Good Selection, Bad Price!

The selection of food on the buffets is very good. I especially recommend the meatloaf, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, and chicken-fried rice. They only have the chocolate Wonderfall at this location, so don't expect the other two. The service was good and prompt, the restaurant was pretty clean... read more

This place offers all sorts of food to satisfy everyone. Everything from steak to salad and everything in between. Great value at a reasonable price. Highly recommend.

We decided to go here after a day at Dollywood. We thought the variety would be good for everyone. It was decent. The food was mediocre. It wasn't anything to write home about but it fed us and we didn't leave hungry. The price was just a little high for what we ate. It was a seafood special and none... More

Went there for breakfast and experience was great from the time we walked in the door. Cashier was very friendly and had a great attitude. Food bars were stocked and constantly being replenished. Wold recommend this for breakfast any morning.

Plenty of free parking, was greeted warmly upon arrival, price was great, restaurant was very clean, and food was presented well and a great variety of different... More

I was one of the bus drivers that transported a large group to the restaurant. We had three diligent servers, Don, Ashley, and Erma. They quickly moved around the entire time. All three had smiles, and they kept things moving smoothly. Cups were refilled, empty plates quickly disappeared, all three were constantly checking to see if anyone needed anything. The... More

We're here on a Family Vacation an will not return to this Golden Corral. Our server Melissa was ok. All the food on the buffet was old. Asked when fresh food would be coming out an got no response from any of the 3 people standing there. I walked around the corner to the desert station to find something worth... More

The food was just amazing. Our server, Mrs. Beverly, was extremely nice and seemed to love what she does. She refilled our drinks without us even asking. Mrs. Beverly even took our plates out of the way just as quick as we pushed them to the side. Thank you so much for the great expierience.

We had a large group-3 buses of family's, totaling about 80 people, as we pulled in the manager came out to get an idea of how many people, welcomed us on the bus before we even got unloaded. We where sat in a reserved section-perfect for our group, by the time we where inside, we where greeted by Don, Ashely... More
