Thanksgiving Buffet

This was so delicious. An added benefit to buying buffet tickets here was a reduced entrance fee to the Old Sturbridge Village. Combined, it makes a lovely Thanksgiving Day. The food at the buffet was spectacular.

They were very nice and the village is wonderful. The staff are very nice and helpful in planning, preparing and special events to include my wife and my wedding. Sunday brunches are very nice. Food is well prepared, hot, abundant, and presented well.

Our family has eaten several meals there in the past six months and enjoyed each of them. Such a wide variety for children and adults alike. I have 2 grandchildren who are picky eaters and they love the offerings. Waitstaff has always been wonderful. Looking forward to the brunch in the next week or so as, I'm sure we will... More

This is a beautiful place for a wedding. The staff were on top of all aspects of providing good service. Lots of space for guests to mingle. The hot turkey dinner was a really good choice for dinner, especially on a cold February evening.

Since the Village brought in a new chef this past summer, the variety and quality of food at the Sunday buffet, at events there, and in the Bullard Tavern, which they run, has improved. Definitely worth eating there!

Okay...Friday lunch...we ignored Tripadvisor reviews and chose to eat here for convenience,rather than venture into the town to save time. BAD CHOICE. I admit I hate to be very so negative, but this is THE Old Sturbridge Village. How could you not make a greater effort to create a more warm and inviting tavernesque atmosphere? Underwhelming and disappointing, to say... More
