We were referred to try this place last year and am so glad we did. Looking from the outside, or even just glancing in the window, I would not have chosen to eat here because the esthetics are not what i would call great by any means but the food is AMAZING!!!! It's a meat and three, but everything I... More

This is a buffet type setting but feels like your in your home. Food is always hot and always goods. Don't eat too much because dessert is fabulous

I heard about the Oil Lamp for quite awhile before getting the chance to go. I liked my meal but it wasn't as good as I was lead to believe. Good food but I've had just as good elsewhere.

Food is served buffet style, served by staff, and offers a large variety. Usually there are 6 meats plus vegetables, salad and dessert. Thursday and Friday nights you can get the best steak in the whole area to be served with your choice of sides. My family loves this place!

Great home cooked food cafeteria style, but you can also order from a menu. Great sweetened tea and desserts. True that they treat you like family with that southern charm! Would highly recommend.

I've eaten at the Oil Lamp Restaurant on the past two visits to Perry, Georgia. This little gem was a well kept secret, as I've visited Perry several times each year for the past eighteen years and just found out about it from friends last year. It's a simple buffet style restaurant where you go through the serving line and... More

We both hadn't eaten here in years, but from the time we walked in and we're greeted we were treated like family. They have a very wide selection of fruit, salads, meat, vegetables and deserts. My bride had meat loaf, loaded mash potatoes, cream corn and broccoli n rice. I had the cubed steak, mashed potatoes, green beans, black eye... More
