Good food

This was our first time at Golden Corral. We always see commercials, but don't live close enough to one to try it. Since we're on vacation, we gave it a try. It was as good as I would expect a buffet to be. I had the fried chicken, which was a little bit dry, but fairly tasty. The mashed... read more

After a long day traveling we decided to stop at Golden Corral. Expected it ti be pretty much like the others since it is a chain restaurant. The server was great and kept our drinks filled and even removed our plates as soon as we were through, but the food was mediocre at best. My husband asked for a medium... More

We usually love Golden Corral. First of all, we were told that the one in PF was a member of a group of restaurants that offers a discount after you have spent over $100. The cashier knew nothing about it. The food was pretty good, almost as good as other Golden Corralls we have been to. Some of the food... More

As with any all you can eat buffet not every dish is going to be gourmet. There is so much food here you can surely please everyone! They even have a breakfast bar! Worth the money! When we went it was clean and the staff was nice. What is nice about a place like this is you can try different... More

Good place for the value, but get there when the food is freshly cooked. Like any other buffet style restaurant, the food is not as good the later you wait. I have been here with groups several times and it is a good meal for the money.

We visited the Golden Corral restaurant in Pigeon Forge, TN for dinner with our family. The price per adult is $ 13.99 and the price for children 4-8 is $ 6.99 and children age 9-12 are $ 7.99. The prices have gone up for the buffet. The food is generally good with a wide variety of items to select from.... More

Nice Variety for the price. Steaks were good. Well stocked for as busy as it was. Offer sesame stir fry with your choice of rice, pizza, breakfast items, salad, broasted or Barbeque baked chicken, tacos, baked potato bar, variety of soups, and huge selection of desserts. Among other items available. Friendly Staff. At the time that we were there the... More
