So I wasn't sure what to expect from Hoss's because I'm normally skeptical of buffets, but I was surprised. While this is a buffet, it's more just for soup, salad, and deserts. You can purchase just the buffet or you can get a main meal and the buffet is included, it's a better deal doing that because it's only a... More

I have been to quite a few hoss's and this one was really my least favorite. Service was ok when my food came steak was hot broccoli had cold spots didn't taste steamed at all. Not my best experience and since it was my dinner companions first trip even more disappointing as his fish was for sure a frozen filet.

Hoss's has expanded the menu. You now place your orders at the table instead of when you walk in. A great change. The salad bar was above with a good variety of "stuff". Fresh and unlimited. Our meals steak and fish were average. The dessert bar was good with a variety of "homemade" items along with soft ice cream with... More

Decent food and service for a chain. Prices are mid range, a bit noisy, and fast pace. It was close to our Hotel and open on Sundays, which the hotels restaurant was not.

The best thing of this restaurant is kids 5 and under eat free. The soup and salad is very good which is what we get every time we go and it's very reasonably priced

I can't say how the steaks are, but their salad bar was surprisingly good. All the greens were fresh and crisp, their bacon dressing just sinfully good, and their bread very fresh and tasty. Service was pretty good and quick. I would go back for the salad, for sure! Please be aware, the salad bar is not a buffet with... More

The salad and dessert bars are perfect for the travelers. Main dishes ...well, they get just okay from us. My husband ordered a hamburger as rare as they would serve it - oops, burned right through. My chicken park was fair. I'd go back because of the salad bar and great service. Oh, they did comp my husband's dinner! Wonderful... More

We went to this restaurant because the salad bar was good and my husband enjoys the soups. Both of us ordered the chicken parm and salad bar was included with this meal. The pasta was done just right, sauce was tasty enough and the chicken nicely made. All the salad bar offerings were fresh and tasty,and, even the soups and... More
