As a buffet goes, the variety is less than what I would normally expect. But they definitely made up for it the taste of the food. It looks like they worked diligently to make sure that the food was fresh and hot. It would've been nice to have more choices in the meat department – but again, what was there... More

On a business trip, I convinced a couple of co-workers to give this restaurant a try (based on my experience with other locations. What a great choice. The salad bar was filled with a variety of fresh salads. The meat selections were too numerous to describe. I did good- and avoided the dessert bar altogether, but what I saw of... More

This restaurant has real down-home country cooking. Green beans and corn, sausage, pork, mac and cheese, fried shrimp, etc. Don't expect seafood restaurant quality food though, it is more the style of "slightly salty and highly fatty" food...but yummy. With a reasonable price of around $11 or so per person, it was a great deal!

Oh, my goodness! We came here on a whim and it was the perfect place to go when you don't know what you want. Stack, fish, shrimp, pork, REAL mashed potatoes, amazing mac and cheese, green beans, collards, fruit, salad...You name it, it's there. Oh...And the desserts! Just so good. Go. Just go. You will be glad you did.

My family and I have visited the Ole Times a handful of times, and it is always delicious! The variety of food on the many buffets is vast; there's something for everyone! The restaurant is HUGE, so you can still get a bit of privacy and time with your own family in this always-bustling restaurant. The service and atmosphere are... More

The wide selection of food available at Ole Times is vast. The food is consistently delicious. They do an excellent job of keeping the buffet stocked with fresh food. The server did a good job of checking on us. No one should ever go away hungry or dissatisfied.

This buffet has EVERY food I love. The mashed potatoes are real not powdered. The cream corn is awesome. Chicken fried just like I like it. There was NOTHING I didn't like about the food.
