This is a go to for private parties and special events. Their king crab is so good. Steaks are very good & grouper as well. I’ve never had anything bad. One of my absolute favs here is the crab bisque. Best soup ever! Very rich!...More

I’ve eaten twice I’ve over 6 months. This most recent time (April 2018), I ordered their Ribeye with Lobster Mash and Grilled Blue Cheese Tomatoes. The dish was $40. Firstly, it is NOT a $40 steak. This ribeye was half as thick as it should’ve...More

Three couples dined at Embers Wood Grill. Amazing food, selection, preparation, and taste, a real trifecta. Filets, ribeys, and short ribs ordered. Lobster/mashed, broiled beefsteak tomatoes, mushrooms, asparagus, we sampled it all. Even the lobster bisque. Great wine too. Silver Oak and a Caymus.

Two side dishes. The portions were generous. We are big eaters and didn’t leave hungry.
