Your standard Golden Corral. Can get quite busy at times, and they then struggle to keep up on the cleanliness. Food selection is pretty good and quality is pretty decent (keeping in mind this is a mass market buffet).

I have been to a number of Golden Corrals since their upgrade. I wouldn't say this was the best one, but it wasn't horrible either. There were a few items that were overcooked, a few that could have been removed sooner, but the food was pretty decent. They didn't have a chocolate fountain either, which was odd. I was put...

Can't go wrong with stopping here! Great selection of food. All very good. Their steak was very good n tender. The restaurant was clean too n very busy. We were on a bus n they gave us a separate room n waiter. The one in our home town closed years ago. Don't know why because there were always people there.

Took three of our grandkids on a Saturday night. Mediocre food, crowded, loud (they actually had a D.J. playing music with over-amped bass for Pete's sake), a surly cashier, not clean, etc. - all-in-all, an experience I won't soon forget. If you want to see the seamy underside of the Quad Cities, come here. Otherwise, stay far, far away.

This isn't a bad buffet. We enjoy it. They need to clean up the front foyer more often and their entry line area. Sometimes the tile by the meat area is slippery and needs attending to. (But we never see it attended to.) Sometimes the bathroom soap dispensers have a weird fatty looking substance gelled inside. The grilled fish for... More

I'm gonna be really clear, I've been several times in the last 3 months and it was never great, but then again I would be REALLY surprised if it were. Buffet places have to work really hard just be to good and with a selection as big as this one has that is a pretty good review. If you go... More

It has been about a year since I had ate here. The quality has gone down. The food was not fresh. You could see how old the food was. It was dried out, had the crust on top. I really wanted the roast, and every time I walked up, it had not been changed over, it was just potatoes, no... More
