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.

I've been here twice so far and was excellent both times. Waitstaff is fast at clearing plates and the bowls of crab legs or shrimp tails. I was skeptical at first because all you can eat Crab Legs aren't always the best but Embers impressed me. Always a must for dinner when I'm there now.

Thank Travis L

A group of 8 of us came on a weeknight and enjoyed the early bird special ($4 off of $39 adult). We gorged on the raw oysters and clams, steamed shrimp, snow crab legs (perfectly cooked), fresh salad bar, sautéed mussels and clams, roast beef and prime rib, fried scallops and the wide variety of desserts. Everything we tried was freshly made and tasty. Our waiter, Kevin, was very friendly and took great care of us. Embers is a perfect place for a special family night out!

We always make a trip here for dinner on our OCMD vacations. The crab legs this year were great! Hot, fresh & full of meat. Some other stuff is not so great but it balances out. We had great service.

Muhmuh1005,
We are so pleased to hear our staff is providing great service! Crab legs are one of the main items on the buffet that drives the price. We work really hard to make sure we can still get the best quality product for our guests while staying competitive with the market. Next time you visit please share with a manager what your favorite and least favorite dishes are. We love feedback from our guests so we can deliver what they want.

Again, thank you so much for your feedback.

During our recent trip we had a choice of places to eat. Since we have been to Embers on a number if past trips we decieded to go again.

We were once again pleased at our choice and choices of foods.

The wife had Crab legs and Fresh Shrimp till she was about to burst, along with several other varities of items. I chose the Carving station and was greeted by Prime Rib that melted on my mouth! The buffet was full and kept fresh our entire time there.

I believe you get what you pay for. Here we had a great meal and really enjoyed ourselves.
