We have been there twice during lunch.Before the crowd got big the staff was already having trouble keeping the trays full,this was both times. The food was tasty and the variety of drinks was plenty. I also enjoyed the deserts and ice cream. I found the crowd to be rude and hurried...pushy actually. The servers were different each time,one time... More

Been here a few times before and at another location. The food is always good and plentiful. We went on a Saturday evening for dinner and the line was out the door, but well worth it. The atmosphere is nice, staff is friendly and it's clean, unlike the other buffet I won't mention. Going back this weekend, can't wait.

Every time I visit the USA. I usually look forward to Buffet dining., especially at Old Country. I was a bit dissaponted this time. Maybe it was the fact that the first dish I tried was a bit salty so that I could not partake if it. That was a big turn off. I usually love the clam chowder. Although... More

They have switched things up and in my opinion it's not as good as it used to be. They have less options and the food is the that great.

We hadn't visited since the remodel. We came two Saturdays in a row after experiencing great customer service and a welcoming atmosphere. Our server lori was very efficient and personable. It was nice to hear that she was from the same area of New Jersey that we were from. Food was pretty good and when they were out of chocolate... More

This is one of our planned stops after driving to Harrisburg, PA from RI- generally we have a group of 6-10 people and we are ready to relax after 5 hours in the car driving. Accessibility from turnpike is easy as there are huge signs as you're driving so you can plan and easily get here. You always have to... More

I was part of a tour group of about 50 people headed to New York when our group stopped here for dinner. It's your average buffet, some items were better and more "fresh" than others. I was fixing a salad but had to ask for more lettuce to be brought out as the bowl was nearly empty. The chocolate lava... More
