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.

Went to Saturday Morning Breakfast. Very Good and Large selection. Not too crowded but also in off season at the lake so a lot of locals.

On the positive, the strawberries were very good. The prepared food I tasted, (as I tried small portions of quite a few things so as return to those I enjoyed) were just lacking in flavor, and not up to the usual Golden Corral standard. This facility could really improve on a potentially good product.

Golden Corral is a great value, especially for Senior lunch that even includes a drink. The the food is always fresh. Lettuce from the salad bar is always fresh, not bagged. There is lots of varitey and food is tasty. This restaurant is always clean and friendly.

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.
