The place looks very unassuming from the outside, but once you walk in it is quite pleasant. Booked a table in the courtyard on Grand Prix Sunday and couldn't have been happier with the service and ambience of the venue. The quality of the food left a little to be desired, but they don't pretend to be anything other than pub fare.

Jane and the team at The Emerald are awesome, and the food is easily as good as any five-star restaurant. That's why I keep going back. The private room can seat up to 20, and there is a great beer garden at the back ?

A group of lads on Punting Club weekend in Melbourne. Spent Friday afternoon in the Hotel, service was outstanding from the bar staff to those clearing tables. Food better than a Pub meal. Highly recommended. We will be back

Impeccable service and sensational food along with a rustic ambience that you can curate for any occasion. Well done Jane and Andy. And, delightful Irish lass, Denise.

Staff are just amazing! Food choices are many, serves are big and food is cooked well. Venue is huge and feels welcoming and surprisingly quiet considering how many people were there. This first time diner will definitely be back!!! Very impressed !!!

This is a classic Melbourne pub and a must!
Beautiful food, sensational staff and amazingly friendly hosts.
Loved being able to head into the bar after lunch to put a bet on the horses. Such a great place!

Wednesdays with dinner and jazz, worth the hour's drive. Working my way through the varied menu. All delicious meals served with a smile. Very friendly atmosphere

A true nod to a true pub. Have been going here off and on over the decades and it's still true to its very strong history of a family run watering hole with a great kitchen for meals. Nothing fancy but certainly nothing tacky either. Great service and an environment that still has the wonderful sense of a 'home away from home' for a drink that many pubs these days have either lost or simply ignored.

It was an excellent steak as per usual. I have been going to the Emerald since 1989. The food, atmosphere and service are always outstanding.

There is also an excellent wine list.

It is great to see the Zema back on the wine list

My husband and I always order the eye fillet. It's been consistently fantastic every time and the staff are very friendly and kind. The quality of food and service here is probably one of the best.

It has been a wonderful night. Food was delicious, service was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect. My son suggested The Emerald as it is nearby where he lives. I didn't know what to expect but to my surprise It was so lovely - very family orientated and such a lovely place. I have had such a bad week and to sit with my family and be indulged with such beautiful food and such lovely wine and wonderful hospitality. It's a new favourite place. My sincere Thanks to the Emerald Hotel. We'll be back soon

Nice old school pub. Great jazz band on Wednesday nights. Probably best for an older clientele. Good traditional pub grub.

The dining room was quiet even though there were a few guests, which made for a relaxing dinner with friends. The interiors lack character, but the staff are really really nice. The burger looked amazing, but the patty was so large that it wasn't very easy to eat it. The chicken Parma was good, but the tomato sauce a bit bitter. So, overall it was a good dinner, but there's room for improvement.

I find it difficult to believe the 5-star reviews?? This evening we booked (and arrived) for dinner with another couple at 7.30pm. There was only one table of four patrons in the entire main dining room, and one other table of patrons in the adjoining room. The dining room tables were 95% vacant. We waited for ages until we "had to" ask for menus. We were given one food menu for the four of us, so we "had to" ask for more menus. Then when the "additional" menus arrived, one menu had NO content (only the menu cover). After we ordered, we waited for ages for our meals. The patrons at the only other occupied table also became upset because their meals had not arrived yet either (they had arrived before we did). While we were waiting for our meals, we couldn't believe our eyes when a lady from the hotel started to clean spots off the dining room wall. We became so annoyed that it took longer than one hour for the meals to finally arrive. The staff seemed to be totally occupied taking drinks to the table in the room adjacent to the dining room and appeared to totally ignore us. They seemed to be oblivious to us dining room patrons and chatted disturbingly boisterously to each other as they "rushed" the beverages loudly past our table to the room adjacent to ours. We were terribly disappointed at the staff's transparent lack of consideration for our "dining experience". When our meals "finally" arrived, they were reasonable, so to be fair...I shall award the hotel one additional star. Boisterous (rough) staff, totally unacceptably slow service (the dining room was almost empty). Overall experience was very disappointing. We shall not return !!

The emerald hotel has been my local pub now for over 25 years
It has hosted many a family gathering for a lot of special occasions

Over the years, you could not get a better place to be blessed as a local... the Lewis family are always welcoming, helpful, friendly and pay attention to detail, making sure everyone and everything is satisfactory.

Whether it is for food, ambience, special occasion, I can assure you will not be disappointed...up there with the very best old fashion pubs ... shame they are starting to dwindle in this modern world ??

For the past five years we have held our President's Lunch at the Emerald. What can I say, they never disappoint. Sam was as fabulous as ever! She followed up and ensured the venue was perfect. Our waitress this year was Armani, she was brilliant. So attentive and ensured everyone was happy!
Thanks again to Jane, Sam & Armani!

Good is good to average pub food.
Bar only. Perhaps the bistro is up a notch.
Nothing exceptional.
Music is always to loud .
And l am not in conversation. Won't return . Not that they will notice. Always very busy.

I cannot tell you how much we enjoy going to this Pub!
The food is fantastic the staff are so friendly and engaging that you feel that you have known them all your life. It is not often these days that you leave a Pub/Bistro not only raving about the food but with a huge smile on you face. Cannot recommend the Emerald Hotel more highly and you all should go to this lovely venue.

The Emerald Hotel has the best hotel food in Melbourne. Went there last night for a birthday party and had delicious Corned Silverside. Great home cooked food at affordable prices. Service was excellent. Great for a celebration or family night out.

One of the best pub meals that you could have in Melbourne. No. IT IS THE BEST.
Great menu. It is a return to the times of a proud chef delivering consistently high quality food with great ingredients and flavour. The head chef is Nepalese. ? you ask. Why then so good and authentic Aussie pub food. Answer. Because he is great and applies his skill to a strange to him requirement to cook Aussie grub and he does it brilliantly. There are Aussie chefs who can't do it. Great staff, and the attentive family owners add to the experience. Go there before you die, because you will get a sample of what it was, and is like, to eat and drink in a fantastic pub. A million ?

Rude and inconsiderate.
My partner offerd to pay him to use the toilet and he refused saying its for paying customers only... she offered to pay him to use the toilet. What a inconsiderate human being. Do not go to this pub he does not deserve ur kindness. Id like to add that their is no way this pub could possibly be a 4.5 star rating... look at the facts. Their is so many 1 star reviews complaining about this pub yet their stats say otherwise... they have doctored their reviews. This place is absolutely disgraceful.
If I could give minus stars I would

A great Pub with very good food. Excellent feeling when entering as this Hotel has a real atmosphere of how a corner Pub should be. It has many areas for functions and plenty of car parking all around. Would recommend you give it a try as I know you will enjoy the experience. It has the Bar and a Restaurant with three other areas for functions. A nice place for a small Wedding.
