Went on a Sunday afternoon, NOT crowded at all. Sat there for at least 10 minutes before anyone even came over to get our drink order. Then another 10 to order food. Overall wait time - about an hour to finally get a burger. The burger had absolutely no flavor and was overcooked. And if that was 1/3 pound of... More

We love Milledgeville, and each time we come back, we stop at Buffingtons. We always have a good time. The staff are friendly, and treat us like regulars, even though we've only been there a couple of times! We really enjoy it!

It's become a Milledgeville staple over the years. They have a good late-night college crowd. Earlier is more of a dinner crowd. The food is pretty good, especially for a sports bar. The hamburgers are VERY good. The Bob Marley soup is rather unique, but some days it's not as good as others... When they're "on", it's VERY good as... More

My family and I decided to try out this place for lunch on a Sunday. We got seated right away as it was not that busy. It took awhile for server to get our drinks and to take our order. I noticed there were not that many servers so I tried to be a little more patient. It took over... More

We were there for a college visit and this had been recommended for lunch. Our server was very attentive the entire time. However, seeing as how there were only two other tables, each with only two folks, I didn't see or understand why it would take 25 minutes to fix 3 sandwiches - and then to wait that long only...

Ate here the night of the Deep Roots festival. The wait was about 10 minutes at 9:50 p.m. We ordered burgers (with the egg on top) and veggie burgers with fried pickles, sweet potato fries, and beers. Excellent food and service. We had also visited the night before around 1:00 a.m. when the band was on stage. Fun atmosphere with... More

We were visiting friends on Lake Sinclair and came into town for dinner. Routine college town eatery. Sandwiches, burgers, beer and booths. The catfish filet dinner was ok. Not much flexibility on sides. Service was.....confusing.....took a while to get orders straight.....

Food is usually good in this place. But I usually go for a beer and a relaxed time. If you are lucky and arrive when one of the two good service people are working you will have a good time. Otherwise stay out of the place.

You know that every restaurant's kitchen can have a bad day and of course it's the wait staff that pays for it! Today lunch took 21/2 hours at Buffingtons! Initially crowded we watched other disgruntled customers waiting for food that didn't come and didn't come and didn't come! Okay, the appetizers came after a while, but the entrees took close...
