Expensive but surprisingly good

A little expensive but the food for what it is is actually pretty good. Staff was friendly, drinks were always full, bar staff extremely helpful. Only complaint about the food was that the salad bar seemed a little lacking however, the hot bar items were diverse and plentiful.

Visited on Friday nite. Busy but not crowded. Food was great, with excellent selection. Server Karen, awesome. Checked on me several times. Chef cooked my steak to perfection. Topped it all with a piece of Carrot cake.

I love love love Golden Corral. It was slow because it was raining cats and dogs outside. The food was hot and fresh. I love having such a wide selection available. It tastes homemade and not like fast food-which is a major plus when on vacation! I would definitely eat there again.

We had 36 hungry people and this was a great choice of where to eat. The service was great and the food was wonderful. The chocolate pie was just almost as good as my homemade chocolate pie. The only bad thing is there is just too much food to choose from. Unless you have great control over the brain telling... More

Went for Breakfast. Bacon was way over cooked, some even burnt. Corned Beef Hash dry and burnt also!!!! Server was very good and took care of our needs. Carmel fountain was watery, very little flavor. Grits watery, no flavor. Sausage links were best part. Hadn't been here in eight years, won't be back!!!

I went to this place late (9 pm) and its the first time I've been there in a long time. I usually stay away from places like that because the steak is usually dry and the bread it stale. This time I was completely surprised by the food. Steak was juicy and tender, the vegetables were good and didn't taste... More

Great, hardworking staff. Food came out constantly and care was taken in the presentation/cleanliness of the buffets. The food was great, cooked to perfection.

Reasonable price, good comfort food, busy all the time. If you like buffet style food, you'll love Golden Corral. Bring your appetite, and expect to loosen your belt before leaving. Last time I went, they even had a chocolate fountain to dip your bananas, marshmallows, or strawberries. Everything you can think of, they've just about got it.

Thank Klaus P
