I'd highly recommend Embers for an enjoyable meal experience. They have a wide selection of menu options. We've enjoyed their barbeque chicken pizza, as well as their burgers and Chicken dinners. The options for the chicken dinners include toppings that are sure to please (barbeque...flavor; lemon with tomatoes)... And, their happy hour beverage prices are very reasonable. The staff has always been very welcoming and service has been great!More

We came during a lunch break because the restaurant was near our conference. My friends each ordered the wood fire pizza and they each truly enjoyed their choices. I ordered the buffalo bites and was disappointed. My chicken had multiple pieces of gristle and after...a few bites, I was done. Our waiter was friendly, but he failed to check back after the food was delivered and it took a very long time to get paid out.More

Just finished a twelve day stay at the adjacent hotel and ate several times here at Embers. The menu is on the smaller side but do have offerings covering the beef, chicken, fish, salad genres. A wood fired pizza oven is also in use. All...my meals were consistently decent/good pizza, never disappointing. My one pasta meal, while tasty, was soft/ overcooked. Just one complaint in 6-8 meals is not too bad .... A very special shout out to “Adam” a hardworking server/bartender. Always pleasant, attentive and efficient. He does this business much good in the way he plays his craft.More

Embers was all new to us. I feel like it could be a chain and we just don’t have one where we live but we have a great meal with exceptional service. We would go back in a heartbeat. I had the beef and mushroom...wood fired pizza (yum!) and my hubby had a burger. We had some sort of loaded fries appetizer that was amazing too.More

We have been here a few times for dinner and it has always been great. Sidewinder nacho fries are amazing! Chicken fried steak is one of the best I’ve ever had. Great service and quite environment. Will continue to come back!

Stopped into Embers for a couple drinks and some food. The staff was very friendly and made some great recommendations. We had a variety of appetizers in the bar and they were all excellent. If you like craft beers try the San Antonio Lager. Very...light and refreshing.More

I met a couple friends here while in town for a conference. The Embers Nachos were excellent. My friend ordered a slice of pumpkin cheesecake, and it was huge, so she cut it in half, and we each had a great piece of cheesecake.
