I've been going here since my wife and her family introduced me to it many years ago, even when we are in town for a day, we have to eat here for dinner. They always have a great selection and the food is really good! Our waiter this time was fantastic and couldn't have been happier with our experience.

Embers is one of the best places to eat in ocean city. The buffet has a carving station with plenty of choices including Prime rib. The buffet itself is stocked full of fresh seafood, snow crab legs, side dishes and vegetables. There is a fantastic dessert bar. Definitely worth the money.

The buffet is pricey, be we all go for the crab legs and they were great. Plenty of them, sweet, and hot. The dining room is a bit steamy and dingy, but for a buffet it's ok. Food was trays were filled, with lots of choices. Our waiter could have been more attentive, we needed our plates cleared and drinks... More

A very extensive buffet offering about anything you could want from snow crab legs to carved meats to pasta to asian.... A little pricey at $40 but worth it if you're hungry. Excellent service at the bar and our table. We never had to wait to have dirty dishes or full shell buckets cleared. All of the food was good... More

Great seafood buffet. Everything was very fresh and in great quantity. Our server Kirsten was very attentive and very helpful. She even suggested a place for breakfast tomorrow. I suggest trying the tiffany's punch! 48oz of awesomeness. Thanks Kirsten!

We have been to our fair share of buffets at multiple locations around the country. I think this was one of the best for multiple reasons. 1. The selection- not only of the fried fish selection, but the steamed ( clams/ mussels/crab legs). Carving station with roast beef/ prime rib/ ham. 2. We went up/down to buffet no fewer that... More

We came early at about 5:30 on a Sunday night and waited about 15 minutes to get in. There looked to be a wait as we were leaving as well. Everything on the buffets seemed hot and fresh. The main attraction seemed to be the snow crab legs which looked hot and plentiful. They had fried shrimp, but would have... More

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, clams and oysters, and many other seafood dishes. We also have many chicken, beef, pasta and vegetable offerings that pleases visitors along 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. Please call with any questions or to verify our hours of operation, due to the nature of the business we don't have a set closing time.
