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.

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

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!

Best place to go ☺️ Warning if you're planning to go to Golden Corral go with a big appetite . Great place very friendly staff . Very busy weekends. People from sixflags drive down for dinner . Other than that there is really no problem

Average food.. Haven't gotten sick yet.(just kidding). 😆 Pretty consistent menu, great salad bar, and lots of fish dishes. (Great if you love catfish...not!) The tables are very close together. I would suggest better spacing. Beverages not included in meal price. Self serve. Good for quick dinner with kids..

My girlfriend and I took an hour detour out of our way to New York City to have dinner at this Golden Corral. Our first time at this location. We discovered the chain while on vacations in other parts of the country and are big fans. Unfortunately, this is the closest one to where we live 200 miles away, so... More

We went here for lunch an we were very disappointed. The selection of food wasn't too good and my soup was just as was another meal. Hopefully their dinners are better.

The price of $13 each for a gut busting fill on a huge buffet was well worth it. Everything I tried was top notch. They do a fine job and should be praised for the good food. Our waitress was kinda slow but that didn't stop me.
