This place is always pretty decent. Restrooms are usually pretty clean and staff try to keep dining area clean which is super nice. Don't need to wait long for kitchen to refill buffet selections that are low. Pricey so come on a day very empty...More

So much good food at a reasonable price. They almost have everything, even an ICEE machine! Children friendly.

This restaurant was SUPER clean! The bathrooms were spotless and smelled clean. The food services area was clean with employees wiping things down all the time. The food was typical Old Country Buffet, but it was good.

I like that they have a separate room where larger parties can gather and share a meal together. This worked out great for our family and the food was excellent!

My husband and I took our son, 2 daughters and 5 grandkids. Our table stayed dirty nobody even bothered to take any plates. The cost was way too expensive and really should include drinks in its price. The food was not good quality at all.

Took our family to Old Country Buffet in Mankato for Father's Day. Haven't been there for many years mostly because it was pretty expensive for a family. BUT, years ago, the food WAS delicious--everything, including awesome desserts. I don't know what has happened, but it...More
