Best buffet in Ocean City!

This restaurant boasts an all-you-can eat international buffet. There are more delicious and varied dishes on this buffet than you can ever hope to try in one sitting. Fresh seafood, American, Asian, Indian cuisine. A great raw and steam bar is also part of the buffet. A very large, open... read more

I liked my buffet meal at Embers but did not LOVE it. The best part was the crab, fried Pollack and shrimp. It wasn't busy as it was 2 days after thanksgiving and service got better as the night went on. We ordered a pitcher of sangria for around $13 to share and it was tasty but I hardly got... More

There was nothing on the Buffett that I could say was really good. A few items were ok, most horrible. Nothing I would return for. Even the crab legs were over cooked, Soup was bland, Fish was dry, fried stuff was all breading and rubbery. Expensive and definitely not worth it. My husband left hungry since nothing looked or tasted... More

Ember's is not fine dining, but is not the worst buffet. We were here on a Saturday night in October and there was a small crowd. For the most part they delivered what they promised. The crab legs were plentiful and the peel and eat shrimp were good. Some of the fried fish left something to be desired. There were... More

We had the buffet and it was delicious. Just about every kind of seafood, chicken and meats were available. We dug into the desserts as well. I'm giving Embers Five Stars!

We came midweek in July. I think it was a Monday or Tuesday. Food wasn't overall terrible. It was actually really good! Love all the options even if you don't like seafood. Place was well decorated. Service was definitely lacking. We waited a long time for drinks, refills and our check. The service charge was included on our bill but... More

We were planning to enjoy Embers restaurant during our Ocean City visit in October. Unfortunately, they are only open on Friday and Saturday evenings in Oct. We did not have a chance to try it out.

Our family travels to Ocean City several times a year. For many years, without question, we would go to the Embers for our seafood night. They always had a nice selection, friendly staff, and an average wait. We hadn't gone to the Embers the last 2-3 years, and looked forward to going back this year. There was a short wait,... More

Great variety of food , but uncozy , chilly and a bit overpriced I would recommend if you wanna try many different things, seafood is delicious! Another big minus it is closed during lunch time :( ( open from 16.00)
