The crab legs were sweet and very good. Unfortunately, everything on the buffet including the very tough roast beef was like food in an Assisted Living dining room. When I entered Embers there was a lot of young children voices in the private room to...More

We had eaten here a couple of times several years ago and always enjoyed it. Tried a few different places since. Last year we returned again and it was great. This year, with fingers crossed, we returned and it was just as good.

The first time we went it was great. Not so much the 2nd time around. Food was just not the same as first visit. It's good but not worth the price.More

Our trip recently to Ocean City was amazing, but what's a trip to the ocean without having some seafood? We decided to give the Embers a try for their seafood buffet. We are a family of three, we came very hungry and left very full!...More

We dined here on Mothers Day so I thought food would be turning over faster, as we were here off season. Apparently I was wrong, as most of the food tasted as if it had been sitting around for quite a bit and wasn't hot...More

Save your money. The buffet isn't that great. The food is overpriced and blah. They seem to hoard the seafood by giving you a small bit at a time.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.
