Try the Bourbon Chicken

This was my first Golden Corral experience. The Bourbon Chicken was especially nice. And although there was a large overhead sign that said WOK, I could not find a group of Chinese dishes organized together among the many selections which is one of our favorites. The food was not especially hot... read more

I have eaten here twice and both times wasn't good. The first time I thought it may have been a bad day. Well it wasn't, the second time was just as bad. The place was not cleaned up and just looked bad for Golden Corral.

We decided to stop at this Golden Corral while traveling south on vacation. We enjoy buffet eating but it is hard to find a decent buffet and we are not too hard to please. For starters it looks smaller inside than your typical Golden Corral Buffet. They gave a packet of silverware with a fork and a knife and no... More

Food was ok but the restaurant is outdated and needs to be brought up to standard to other locations of the same name.

Standard buffet, but with the Golden Touch. Everything was really good and the price is right. They have a carving station and made to order steaks. The desserts were outstanding.

Yes, they do have a very large variety of food. But nothing has any flavor...very bland and poor quality food. The "steak" I tried was soo tough I couldn't eat it. Everything was just lukewarm and flavorless. Only thing that was good was the popcorn shrimp and broccoli and cheese soup. The dessert weren't fresh either. It looked as if... More

This restaurant deserves no stars. We have stopped by while traveling to & from our river cottage, because of the buffet style, but after the last few times, it's just not worth it. Most of the time, whatever you want on the buffet, be assured that it's not there. What's there is usually very cold, limp and tasteless. The bourbon... More
