Not as good as it used to be.

The buffet was less appealing as it used to be. Food was average. Wait staff short handed & was so busy cleaning off table's, service was slow. It was hard to get their attention,

We went there on there for our family Christmas get together. The restrooms was very unclean and very smelly. The food tasted liked it had been sitting there all day long. It makes me where I don't want to dart a Golden Carroll again, and I want not the Cleveland, TN one.

Once the new owners took over the food went down hill. It is not good anymore. The last time I went I wanted to leave instead of continuing to eat there.

Didn't really have anything that made it standout, food was just o.k. and would have rather spent the money on a nicer meal.

Should have known better; the food was not tasty and there was a stench in the north dining area. This place REALLY needs to be re-modeled or totally cleaned. Service was worse than a fast-food joint. Lunch (not dinner) buffet was too pricey, with soft drink and tip you are looking at $ 14.00 Buffet's are rarely any good anyway,... More

Once again we found our selves at the Golden Corral. I had a $1.00 off dinner coupon in the paper and they did honor it for the lunch buffet. My husband gets the senior discount and I got the dollar off. What a deal. The food is consistently fresh and good at this location. My husband always has the pot... More

I felt I overpaid at lunch for leftover food. I was disappointed that they were grilling steaks that I could not have and that would not be served for at least four hours at dinner. The salad bar was good, but the other food did not taste good. They offer a good variety as in their other locations and the... More

Dirty tables, chairs, the floor, the ceiling, the lights. A steak knife was lodged against a piece of tin to close a hole in the outside wall. I can't believe that the Health Department has not closed this place.
