This buffet was tauted as the best there is. Most of the stuff is a whole lot better at a Golden Corral than here. Poor quality food is their main ingredient. High priced.

This is a great buffet. They have many selections and is very clean. The food is always hot and fresh. The food was very good for a buffet. I would definitely reccomend.

We went to Embers with 6 adults and 2 children under 2 yrs old. The selection and quality of food was really good. At times, seemed like they weren't refilling the buffet as quickly as needed, but for the most part it was ok. The only thing that was annoying was the gratuity. They added in 18% (if I remember...

First visit to seafood buffet. King crab legs, shrimp, mussels, clams, breaded shrimp, different fish entrees.Prime rib was ok. It was ok if your going to eat seafood. There is a variety of food for all, but 33 pp plus beverages is not a bargain. Could have had a real nice meal elsewhere. Desserts have a lot to be desired.

We have been visiting the Embers for more than 30 years and remember when the Seafood Buffet was only one night a week. It was phenomenal in those days. Now a trip to the Embers is more like a visit to the Golden Corral, or one of those places. You have to work your way past the pizza, onion rings,... More

We wanted to hit an AYCE buffet so we gave Embers a try. I like crab legs and that's what i ate most of. I also liked the mussels. I did have plain rice and crab soup that had no crab in it. The Caesar Salad was wilted. The service was slow for a buffet. our waitress had an attitude,... More

Typical "all you can eat buffet". Flavors from all the items dissipate under the buffet heat lamps and through the steam baths keeping the chaffing dishes warm. The big draw is supposed to be the king crab legs, but these turned out to be "princely" sized at best and turned rubbery by the time they were back to the table.... More

Great food, but could use more not seafood options. A bit noisy inside. And a little expensive but not outrageous. Would return.

We went to Embers looking for seafood and certainly found it. We have been to some of the cheaper ones - this one is fairly pricey at around $33.00 per person, but nonetheless very good. Embers offers what they bill as a Seafood & Prime Rib buffet. All the food is fresh and tasty.... And their offerings are certainly better... More
