Classic Newnan

If you're looking for a great little place to enjoy a cafeteria style lunch or dinner, be sure to stop in at Golden's. A quaint little spot for taking in a nice meal and look over the beautiful little downtown area. If you happen to drop in on a Monday, kids eat free.

I remember a time when once the pastor finished the closing prayer we raced to the car to head to Golden's to wait in the line formed outside anxious like the others to take in all that southern goodness but lately the lines have decreased as have the quality of the food. Not as good as it once was in... More

I have eaten at Golden's since I was a child. It is a cafeteria style meat and veggies kind of place. They have a great selection each day and the prices are fair. Over the last few years though, the taste of the food has declined. With each visit I notice that one of my favorite dishes has been changed.... More

DO NOT go here. To start off the food is served cafeteria style with limited options but at reasonable prices. The food was not seasoned at all and 1/3 into eating the bland food a cockroach walked across the table. i was able to kill it but my stomach turned at the same time. I went to the cashier and...

I love eating here. They are clean. The desserts are very good. The selection of food is good. Service is good. The atmosphere is good. All the tea and coffee you want just for the price of one of them. The servings are about what you would want .

This place had so much to choose from. The fried green tomatoes were the best I have ever had. And all the salads were great. Our party go the fried chicken and catfish. Very good sweet tea and deserts also! Put this on your list also.

This is good, southern cooking...comfort food. Goldens is on the square in Newnan, GA in a charming old store front with beautiful,old wood floors. The food is always good! It's one of those places I just crave every so often. All kinds of meat and vegetables...fried chicken, turkey and dressing, country fried steak, mac & cheese, greens, black eyed peas,... More

They advertise that southern living had named them one of the best meat and 3's not sure when that was but they might want to come back and remove the title. It is prepackaged frozen food warmed up and put on a bar. I had liver and onions which was covered with seasoned gravy to the point I couldn't taste... More

This is a nice small town restaurant with great Southern type food. The fried chicken is wonderful and they have the best coleslaw you will ever eat! Even though it is a serving line type restaurant, the service is always great and the staff friendly. Never had a bad meal here and have been MANY times over the years. Kids... More

It's your classic meat and three. We used to eat there a lot, when there were fewer choices in Newnan. Unfortunately, the quality and taste of the food has gone downhill in the last few years. It used to be amazing. There are better choices you can make.
