Excellent restaurant. A 'one of a kind' place with lots of ambiance, with great food, friendly staff and very reasonable prices. I highly recommend.

Overall, you cannot go wrong with Hoss' Restaurant. The restaurant was clean and offers great service, great salad / soup / dessert bar with delicious options and many choices. A nice casual place to eat!

The food was good. However, no spices and pretty much basic. But, they have no alcohol at all... That was rather disappointing, especially for us, after a long day at work...

My family and I ate there on our last night at Spring Carlisle. Decent food but the salad bar feels like it gives you value. Kids liked variety so we will be coming back. Overall good eats.

Good place to have a family gathering. Meals are moderately priced and good quality. The salad bar is big and really fresh and clean. Service is friendly and feels like you are visiting family. Recommended.

Not as many variety of soups as compared to other Hoss's. The ham and bean was their best. Fruit was very fresh. Meals were great. It was a great meal and average dining experience.

The Hoss's entry and order then be seated format has been replaced by a traditional menu. You wait longer and have more time at the salad bar. The Salad bar was fine, but the soups were questionable on my last two visits. The meals seemed to be smaller and and are comprised of poorer cuts of meat.

We love to explore when we travel some place and a busy local joint usually implies this is the place to go for good food right? Not here. Steak was so tough it literally was flying off the plate trying to cut it and while I usually never return food, both of the side dishes were sent back as being... More
