15 of us arrived early so we could all sit together. We were told that tables of 4 could not be put together. We had to split into 5 groups. Shortly after we were seated, a group of 8 came in and our server put two tables together. I proceeded to the grill for steak, the first on was well... More

Not the cleanest or the classiest place, but for the price it's not bad at all, big breakfast buffet and good service. OK by me

We've been to this particular Golden Corral many times over the past eleven years, and have always had good food and excellent service at a very good price. Tonight we visited for for the first time this year for dinner, and had the worst experience we have ever had at this location. The food was lukewarm or cold, the service... More

My daughter and I were vacationing in Orlando and she just HAD to go to Golden Corral, since we don't have one close to home. We went TWO DAYS STRAIGHT! Food was excellent ... especially all the meat choices. I highly recommend. For the best price, go before 4pm.

The nice thing about Golden Corral is that you are assured of the basics wherever you find the restaurant and whenever you stop for a bite. The variations among the Golden Corrals tend to be driven by managers and state locations - all in all a wholesome meal at a reasonable price and this place is no exception.

Went here with a large family gathering. Works out nice, since there's plenty of seating to be had. There's something for everyone, with a large selection. Unfortunate drinks aren't included. Just remember, even though it's a buffet, please tip your waiter/waitress.

Tons of variety, well stocked and great prices. The kids loved the cotton candy and the chocolate fountain. Yum!
