$12.00 and all you can eat. Good choices, hot meals, normal buffet style restaurant, we were there for the bus tour special. The flooroom staff really knew how to handle the bus mob. This would have a better rating if it wasn't swamped with so many teens off the buses.

My mother and I thought it opens up at 7am, but according to the waitress at Old Country buffet, she said it opens at 7:30am. According to this, it said it opens at 8am. So..it gets me confused about time changes plus please make food HOTTER so we can enjoy ourselves. Thank you.

The food is always hot and very well cooked. The meatloaf and fried chicken is my favorite. The kids love the pizza and tacos and the desert are everyone's favorite. Thank You everyone

Service was very friendly, lots of choices although some needed to be heated a little better. Overall time spent well taking a breather from travel.

Picked 3-4 pieces of Silverware out of the bin last time there--all with food attached. In their defense, their manager came over promptly, apologized and said he'd go and check it out. Food seasoned for the elderly and needs some seasons available for people who would like a little more spice in their lives. Prices are not bad. People bring... More

Thank You so much for accommodating us ! We were visiting newly discovered family in Southeastern PA . By the time we thought about dinner it was near closing time for most sit down restaurants. My cousin said he knew of a place that might still be open. Well , even though you were getting ready to close the doors.... More

This place is horrible for the money. The buffet is really disgusting, food has no taste and the variety is less than mediocre
