The buffet at the Embers was delicious. Good variety of meats, vegetables and desserts. Service was excellents. We had 47 on the coach and the restuarant had no problem seating and serving us.

The sign outside said it was "Voted the Best Buffet". Well, it's NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We should have walked out. Service was slow and this was for breakfast! The place wasn't busy at all and it looked like we were the only ones there. The food was not that great and it was was cold. We would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!!!! Even the coffee was not good.

What a terrible experience. Service was extremely poor. The waitress acted like she didn't want to be there any more than we did. The "Best Buffet in 2012" was definitly lacking. We ordered off the menu. Hubby left part of his pastie on his plate. Cream of broccoli soup was disgusting. Meat on my patty melt cover only half the bread. Watched the waitress scoop our coleslaw from the buffet line and then hand it to us. Waited 30 minutes to get our food. What a disaster!!!! Also watched other people turn up their noses at the food. How can they stay in business?????
