They had an amazing Memorial Day Brunch on the actual holiday that was complete with complimentary juice and coffee. The best thing on the buffet at that point was the French Toast. With a variety of nothing but fresh fruits and dairy products, they kept people hopping and happy with multiple return trips. I don't think they can outdo themselves... More

My wife and I often visit this place for Brunch. The food choice and quality is always good but this place always has service issues. Also I have noticed that this chain nationally is a very favorite for bus groups. Last Sunday while we & other 5 families were there, a bus load of people walked in and ended up... More

After a long drive from Michigan and the sun setting we were still 100 miles from home. We saw the new Golden Corral and decided to try it. We were pleasantly surprised. The steaks were done to perfection and very tender and flavorful. The wide variety of food is overwhelming. The only sad part of the dinner was the entry... More

Food is more hit than miss. Salad bar is hard to beat. Part of me is not a fan of the new single serve dessert format (as opposed to getting your own slice of CHOK-LIT cake), but the part of me that is way too large anyway thinks it's a good idea. I do think the multi-flavered chocolate waterfall thingies... More

Every time I go to Golden Corral, I'm always greeted with a smile and friendly words. I'm in professions that are stressful, demanding, and full of particular people, so that one good, fresh meal who know me on sight as one of their regulars make it easier for me to calm down and relax. They let me pace and enjoy... More

I have never had such great service as well as great food. It was fresh and plentiful. It is definitely a great place for family and friends, as well as the price.

This place is right off the interstate and has great food. You can't go wrong with a great location and a buffet.

The Golden Corral chain has properties across the country and many people think of them as a nice place for lunch or supper. However, many do not realize they also seve breakfast, at least on weekends and some on Fridays. They may not open before sunrise but for the quality and the quantity, it's worth waiting until 7:30 AM. This... More

We rode 89 miles just to eat dinner here! For some reason I like it better than Hometown Buffet or Ryan's i think because it has better vegetarian options than the other two. The waitress was friendly. Was not to crowded on a Thursday night at 5 pm. It is right off the interstate and easy to get to. There... More
