“Not as good as I remember”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I remember liking this place on previous Albany visits. My husband did as well. Both of us felt a bit underwhelmed this past visit. The variety that I remember wasn't there. If you are looking for fried foods, this would be your place. There was baked chicken, but I've had much better elsewhere. It's no longer on our must visit list. I will say the staff was friendly and did keep tabs on our table just fine. That part is worth the visit, but not the food.

“Home cooked food”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is definitely a home cooked, small town establishment. Service is decent but the food is amazing. Food didn't appear to sit out too long and staff refilled drinks without asking.

“Not what I was expecting . . .”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

My husband and I have been to the Ole Times Country Buffet in Warner Robins so we were surprised to find that the food at this location was not appetizing and not very good. The place really needs a good cleaning and painting. I really wanted to like this place because every once in a while, my husband and I do love good country cooking.

“GREASE PIT POSTER CHILD”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

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.
