Very good

Stopped here around 11:00 am, food was hot and ready to go. Very good food, the fried ocra was the very very best. The wait staff was so nice - we had Mrs. Ruby - nice lady.

The best part of this restaurant was the pig collection that was on display. With buffets, the usual thing is a well stocked salad bar if everything else fails. At Old Times there was only one buffet bin of iceberg lettuce and several salad dressings, and a not much else to dress a tossed salad. Along the way there was... More

We eat here every year when traveling from Tn to Ormond Beach. The food is always great and they have a big selection. On Friday and Saturday after 4 they have seafood included in the buffet

I eat here at least once a week. Everything is delicious. I love the catfish and my husband enjoys the chicken and rice. I have never been disappointed!

This is really great country food in a buffet. If you're on a diet, this isn't the place to go but if you like a lot of country vegetables, fried chicken, fish and deserts such as peach cobbler, this IS the place. I was surprised that the food quality was good given it's a buffet. These usually have lower quality... More

This is a great place with great service and you need to eat slowly and pace yourself. Amazing selection of vegetables to the point that I have more vegetables for dessert rather than all of the enticing sweet treats on the dessert bar. Fried chicken is top notch and fried catfish is not far behind. Tomatoes on the salad bar... More

We visited Ole Times and the food here was excellent!!! It must have been seafood night as there was a lot of seafood on the buffet. I must say this is down home cooking. I really enjoyed our visit. Also the service was excellent!! We were a little bothered that they automatically added $5.00 to our bill but it was... More

The food here is wonderful, I am usually eating at Golden corral, but when in Valdosta, this is the place to eat. The food is always fresh, the fish is awesome and seasoned very well. The staff is very friendly and they have some of the most tastiest desserts. Make sure you visit when I Valdosta.

We stop there cause we were hungry and it was close to our hotel (Holiday Inn Express) which I rated On Tripadvisor already. The fried chicken was amazing. The owner wanted to know if I had ever had Green's before I said no. If you try them, which they are made with smoked ham hocks, put hot sauce on them.... More
