We read the previous reviews with a grain of salt and so glad we did. The staff is friendly and professional and quick. We ate at the buffet for supper and it had everything we liked - - even had fried okra which we do not like. The chicken is fried to perfection and all the sides were very good.... More

Service was 2 glasses of water and not seen again until with a loud vacuum running in and about our chairs, even though... More

My husband and I stopped there to eat as a last minute decision. Boy were we glad we did! The staff is just wonderful, the fried chicken is to die for, meatloaf was good. . . And it is very reasonably priced. Great food, fantastic service, a fun evening out. Will definitely be back! Thank you Brown's!

We read Ken's review blog and decided to try Brown's Country Buffet. We enjoyed the food and the people. Clean and thoughtful establishment. Baked chicken was very good as well as the fried chicken. All food was hot and buffet always looked clean. Lots of desserts and salad bar options. Nothing fancy... just good food with nice people.

If you want Country Food at a great price this is the place. Fried chicken at its best, Country veggies, mashed potatoes, gravy, salad bar and great deserts. Thursday fried pork chops that are out of sight. Friday fried catfish, shrimp, ribs and more.

The staff was very pleasant, the decor was nothing special, and the food was good. We went for their Thanksgiving special at the recommendation of some of our family. Most if not all of the food seemed freshly prepared on site, although it was a little bland for my tastes. I could definitely see older people enjoying this for the... More
