Emmett's Social Table
- Open Now
Good place to go with friends or family..great atmosphere. Second time here, gets better every time. Adding to original review...this is just a great little spot, feels good, great service, comfortable atmosphere. Had a great time with party of 6. Drinks and good clean food. Wait time for table was an hour but worth it, was St Patrick's weekend and more busy than usual, they do take reservations but waiting out front talking with good friends made the time go by. Would wait again for good food and service. Love waxhaw and the restaurants...
First time eating here and I have to say the establishment was well worth the visit. Gabriella was absolutely amazing! She explained the menu very well as some of the food was outside of my norm. Her chipper, upbeat personality made the entire experience at Emmets wonderful! The suggested food was excellent and it is a restaurant worth going back to.
Service was average. I had seafood mac and cheese. Very little cheese, had to look at the bottom of dish to find any. Was also to have shrimp and crab. Only had crab. Expected better, very mediocre. Also had the Brussels sprouts, was suppose to be coated with bacon and something. Not coated very well, sub par from the cooking staff is all I can think of. Hoping it was an off night. Will go back just to see if it gets better.
It was a busy Friday. Our server was working hard, along with everyone else. To make a long story short, some of our food was missed and the server did all she could to get it made. We weren't upset, and understood the circumstances, but the manager came by and expressed her sincere apologies and went out of their way to make it right. No matter what business your in, sometimes things happen. But how you handle it shows your true character. You don't really know how good the warranty is until something breaks and you have to use it. In this regard, the staff at Emmets is first rate. The food was really good as were the beverages. But the care put into our service is what made the experience, even with the mishap. Great job folks... We'll be back.
Our first time at Emmet's, visiting family in Waxhaw for Thanksgiving, group lunch (9 adults) before most of us headed home. Great choice! The historic ambience was charming. All of us shared many dishes, all delicious, then passed around all four of the desserts. Perfect ending! Our server, Bella, was excellent as well as a delightful person. Hope to return here on a future trip to Waxhaw!
