service people sit in a booth and talk on their cell phone instead of clearing dishes from your table. Bathrooms are always dirty, utensils are dirty and look like they have not been washed.

We arrived just after they opened for the day. All stations were filled and labeled to advise what was being offered. The restaurant is very clean and open with a large seating area. There were many choices of appetizers, several soups, salads, meats, pasta and vegetables. I can't imagine anyone going away hungry. I believe it was Lori that was... More

Disappointing breakfasting. Pancakes had been in the warmer forever and were rock hard. Bacon was fatty and under cooked. Sausage was flavorless. Service was friendly and efficient. Not likely to go back anytime soon.

Good food for a buffet. Clean and super friendly waiters. Good place to go when you want food now without complaint.

Buffet style dining, employees kept the trays filled with food. Different breakfast options a plus. Friendly employees clearing dishes. Would have liked more drink options such as applejuice or grapejuice. My family never leaves hungry. Positive start too our trip.

We happened to go on an afternoon where the youth were everywhere. We saw several buses outside and suspected a group of people was inside. We wanted a buffet because we like that style of food. Getting back to the youth- They hogged the ice cream machine and the floor around the drinks looked like something or things had spilled... More

This place needs to be deep clean urgently; floor under tables is disgusting, napkin holder as well. Coffee cups are stained. I find it a bit expensive since they now charge extra for the drinks... Everybody knows that fountain soda is crazy cheap for restaurants, so why are you charging so much extra for drinks when it costs you a... More

I'm not a big fan of this type of buffet but the food here was good, hot, plentiful and we had lots of choices. The salads were great - fresh and again, lots of choices. The veggies were good, the taco bar was nice, and while I don't eat meat, it looked good. The chocolate cake in the little metal... More

OCB's are becoming more difficult to find. It has been some time since I last visited, so we had to go. It wasn't bad. Though not all were especially friendly, our waitress kept our table clear & was very nice. They kept the dishes full and we enjoyed the food. Otherwise, not much has changed over the years. Good place... More

Had been at Hershey's Chocolate World all day and was starving. Wanted something other than fast food. Entered and had to wait, and wait, and wait...
