I have tried eating here many times through the years and unfortunately this last time was just like all the others. On the outside the place looks like you are really going to have a good country meal. As soon as you walk in your happy feeling deflates. The ambience is dark, old, and it doesn't inspire a good meal.... More

Browns is a large buffet with many items on the table. Buffet is a little over priced but with the amount of food that is on the tables it is justifiable. The ribs are meaty and tender, mash potatoes were excellent as well as other items. But there alot of fried foods on the buffet as well and the deserts... More

food good, temp. good, too many fried foods, small desert items to choose from, nice place to stop to take a break from the interstate, price is a little high for the food served on the buffet line, otherwise enjoy your meal

This restaurant has an appealing look from the highway .... it was about the right time of day and there were lots of cars (we always think more customers is a better sign than less) so we did the whole turnaround thing from the interstate and went to Brown's. We're glad we did, so we'll not be wondering the next... More

Its a buffet and seemed overpriced. Although the Fried Chicken and mashed potatoes were good. Desserts were nothing special - which was disappointing. I figured those would be the star attraction.

The quality of the food was very poor. The macaroni and cheese was gummy, abd tasted like cardboard that had a can of cheez whiz poured on it. The fried okra was greasy and drowned in salt. The red beans were way under cooked. There were no identifiable pieces of pork seasoning in any of these "Soul Food" dishes.The fried... More

This restaurant's food is good with a large buffet selection, but their prices are outrageous for buffet meal. The country shop is nice though.

You can't go wrong here especially if you have a big appetite. The advertised 100 foot buffet does not disappoint. From salads to meats, vegetables, seafood and poultry, if you can't get full it is your own fault. Great desserts also. Prices are either $8.99 or $10.99 excluding drinks depending upon when you visit.

Large buffet with a lot of variety to choose from. Food was hit and good. We loved getting to shop after eating. They have 6 oz bottles of Dr. Pepper which I can't find in my town so I buy as many as I can when we stop.
