I came through with a party of 8 on a busy Saturday evening. The place was packed, but seemed to seat every single party that came through the door. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. She kept our table cleared and out cups full. The bar was was large and had something for everyone. There were items that needed... More

We come here often between 2 and 4pm. Great senior special. But it's not only the price. The food is top notch. Everything is cooked to perfection. But under the old manager it was so much better. Today, some of the salad dressings were empty, the deviled eggs were really sad, some of the salads were missing. The dessert table... More

I was very hungry and I believe I had the best scrambled eggs in a long time. I don't know how they keep such a large variety of food hot and fresh but they do. They are also very friendly and happy from the cashiers to the line cooks to the servers. I only wish I had discovered it earlier.

Buffet food not at it's best. Eat when you want a lot of food but you do not care if it's good food.

I have eaten Dinner at this restaurant on several occasions. Wait staff and cooks were always courteous and quick to please. Seniors get a substantial discount between 2-4pm including free beverage. You can't beat the selection of food for the price! Good for the whole family. This is a self-serve restaurant with wait staff providing beverage refills and table cleaning.

We ate there several times over 3 days. Each visit was a pleasure. The staff were all friendly and attentive in spite of how busy the place is. My son and nephews really enjoyed the dessert section. This was their 1st trip there so you can imagine how excited they were. looking forward to eating there again in August.

While on my last business trip to the Raleigh area I was in search of an easy, quick dinner. I saw the GC and almost did try it because others that I went to are nasty and food is other so so but this one is far from the normal. Very clean, very nice staff and outstanding and fresh food.... More

I think many parents would consider taking their children to Golden Corral especially because it is considered budget-friendly.Although, the restaurant was very crowded staff was friendly and we received great service.
