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

I confess that the reason we walked into Emberz was mostly to get out of the heat and also because one of my companions, who has food allergies, saw a smoked salmon salad on the menu that she thought she could eat. I was not hopeful. There was no one else in the place at lunch time, our waitress was... More

...baked in a wood fired oven! Forget anything else on the menu. Get it. Perhaps share it, if you are a light eater. Skip the pizzas. Try the risotto. Good service. Kind of loud. Good bar with friendly, competent bar keeper. Had a great time.

Food quality is very good. Try their variety of fries. You can split the order to try 2 different styles. Price is reasonable. Located in downtown. In a historical building with cool features. Food quality is good. Better than many big cities american food restaurant

We have been to Emberz 3 or 4 times now and although I enjoyed the drinks, the food hasn't wowed me. The first trip it was great, but the following times it failed to make me want to go back again. If the consistency came together better, this would be a nice place to eat.

We have been here for dinner twice. My sister and her husband have been to Emberz about five times. We all agree, the food is delicious, the service is good, but the brick walls, hard floors etc cause the noise level to be quite high. Just don't go there to have a quiet romantic dinner. Just go to enjoy some... More
