During all those years co-owner Tim Brooks has emphasized personal and individualized customer service for all of our guests. Our regular guests sincerely tell us that our team members our just like family to them.
Over the years Emerald Island has also helped to build a community of businesses in the Water Street District with our Exclusive Vendor Partner Program.
