Get there early if you can, it will save you a few dollars. Food is always hot and fresh. Great staff! They, the staff, jumps in and helps wherever needed. Example: Soda was empty, waitress walking past my table, noticed it, took it, asked what i was drinking, brought me a new one. Plates are cleared almost as soon as... More

We decided on a buffet for dinner, as we had a fairly large group. We all thought the food was average. Also, the plates were cold, so by the time we got back to the table, our food was cold too. We all got plenty to eat, but I don't think I would go back.

We came to OCMD for thanksgiving for something different. We came to embers for their thanksgiving buffet. It was wonderful. All "real" food. Not instant. Real mashed potatoes , real gravy. All homemade food. You could just taste it. A wonderful array of sides. And the desserts were fantastic too.. All the "normal tradition " desserts plus more! Fantastic

This is our 2nd time eating here. The buffet had a great variety and the food was fresh. The actual dining room has been updated and renovated since our last time here. It's now open and lighter with a better color scheme. The staff was amazing to watch as everyone helped each other. When we spoke to the manager on... More

The buffet is great. So much variety of meats, seafood, and an abundance of desserts. You get a lot for your money and they keep the food refilled often so your not waiting for anything when it gets low. It has a lot of seating and you dont have to wait long for a table. The food tastes great. We... More

Embers seafood buffet was great. The fried oysters were hot so were the crab legs. Cold/steamed/fried shrimp. Several kinds of fish. Other meats were plentiful also. Fiid was not over seasoned. Really enjoyed it. I think it was $30 a person.

Not worth the money, went this past Saturday, and the food was subpar, the Prime Rib wasn't very good at all, the Crab Legs were not warm at all, the shells where to mushy to crack. Maybe it was because it was mid-October why the food was sub par, but it pretty much turned me off for any all you... 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.
