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.

I am not happy with the cleaniest. The food trays are barely filled. If im going to pay that kind of money to eat, I would like a little variety.

Selection on the buffet is ample. Quality is what you can expect from a chain buffet restaurant, I.e. not great, some better, some worse than others. Be choosy. Service was fine, but other than refilling drinks, you're on your own. We paid the senior rate of $10 plus drink, and that was fair. Always crowded with locals.

By far the biggest buffet in the area and the food was hot, fresh and delicious! The service was great, refills were provided before glasses were emptied. It was a bit pricey for a buffet but the quality of the food and service made it worth it.

The young girl who checked us in was delightful! She had a beautiful smile, pleasing personality and efficient service. That was the best thing all night. After we sat down, no waitress came to our table for almost 15 minutes!!! There was a waitress in our area cleaning tables, but didn't come to check on us for a long time!... More
