I ate at this restaurant on a Monday evening and the staffing was minimal. The poor servers were going crazy trying to keep up with the customers. Restaurant was relatively clean and the food was good.

The past two times my wife and I have eaten at Hoss's, we have had the same server. The first time was terrible. During our service, she went outside 4 times to smoke. She smelled like smoke and paid no attention to our table nor her section nor the restaurant. How could it get worse. The second time she asked me if I wanted a refill on water. I did. She brought the water out, not to my table but an unoccupied table near the front, then she went outside for yet another smoke break. Finally she realized what she had done and she told us she would take our drinks off of the bill. I went to the salad bar and she proceeded to tell my wife that the service was just bad because everyone was out sick and the cooks were all sick. She told the table next to us that she knew she was a terrible server but it was the only job she could find. Needless to say we have eaten at the Carlisle Hoss's for the last time.
