Smelling clothes

the restaurant is an all you can eat buffet. The food is decent for an all inclusive meal, with lots of choices while not breaking your wallet. There is something for everyone. The only problem.... when you leave, your clothes smell!!!

Had dinner with friends Saturday night. No Spinach on the Salad Bar! Couldn't get a completely cooked all the way through chicken wing to save my life! Teriakyi steak was too tough to eat. Waitress "Ama" was pleasant, but non attentive. Never got a refill on the water or coffee, forgot one us had a lobster tail order. Brought the... More

...and the people/patrons. If it was not for the three nice elderly couples and a mother/daughter, who were all sitting in our area so we chatted it up, I probably would have left without eating. The place was overcrowded at 3pm on a Monday with sparse amounts of food readily available. My four year old is very picky but we... More

booked a private room for a baby shower for work co-worker, arrived and found they had no record of our request and we even called twice to confirm and I personally was there in person earlier in the day to confirm! The manager (I can't remember his name, Micky?) recovered extremely well and got an area just for us rather... More

If you've ever eaten at a Golden Corral then you probably know what to expect, but for those that don't know, its basically a buffet of dinner entres and deserts and ethnic food and on the particular day I went, steak. Wasn't expecting too much out of the steak considering its a chain buffet restaurant, but was pleasantly surprised. Everything... More

If you ever have eaten at Golden Corral, you know what to expect. We were quite pleased to learn our tour bus was stopping here for dinner. We had a pre-paid dinner so I really can't speak to the price, but the posted prices were very close to what we pay at home. This restaurant had the same kinds of... More

Very wide selection of all kinds of dishes and cuisines. The quality ranges from OK on some items to quite good on some. It's not fancy eating but it's solid tasty and you will leave satisfied. Customers don't have access to refill their own fountain drinks which I imagine is to give the servers something to justify a tip.

Salad bar gives you plenty of choice to make your own salad. They have both bake potatoes and sweet potatoes to choice from. They have a grill station that you can have your steak to order. Dessert station offers sugar free options as well as a good choice of cookies, cakes, and ice cream
