Food was delicious

The fried whole fish was exceptionally good ! I have gone to others Golden Corral in the past but I have never had whole fried fish. The steak was grilled to perfection just like a good steak restaurant. The salad was kept fresh. The dessert was okay. The chef that was grilling the food did an... read more

Typical Golden Corral in a tourist town. Waitress was overworked, had several tables, but she did a very good job. They were out of rolls and took awhile to finally get some, was also out of several other foods and would be 4 - 5 minutes to get it. Still ate to much, just know going you may have to... More

Good food as expected from a Golden Corral but they were a little slow replenishing dishes on the buffet. Pretty good selection and no line when we arrived (which is rare).

I'm not a huge fan of buffets, but this was definitely a pretty good bang for your buck. We were there on a family vacation and this was the first time I've been to a Golden Corral and the first thing that stood out for me was the friendly and courteous staff. The food was pretty good being that it... More

I think it's the best food value in Destin. The buffet has something for everyone and its good. I love the fried chicken, pot roast with oinions and potatoes, whatever meats they may be cooking on the grill, all the vegetables, the salads, and large choice of deserts. I make the senior lunch from 2 to 4.

....that's what I think. Ask me the Mrs. will tell you another story. We were having a family reunion dinner and the waitress was very #accommodating and it sucks that I don't remember her name because she was #on #point #onpoint. The all were but I was ready when the staff was #onpoint. It is Golden Coral so #act #right!

I know it sounds odd to go to the beach on vacation and eat at a Golden Corral, but it was my daughter's pick so we went and we're not disappointed! The variety is the best part! Something for everyone and sugar free desserts (my husband's diabetic)! The kids love the chocolate fountain. The service was just sub-par though!

Good choice when the brood cannot agree on what they want to eat. Something for everyone. Lunch is the best deal, but dinners offer a daily special.

I couldn't get to my computer fast enough to give the public warning! I thought Clarksville, TN was bad! this restaurant was ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING! Most of the cooked vegetables were drying around the edges or under cooked. There were absolutely no, not even one, steaks being cooked. The 2 men behind the steak area were standing around making rude comments... More

Polite and friendly staff. Food was surprisingly good and fresh. For the price you will struggle to beat it in Destin. Less than $40 for a family of 4!
