Fodor's Review

Tucked away in a rather run-down looking strip mall, Emerald is nevertheless sought out by those who look for elaborate, carefully prepared, and sometimes costly seafood dishes. Even when the restaurant is full to capacity with 300 diners, the noise level is moderate and conversation flows easily among families and other groups ordering from the banquet menu. Market-priced—and that can be high—lobsters, clams, and fish reside in tanks until the moment of cooking. Simple
