Family owned and operated for over 60 years, Embers has most definitely become a staple establishment in the town of Ocean City.

Our whole family has gone there about 4 times we all like it.The price is great for all you can eat seafood with crab legs. Come on! LOL The ones who complain about the prices probably hog all the crab legs anyway. Seafood is expensive. We. Can't wait to go this season.

The food was not very good, the selection was very boring, if you are into crab legs, than it is worth the money. It was way too expensive for what is offered.

Embers has evolved over the years. A normal stop on each of our visits to OC. Always a nice selection of seafood with Americana dishes for non seafood eaters. Always something to eat and enjoy. However, quality of individual items may vary visit to visit. If off season, items may dry out from not being turned over. Pricey. Prices are... More

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... 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.
