Buffetts aren't for me anymore

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... read 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

For about the same price as a fast food restaurant you get a better variety. Wait staff is always close by and friendly;

LOTS of food, reasonable prices, same as most Golden Corrals. Parking a bit tight but it's in front of a Walmart so if you don't mind a walk.... Service was above-par for a buffet style. Waitress kept drinks full. YEH!

I eat at Golden Corrals quite frequently and I was very disappointed twice at this restaurant. The 2 to 3 pieces of garlic/cheese biscuits both times were dry and almost hard. The sweet potatoes were so small there was hardly anything to eat and enjoy. The popcorn shrimp today was hard. On the side the desserts were on is where... More

I was in Washingnton on a business trip. My original review was regarding the local Hampton Inn, (which is very good) but unfortunately there are no good evening dining opportunities local so you might as well stay over in Greenville. If you were there on a beach holiday and have a couple small kids this place is fine. You can... More

This is Golden Corral is o.k.. They have a great salad bar, which we enjoyed. We got there about 6:30. Some of the pans of food had dried out and weren't being replenished. The resturant was clean though. Our waitress stopped another waitress right across from our table to tell her what all needed to be done before closing. It... More

It was ok, but for my money never again. I have seen better Golden Corrals in other cities. The food was inbetween stage where nothing fresh was out, but no one was refreshing the line with new pans of food. I guess I went at a down time.
