Description: 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.

“Great Food for a Reasonable Fee”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

We paid $32 and some change for two adult buffets. The crab legs were a bit overcooked, but everything else was divine. Shrimp, oysters, mussels...all you can eat! The only thing missing was crawfish.

I also want to add that the Easter Bunny came out and sang happy birthday to the table next to us. The restaurant has a family atmosphere and they even serve pizza and chicken fingers on the buffet. There were many families and the kids seemed to be having a great time.

The desert table needed a little bit of work. The rice pudding and apple pie were not good. Nor was the icecream ( they have a wall soft-serve machine). My spouse enjoyed their wine selection, and overall we had a great experience.

“VG as usual.”
Reviewed 4 November 2011

For Sept, we were expecting a cutback in food choices as advised by friends who previously visited. The only thing cut back was all the haywire and wait times that happen in the summer.

“Not worth the money!”
Reviewed 3 November 2011

visited here with entire family for the buffet. There was not much variety of food -- mostly fish dishes. Had to wait several times for buffets to be refilled. Some food was not hot. Definately not worth the price.
