An okay all you can eat

My first time at Old Country Buffet was not too bad, but nothing exceptional either. I always think that all-you-can-eat places ar a good deal, and, I guess, it was. However, there are a few things that I think they could could have done better; the rolls were too hard, probably from being left out... read more

We were on the road for the last 18 hours and looking for something else than the fastfood we got all day long. The name of the restaurant looked promising so here we are looking for the nice buffet we all expected. Surprise! Surprise! The food was over processed and fresh as a meal that have been reheated 3 times.... More

We like going to OCB but lately it seems that they have cut back on their staff. The food is not refilled in a timely manner and if you make a special request as I did that evening, it was never fulfulled. The dining room staff are overworked and never get a chance to even take a breath. The dessert... More

My family used to love going to OCB for dinner. In fact, we ate at the very first one to open on the very first day back in the early 80's. It used to be a great value for the money but that is no longer the case. Since they started charging extra for beverages, reducing options and doing pre-plated... More

We have always visited Old Country Buffet. The food is good and the prices are average. They have an awesome Sunday brunch that is just as good, if not better, than the more fancy restaurants. The only negative I have is that they now charge for beverages and their beverage charge is high. For over 30 years, beverages were always... More

We had dinner here on July 30, 2014. The selection was very good and the food was hot and fresh. The ham just melted in your mouth, the mac and cheese was moist and delicious. There was a pineapple chicken recipe that I wish I could find the recipe for. Light, sweet and very moist and delicious. Everything we tried,... More

The guy clearing tables was awesome never had a dirty dish about. The food was ok but as usual the few good things were always empty. Bathroom was very clean. The thing that upset me most was the drink upcharge made the price fifteen dollars which isn't bad but cmon just include it with the buffet.

They say in their commercial, the new Old Country Buffet is better and if you aren't happy, they'll make it right. I did the Feedback per instructed on my receipt and never even received the promised free beverage the next visit. The food was cold, dry and disappointing. Selections were sparce and it ws 12:20 PM lunchtime. I told them... More

Almost certain she overcharged us a little.... but kids were ready to get their eat on This location spotless and wonderful management. Roaming boss guy kind, attentive, very nice.

What can I say, it's a buffet. The food can tend to be a bit bland and the prices are pretty high ($9.95/person) if you take your family. That being said, there are quite a few choices in food (including Mexican and other types), so if you have people who want different things, this might be a choice for you.
