REVIEWS OF Good Ol' Boys Family Restaurant IN Alabama

Tom Stofer

Good Ol' Boys was not all that good per this old boy. The salad bar was nice and the side items were okay. But my steak was tough and laced with gristle. The meat was also over cooked -- well done instead of medium as requested. And this has been a repeat issue at this restaurant. They either over or under cook their steaks. There were five of us dining and no one in our party was overly impressed with their meal. May have to look elsewhere for a good steak dinner.

Jason Summers

Went on a Sunday for lunch. Had to wait a while to be seated, even though there were tables available. May have been a staffing problem. Service was good. Food was good too.

Jerry Skipper

Great service, good atmosphere, wasn't impressed with the steak we got. Others in party were happy with the catfish.

Angel Barker

Everything was great... I don't remember the young lady's name... she did a great job taking care of all of her tables... this a reminder for large groups: the young lady that was serving us was also taking care of a large family ...they left a $10 tip on their table ... as they we paying for their meal... the man didn't realize that the tip was already included ... he instructed the cashier to go get the $10 back from the waitress... we were shocked that he did that but that's ok we gave her a tip to make up for his rudeness... good luck to that young lady that is going to college.

Great food, great staff, and a great location. What more could you ask!

reuben buice

It took nearly an hour and a half from the time we ordered for our food to arrive. When I spoke to the manager about it she told me that I should have gone to Taco Bell. It was a busy night and the 20 minute wait for a table was OK. The waitress was good. If they had told me it would take nearly 90 minutes to get my order I could have gone somewhere else.

Mike S

We had an amazing family gathering. The server was amazing

Patricia Hanrahan

Top sirloin was as thick as a fillet and grilled just right! Grilled asparagus were a great side option. You won't find a better steak in Auburn, and for sure not at this value. I'll be back!!!

Angie Rice

Good food and great service. Highly recommend. Great steak.

Buddy Holland

Great food great service clean you might have to wait a little bit. But it's definitely worth it .you know the food is good when the place is always full of people. Please Go it's worth it.

Mark Dupre

Great place to eat for down home southern cooking!!!

Ashley Darling

Reasonably priced for decent food

Quentin Seaborn

Good steaks. Correction. Great steaks. Quiet ambiance and excellent service. A little out of the way but worth the trip. Desserts are the best in town. Blueberry cobbler with ice cream is one of the best.

Kimberly Robinson Swindle

If you're looking for a family oriented environment with great food, look no further! Good Ol' Boys has both. Their salad bar and steaks are delicious!

Senna Simmons Barnett

Best Steak in town and our waitress Skylar was fantastic!!!

Tori Cannon

I have gone to this place since I was a baby. This is a great family place to come to. Every Tuesday night they have live music. They have a salad bar. Large menu. Kids menu. They have a fish tank. They have a waiting area and a kids play area. Really amazing people there. I would really recommend this place. It is also I nice place to come alone. Because this is a friendly place.

Lori Michaud

Love love love this restaurant! Family friendly and fabulous food!! Any steak I get is perfect!

Scott Fillmer

I would give the restaurant 3.5 stars mainly for the prices which are a little too high for the quality food. Generally they are thought of as one of the best places in Auburn but the food is good but not super great, and overall too expensive. Two people dinner and an appetizer with tip is about $40 minimum. The service is always friendly but usually takes a long time during peak hours. They are also open odd days and times so before you are going out there check the open hours.

Justin Hagler

Expensive.bathrooms nasty and steak was full of grissel


It was amazing, great food great service

Lee chapman

Great service and great food. Perfectly attentive waitress. Not too much time spent at the table but never got low on drinks. Fast service as well. Small play area with toys for the young kids and books for the ones that can read.

Elsie Doyle

Charles Kendrick

Great food

stephanie o'hara

We waited for 30 minutes to be seated then 45 minutes later still didn’t have our food. Owner was very rude. Not the way to do business.

Kayla Rivera

Great food and service at a very affordable price!


Best value steak ever! Unlimited Salad wagon plus steak include side was just $30. They probably use good meat. The grilled flavor was great and juicy as well. Slightly over cooked but acceptable. southern concept of this restaurant is well harmonized with foods.

