A U.S. Embassy is the headquarters for U.S. Government representatives serving in a foreign country. The primary function is to be a base of diplomatic operations within that country which include many things, including services for U.S. citizens as well as visa services for in-country citizens. Generally, an ambassador is appointed by the U.S. president to lead an embassy. An embassy is normally located in the capital city of the country it's in. If you are applying for an immigrant or nonimmigrant visa, you will likely interview with a consular officer at the embassy. Some countries have what are essentially smaller branches of an embassy referred to as consulates, which are generally much smaller operations and don't perform all the operations of an embassy.
