We have eaten at GC's all over Va.. Some were awful ( not clean or food bins unappealing due to other foods mixed in together) This one is the BEST -hands down. The food is excellent (frequently replaced / refreshed) the store is VERY clean and the servers, management and hostess'are all friendly and courteous. Ask for Julian, Dennae, Melanie... More

I hate buffets and rarely go, but I knew it would be quick and my family loves buffets. Right from entry we were greeted with friendly people. It was a clean buffet....a pleasant surprise. Food was pretty good. Veggies very fresh. Fried foods little heavy, but no biggie. Service at the table was awesome!! We had two servers and never... More

Great southern comfort food but at $14.99 on a Saturday thought that was a little much for fried chicken, There was a large selection of food and I'm sure some of the people in there got there money's worth, How's come the biggest people flock to these places.

Took my family and a friend here last Sunday after church. There is no doubt that there was a huge selection to choose from and the quality of the food was excellent. However, the 12.99 per person hit me (my bank account) by surprise. Personally speaking, that was a lot for the two pieces of chicken that I ate and... More

I travel frequently and eat out often, but the staff at the GC were some of the nicest I'd ever encountered. I have noticed at most of the buffet chains now - the servers are almost nonexistent - leaving you with a table of dirty plates and empty glasses. But the service here was just extraordinary. And it wasn't just... More

This was the first weekend of Golden Corral's 4-Weekend Prime Rib and Large Shrimp special, so we decided to give it a try for lunch. It was well worth the $12.99 ($11.99 for seniors)! The prime rib was cut to order and our rare cuts were succulent. I loved the horseradish sauce and my wife favored the au jus. As... More

The food is great and all, but it's usually crowded and the food becomes a mess and it's just not pleasant there during peak hours.

The food is great and an outstanding variety! Usually fairly crowded and a lot of movement and noise with people back and forth to the buffet. Probably the "best" Gloden Corral I have eaten in and there has been stveral.
