Ocean City during the off season has very limited restaurants open. We ate the buffet dinner here, and just happened to go when it was seniors night, which gave us a very nice discount. Most people were seniors that night, and many ate huge amounts of the Snow Crab Legs. The food was not wonderful, but it was edible and... More

I thought the food was just o.k at Embers eating both buffet and Ala carte. I didn't think the buffet had anything special about it. The servers are young and unattentive.

We decided to stop here while visiting OC and that was a huge mistake. We were seated literally with another family which was extremely weird. The buffet itself was just sad... All the seafood looked tired and crab legs were overcooked. Don't go here.

During the fall and winter, when the Delmarva resorts prepare to close for the winter, many offer special dinners and prices. My wife and I have been coming to Ocean City for 12 years and notice that many of the restaurants feature buffet type dining which is not our preference. Last week for the first time we decided to try... More

We went to Embers on the recommendation of my wife's hair dresser. It is a casual atmosphere with a viewable grill from the dining area. The menu is mostly affordable items like pizza. I had a rib eye steak which was very tasty. it ran $32 which is on the high side for this establishment. it gets a little on... More

Good selection if you are very hungry. Crab legs, prime rib, pasta, etc. Not gourmet, but good. Pricey compared to hometown buffets $33 per person, but you are in a vacation town.
