Just moved to E Moline IL from Reno NV, and family members always raved about their food. Not impressive when you walk in, but wow is the food good! Lots of choices and options, great grilled pork chops.

Sunday afternoon @1:30pm. The Golden Corral was busy. I was solo and fortunate to find a table. Did not try the salads. The meatloaf was tasty. The roast beef was somewhat dry, and the server cut a small portion. I was hungry for mashed potatoes and gravy. Could not locate any. Settled for a baked potato. Hard to mess that... More

I think this restaurant is a pretty good buffet. I would not go here for great service or great food but I felt their food was pretty good for buffet and service acceptable. The workers try hard but they are definitely short on staff.

It had been a very long time since I ate at one so I was eager to go to it. This place met my expectations for a national buffet restaurant chain. First and foremost, this place was so packed with people, so expect a wait for bigger parties. The waitress was awesome. The food was hot and fresh and they... More

I was pleasantly surprised. I expected screaming, out of control children and elbows flying at the buffet. Kids and adults were well behaved. $12.99 each on a busy Saturday night, one dollar off for plus 60, soft drinks $1.99 with free refills. Larger parties had a short wait for a table. The selection is huge; large salad bar, similar area... More

While in Davenport we decided to eat at the Golden Corral. There are plenty of food choices for the price. The employees were friendly and the server taking care of our area kept the tables cleaned off and brought refills for our water. The salads and fruits were very fresh and tasty especially the fresh cut pineapple and strawberries. There... More

It's changed over the last few years. Oh, they still try to boast however many items, but it's not what it was and they have raised prices. As far as their selection today, I don't know how many ways there can be to prepare chicken, but I swear they have found them all! Even with it being a buffet, since... More
