The entire staff here is fantastic. Pleasant and engaging people. Don't go expecting the highest quality steaks, as it is a value chain, but the soup/salad/dessert bars are well above average. Even close to closing they are clean, stocked and well maintained.

GREAT food. My family ate here. Everyone had something different than the other and it was all GREAT. SHRIMO, STEAK, CLAMS, STUFFES PORK CHOPS. and the soup, salad, dessert bar rocked. Service on point. Definitely will return.

For dinner on a weekend, this Hoss was not crowded so we were quickly seated. Atmosphere is quiet and decor dated but overall, it is what we expected for a buffet bar in a little town such as Carlisle. We received very good customer service...More

Always a great meal. Usually I end up filling up at the buffet before my food comes so I end up with two meals for the price of one since I eat what I ordered for lunch the next day.

Good food at a nice price. Steaks were fantastic, open salad bar is real good. The staff was great, even with a bus load of travelers in at the same time on a Saturday night. Very well done.

Dad loved Hoss's years ago, and it's gotten better with experience! I am visiting PA again, and had to stop in when I saw the sign. I'm so glad I did. While Hoss's doesn't offer a 'food bar' like buffets, the soup, salad and dessert...More
