Food dull and running out at 6pm, service poor - the only time the waitress talked to us was to tell us we couldn't help ourselves to drinks (we then asked her to see if there was anyone who worked there who would help us - she muttered something like "Mick" or "Pick" or something, then promptly disappeared again so...

Ah, the Golden Corral! We ate there two years ago while on a Disney vacation, and it was one of the highlights of our then 8 and 4 1/2 year old grandsons. We don't have the Golden Corral where we live, so they begged us to go back. It seemed better this time. Last time, the only good thing was... More

Very expensive $34 for 2 adults & 1 child. Sandwiches at publix would've been a better deal. No healthy choices most fried and saucy lots of carbs for sure. Not even vinegar & oil at salad bar :-( Our waitress Minnie was rude. While people were serving their food she was cleaning the overheads above the food without taking care... More

Visited this restaurant in June 2014 and we always go to a Golden Corral whilst on Vacation from the UK. Food was hot and plentiful and as with all buffet restaurants caters for quantity not always quality. Steak was generously served but a little tough for my taste, though my husband loved it. They are primarily geared for family eating... More

This is an average Golden Corral. It is in a very busy area near the outlet mall, so it is hard to get in and out of.

Visited Golden Corral with family last week. After a long queue which was expected on a Saturday night , we were told to go to our table which basically meant 'go and find one' The floor was covered in food... And the carpet didnt help. All food was incorrectly labelled which would be awful for anyone with allergys. Quality of... More

Went after this was recommended - guess depends on what you want out of a restaurant. The GC gets top marks on range of selection and the quality was ok actually. The down side was the plastic plates, the bustle and the mess. Felt more like a summer camp than a dining experience. If your looking for fuel food -... More

First time in Golden Corral and will never return. Queued for 20 mins for a table then got told to find one and we ended up on a dirty table. Food all over the floor like there had been a food fight. Plates, knifes and folks were dirty and so was the kitchen. It's like a fight to get the... More

We visited the Golden Corral a few times during our trip. It has a huge selection of foods, including steak and is $9 for lunch and $13 for dinner. So cheap! The food is lovely too. Plus there is candyfloss for dessert! Our server constantly filled up our drinks and took plates away. I would definitely go back!
