Primarily a steak restaurant the menu offered portions from 6-12oz to meet all appetites. I had a delicious cup of chowder to start. My steak was cooked to perfection. Two side dishes came with each main course. Plenty of food without looking at the dessert menu.

Went to this great spot on a Monday night. Amazing menu and food was great! It is a more casual atmosphere and is in a bar. Check it out! You won't be disappointed!

My wife and I had dinner at Embers Wood Grill for the first time. The decor is elegant, but not intimidating. Service was great. I had steak, while my wife had a pork chop. Both were excellent, prepared just the way we ordered. Sides were good. We shared a chocolate tort dessert and wine. Great evening. We will be back!

We had a farewell meal ending a visit with our son. Our meal was excellent. Our waiter whose name I believe was Joshua was wonderful, attentive and accommodating . I did not find the restaurant loud. I would definitely recommend this establishment and return .

My wife and I went here for a date night and the food was good but not for the price. Plenty of places in town that has good food for a decent price.

My wife and I found ourselves unexpectedly in Gainesville for a night and happened upon Embers Wood Grill based upon several reviews on various websites. What a pleasant surprise! Our table wasn't quite ready which was good as it gave us a chance to enjoyed their outdoor patio. Had it been warmer, outside would have been a great place to... More

We were in town for a short time and just wanted a quick bite. It the wait times were crazy at all the chain places. This place looked good and the reviews were also pointing in the right direction and they didn't have a wait. The server was very good. Not hovering over you but was there when you needed... More

This is what passion, dedication, quality people and quality materials can do. Excellent service, food and experience. By far the best steak house experience I've had in years.

After a long day in Gainesville looking at potential apartments, my son suggested we try Embers for dinner. His suggestion was outstanding as we each had a first rate dining experience. The staff were attentive and gracious, our steaks were perfect, and we felt comfortable in a restaurant that was at 90% capacity!

Thank Fusion3
