Bad salad bar

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

For a chain buffet, I like Golden Corral the best. Lots of choices, including healthy alternatives. Its always loud and busy. Good value, go hungry!

We use Golden Corral often on our travels around the United States. Its my favourite as a vegetarian, my partner is not so keen. That's women for you ! The salad choice is very good as is the vegetable selection. Not all Golden Corral's are brilliant, they vary like all restaurants, this one is about middle of the road -... More

The food was not good at all, I got the Bourbon Chicken and it was scorched, the rice was cold and undercooked. The boiled cabbage tasted scorched and burned as well. The dining area, had a musty, funky smell to it. Felt it was a waste of $13.

wow, every person in Albany had to go there after church. It was very very busy. They charged us for 1 senior and 1 adult (we are both seniors) and when I pointed this out to the cashier, she rolled her eyes.

We went here around 8 PM on a Friday night because we hadn't been here in a couple of years. The selection is big & varied, but they don't stock it well or plan for a rush at all. The grill station stayed backed up because they didn't have the foresight to go ahead & have enough steak & seafood... More
