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

1st time at this location for my party of four. There was a wait at the door and the cashier girl was lacking in both personality and people skills. 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. Things constantly... More

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.

They have lots of good food at a great price. Steak is good, nice salad bar and taco bar. Lots of good deserts. Lots of choices for everyone. We come with our friends and graze and have a good time!

The food was lukewarm at best, and the best tasting of everything I tried was the macaroni and cheese and plain canned corn. The price was decent with a 50 cent senior discount on dinner, but really not worth it with the bland entrees.

We had lunch recently at the Old Country Buffet. Service was fast. The place was clean. The buffet offerings were endless including a quite extensive salad bar, taco bar and the typical entrees seen at buffets. Soups were bland and boring. How can you serve French Onion soup in a buffet line with a straight face? Just call it onion... More

We have eaten at O.C.B. in st. Cloud, mn also. The food is of good quality and fresh. A great place to take kids because there is such a wide variety of food, they will find something they like. They wait staff could be a little faster to clear used dishes in both restaurants. They only things bad for both... More

This is probably the best Old Country Buffet in town, but the food itself is reminiscent of school cafeteria food. There is nothing particularly delicious, it's all pretty bland. The only thing I think is a great perk is that they do have dairy free sherbet which was a nice find having a child that has multiple food allergies.

It's too bad the food is so inconsistant from store to store and day to day...overall tho, one of the best values around.
