the black bean relish rolled inside. Very reasonably priced for very good food. The atmosphere is very nice - you can be on a nice date here but you're also comfortable in shorts and a t shirt. Friendly service.
