my husband loves golden coral and this was definitely one of the better ones he has been to. the food was tasty, nice selection. unfortunately, the ladies room had a leak so the carpeting near the ladies room was soaking wet. I felt Kelsey could have been more attentive b/c they were not busy when we were there. Kelsey at... More

This is a typical chain buffet location filled with all sorts of people. It can be noisy at times. The staff is friendly and helpful. They also keep the place clean. The food is good, and there is a large variety.

It's always good to stop into a familiar place which supports family with good cuisine. My entire family enjoyed the comfort of relaxing and sitting in a social and pleasant environment

Overall, the restaurant was up to par with other Golden Corrals. I came in around 6:30 pm on a Tuesday and the food bar was stocked pretty well, except for the broiled fish. However, the attendant behind the grill was very attentive and immediately refilled the tray when it was brought to his attention. I also saw him assisting another... More

This Golden Corral is one of the older ones. It still offers more on the buffet than you could possible decide on. At night the steak is a sure bet, and you can choose a cut that is cooked the way you like it. Affordable, especially if you are over 60.

I visited this Golden Corral for the couple of days I was in town and on each day the food was fresh and hot. The items were different during each of my visits. The staff was very friendly and although the place was very busy, there was no line as I could get in and out with my order to... More

We have eaten here a few times. Sometimes it is good--sometimes food is not as fresh and empty dishes.Not as good on holidays or when very busy.

When you've been to one Golden Corral you've basically been to them all. I think they are expensive, but since they have added the "take a box home for $1.99" that makes it a little better. I follow a Weight Watchers eating plan so I can't eat a lot at one time. That's why I rarely go to a buffet... More

Nothing special. Just a basic Golden Corral. They do offer a 10% discount if you are staying in the hotel next door.

My wife and I visited this place for breakfast. We ordered to breakfast buffets with water, because we could get juice off the breakfast bar. The total came up to almost $20. I could not believe it was that expensive.....and they did not have steak on the bar either. The bar was composed of a bunch of pastries and bread... More
