The first and the largest All You Can Eat Prime Rib and Seafood Buffet in Ocean City with the greatest variety of seafood, including crab legs, and clams and oysters, chicken, beef, pasta and vegetable offerings pleases visitors with the Executive Chef’s culinary creations. Family owned and operated for over 60 years, Embers has most definitely become a staple establishment in the town of Ocean City.

The restaurant it self is well designed and clean. Has an upscale feel and that must be why they charge $33 for an all you can eat buffet. The crabs were well cooked and fresh, also enjoyed the Prime Rib. There is a pasta bar with about four to six choices but really not that many sea food options. I... More

A little expensive for an all you can eat buffet with limited seafood choices. Also, some cold items are kept under a heat light which is not good and I got sick off the raw oysters.

Highly overpriced. The food was cold. The steamed clams sat out so long they started to get dry around the edges. I would not go here again even if you paid me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stopped at Embers because Phillips wasn't open yet. This isn't the first time we have been here but we usually go to Phillips because they have more of a selection, in my opinion. Not much jumped out at me to choose aside from the old bay shrimp and the crab legs. Endless amounts and you can choose as many as... More

In all fairness, I did not realize this was only a buffet until we drove to it. Not being a fan of buffets, it was what I expected. Standard food. Crab legs small. A bit more pricier than others. I did find the pitcher of Sangria to be reasonably priced. Service was exceptional though.

I been in ocean city for years thought I would try. If you don't like crab legs it's not worth it not $34 dollars. Doesn't include a drink. The chicken although fresh it tasted funny. The mash potatoes were garlic type but had a Strang tast. No other potatoes but fried. The prime rib was ok but the a u... More

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.
