Wife and I visited this restaurant for dinner. Very few people in restaurant. Staff was very friendly when we arrived and paid. Once seated, our waitress only checked on us twice. One of our drinks was refilled once. Staff started picking up the food from the buffet before closing time. Children on two sides of us were screaming. However, the... More

For two, we paid $32 for the buffet. Although most of the food was really good, the best part was their salad bar. Everything was fresh and was very brightly colored and crisp. The waitress was very nice. We enjoyed our meal very much so. We plan to go back again soon.

Went to the Golden Coral with a group of seniors. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The service was very good - friendly and quick. The facilty was pretty worn.

Wonderful buffet experience. The selection was so great and the chef that did steaks cooked it to order. Great salad bar as well.
