love the restaurant but the children being allowed to RUN around is not tollerable.

the food is quite good and enjoy going except for the smallness of the restaurant. very little room to move around and watch out for the children running around

The food was all hot and fresh. The salad bar was great and were very surprised at all the different choices. Fried chicken was excellent!! Loved the large selection of vegetables too. Steak was cooked perfectly to liking. Dessert bar was a bit disappointing with it being pretty depleted and it was early in the evening when we were there.... More

One of the best! You fill up here and are sorry you aren't able to try everything you wanted to try. Well, there's always next time. They have a bunch of everything - Chinese, Mexican, Italian, wings, pizza, steak, salad bar, breads and desert - OH! and the best pot roast on the planet! If you like hot fudge sundays,... More

This Corral is in desperate need of a teardown and refurbishment. The front/reception area is dilapidated and a dump for a lot of unsightly trash. The salad bar is passable. The rest of the offerings are generally overcooked. The presentation is weak. The steak area is a mess. Offering breakfast all day is a dumb idea with their menu. The... More

I am a huge fan of Golden Corral. I visited many of its locations in the south - Florida, Carolina, etc. The Golden Corral in Springfield is the only one in Massachusetts so I drive a long way to visit; I also convinced a few friends to go with me. Unfortunately, the experience was somewhat disappointing comparing with the ones... More

OK. You must know it isn't that easy running a restaurant that serves the masses. People are rude, selfish, and sloppy. Blaming the restaurant for this is what gives "buffet restaurants" a bad name. The Springfield, MA, Golden Corral does an excellent job of maintaining cleanliness and quality with a clientele including many young children and ego-centric patrons. The salad... More

Our first time to this Golden Corral location. Resto was super busy on a Sat evening. We paid $60 for a family of four and did our best to put the place out of business! This is not fine cuisine by any means but it is good food at a good price, with tons of selection. Some of our faves... More

Drove 90 miles one way for dinner. If you arrive before 4 PM it is $8.49 for dinner. After that I believe it is $11.49. I am definitely sure about the $8.49 but check their website for the rest of the prices. Everything is very good. The fried chicken is SOOOOOOOOOO good. The steak is cooked to order. Meatloaf fabulous... More

The dinners are absolutely superb at Golden Correl in Springfield. The wait time was a little bit off to me, hense why I'm rating a four star rather than a five. However, if you don't mind waiting an hour to eat, it's well worth it!
