If you like grease this place is for you. Don't get me wrong I am not a health food nut but this place delites in seeing how may ways it can serve grease to you and disguise it as food. If you must do a buffet I would suggest you go to Ryans or Golden Corral. This is the worst of the worst as far as buffets in Albany, GA are concerned.

Buffet is kept filled and clean; waitresses are friendly. This applies to the Albany, GA location.

up until today i never had a bad word about ole times of albany, however..... i went there today, and it was by far not the best experience (5-24-12) the food itself was ok but the place was terribly hot, and the waitress never came over to check on me to see if i wanted more tea or if everything was ok or anything. i am the kind that tips very gernerously for good service, bet when i get no servince at all even bad service!..... well, needless to say.....no tip for that waitress at all today. on the up side, i did get the $7.00 senior discount so i guess it wasnt a total loss

Happened to come across this place by accident, we were looking for a place to go to eat and came across this place during lunch hour and seeing that the parking lot was full we decided to give it a try and glad we did. Price per person was under $7.00 for seniors and the food was very good southern cooking. Things like the catfish, chicken tenders, meat loaf and all of the pork products were vey good all were hot and all dishes kept full. All of the workers in the place were very pleasent. If in the area again I will be sure to stop in again.

I've been to four other Ole Times Country Buffets (Brunswick, Tifton, Tallahassee and Warner Robins), and I rate them (food, service and atmosphere) four or five stars.
This was not a pleasant experience! On June 12, 2011 we visited the Albany, Ga. buffet. Once we entered the building, we noticed that the inside temperature felt very warm, which should have been a sign for us to leave. Eventually we're sweating and noticed there were no air conditioning. There were electric fans blowing throughout the restaurant including in the restrooms. There was a tempertaure gauge on the wall that read 85 degrees. The food was terrible. We sat near the buffet, and we could see they only refreshed or refilled the buffet items as we were about to leave. The food was old, hard, dry and/or discolored as if it had been sitting out for some time. The soda was like seltzer water (without syrup), so we told our server. They suppose to have added drink to the machine, and she gave us a refill. The new drink had some flavor, a little sweetness and no fizz. The atmosphere was not inviting. The carpet felt sticky against my shoes, the restroom smells of old urine and the building is in need of repairs. We tipped our server well because she did her job well. I refuse to go back. Other than the service from our server, we were and are very disappointed.
