The Dunstan School Restaurant offers a decent breakfast buffet with all the normal offerings -- pancakes, french toast, eggs, breakfast meat etc... Also have salads, tacos and a cutting board for those who want to mix breakfast with lunch. Price was $8.95 per person with drinks extra. Decent place for a quick breakfast buffet to start your day.

We have eaten here quite a few times a few years ago. The food was always good and we always looked forward to our annual visit while vacationing in Old Orchard Beach. Well, what a difference a few years make. We arrived around 4:15 on a Sunday and there were maybe 5 or 6 cars in the parking lot. And... More

I've been coming here for years, normally during the lunch hours. The price for the buffet is reasonable. They have a pretty good variety of items; salad fixings, fried clams, a taco bar, and many other choices, even ones for those that are vegetarian or diabetic (the no-sugar pies aren't half bad!) When large groups come in, they do have... More

Imagine a bad experience at a buffet restaurant and multiple it several times to arrive at our experience at Dunstan School restaurant. The food was unappealing, the atmosphere dreary and the service was inexcusable. There is very little that was appealing about our visit, except maybe the kids could fill-up on the one or two items they found palatable. Would... More

The first time I went to this restaurant was in 1986, loved the place. Saw the Ben Johnson / Carl Lewis race there in 1988. I stopped going to OOB in 1990, but returned last year and this year. I still had memories of the really good food served here but I was disappointed by the dinner buffet. Loved the... More

While a buffet can be dicey at best, The Dunstan School's variety, staff, and freshness make this a great spot for any meal at any time. The variety for kids as well as adults is amazing and the freshness of the food, when combined with the choices, make this a place for multiple stops during a vacation to the area!

A large buffet all you can eat. Reasonably priced. Only thing was some food could have been hotter. Old schoolhouse that you were seated in different class rooms.

Had the breakfast buffet and it was better than any "high-end" Hotel, Resort etc, anywhere; including Vegas ! We liked it so much we went for the dinner buffet the next day where they had some of the best mashed potato's I ever had. AND for just 7 bucks more, you get a lobster too. WHAT-A-DEAL !! Dine here often,... More
