The place was very big and they had a lot to choose from in the buffet lines. The wait staff was very friendly and the food was good. The only drawback I had was the price. I'm not sure how the comparison was to other buffets in the area, but my family of six walked out paying a fairly large... More

I went to Embers with my wife and daughter. There were crab legs, shrimp, seafood soups, prime rib, and many buffet dishes. All had good quality. It was among the better seafood buffets in Ocean City. I would go back again next year when I visit Ocean City.

As a teenager I used to be a bread girl at Embers. As an adult I would encourage people to stay away. Maryland is known for its blue crab & old bay... You will find neither at Embers.

Good atmosphere. Excellent service. Seafood variety was lacking. Snow crab, clams, shrimp, and a few fried items was the extent. The 2 clam dishes (imperial & dip) tasted awful. Great variety of other tasty foods but that is not why I paid $38 for the buffet!

Lots of crab dishes, fried or boiled shrimp, fried oysters were great. Prime rib was very good. Very good selection. Not a lot of desserts, but filled up on seafood.

The waitstaff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was roomy. However, most of the food was tasteless and it was pricey. The Alaskan Crab Legs were decent and a couple of the desserts were good. I would not return.

This was an all you could eat buffet. The crab was good, the sides were mediocre. The macaroni and cheese had sooooo much cheese, it was like a heart attack on a plate!! Male staff was friendly, female, not so much.
