Good place, friendly service

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... read more

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

I didn't know that Golden Corral was open for breakfast, but noticed cars outside on Saturday morning. The Golden Corral in Osage Beach is open at 7:30am on Saturday and Sunday for Breakfast buffet. If you arrive before 9:00am, you get your beverages free with a senior discount. ($6.99 was our cost per person). I haven't been to a Golden... More

This corral does not have much to offer like it did when they first opened. Gone are the fresh salads, tender and rare steaks and side dishes fresh and tasty. Other corrals at other towns have become the same, a place to drive past.
