Put your fears to rest

While the vast majority of reviews were positive, there were enough negative to give me pause. Common complaints were, poor service, slow service, small portions, high prices, and up fresh ingredients. We found none of these to be true. Our server had a party of sixteen to deal with and still... read more

Have not been disappointed any time we have eaten here. Good food and a lunch salad bar that rocks. The bread pudding is to die for you don't want to miss it. Keep up the good work.

This place came highly recommend and lived up to it. I had the roasted pork. It came with a salad, mashed potatoes with gravy, green bean casserole, fried apples, homemade dressing and a role. What a big meal for only $7.99. It was AWESOME!! I can't wait for my next trip to York!

Ate at the bar and had the filet. Good quality beef with a touch of blue cheese on top. Tasty steak. Cheap drinks! Nice, cozy atmosphere. Good place to stop in if you are doing business in York.

Went to dinner Sunday evening with my wife and her parents. We all had prime rib and loved it. Cooked exactly as ordered, it was tender, juicy, and extremely tasty. The regular size is 20$ and include hot bread, soup or salad, and a side. We had baked potato which was also superb. The servings are generous and sharing is... More

We went here 30 years ago as students for the Sunday buffet, and happened through York this year and stopped for dinner. The prime rib was great. It's a little like walking into history, but in a good way. All those things you recall from the past, are still the thing in York, and Chances R is one of them.... More

I had the salad and soup bar for lunch this time and was very happy with it. Many fresh toppings and friendly service. Very good food and pleasant atmosphere. Great cost for the quality of food we received. The food is consistent and if you love Prime-Rib, do the PR buffet on Saturday nights. If not... The Pan Fried Chicken... More

The food is good and the staff is helpful. We were recently part of a group that met and ate in one of the "back" areas. It was a very good experience; we were never made to feel rushed to leave.

dinner for two Excellent service throughout meal; our waiter got our drinks promptly and as he was busy with a large party he had another man (possibly a mgr) take over until he was able to take care of us later in the meal. Both men very personable and attentive to details such as carefully determining up-front if the prime-rib... More
