Ok food but overpriced for the quality

I went here after getting a $10 off card at the Boat Show that I was working for the weekend over Valentine's day. I had been here before but it had been years ago. At the normal price of $33.95 it would be WAY overpriced. I got it for $28.99 plus drink (soda) plus tax came to about $38-$39. Had... read more

28.99 and no oysters or scallops and very little steamed seafood, crab legs very salty, too much fried foods and the sweet tea was nasty, couldn't find the steamed shrimp until I went for dessert and there it was on the dessert bar cold as Ice.

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
