Pleasant Surprise!

After a nightmarish experience at the Sevierville,TN Shoney' s buffet, we were happy to find this incredible buffet.

He was friendly, energetic, and brought extra coffee to us. The food was really good, and hot! There was plenty of different varieties of food to choose from.... More

Hi there and thank you for your feedback. We did not change any prices for Mother's Day. We offered our Sunday dinner buffet beginning at 11am for our normal price of $12.99 for adults. That is the same price that we always offer on Sundays. We do not offer lunch prices on Sundays. Our lunch price of $8.99 is available... More

I found the restaurant very crowded and a bit unorganized. Not overly friendly. Our waitress seemed nervous and out of sorts. The food was average.

The atmosphere was great and the food was excellent. There were too many choices to choose from I had a hard time deciding what to eat. Everything was top notch including our server Beverly who was very accomodating and courteous. Will highly recommend Golden Corral to all my friends and family and whoever else asks. Thank you Mrs Sharleville

Plenty of food-some not too fresh Great wait staff-eager to fill drinks. Friendly people throughout restaurant Very busy place-but that keeps the food fresher than most buffets

Far and away the best experience I have ever had at a golden corral. Our server Brian went above and beyond and made my girlfriend and I feel like regulars. Will visit anytime I'm in the smokies
