We have always loved Embers and make this our first stop when we visit Joseph. The beer is excellent, and the food is good. If it is cold, but not too cold, you can sit outside by one of their fire pits which makes it that much better!
Embers, we love you guys. I would love to see you do something with your atmosphere though. The bright white paint and down-home green curtains and too-bright lighting doesn't necessarily make me want to stay for very long. If feels like a breakfast-lunch cafe, instead of a lunch-dinner-bar kind of place to hang out for hours. Warm the place up a bit and your customers will spend a lot more money inside!
