Comings here it's like playing cards sometimes you win and sometimes you don't .Now if you like taking chances this is the place to take in Washington , but the prices are good for buffet.

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

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
