I'LL BE BACK!

Just a nice place to sit at the bar and visit with the locals or have a bite to eat. This is one of the more upscale places where the locals go. We had the pizza and would rate it a solid four stars.

Emberz was recommended by our hotel and did not disappoint. We both had the burgers and were very nice. Cool atmosphere as they had. Band playing in the front. Really enjoyed.

restaurant had great atmosphere and was convenient. We arrived an hour before the kitchen closed because our hotel manager said they had great wood fired pizza. Our pizza was served burnt (on the edge and bottom). When we asked if they could bring another one we were told the kitchen was closed but she would take something off the price.... More

We probably would have been much happier in sticking with the tried and true staple--pizza, what with a wood fired oven ( always a plus) and a good pizza track record. But Emberz had locally advertised that there were more entree items on the menu, and diners just inside the window caught our eye with the Flinstone -like whole rib... More

Always love the food, drinks, staff and atmosphere at emberz. Tried the Turkey Avocado Sandwich which was great. The wood stove baked pizza is awesome too. The staff adds just the needed touch to make Emberz a great place to eat and have a drink or two.

I loved the atmosphere of this place, they have a wood burning oven for their pizzas, and it really adds to the great ambiance. While they have what some would call a basic menu, they go above and beyond in all their dishes, elevating diner fare into something amazing. The bar is great. not only do they have your standard...

My burger came with a fried egg on top........... very interesting and was good. It also came with lots and lots of french fries; maybe to many. Because this resturant is located in an old building its a little drafty. Its worth a try...if you would like a different kind of burger

My husband and I finally tried Emberz and we are so glad we did! The service was fast and attentive, and the staff is very friendly. Our sandwiches were wonderful, and were accompanied by excellent salads. You will not leave hungry! We will definitely return, and will bring our out of town guests here.

If your look for quick service along with top notch lunch, you won't be disappointed. I had the fish & chips. Fantastic! Do absolutely try the garlic fries served with a creamy ranch. Coffee was served with a mini-press at your table and was very smooth. What a nice touch. The atmosphere was fine, the service very friendly and efficient/... More
