My wife loves the bean soup that comes with the salad bar on Thursday and Saturday. Although she only gets it when they are offering a special price of $7.95 plus beverage. She also likes the Turkey sandwich on croissant bread. I like to get one of their hamburger selections, but substitute... read more

7 guests, my son's birthday. The server, Stephani, was very sweet, but ill-equipped. Waited 25 minutes for 3 beers and two glasses of wine. NO patrons in the bar! Potato cheese soup on a rainy night? Yes please! However, 5:30 on a NOT busy Saturday night, soup "labels" not correct, potato soup nearly empty, CRUSTY and lukewarm it was so... More

We ate here because it was across the street from our hotel, and we didn't want to spend a fortune. Kids eat free on Tuesdays and Saturdays, so with 2 adults sharing an entree, we got out under $20. The salad bar looked great, but seriously? $13 for a salad bar? Too much. We tried one of their new entrees,... More

I enjoy Marie Callender's every few months. The service is usually very good, and the food and value is about average. This location is right off Orangethorpe, west of Valley View.

We came for a late lunch passing through the town around 2pm. I had the salad and soup bar, which was fully stocked, which was a little surprising in the afternoon. My husband had the meatloaf sliders and a piece of pecan pie. I don't like pecan pie but he said it was pretty good. Good meal for the price... More

We went here because the hotel we were staying at was literally feet away from here. I tried their chicken pot pie and it was amazingly good. I was so full and kept eating it trying to finish the deliciousness. Their salad buffet is also good but I totally recommend the pot pie. Yum!

Wanting to get to Knott's Berry farm when they opened, I arrived in Buena Park a little early. This restaurant is literally five minutes away from the park. The food was delicious, the service about what you would expect for being the first customer of the day, and the price was reasonable. In the morning, they offer a free blueberry... More

Service was a bit slow. We had to ask for drink refills. They didn't explain there was a salad bar, nor explain any specials. Not friendly. Food a bit pricey.

We had the seasonal strawberry Waldorf salad, Monte Cristo sandwich, plus the ravioli & pie combo. All were very good, better than I expect at MC. The Monte Cristo sandwich was grilled rather than deep fried, so it's a healthier alternative. The sauce that came with the sandwiches was made of hot strawberry syrup with jalapenos, yum! I had the... More