Carl Ryberg

We went there on unicorn night Thought it would be fun to bring the niece and nephew Thought it was ridiculous to pay $5 Per child just to pet a small horse but the kids like that so I was OK with that so we decided to order dinner They told us 20 minute Wait to sit down I'm OK with that that's usually the amount of time it takes to sit down in a restaurant. Placed our order again dining Room was less than half full now hour and 10 minutes to get our meal. One thing that really grossed me out was when our waitress was taking our order and a light yellow mucous ran from her nose And just passed her bottom lip it reminded me of a yo yo when she snorted it back in and she snorted it back in Now I've got a strong stomach I didn't say anything to anybody else so I figured well I'll just orderThe nieces and nephews had chicken fingers everything was cold when it came out I ordered a steak it was terrible Golden Corral had better slices of meat But don't let me stop you from going there but I can tell you this we will never ever return


I've been coming here for a while an I love this place. Off the beaten path unique, great food at a good price.

Nathan Hyde

Wow! Great place. Maybe the best I've been to in the area since I arrived. Great food with very friendly service. I highly recommend to anyone looking for home style meals.

Kevin Smith

Absolutely great price on steaks, great cuts of steak and tons of room to enjoy a meal.

Curtis Thornton

Always great food

John Kennedy

Steak kabobs are awesome!! Try the 16 ounce Delmonico steak. You won't be disappointed.

Cameron Formica

if you are looking for high end culinary masterpieces in the auburn/opelika area , this is not the place...buuuut...if you want good down home cooking with sincere southern hospitality, look no further than good ole boys. not a varied menu, but they don't need it to be. they execute on all the things that matter. and those things are sweet tea, baked potatoes, steak, salad bar, and cobbler. they serve up beef from cattle located right in the middle of Gods country (Lee county).not pretentious. it's just the real deal.

Ken Adams

Nice place to eat. Last few times there,the Sirloin steak has been tough. Will try again.

Nathan Wohleb

Always great food

juliana Tyler

It is always awesome. This is our favorite place to go eat.

Cheryl Hurst

First time visiting. Didn't seem all that packed but had to wait 10 to 15 minutes food was excellent our waitress was kind of slow though she never came back and asked for refills on drinks

Tracey Burgess

Friendly staff & really good food!! I'm not from Auburn & really didn't know what to expect when pulling into the parking lot. My family and I almost pulled back out, but so glad we decided to try it out!! I've never been in any eating establishment where the workers were soooo nice........and the food was great!! Would have given 5 stars, but the table was a little sticky!!


Great delmonico steak!

J R Stultz

So glad to find a real steak cooked to perfection that is not on my own grill. After a 7 hour drive from home this was an awesome place for dinner. Filet was amazing and hisband and son loved the sirloin.

Lonnie Massingale

Good food and great price

Charles Brannan

Has good prices for local food. Not a great amount of variety.

Hal Cooper

Food is usually good not today we were the first to walk in first to be seated at opening but in the worst table next to the hostess station. I asked for a booth in an empty restaurant and was told she didn't know so this evening its jim and nicks. In a booth

janice dillard

Food was scrumptious and the Tuesday night music by the Highway 280 Bluegrass band was wonderful and the service was impeccable.

Judy Myers

Good Ol' Boys is a staple in Auburn. We come here every year 2 play softball and always enjoy their food and hospitality.

Roy Washburn

Great atmosphere and food. Great portions. Nice people and great for families small or large.

shawna messer

Great food

Kyle Rasco

Great prices and variety. No better steak for the money and seafood is good as well. You can't go wrong with any menu item. Service is polite and good.

W. Johnson

Decent food, but not as spectacular as local reputation suggests.

James Faircloth

Great place but just a little pricey.

LISA Potter/Briggs

Very good country food. Amazing southern service. Highly recommend if you’re in the area

Joe H

It was ok. I had the blackened cat fish. It was light and delicious. The side of green beans were a little bit bitter with garlicky onion interesting different taste. And the side of coleslaw was good.

Gary Leeds

Great atmosphere. Good service. Good food.

Mike Rogers

Food was good but our server was lacking. We had to get up 3 times to find her. If they had been busy wouldn't have minded so much but we were 1 of 4 tables in the whole place.

Vincent Paul

Food is okay but be prepared for screaming kids.

Greg James

Great steak, great service, great atmosphere, I would give it 6 stars if possible

James Fogal

Amazing food at a great price.

Murray Authement

Food was good manager was fiesty

Douglas Bendinger

Nice casual leave with good steaks!

Donald Jones

I love it

Kat W

Great shrimp! Ever one who got the whole catfish and one who got the catfish fillet thought it was good. Each plates whole catfish ranged in different sizes but everyone was okay with that. (Maybe that's usual). Hushpuppies were good, but the salad bar didn't have any good looking lettuce on it, and we were the first to go to the salad bar when they opened. I didn't understand that at all. Overall it was very good.

Joann Scarpa

Looking for something different in the Auburn area and stumbled across this jewel! There were four guests in our party. We all ordered different entrees, and two ordered dessert. This was good food, reasonably priced, with great service. We were there about 5:15 on a Thursday evening. It is well worth the short drive from the University.


