We went at lunch time and the food was fresh. Not enough healthy cooked vegetables. Unfortunately it's hard to go back to eating after a visit to their bathrooms. Smelled mildewy, peeling doors, dirty grout, and crap on the walls.

We eat at a lot of Golden Corral's for lunch being on a retiree's budget and this one was the freshest and cleanest we've been. They also kept the food trays well stocked. I didn't have to ask for chicken or cotton candy.

Food looked reheated, a skin across most of the food from sitting out.. The grill which I really went there for was cook to order everyone standing around waiting on steaks, then they were chewy and tuff. Should have ask for my money back! Awful.

We went around 11am, and it was pretty slow. Some of the food looked like it was reheated from the day before and not appetizing at all. The waitress (forgot her name of course), didn't seem to care if our cups and plates stacked up, and even seemed like I was putting her out of her way for asking her... More

Witness for yourself at the amount of unsupervised children and some adults that walk through the buffet picking things out with their hands. Too bad this place charges before seating so you have to pay in order to see the unhealthy methods of distributing food. Wish I had my phone to video the filth and post to YouTube. As you... More

The last time that I went the Golden Corral, I saw a child stick there finger in their nose then stick in in the ice cream machine. I could have been eating bugers!!!

GC has been enhancing the offerings at this chain and is worthy of the experience. The steam tables actually are keeping foods hot and the food is continually being refilled. Often some items can become a bit crusty an unappetizing but they have a handle on fresh food approach - at least at GC in Sumter

We would go here to eat yeast rolls and bbq ribs on fridays. Food is usually pretty good,the desserts where crappy in my opinion. Really busy on sundays not a good day to go unless you get there early in the day, since people get out of church and have sunday supper there.
