Good selection of food, generally tasty, but not kept hot enough. Servers were friendly, but had to search out wait-staff for coffee. Good value for the price.

Good chicken,veggies(love the creamed spinach),rolls and desserts. I wonder if Angie still works there. she always greeted us with a smile and a hug when we were there. Wait staff is nice,except for one. she did not like me and spit into my iced tea.

the staff at GC was prepared and ready for large groups. Our servers worked our party of 75 with ease while setting up for another large party. The buffet bars were clean with a nice variety of foods.

Every time my husband I visit Williamsburg we visit the Golden Corral at least once. It was just updated last year and still looks new and clean. The food is always good with choices to meet everyone's taste. We are not fans of our area GC but think the Williamsburg GC is a very good choice for a family meal.

This is a typical Golden Corral, but food was very good, restaurant was very clean, buffet line was well managed. We like the fact that wife can try "something different" and hubby can stick to his old favorites! Love the chocolate fountain!

The Golden Corral is located near the resort we stayed in. We had been at Colonial Williamsburg all day and decided to eat near our resort. We found the restaurant to be very clean. We were pleasantly surprised how good the food was. We totally enjoyed our dinner. The workers were extremely nice and attentive.

This is a better than average Golden Corral. The selections are plentiful, the food is warm and tasty, and the service is friendly and attentive. We ate here twice during our stay. Probably the most amazing part of the buffet is the dessert aisle. It has the usual icecream, cakes and cookies PLUS a while and dark chocolate fountain (also... More

Of all the Golden Corrals I've been to, we love this one! The food just seems to taste better and they have many more options than others we've been to. The Shepard's Pie, Steak, and lasagna are fantastic Great place for the family cause they kids love it!
