“Great salad bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We always try to make a stop at Hoss's when back in PA. The salad bar is the best thing about the whole place. Lots of great soups and great variety on the salad options. Oh, and the dessert bar.... YUM. Worth the stop.

“Fine American restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Visited Hoss's on a recommendation. You order your food as you enter, then are seated and drinks are delivered followed by your meal. The meals were very tasty, and the service excellent. JAred the waiter interacted with kids and us the ensure our meal was enjoyable.
Salad bar was impressive with a range of soups, salads and desserts. Best yet, they recommended we take some of the dessert with us for later as we weren't able to finish all of our meal.

“Mediocre at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

I haven't been to a Hoss's in probably 10 years and now I remember why. The hostess was pleasant and seated us promptly. I ordered the sirloin tips and my spouse ordered beef with mashed potatos. Portions were small and both meals were overcooked, we both ordered the meat rare, both came out medium well. I begrudgingly ate mine, my spouse sent hers back. The kitchen got my spouces beef cooked correctly on the second attempt. My meat was over seasoned. The Potato soup was so salty I couldn't eat it. Mac and cheese was bland. Macaroni salad bland, pasta salad bland, garlic bread under seasoned. That was the theme of this meal: completely overseasoned or completely flavorless.It took forever for our dishes to be cleared. Salad and desserts were good. The fresh remodeling is nice but unfortunately, I can't eat the decor. There are too many good restaurants in the area for me to waste my hard earned dough at this one.

“Good eating and well priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

You place your order before being seated. Not a huge selection but there is variety. Large salad bar with 4-5 soups. Food was hot and served quickly. Well priced for portions received.

“Great (and reasonable) place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

I frequently go to Hoss's with the kids I work with because it is a great price for great food! There is really something for everyone. This Hoss's is our favorite because the food is always fresh and the service is always great!
