Had heard that they served tasty food but we didn't get that far. It's a 21 and Over joint. So smokey we didn't stay. If smoke doesn't bother you and you don't mind having smelly cloths give Embers a try Seems that they always have a decent crowd.

This was a place we decided to eat at while on our way to Chicago. The waitress was friendly and explained all the offerings. We ordered the ribs and side salads. The salads arrived and were awesome. Fresh lettuce, real bacon, croutons, tomatoes, and three types of grated cheese. Dressings tasted homemade and were delicious. The ribs were fall off... More

The ribs here are a good or better than any you will ever eat. My wife and I stopped and ate here for the first time a week ago. The food was amazing. The ribs were fall off the bone tender and their BBQ sauce is incredible. I honestly can't remember what my wife got but she was impressed with... More

Absolutely best place to eat your classic American dishes.. steaks, steak tips, best and largest chicken wings in the area are all great. Can't go wrong with any of the food or entertainment. Kareoke Fridays, and bands on Saturdays except the summer months have the best entertainment in the area.

Stopped at this place after a round of golf with my buddies based on the great reviews. The minute we walked in it was evident that this was a smoking allowed establishment. It wasn't overpowering, but the "smell" was there nonetheless. We were too hungry to leave so we powered through the smell. The burgers were very good and cooked... More

some of the best bar food I've had.. large portions, everything cooked to order. they have a good selection, from chicken wings, steaks and burgers, fish sandwiches or dinners. Home made soups are great along with the home made desserts.

tucked in a little strip, this place looks a little scary from the outside but do not be fooled! It had a number of tvs plus a projection screen showing sports, a nice center bar and pool tables/darts. While they did allow smoking, they had a very good vent system so I was not bothered by the smoke at all.... More

Have had most of the items on the menu. They are a better bar than a restaurant. It is the hangout of locals and the motorcycle crowd. Not for me. The food was average and overpriced

Embers has some of the best sandwiches around! The hamburgers have the best grilled taste. The reubens and Philly cheesesteak sandwiches are huge and tasty! Good service staff.