Had a wonderful dining experience. Our waitress Allison was a sweet young lady with a very caring attitude. I had grilled shrimp with a lovely spiced seasoning. The hushpuppies were also tasty!

Richard Ramey

Excellent food and service!

Pauly Richards

Was worth the wait. I'll be back soon.

Thomas Pouncey

Great place to eat with friendly smiling faces. Highly recommended for great overall experience.

Tony Loe

Good steak salad bar clean and service was great and fast really great place


Great steak and price

Angela Harris

Didn't get our food. We ordered but after a hour and 15 mins we had to go. We had a large party but we had resuvations. No came to explain or to say they were sorry. No adults working only college kids.

A Redden

Excellent service every time we visit! Great food, friendly people, and a family friendly atmosphere. Prices are reasonable as well

Jim Grout

Really good cat fish with good service

Laura Henry

One of our long-time favorites, well worth the drive.

Gretta Golden

Never been before but will Definitely!!!!! be going back again. Great service, great food, and great amosphere!!! Server was awesome, food cooked perfectly, and we had no long wait even though it was Sunday. Even got to sit and enjoy the cattle roping outside....

Phillip C.

Most of the time the food is fantastic, but occasionally steaks will come out tasting a little like liver which makes me think they make not always clean the grill regularly during busy times. Overall a great place to eat though!

Lisa Baughman

Very good

ben Brown

Great food and great service

Drew Mackay

Service wasn't fast and the Mac and cheese wasn't anything special at all but the 16oz sirloin cooked medium rare was one of the best steaks I've ever had. Definitely made up for the sub par Mac and cheese and the long wait from ordering to food being delivered to the table (wait was about an hour but we were a large party). The wait staff was also super attentive and did an excellent job getting whatever we needed including keeping drinks full. Would definitely try it again.

Francis Peck

Mac and cheese wasn't good ,but everything else was excellent, service on point.


What's not to like? Catfish filets or whole. Variety of steaks. Pork chops. Yummy hush puppies. Unique salad bar wagon in country setting decor. Homemade cobbler. Great staff and service. All at unbeatable prices.

Stuart Jones

It hit or miss... The service is good but they have trouble in the kitchen some nights...

Aaron Hendrick

Great place, good prices on excellent steak. Looking forward to the next meal there

Catherine Summers

I honestly don't understand the live for this place. The food is just mediocre and we had to wait quite a while for a seat when there were plenty of tables available and wait staff just standing around doing nothing. I will not be going back.

John Bruininks

Mediocre experience with nothing special to report (basic menu, ok steaks, a bit pricey for the environment and food quality and not an especially nice environment)- another "one and done" dining experience with little motivation to return.

Ricky Thornton

Great service and delishous food from a menu with variety.

Taylor Anne

Not my first choice for Valentine’s Day dinner. My sexy man

Mark Gallagher

Shhh, don't tell anyone about this place, I don't need to show up at my favorite great restaurant and have lines out the door around the corner.

Greg Fulghum

Great food and service.

Kathy Miller

Very good food. Friendly and efficient staff.

James Ernst

Great steaks. Pretty waitress. Good company

Annette Neeley

A nice family restaurant. My husband and I brought my daughter and her fiance out to eat. We had 4 different appetizers, three of us had a steak dinner and one had a seafood platter. Including a 20% tip, our meal was $157.00 No alchohol is served but the food, price and service was very good. This was our first time here after hearing about it from friends, this is their favorite place to eat. It's a bit out of the way but it is worth it. We will definitely return in the near future.

Seth Humphrey

Local favorite. Great steaks (have 'em cook another one or not correct temp), Pork Chops, Catfish, and Shrimp. Country, casual setting. Finish the meal with cobbler and ice cream.

cathy hollon

Great food

Brian Austin

So I decided to try something new and order some food from this place and I wasn’t satisfied at all with the product, I got the seafood platter which I thought came with oysters as the online menu displayed, I checked my food when I got home because I was in a rush and look inside and there were no oysters, I also got potato wedges which look as if I had a half of baked potatoes. I called the restaurant to asked if they forgot my oysters and they told me they haven’t sold oysters for a long time so u didn’t think to update your online menu so people who may want oysters would know. On top of that none of the food had any type of season whatsoever. Only thing was good was the sweet tea but rest assure I would not be returning at all. They didn’t even offer a refund or anything, just next time I need to come grab a to go menu. UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!

Christy Arrington

This place is fun and great for families. Everytime we have been, it has not let us down. Steaks are great, service is super friendly and it is clean! Well worth stepping out of the city for this lil spot in the country. They have a great little spot for the kids to play if you have to wait for your table. We had a party of 12 and they handled us just fine!

