fish and shrimp were good

Average what it is expected to be for a Buffet. The staff was friendly, the food bars well stocked with fresh food. Good variety of food to choose from. The girl taking care of our area was attentive to when we needed our soft drinks refilled even noticing that I did not have ice in mine.

From the way the restaurant was laid out to the food I did not like this Golden Corral. All the other Golden Corral restaurants we have visited were nearly identical in the way they were built and the food they served. The food was not as good and the variety was not as plentiful as others. We will not be... More

We've eaten at Golden Corrals all over Missouri. The Osage Beach GC is one of our favorites. The food and price is pretty much the same as all the other GC's, but the staff and service is excellent ! The restaurant is always clean, the wait staff is always friendly, and the buffet is always fully stocked.

We eat at the Golden Corral most every time we come to Osage Beach, and really never get tired of it -- there's always a good variety of foods, a good salad bar, which is important to me, plenty of meats, and plenty of desserts (which is important to the grandkids). it may not be what you'd call "fine dining",...

I love the fact that you can get a wide variety of different items, including veggies, which I adore. The men at the steak station are never friendly though and the steak just is never cooked the way you ask for it. Other than this, it's decent.

We were at least 150 miles away when I noticed my purse missing. I called the restaurant, spoke to a really nice man, Roger,... More

We arrived a bit later than the dinner crowd and got great service, good food, and clean tables. The manager introduced himself to us and thanked us for coming in. We really appreciated that he took time to do it.

The cleanest, most well maintained Golden Corral I have been to in a very long time. The buffet was well stocked and everything was at the right temperature. The service was excellent.

We have been to many Golden Choral's in Missouri and Illinois. This one was average. The staff were overwhelmed by the customers.

Our waitress kept bringing the wrong drinks to us. We would remind her again only to have her bring the exact same drink back to the table. Food was ok but it cost us $10 more to eat here than any other restaurant we ate at on vacation & my husband got a margarita at another place & the bill... More
