I love this place! This is my favorite in OC. The crabs are awesome but so is the other food on the buffet.

My kids love going here to eat. They love the all you can eat snow crab legs and beg us to go here every time we visit OC. It's probably one of the more expensive buffets in OC but I've never left here hungry or...More

I am not usually a fan of buffets, but my mom is! She insists on taking her entire family to a Thanksgiving Buffet because she no longer likes to cook. We have sampled our fair share of Ocean City family buffets on Turkey Day and...More

Highly recommend if you are looking for all you can eat seafood buffet with crab legs. Only negatives is didn't have clam chowder on the bar as advertised and some of the crab legs were over cooked.

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.
