Eat at Embers at least 2 times a year. Love the food. There is a lot to choose from. Seating is good and you don't have to wait too long unless it is peak season. Price is reasonable for the area. Staff is nice.

The food is okay, nothing amazing. It's a bit pricey. The crab legs were the best part of this trip.

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.
