This was probably our fourth or fifth time at Emma’s and we’re never disappointed. It’s a neighborhood gem, walking distance from our home.

Nice ambience for grownups compared to the sports bars on Mamaroneck Ave in White Plains. Can be crowded at the bar but worth the wait. Food is better than average pub fair, inventive salads and always a good special or two worth trying.

From the level of ease in making a reservation to the ordering of food everything was easy, calm and simple. Add along a well-thought out menu and you have a winning formula.

What a treat to have warm pretzel sticks and mustard instead of a bread basket on the table! The corned beef hash and the mac attack burger were on point. The burger was cooked to PERFECTION! The entire experience was incredibly good.

We enjoyed the lamb special and the spinach and cheese ravioli for dinner. The ravioli was a plus by being gluten free. We also shared the beet salad appetizer (enough for two) and tartufo for dessert. I suggest making a reservation.

Love this neighborhood restaurant where the food, from burgers to entries, is always good. Service is very attentive. Love the half price bottles of wine on Monday nights. Great place to meet friends for a casual night out where everyone should find something satisfying on the menu.

Emma's is THE place for a great casual meal or delicious burger. The varied menu has something for everyone. Recommend highly and during Sept 2019 a portion of each bill is donated to the Westchester WALK TO END ALZHEIMER'S

We were excited to go to brunch to one of the well known local spots, had not been there in years. Unfortunately the food was subpar. The appetizers of fried avocado and calamari were fine. The eggs that came with two of the dishes were to be runny, poached and sunny side up, both came hard boiled. The philly cheese steak eggs benedict came with a ball of steak pieces congealed in cheese sauce. The huevos rancheros was covered in peppers, onions, and sauce. Just too much “stuff” on these dishes. If they were scaled back some and the eggs cooked correctly perhaps it may have been better. Coffee was weak and not fresh.

For my once per year stop in White Plains, NY for business, I always head to Emma's Ale House for a very good dinner. I stopped by this past Tuesday night and sat in the bar area at a high table. I only had the crusted salmon entree and a side salad but both were quite enjoyable, nicely presented and tasty. Emma's has a decent draft beer menu and good bottled beer and wine selection. I am looking forward to my next visit to Emma's in 2020, if not prior. Thank you again.
