New American Dishes in Alexandria's Historic Downtown

One of the best burgers in Louisiana, innovative pizza and pasta dishes and some of the best "drunk food" you'll ever have - come give us a try!

What we do

Simply Good Food

The idea behind Embers was simple from day one - bring some of the flavors that owner Jennifer Atwood discovered on her travels across the country and and overseas to her native Alexandria.

In the process we were able to claim our own little corner of downtown Alexandria and bring a historic building back to life.

Innovative Pizzas

From classics like the 'all-meat' Butcher and the 'everything' Godfather to Cajun inspired varieties like the Rougaroux

Hand-crafted Burgers

A locally-sourced and blended ground beef-bacon mix makes the foundation of every single burger at Embers

Want Lighter Choices?

Seared salmon, Louisiana crawfish and shrimp are the main ingredients in many of our salad and light cuisine dishes


What they say

A great place for date night, or bring the kiddo. The food was excellent, the menu is very unique, true fusion. (Try the Bayou Wontons!) It has a cozy atmosphere and sometimes they have live music. Our server Patricia was great. She was fun and kept our drinks topped off, but also knew when to just let us be and enjoy the meal. I highly recommend checking this place out.

We used to love visiting here on our visits. The last few visits the food has been cold, inconsistent, often out of... things. My husband got the total wrong order after waiting quite some time.read more

Food is good but its too pricey for the kind they serve. They want to serve $12 glass of wine with pizza... so if you... eat pizza with your wife and have a couple of drinks, the bill is through the roof. Atmosphere is cool, sophisticated and has that fancy down town feel, but the wait staff don't match because they are very under dressed.read more
