Food was good, hot, fresh and service was great. Thought it was a little pricy for seniors but they did have steak which my husband loves! We would definitely eat here again.

Excellent food considering the large volume of food prepared. Service mediocre. If you are very hungry you will be pleased.

After leaving Tweetsie Railroad, everyone was ready to eat. We had planned to stop at Golden Corral for lunch. Staff was very courteous and accommodating for our group of 40. Food was fresh, hot and very good. Had no problems.

What a great chain restaurant. I have never had a bad experience at a Golden Corral. Everything is prepared fresh and there is a huge array of choices. Actually I think that for the money this is the best deal going. You get unlimited amounts...More
