Okay food and service...usual Corral fare. VERY CROWDED with too many tables crammed in. Had to protect my food from the fannies squeezing by the table.

“Fine for the occasional buffet chow down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

Youngest son requested this for his 'birthday meal'. Went at lunch time and it was an overall very good experience.

His reason for going is for the chocolate fountain. My reason for being fine with taking him is great meatloaf and 'real' mashed potatoes.

There is an ample supply of sides from which to choose. The only place that they fail is in the same place that most buffets fail.....things like fried okra are only good for a short time but as it sets it becomes soggy and moist. Deep fried items should be crispy.

Again, lots of choices and one item that I especially enjoyed was their baked beans.

Our party consisted of spouse and myself, our 3 sons, and 2 grandparents. Everyone was satisfied with their meals.

The restaurant was clean. The bathrooms were also very clean.

This is a once every 3 months or so type of place.

The food is a notch above most of these type of establishments.

“Not where you go for omelettes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

This buffet restaurant is somewhat cleaner than other Golden Corral restaurants in this area. The service is usually decent but some days they don't bother to come around to ask for drink and coffee refills or will give you regular coffee when you asked for decaf. They used to have a fairly good made-to-order cook to make omelettes and eggs the way you want them but the one there now is clueless. If you want fresh eggs instead of carton eggs she won't bother to mix the eggs but a second. She also doesn't bother to heat or cook filler ingredients like spinach. Ever had raw spinach in an omelette? Yuck. I know 12-year old kids who make better omelettes. The sirloin steak is sometimes edible but often tough and grisly. When they have ribs they aren't bad but this isn't often. There is not a great variety for people who are trying to restrict carbs (basically just meats and veggies) but if one is careful you can make out ok. This restaurant seems to cater more to the dessert crowd as the big thing is the chocolate fountain which I find very overrated. The value is not bad for breakfast but if you like a good omelette you are going to be very disappointed.
