Typical Offerings - Slightly Higher Price

For the location this particular Golden Corral seems just like any other. Many food offerings presented in nice manner without a daylong look of just sitting there, for others this was a bit of a stretch. Walking distance to the hotels nearby so this level of convenience if just passing through... read more

After visiting several Golden Corral buffets in a number of different locations and having fairly positive experiences, my expectations were high when we stopped in at the Sumter SC store for a Sunday brunch. Nothing seemed to go right - the attitude of the personnel was less than helpful, the meal changeover procedure was haphazard and poorly organized, and the... More

If you want undercooked super greasy cafeteria style cardboard food then this is for you. You'd think a place like this would at least have s decent salad bar, and if you thought that, then you'd be wrong. Nothing says healthy like deep fried bacon...

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!!!

The little lady who is always in the salad bar area is great. She washes things well its always quickly services when things run out. My group eats salad first and for dessert! the rolls are wonderful, when available, seems to never be enough out when i go up to the bakery! I have a hard time getting any steak... More
