Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 March 2013

We ate at Tradition's as part of a large group to celebrate a retirement of a friend, so my comments will not be applicable to the general seating area: the restaurant is located off Rt 42 right across from the feedmill in northeastern Harrisonburg, it is very easy to find in a small plaza. Once seated our drinks were brought and we all enjoyed the buffet. Now, normally I don't like the 'dumped out of a can' style of buffet...however you can tell Tradition's does not simply dump items out of cans, they have a large area with separate salad, entree, sides, and dessert stations. All stations were well stocked and clean, servers brought replacements out very promptly, and there was a large selection of everything. Staff was friendly and smiling, our plates were cleared, maybe a little too quickly, as one server wanted to take the silverware out of a gentleman's hand...Bathrooms were clean, albeit the ladies room was freezing cold... A very nice evening all in all. The next time we are in Harrisonburg we will plan to stop there.

Off the beaten path in the north western part of Harrisonburg, tucked into a small plaza near EMU. Food is homstyle on the buffet. They offer specials for holiday meals.

I really wanted to try this place. I had tried the fried chicken in carryout and liked it. We had to beg for refills when we dined here. The food was far from fresh and this was a saturday night. Our server spent most of the time talking to a male customer while ignoring us. My biggest pet peeve is the smell of cleaning products why we are eating. I will never com here again!

The food here is good and ther is a lot of it. It is buffet style and good old home cooking. You have to pay on the way in, so be prepared for that. They also have a meeting room and to go service.

Whenever I'm in Harrisonburg for business, I take the team to Traditions. It's clean, friendly, comfortable, and has very good traditional food that suits everyone's tastes.
