The buffet was one of the better places we hit while visiting Pigeon Forge. Our waitress Beverly made us feel so comfortable and right at home while we were there eating dinner Thursday evening. She was very attentive and just took wonderful care of our entire table. Could not have asked for better service!!

We always hit the salad bar first (with dinner plates), and it was good...a bit fewer choices than some Golden Corrals, but still adequate. Various hot veggies, entrees, and plenty of desserts available. Something for every member of your party.

My wife and I haven't eaten at Golden Corral in several years. The main reason is. The cliental are normally overweight people pigging out. Well this visit was not any different.

Twelve of us came for my birthday! We also had 2 toddlers. Beverly took great care of us. She anticipated our needs before we knew we needed them! I am local and this is my favorite place to eat. There is something about the food and the service at this particular location that makes it better than the rest.

We have eaten at Golden Corrals before but not our first choice when dining out. This golden corral should be used as example of good food, service and price. The place was not busy but not slow for sure. The choices were many, and we were surprised at the quality of the steak and served to order as well as... More
