“Good Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is a basic buffet. The fried chicken was always fresh and delicious. Good variety of meats and salad to choose from.

One thing I noticed both times we ate at this buffet, the bars were immaculate. If something dripped or was spilled, it was cleaned immediately. Wow, what a difference this makes when eating at a buffet. Cleanliness is everything.

We were there two days and ate there twice. Good value for the money.

“Can't beat the price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

For $12 per adult, all you can eat salad bar, entrees and desserts. It was like home-cooking - plenty of choices - a good pig-out!

“Hidden Charges Make for a poor experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Attended in August of 2012. Went for dinner and was asked if we wanted beverages with our meal. We replied yes and were charged and additional $7.00 for two people. No warning and no advertising except for the $10.99 dinner price. The manager was there and When asked about it he gave the take or leave it attitude. We stayed and paid the extra money but can really say the only thing good about the meal was the chocolate milk. No one cleaned away our plates. We moved them to another table. Things were clean but food had been a round a while. Not what I remember when they were in Michigan. Not worth the effort to attend.

“A reprieve when you don't want to cook”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

My wife and I have been going to OCB for over fifteen years. Management does a pretty good job of maintaining food quality and facility cleanliness. But, there are occasional slumps as cooks and bus staff turn over. At this time - May 2012 - it's on an upswing. Recommend joining the OCB e-Club to get occasional discounts from $14.00 dinners ($13.50 for seniors).

“Best place to have a big family gathering”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Came here for my daughters birthday and we have a big family, staff was very pleasant and the food choices are great for the money.

I recommend this place and can't wait to see how the lunch and dinner menus stack up to the other buffets i have been in.
