Yummy in my tummy!

Awesome buffet with something for everyone. Price is expensive but not compared to other buffets in OC. Waitress was great. Didn't have one bad bite!

Wife and I were looking for a place to eat and seen this advertising banner flying behind a airplane on the beach. We arrived at restaurant at 3 and received the early bird $4.00 off price special. Plenty of food choices and everything we ate had good taste and there was plenty of it. Look forward to returning again.

I suppose I should lower my expectations. Having dined there many times over the years and been satisfied, I'm a bit confused about their arrangement now. Two restaurants, two entrances, one huge dining room. Their intimate dining alcoves are gone, replaced by what feels like a cafeteria dining atmosphere. If you select AYCE, the tables are barely large enough for... More

Ric648, Please do not lower your expectations and do considering returning! The Embers Restaurant and BLU Crabhouse and Rawbar are in fact two restaurants and offer two rather distinct dining experiences. Your comments are appreciated and are not taken lightly. We strive to make every dining experience better and better. More

We went here for dinner with a group of friends. It was very good & a wide variety of food. The only thing I was disappointed about was I wanted king crab legs but there was a huge line; I wished they had two people helping out instead of one. Other then that everything was good.

It was a toss up between this place and another fine establishment. Embers was cheaper and closer so it won. Service was great and the food was very good. Something for everybody I'd say!.

If you are hungry...this is your "go to". The food is definitely hot and for the most part...good. Just good. And of course, you can't go wrong with all you can eat crab legs. But if you're looking for a gourmet meal...keep driving.

Spring break in Ocean City this year (2015) should have been exciting and fun, but instead it was cold, wet dreary and windy. So, what to do when it's like that? EAT!! Yeah! and eat we did do. Out of all of the buffets we went to, The Embers rank high up there. The food was so good and all... More
