For a buffet type place, it's cleaner than most, and the food is terrific. We've never been disappointed. Thursday nights the kids eat for something like $1.99. Can't beat that. They had out balloons and cotton candy, and once in a while they have activities for kids. Our kids even got to pick out a nice book one time. The... More

We went to the OCB in Saginaw MI. The crew was efficient and diligent. NOTHING was left empty, and NOTHING was OLD. If the corporate offices dont know, they should. Gen Manager LaRue came to our table and talked and made us feel welcome. Surprising for a Friday evening that they werent busier, yet the crew worked like they cared... More

Loved this place! The food was all fresh and very tasty. There was really good variety of entrees, several choices for side dishes and awesome soft dinner rolls and corn bread. We could have even had pizza or hot dogs! Beverage selection ranged from milk to pop and even frozen beverages (slurpee like) as well as coffee and tea. I... More

Old Country Buffet had declined over the years in quality and service and cost too much for its value. My family quit going there. But lately, requests by family members to "try-it-again" are on the rebound. The food is appears to be freshly prepared; there is a variety of choices; and most food tastes pretty good. The roast beef has... More

Had great time once we got there. What should have taken 4.5 hrs took 8 hrs due to winter snow storm. Roads not plowed well even 94, but have to admit Mother Nature at her best. One of the rest areas going east was horrible and we got stuck for 20 minutes trying to get out of the non-shoveled parking... More
