A Good Place to Eat What You Like

The food was appropriately served; that is, the hot foods were served hot, not lukewarm, the salad bar provided a great variety of fresh lettuce, vegetables, fruit and other items to make a great salad.

On a road trip around the USA this was our first experience of Golden Corral . Friendly atmosphere, excellent choice, food all well-cooked and presented, beautifully clean and well turned-out premises, and of course excellent value for money. It set a bench-mark for Golden Corral,that others in the chain didn't come near, perhaps because they were in resort towns. Our... More

The manager greeted us and treated us like royalty! The variety of food was wonderful for a large family. They had many food selections on the menu. Everything was cooked to perfection. The beautiful woman serving hamburgers fresh off of the grill had a sweet voice and was singing. I asked her if they paid her more for that because... More

My complaint isn't with the food; it was typical of Golden Corral: tasty. This is why I chose it in the first place, as it's a "good bang for the buck." However, I could not handle the extreme coldness; why why why? Management has to keep in mind that there are people like myself who cannot handle freezing temps, because... More

I have been to several Golden Corral locations. I did enjoy this particular saturday because seafood was served. The food was constantly replaced, but some of it was undercooked. I think this is an easy fix. Other than that, everything was fine, staff friendly,price normal,and facilities in appropriate order.

Stopped in for some country food. Enjoyed the variety of vegetables. I sampled several meats and really enjoyed the chicken liver and onions. Can't eat liver often but love it when cooked correctly. Good food and excellent value at $10.

My wife and I stopped here for breakfast in mid December to break a rather long drive. When we arrived, we were seated promptly and found the breakfast buffet to be everything we expected. The food was all freshly prepared and hot. Our server was attentive and kept our coffee cups filled. The selection of food was great. I especially... More

The food was very good and the waiter ( Abe) was above the normal standard, making sure that we had everything we needed or wanted all the time we was there, you just couldn't ask for more even from an expensive restaurant. The food was plentiful and many choices to choose from, including the dessert. Everything was very good and... More

My husband and I went in for the Senior Early Bird special. Every thing was very good with no complaints. The food is always fresh no matter what meal you have there. Love the local Golden Corral!
