This store is a franchise and not a company location. Therefore, service and quality exceed what I have experienced at company stores. The food is hot, fresh, and tasty. The servers are motivated and they deliver good service. An excellent value in the buffet category.

My dad and I go to this restaurant weekly to get good, hot, food at a great price. We grab the to-go plates and load up. I don't have to worry about dad because there are always lots of fruits and veggies to choose from each day. My dad also loves the fried fish. Count on us to keep visiting... More

Golden Corral has a buffet for every meal of the day. Good selection. I wish they would use ceramic plates not plastic.

We found ourselves in front of the Golden Corral ravenous so we decided to try it. The staff was very helpful getting us pointed in the right direction. There were a LOT of choices! Everything appeared very fresh and what we tried was good. All in all it's a great value and if we are nearby, we'll stop in again.

Had lunch with some friends there a couple months ago, and I really had to struggle to find something worth eating. Lost of "filler" foods. Even the burgers were marginal. There are better ways to spend your money than this place. Average at best. If I could, I'd give it two and a half stars.

This place has it all. Very fresh salad makings that includes fresh fruit. Everything was crisp. Steak was cooked to order and was perfect. BBQ was tasty and not dry. Meatloaf was excellent. Desserts....I liked the fresh strawberries drizzled in chocolate. Soft serve swirl was good too.

Taken here by friends on a visit to Florida. We paid $11 dollars a head which included a Pepsi that was regularly filled. There is a vast selection to choose from, some good, some not so good and some very good.......Be choosy when selecting. On a first visit it is difficult to decide so it is tempting to have a...

My family wanted to eat there, I hadn't been in there for a few years because the last couple of times it seemed to have gone downhill. On this visit, the food was not good, the service was worse. Maybe I'm missing the appeal because it was certainly crowded, but I think I'll eat elsewhere from now on.

Spur of the moment decision to eat here. Any place offering all you can eat attracts a certain clientele, and they were clearly in evidence. They offered grilled sirloin. Unfortunately, the meat was either well done and tough, or raw and tough. The raw did not look healthy. We hated to waste it, but waste it we did. They had... More
