It's OK.

I am not really a buffet lover because I am always watching my weight... but when on vacation sometimes we end up at a buffet just because there are so many around that it's hard not to end up in one. This preface to say that I am not an expert on buffets but I can say that we enjoyed... read more

This buffet is always fresh. The only bad thing is how crowded it gets. This year we went at 5:00pm it was alot easier to get around. If you have children I would consider an earlier dinner.

Me and my boyfriend went for lunch after much deliberation about which seafood buffet to go to. We chose embers as it is probably the most renowned and has a good reputation. However it wasn't all we had hoped, there wasn't anything particularly wrong or bad it just wasn't worth the reputation they have achieved, in my opinion. They have... More

This June was my first experience at Ember's. Don't let the size of the building fool you. Once inside, the place is huge ! But enough about the building, let's talk food. If you leave hungry, that's your fault ! You name it, shrimp, fresh fish, chicken, pasta and everything else is there. There's a carving station with beef and... More

A very good value. It cost $34.99 and we used the $4.00 off coupon for any time and with the two of us, they took $4.00 off both our meals. That a total of $8.00 off our total bill. What a bargain. Get the coupon from the local business magazines.

Hadn't been to Embers in years. There are so many choices of items on their buffet that you will leave so stuffed! Wonderful crab legs, seafood dishes, prime rib, ham, etc. Lots of desserts to choose from too. The staff are helpful and friendly. Maybe a little expensive but worth it for high quality food.

We went here to end our beach vacation. Our party of three had to wait on a table, we were herded into a section and sat right on top of another family. The place was really loud and not what I remembered it to be. The buffet had less seafood on the bar than years past. They hid the raw... More

We thought for the price it was average. Service OK, food OK but expected better. You can eat at the bar or at tables. Big TV's at the back of the bar so not exactly a romantic dining experience!
