Stay away, stay far away. Macaroni soggy, crab legs are mushy and chicken taste like wood. The Crab legs were over cooked, thought perhaps they were prepared early in anticipation for the mad rush, but they came they kept coming out they way.

Meal and service was excellent. Our waiters, John and Jake went the extra mile to be sure we had all we needed. I like being able to try a lot of different dishes and that was my reason for picking Embers. The buffet isn't cheap...More

They have a large variety of food. We liked 95% of it. A few things were not as hot as you'd like. The staff were awesome and pleasant.

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.
