For the money that you spend,Golden Corral is a much better option for Breakfast or lunch than dinner. I do like that breakfast is now being offered there,but it just seems a better deal on non dinner hrs. Food was OK,waiter Ok as well..

This place is always packed which says something about the quality. If it wasn't decent people would not be coming back. Regulars say that it is never slow. I felt that the people behind the food were really overwhelmed trying to serve so many people. I give them an A for effort as that job cannot be easy. The same... More

This Golden Corral is improving.Not sure if it is management or staff,but the food is being stocked more often and keeping things filled. Food is hotter and therefore better. Good visit....

This is not just any other evening buffet. It is divided into various sections with Thai, Italian, American and other themes. Everything was fresh and well prepared. There were not that many guests, so we really wondered how they manage to offer this at such a low price?

We visited here October 1, 2016. We arrivals around 4pm and it was a Saturday. The place was packed. There were people everywhere but that's expected because of the time of day. It is like every other Golden Corral that I've been to. It has a salad bar, 3 buffet tables full of food, and a buffet table with desserts.... More

Great Breakfast Buffet. They had a good bit of everything as would be expected. Fresh baked cinnamon buns and doughnuts, the fruit was exceptional and fresh, Bacon done three ways and well as hashbrowns and hashbrown casserole, eggs custom made to your palate. There were other regulars like biscuits and gravy and breakfast pizza too. Salad bar looked great.

Steaks were salty and dry. Service was okay. Some of the vegetables also were dried out. Moderate price we have known.

After being bombarded with the commercials about the Prime Rib etc that Golden Corral is currently pushing; I talked to the wife about coming down to Hagerstown Md to give it a whirl expecting the Special items to be at the very least mediocre. Well, the regular things I get when I come here were as usual, very,very good. However,... More

Our family of four dined at the Golden Corral for the first time and we ate until we were stuffed. Attentive wait staff, clean location, and hot, delicious food...what's not to love? It's probably a good thing we don't have one in our state!
