Good food!

Emberz is a good "girl's night out" or date night place. They have music, really good food. Sometimes, if they are really busy, it can be a bit slow. Pricey for taking the family. Nice place to go "after hours." Classy.

Casual dining plus a bar. Cozy. Located at the entrance to the Old Downtown on So. Washington Street. Parking on street. Open for lunch and dinner, I believe. Menu has appetizers, pizza, burgers, salads, fish n chips. pasta, chicken, and sliders. I guess my biggest disappointment was the inattentive server. Next were the overly salty sweet potato fries; they had... More

Have eaten at Emberz multiple times. Food usually great. This time not so much. Ordered a burger, got sick not too long after meal. Not going back.

My husband and I wanted a good burger so we chose the Emberz. We had the B.S. burger. It's just a burger and a bun, but you can have it all for a dollar more. Thick and juicy! We enjoyed it. Would go back when we are there.

Brussells sprouts in California?! The meals were nice enough; comfort food given fancy names but fairly straightforward presentation and good taste. The seats in the booth we had were sagging and uncomfortable, and the decor was unispired. The redeeming feature for us was the table service. The young lady looking after us was pleasant, chirpy and helpful and made it... More

Staff are great, Sarah and Keeley, with food being just amazing. From a Southern fried chicken sandwich the massive tomahawk steak to the pizza. We just loved this... More

Was little pricey but the restaurant has a nice clean feel to it. Very loud but maybe it was the people around us? The music? Once they left it was less noisy and we could actually hear eachother. Server wasn't friendly at all. Mac and cheese is FLIPPIN FANTASTIC!!!! Caesar salad was good. My shrimp, olive penne pasta was so... More

food was good, but wasn't told of the dining room, listened to sad stories for bar spoken too loud, waitress could have cared less-not for me

So, so great! The three of us had a hamburger, fish and chips, and wings. The vinergerette salad dressing had an amazing flavor. Nothing disappointed. The meal was fabulous. Nicest waitress and fun atmosphere. We would return again and again...but we are from Indiana and won't have the pleasure. The best thing I can do is give this good review... More
