Over Crowded

The food selection is tops and well maintained and clean. Can eat as much as you want of any item. The building is too small and crowded. It is chore to make it back to your table without someone knocking your food out of your hand. Price not bad for quality and quantity.

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

I will never go back to this establishment. When I visited with my kids the place was not clean at all. I found an insect wing in my cabbage and a hair stuck to the rolls. I contacted their headquarters about these problems but never received a response.

The Price is about 32 dollars for two, but when you think about a meal for two with steak or shrimp at any other restaurant...Is about the same. The difference is that they offered everything on the menus of other restaurants at a one plate price. The management staff was very welcoming and the cooks were friendly and clean cut.... 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.
