“eat here on sunday.....NOT!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

my son and i opted to go here to eat @ 4pm sunday april 7,2013 and geez! the line was 2 miles long. we didnt even try to go inside to dine. i was warned based on the reviews i read on google, but i naturally ignored them. i read that this place has excellent food if you can get in the door without having to wait so long. so we went to applebees instead. the food was pretty decent and our waiter went above and beyond to serve us. AND it wasnt crowded at all, just steady is all. the ambiance and atmosphere made us feel comfortable plus they have 40 inch flat screens in like every corner of the place. but next time we will just stay home and eat a home-cooked sunday meal. :)

“Good Family Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The food is good with a wide variety of choices. The kids especially loved the chocolate fountain. My vegetarian daughter was able to fill her plate with a variety of healthy food.
However, we had to sit at 2 tables in order to accommodate our party of 13 since they do not have facilities for large parties.

“Great Variety of Food and Excellent Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

I have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions. The breakfast buffet has an outstanding variety of food. The waiters/waitresses are polite and very attentive. I try to sit in Ms. Kawitha's area whenever possible. She has never failed to provide my family and me with the best service possible. The only possible complaint, or suggestion, is that you get there early for breakfast. The cooks are not only cooking but also trying to keep the buffet loaded. The lines can get long if they are restocking the buffet. Golden Coral is still my favorite breakfast spot in the area!

“Average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Golden Corral offers quite a selection of foods from which to choose: a well-stocked salad bar; hot food bars with an attempt at a variety of cuisines including Mex-American, Southern, Asian, Italian, and American; a overladen dessert bar, and a bakery station. Unfortunately, it is buffet which means that most of the food is bland or mildly flavored and risk of contamination from unsanitary customers runs high. The dessert bar consist of mainly frozen cakes, pies and cookies, with the highlights being the cotton candy and the chocolate wonderfall (if you don't think about all the little kids' fingers dipping in). The steaks and baked potatoes are safe bets.
The staff are friendly and attentive.
A film of food covered many of the plates at the plate and flatware station. I had to search through several stacks before finding a couple that weren't dirty or wet. Management needs to train the dish washing staff on proper practices.
A possible choice if those in your group can't decide on a single cuisine: just double check your plates and watch for fresh food that hasn't been picked over.

“Variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Lots to choose from, always crowded, only drawback is that it needs a good deep cleaning. It kind of has a musty smell.
