This was by far the WORST food I have ever eaten. Maryland crab soup was Campbell's vegetable soup with sheds of some kind of meat, not sure if it was crab and it was not even hot. There was no ranch dressing on salad bar and when I was told to ask my waiter, he failed to deliver. Tuna casserole... More

I took my step-daughter and her friend here for dinner. This was the worst meal I have ever had as far back as I can remember. They charge $33 for all the cold Grade D food you can eat. I felt like I was robbed. Only redeemening factor was our server was good but its a buffet.

If you ever saw the buffet scene from Vegas Vacation you would be at the Embers. Crab Imperial (what is this) glad it was labeled...Raw seafood bar same area as the desserts (Yum)...Crab soup (or was it marinara sauce).....Save your money!!!

I eat at seafood buffets all over the United States and this place is just average. I was actually a bit disappointed with the place since i call before hand and what they say they have on the phone to what they actually have were two different things. If i ever go back i will look first to see if... More

We went here for my Dad's 50th birthday Dinner. Our food was pretty good, except for very very bad prime rib.

I can honestly say with a very clear conscience that this was by far the worst meal I've ever had in Ocean City. The food was either way under cooked or over cooked. The fried shrimp were like rubber, the shrimp scampi noodles were raw, the crab legs were soggy. I voiced my concerns with the manager and she just... More

We were here on the last Sunday night buffet in off-season, and the place was practically empty. Despite that fact, the food bar was very well stocked, of good quality, and the waitress attentive and personable. The buffet was the only thing available- there was no ability to order off the menu, and since my wife obvious wasn't eating enough... More
