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!

If you want steak,ribs,fish or everything else you can get it here. The choices are too many to name The buffet is loaded with everything you could possibly want. A little higher priced then most buffet restaurants I have been in but, it is worth it.

I didn't have a very high opinion of Golden Corral in general but was pleasantly surprised. We ate mid afternoon but everything was fresh and the area was pretty clean. There is enough variety in the fruit and salad area but the emphasis is on entrees. This reminds me of church socials were you want to try a little bit... More

After swearing I'd never eat at a GC again, I ate my own words! The GC near me in NY was noted for poor sanitation and tasteless food. After reading previous reviews for is one I thought I'd take a chance and leave if I didn't like it. I spoke with one of the senior staff who assured me everything... More

On a whim, we stopped here for lunch on a Sunday. It wasn't as busy as we'd thought it would be, which was a plus. There was plenty of room inside to accommodate a large rush, so we didn't feel like we had to sit in a crowded college dining hall. The array of foods was impressive and surprising, but... More

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
