This place is good for lunch or dinner but the price can be a little high depending on what you order. The food quality is ok, kind of what you expect at a salad bar. The staff could be more attentive to the salad bar as most people mix salad items by not being very careful when selecting items. The place could be a little better on the cleaning side. Drink prices are very high, average for this area but the waitstaff is not very attentive to refills. OK family dining.

I go to this restaurant weekly with my family of 7. We are a family that if we are paying for food, we want our food the way we ordered it. Well, apparently because we send our food back if it's not cooked right, the management decided to talk about my family behind our back and when we sent our French fries back because they weren't even fully cooked, and my meatloaf back because it had hair cooked into it, the manager made it clear that they would prefer my family not return. Apparently Hoss's doesn't care about customer satisfaction as long as they make money. I am almost certain that Mr. Campbell, the founder and CEO of Hoss's, didn't come to own so many restaurants by not caring about his customers satisfaction.

This is a good casual family place. You order your dinner when you walk in and there is a salad and desert bar. The ribeye steak is good but its the same price as if you were eating at Outback Steak House. Since it was just my husband and I, we probably wouldn't revisit because we prefer a nicer atmosphere.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Hummelstown location. Though some prices may be close to competitors, we still deliver a better value. Unlike other restaurants of similar menus, we offer all our Famous Salad Bar, Dessert, Fruit, Dairy, Home made Soups, and Fresh Baked Bread all absolutely FREE for the price you would pay at another steakhouse. This value is unmatched by any competitor.
We're glad to hear you like the Ribeye. We have many different cuts of steak and would sincerely like you to return and try any of our wonderful Premium steaks, Chicken, or Seafood entrees.
Thank you again for your review, and we hope to see you soon.

Kid friendly..low cost steak house. Unlimited Soup and salad bar is outstanding and entree menu is both inclusive and price friendly. Hoss is a chain, but locally maintained.
