“Great selection and you get your monies worth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Enjoyed the selection and the food available. Confused about a senior discount since the price for Senior and Adult is the same? Even the sign lists the same price? Also my last two visits, months apart, and the Ice Cream machine is still out of Order.

Not only is the food the best but the service is great. A verry warm welcome and everyone is there to make sure your experience is the best.

“You Get A Lot For Your Money!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Anyone who loves all-you-can-eat buffets will love Golden Corral. For a very modest price, one can eat everything from salads with all the fixings, to steak on the grill, roast chicken, Southern fish, vegetables of every kind, and a bakery stuffed with some of the more creative breads to accompany the meal. There is a dessert bar that one might be tempted to visit first, or miss out on the huge selection of goodies after stuffing oneself with entrees and salads. The desserts range from puddings of every ilk, to a chocolate fountain with just about every possible dipping item waiting to be selected and consumed with relish. If you are looking for value for your money, nothing can compare to Golden Corral. As for atmosphere, forget it. The word atmosphere does not belong in the same sentence as Golden Corral. Moreover, the plates and drink glasses are plastic, which reiterates the casual atmosphere of the place.

“Great buffet and great value for price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I have been to this buffet for dinner 2 times. They have an outstanding salad/cold bar with many choices that are fresh and refilled constantly. For entrees, there are a few asian items and rice which I haven't tried, however, they looked quite inviting. Many kinds of veggies, pizza, chicken (both roasted and deep fried), steak, the pot roast rates a 10/10. Now for the deserts....warm blueberry pie, brownies, pistachio cake, vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce. These are only the deserts that I tried....sooooo good. They also had a chocolate fountain, strawberries, coconut macaroons, chocolate ice cream...that is all I can remember at this time. The wait staff are courteous and efficient at removing plates, refilling soft drinks etc. No alcohol is available. I would not go to this restaurant if you wanted a quiet, intimate setting as it is always bustling with activity and children. Will I go back? definitely. They also have a breakfast/brunch that I have been told is excellent. If I make it to the brunch I will review it again.

“This restaurant is truly what you make it to be!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

This restaurant has excellent, fresh food. You can make it out to be whatever you want. They have the freshest salad available at any buffet restaurant, they have the widest variety of vegetables and delicious entrées, but they also allow you to put cheese on everything and have a full menu of fried food. they also allow you to let your children have dessert after breakfast which is not the healthiest way to go. quite at paradox, this restaurant has the healthiest food around but is visited by the most obese people you will see in a restaurant.
