“Stay away.”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Imagine a bad experience at a buffet restaurant and multiple it several times to arrive at our experience at Dunstan School restaurant. The food was unappealing, the atmosphere dreary and the service was inexcusable. There is very little that was appealing about our visit, except maybe the kids could fill-up on the one or two items they found palatable. Would never return or direct family and friends to this restaurant.

“Go for breakfast, not for dinner”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

The first time I went to this restaurant was in 1986, loved the place. Saw the Ben Johnson / Carl Lewis race there in 1988. I stopped going to OOB in 1990, but returned last year and this year. I still had memories of the really good food served here but I was disappointed by the dinner buffet. Loved the breakfast buffet, though.

There's plenty of food at dinner, but not much of it is really good. Lacking in flavour or spices. It's just average, but with a bigger than average price tag for similar fare.

The breakfast buffet, however, is nice. They make omelette to your liking, the coffee is strong enough, service is decent and it's all worth the 8.99$ price tag.

We will be returning for breakfast, but better can be found for dinner in the area.

“Overrated”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We went here and they were just switching over from lunch to dinner so was a bit confusing on what to eat amd trust me the gentleman in the wheelchair eyed your every move and made sure you put it back if a dinner item meanwhile while watching and stirring food the whole time,the gentlemen not very kid friendly either.Been here a few times before with no real issues other then needs a serious makeover but the food used to be good and management was not watching your every move,makes me wonder if under new managment and how long before they close their doors,and let me state that this was a sold out weekend for hotels and their were two cars in the parking lot, this place used to be packed with cars when I drove by.Lesson learned and will not recommend

“Best value for your dollar in area!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

While a buffet can be dicey at best, The Dunstan School's variety, staff, and freshness make this a great spot for any meal at any time. The variety for kids as well as adults is amazing and the freshness of the food, when combined with the choices, make this a place for multiple stops during a vacation to the area!
