Of the three buffet choices in Thurmont, this is the middle choice. If the wait is too long at the top one, this is the one to go to. They all have the same menu, and most of the items at Cozy are made from scratch.

Neither the physical plant nor the menu has stood up well to time. The meal was standard cafeteria. More worrisome is the deterioration in the physical plant. My mother used to say that how well a l restaurant maintains its bathrooms is a litmus test on what happens in the kitchen. My recommendation is to keep on going.

We were heading out of Gettysburg and were looking for a place to stop for a quick meal. We decided to give the Cozy Restaurant a try rather than stop at a fast food joint. We are glad we gave the Cozy a try! The moment we entered the restaurant we received a friendly greeting. We decided to go with the buffet but they do offer a menu as well.

The buffet was extensive. Everything was hot & fresh. The buffet stations were clean & well maintained. What I liked the most about this buffet was that many not all but many of the items were clearly homemade. Some of the items had descriptions such as "grown in our own garden". One such item was the breaded eggplant - it was so delicious! This is a place that cares about their business. They are not trying to open a bunch of cans and heat frozen food and throw it out on the heating tables and call it a buffet. They put out good quality, delicious food. Oh, and the desserts.....heavenly! We travel to Gettysburg, Pa frequently and The Cozy Restaurant is about 20 minutes outside of Gettysburg so we will be back!

For over 30 years the Cozy Restaurant has been one of the two most enjoyable buffet restaurants within a hour and a half ride of our home in Mechanicsburg PA. We try to get down at least 10 times a year. The food is varied tasty and first rate...and of course plentiful, Crisp salads, meats with taste, cheeses, breads, and scrumptious desserts. This is not for gourmets but for folks who like to eat a lot of really good food at a very modest price. Denny has done a good job of keeping the good work Willy and his wife began in to 20s going. This is the opposite of your average cookie cutter sanforized homogenized restaurants. We hope to be back many more times. (Don't eat a big lunch if you are coming here for dinner...or try for lunch when the reasonable prices are even lower.) And did I mention...the waitstaff is friendly and efficient...pleasant people to deal with throughout the establishment.

Cozy Restaurant is a local establishment that the people of Thurmont, Maryland love. The food is salty and greasy but the salad bar has some healthy choices. The wait staff was helpful and nice.
