Not impressed

I've been going to this restaurant for many years and have had a variety of ups & downs while eating here. I will say that the previous visits were fairly good I will say that the last 2 will be my last at this location. They raised the prices and then removed one of the serving stations to put... read more

I went to Golden Coral for dinner and the food was average at best but for two people the bill was $26.73 with just water and no tip. The staff who were cooking the steak acted like they were doing you a favor by giving you a piece of steak done to your liking. The waitress was nice and polite... More

I heard a few bad comments a while back and read a few as well. So I stayed away. But recently was told by a friend that it had improved. So we went. It was really really good. The vegetables were perfect. The barbecue chicken was outstanding. Sweet tea was just right. Our server could have been a little quicker... More

Not the best Golden Corral I've been too (Augusta, Ga) but it is passable....normally you can find something to eat but it's not always hot like it should be. The wait staff is cordial and attentive. I like to go about once or twice a month.....their weekend breakfast is pretty good....eggs to order and the standard paper thin bacon.

We were treated to the Golden Corral in Albany and WOW is all I can say! Their buffet was clean and neat and the food was delicious. Everyone found something they liked. My son really enjoyed the Breakfast Buffet! The hospitality of the ladies refilling our drinks was super nice!

Very good food. We have a group that meets there every couple of months. The food is alway good. Service is good. But whatever you do, wear something to keep you warm.

Other than the salad bar this is a typical Golden Corral. I have eaten here a dozen times or so and always have the same experience, pretty good hot food, frozen and thawed salad bar items. The breakfast buffet on Saturday is good. I would say below average GC because of the salad bar.

The food was great but the manager on duty treated me and my wife like we were criminals. The server ask us what we wanted to drink. My wife said coffee. Later the coffee was taken away because you can't get it until after the meal. The manager walked by our table three times looking at us ad if we... More

You don't expect much whenever it comes to these types of restaurants. They are buffet chains that make lower quality food, and pump it out as quickly as possible. But this one is different. Maybe its because its Albany, GA, but no. I took my son here (a 10 year old boy with endless desserts and endless chicken and pizza?... More
