I pulled out 5 knives before I found one that looked reasonably clean. We paid over $30 for two buffets on a Sunday evening. The food was plentiful, but not all that good. I wish we had went to Cracker Barrel instead.

The Golden Corral has good food and excellent value for your money. But, that's where it stops.

Italian, Chinese, Mexican selections along with a fresh salad and desert bar. You can't go wrong even if you want seafood.

My wife and I decided to eat here after spending 60 to 80 dollars a night on dinner in Destin. The food was tasty and had not been sitting on the buffet for long. The place was clean and the staff was friendly. Over all the $30 for two in Destin is worth it.

Came here with grandparents on family vacation and it is so good!! Great variety of foods and their dessert buffet is one of the best I have seen!! It is really busy but the food is worth it. Prices are alright, not the best. The only problem was I might have gotten a bit sick after eating something there because... More

This is an extremely clean restaurant but the food was average Buffet food. With Sunday lunch buffet and a drink costing 18.00 per person, I was expecting a bit more.
