My husband and I ate here in Pigeon Forge today. We had eaten at a Golden Corral in Branson, Mo. with a tour group and liked it so we decided to give it a try. We eat out very seldom. I am a retired dietitian/nutritionist and he is hard to please with restaurant food. And we both consider ourselves excellent... More

Like eating here, but it's always so crowded (not sure if that's good or bad). Your average run of the mill buffet food. Nothing fancy. If you've been to one Golden Corral you've been to them all. Their's is just a bit higher priced than the other GC's, guess because it's in a tourist town.

Great for kids and families with varied tastes. We had breakfast here which is my favorite meal of the day. It was great as always. Opens at 8:00 am though(which I think is a little late, but I guess it is the south). Teenage son loved the ham steak for breakfast. Sausage is spicy though for little kids.

I love to eat at any Golden Coral. But this one was lacking. The chocolate fountain was down, dirty chocolate in the bottom. The white chocolate fountain was barely running. But overall it was a nice place to eat. Pleasant staff. Food was delicious.

Ate here at the tail end of lunch. Food was OK, but ended up with food by 8:30 that night. Ruined the first day of a much needed vacation.

Although GC is self serve buffet style, the staff still brings you drink refills and checks on you often. As with all GCs, the food choices are great, the food is great and restaurant is clean. We love going to GC, if you watch your eating times, it can be very economical. Now they have added a seafood day, but... More
