This is a buffet that has lots of variety. The price is a bargain for the amount and variety of food you get. Servers are friendly and constantly refilling drinks and removing used plates. Salad at the salad bar looked a little rough. (Brown) Everything else was fresh and replenished constantly... read more

Food was great as always, with the exceptions of the sesame sticks were soggy, she went to tell them to fix them. The turnips were under cooked, and unseasoned, she told them right away, also.

I would have given this location 5 stars were it not for the restroom. This location hosts one of the worst public restrooms I have seen in a long time. Toilet paper all over the floor including a large pile of it around one of the commodes. The food on the other hand is great! You're not going to find... More

Food was very good maybe because we were hungry after our travel to Pigeon Forge. Not the cleanest place but very busy. All the staff was working hard to keep up. Staff was very friendly.

I don't normally like Golden Corral, but a friend of mine and I could not decide what we wanted so we came here so that we could bot get what we wanted. Way over priced. Food was actually really good and I would go back.

This is a typical Golden Corral. The food is pretty good, lots to chose from. We went for lunch before we went to Dollywood. It was pretty clean.

This is the place when you feel like stuffing yourself. We went for breakfast. They had every kind of breakfast meat available. Omelets made to order. The key to any of these buffets is they have to be busy. If they are busy, you get fresh food. If they aren't busy, go somewhere else.
