Employees sitting in the dining room putting shoes on playing on their cell phones. No hairnets or gloves worn at all by any employee, touching food. Most of the food was hard ,old, brown lettuce. Will never return!!

We enjoyed our breakfast buffet at Old Country Buffet. Everything was so tasty and cooked properly. We have a large family with different likes. All 7 of us left full and happy and ready for our day of adventure at Hershey Park. Thank you Old Country Buffet!

We found a welcoming sign on arrival. Veterans receive a discount on Mondays. Well we were there on Tuesday but the clerk gave me a discount any way. I have not been to OCB in quite some time and I was surprised.......The beef was cold so was the ham....The steak was over done and chewy....They changed the recipe for the... More

It has been a while since I ate here but I could usually count on decent food for a buffet. One of my favorite foods was their fried chicken.. always hot and moist,especially their chicken breasts. This trip...not one could be found.. not even by the Kitchen Manager who checked their hot box. The sliced beef was cold as were... More

My friend and I got to the restaurant and prepared our first plate. The food was good. However, a bus load (several, actually) of kids came and chaos ensued. I'm not sure how much of the blame goes to the management or the kids, but it was not a good experience. The staff had a hard time keeping up with... More

We were here few days back. There is plenty of food at decent price. There were a lot of senior people and crowd was ok. We will come here again.

We don't have OBF where I live, but I used to frequent this restaurant a few years ago. I was anxious for the vegetables (not commonly available in other restaurants) and was not disappointed. Beverages are no longer included in the price, and entrees are limited, but the overall quality remains good. Give it a try when you are near... More

It's been a while since the last time we were here. I was surprised to see the restaurant so dirty. Most of the napkin holders were pretty disgusting as was the rug under the tables. So I'm wondering how they keep the areas that we can't see. Diced tomatoes were rotten, the corn bread was over dry and part of... More

We were excited to eat here since they no longer have Old Country Buffet in my hometown. I was a bit surprised at how expensive it was- $50 for a family of 4. 2 drinks cost almost $6.00. The food was ok. They have a large selection and what I ate was good. My kids were less then impressed. Everything... More
