Hoss's most always has good food. Steaks & seafood along with a good salad bar. No hot food on the solid bar though. Fresh sliced breads, good soups, and a dessert bar as well. Located in a new location and new building that lacks any real atmosphere. We go back on a regular basis and if it wasn't good.....we wouldn't... More

While the "new and improved" Hoss's building is cleaner than the old one, the food is a total disappointment. Salmon filet tasted like a fish shingle, the baked sweet potato was saturated in butter and brown sugar (hardly a healthy option), and the salad bar was just, well, Bleh. We won't be back.

Sorry to hear about your disappointment. At Hoss's we strive to provide the best quality food and the best value in the area. On our Hoss Light menu, our sides do not automatically come with any condiments. We serve the sides plain unless you request it. We always make sure to accommodate. And our salad bar is a major focus... More

I like the Gettysburg Hoss's better. This Hoss's was just ok. The food was mediocre and the service was slow.

Always a good choice if looking for salad bar with your meal. Plenty of items on the menu from reasonable to pricey. We sometimes just get the salad bar and it is enough to eat for us.Salad bar has soups ,salads ,fruit dessert and more.

We stopped here on our way to Gettysburg. We had a steak with the buffet. The steak was good, but the highlight to us was all the great soups. I think there were 5 different choices. Everything was hot and fresh. We believed this was much better than Ryan's, Golden Corral and other similar places. Our server was very good... More

Hoss's Steak & Sea house recently relocated closer to Interstate 81. The restaurant seems to be a bit smaller than the original , but the quality of food is a good as it was. The buffet is fresh and there are nice choices.

We had takeaway one night from Hoss's. The servings were enormous. The quality was very good, and the prices were quite reasonable.

The old Hoss's restaurant was much better, better food, warm atmosphere. I ordered the burgundy steak and I'm not sure what it was. It looked like steak, even though the cut was approx. 4" x 4", and I could cut it with a fork. When I put it in my mouth, it turned to mush; I didn't have to chew... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our Chambersburg location. We are very sorry to hear that your dining experience fell below your expectations. From what you described, it fell below ours as well. Never should any items be empty on the salad bar nor should any steak turn to mush. We will pass your remarks... More

Very dull food, great place for people that don't like any spice in their food. Service was good. The salad bar is good and the desert bar was fair.