JD Darling

Great food and service

Daniel Lounsberry

Dang good steak. Even bought a shirt! All aboard the salad wagon!


This place was stunning! When you get a booth by the window you have the chance of seeing some neighboring horses in the field. The service was outstanding, everyone very pleasant to interact with. I had the burger cooked to description with incredible taste and very juicy. My husband had the catfish and I couldn't get him to put the fork down it was so good! I only wish we lived closer to eat here again.

Mike Davenport

Tough to beat the food or the prices. Always great service as well. Worth the drive.

Chris Cupp

Great food, good prices,. Terrific atmosphere. Went on a Tuesday evening and they have a kids night with activities and live entertainment. I wish it were closer to my house.

Carol Lisenby

Good food reasonably priced great for families. Usually crowded weekend nights

Christopher Peters

Vickie Collins

This place never disappoints. The food and service is awesome

Terrell Williams

Deborah Hickok

We had a group of eight on Sunday evening and we were seated right away. Family friendly. Everyone was served within moments of each other. Everyone in our group really enjoyed their meal. Great steals at great prices.

Jeff Lewis

Steak was cooked perfect! I ordered a coke but got a sweet tea but it was good so I didn't say anything

Daniel potter

Amazing food. We loved it. Good environment and good country food.

Nicki Rivers

Delicious Catfish, friendly service. Frog legs amazing. Crispy light. Plenty of food. Very reasonable prices

CarlA Kamman

a little un organized but good food and waitress

Lip Armor

This place has been a favorite since childhood. Ive loved their food, being homemade right from the backyard. They have a fresh "salad wagon" (salad bar) and everything there is fresh, delicious, and amazing. Very comfy spacious sitting area, and great kids area at the front during long waits (never really long.) I ordered a blackened Salmon, usually get a nice steak but today I wanted to get their amazing fresh seafood. Mac n cheese side and its the creamiest ive ever had. Quite delicious. (Btw try the dessert, very rich and delicious)

Debra Dobbs

Food and service was good

Aaron Stephens

Good food, good service, good price!

Britt Welch

Good food, good friends, and good atmosphere equals a great time.

Nathan Baker

The food was very good as was portion size. Our server Madi was outstanding! Will definitely visit again.

josiewells outlaw

Great food friendly staff

Greg Hickman

Great family style service and food...

Matt Geer

Good food friendly service

Bonnie Turner

Not sure about all the others who ate there but my experience didn't match any of the good reviews. All the side dishes were clearly prepared from frozen products (except the baked potatoes) and my steak needed a chainsaw to be cut. I asked for it to be cooked medium and it arrived medium well. My husband ordered a Ribeye but we are certain they brought him a strip steak like mine. His was cooked medium not medium rare. I will say the seasoning on the steaks was good, but that's about it. The servers were super nice and the place was clean, but you had to pay extra for the salad bar if you wanted a side salad with your steak and Ruby Tuesday's has a better salad bar for sure (and RT will also cook your burger to temp - I asked about that here and received a blank look - that provided all the answer I needed). My husband & I like to find non-chain restaurants and try to support local merchants, but I just can't support this one. With all the local farm resources, I really expected better.

Shiela Jarvis

Love this place, food is always good and the staff is so friendly.

M Stevens

Okay for country type cooking. Have a decent salad bar. Their salmon was good although farm raised, would have given higher score if salmon was Alaskan.

Sin Ae Kim

I used to love this restaurant. But tonight was very very disappointing. Nectarines fro. The salad bar was bad (I am 100% sure it wasn't fresh). I told my waitress that it was bad and she didn't give me any feedback on it. Later when i looked at the salad bar, the whole container was removed. When I paid my bill to the cashier, I said one more time that the nectarines were bad and everything else was good. Once again the cashier didn't apologize nor give me any kind of feedback on it. I paid for the salad bar, didn't get what I paid for, had spoiled nectarines, and diidnt get apologized. I am just disappointed that the staff wasn't professional about handling this kind of situation. Never coming back...

Nicholas McDonald

Good food. Staff was helpful. Menu is varied but mostly focused on southern specialties. One negative is the extremely long wait time despite plenty of staff to take more tables.

John Meadows

Food not to good! Better look closely at menu . . . Your bill will be HIGHER than you thought it would be!

Michael King

Hidden Gem! Worth the drive from downtown or from anywhere in the Auburn Opelika area. 16oz sirloin is fantastic!

Beth Schiller

Had the salad bar and ate by myself as my husband waited an hour for a fish sandwich. First and last time here.☹️
