Writing for Allmusic, critic Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr. wrote "Good Old Boys is something of a return to form for John Hartford... [it] doesn't stack up to Hartford's classic '70s albums, but it's a fun album that will please longtime fans."[1] Kevin Oliver of Country Standard Time wrote "Hartford and his band make these new tunes sound old and lived - in, a comfortable fit for any ears."[2]
