It Is Still The Best Buffet Deal In Destin!!

My wife and I make a regular habit of going to the Golden Coral at least once a week. From 2:00 to 4:00 seniors eat for less and the drink is included. The food is always good and the service is great. There's just not a better deal in the Panhandle!!

On the Plus side, A wide variety of food. They offer senior and military discounts. The waitress,Luanne, was great. The grill cooks were accommodating for your request of doneness On the minus side they failed to freshen up the buffet. Many foods had been out for quite a while and were dry and unappealing. The waffles were dry and tasteless.... More

This chain buffet is just that and only that. It may be the best Golden Corral I have ever visited and the place is extra clean. The salad bar is best feature. It is well stocked and very fresh. Overall if you are looking for decent food at a bargain price this is is the place for you.

Have eaten at numerous Golden Corral restaurants but the Destin location was the best experienced. A little pricey but for the area and quality a reasonable choice.

Usually don't eat anything but seafood while in Destin or a steak maybe, but wanted a good salad bar and this was the place. All the food was fresh and replenished regularly. The food bar had a wonderful variety of foods from steak, chicken, fish, pizza and even breakfast food. Server was very friendly and kept our drinks filled and... More

My wife and I make it a point to eat at a Golden Corral where ever we are. The Destin location is always good. Great salad bar, chicken gumbo is awsome, fried chicken is a must have, good veggies, pot roast, carrot cake, and ice cream. Come on.........where can you get this kind of food at such a low price?... More
