Excellent ALL THE WAY! Service great. Value great. Food great. We go because my husband says it is some of the best prime rib, even better than the expensive restaurants he as dined. The selections were so many. Salad bar, mex/tex bar, chinese bar, american bar, rolls, deserts, etc. If you don't find something here to love then you can't... More

Although under the weather, I attempted to make Golden Corral one of my first stops for a meal. The food was good. The atmosphere was pleasant. Enjoyed my time at this Golden Corral.

Have been here and found that the manager at this establishment keeps a better place to eat. He is often present and welcomes you. The food is kept fresh and and always full containers.

The 3 of us choose GC for supper. It had been a while since our last visit to this location but was a good choice this night. The buffet was clean and loaded with everything you expect from GC. Quality was average about what you expect from their buffet. Can't say anything bad about a restaurant that offers whatever a... More

Very nice variety and selection of food. No one in our party of six complained about any item they brought back to eat. Our waitress came by our table several times and took our dirty plates and asked to refill our drinks.

We like to go to Golden Corral with my grandfather sometimes -- I couldn't say they have high-quality food, but the value is great. If you're looking for a decent, inexpensive place to eat, Golden Corral might be right for you.

We had breakfast here this morning before leaving Lynchburg to head home. They have breakfast and lunch items available during breakfast. It was great! The grandkids enjoyed the chocolate fountain. I enjoyed the fresh fruit and eggs and bacon! They have a great variety of things so you will definitely find something you like to eat here.

I'm not fond of Buffets. This was a great experience the salad bar was so fresh. Hot food, vegetables, meats seasoned so well. Would highly recommend this Golden Corral I've eaten at other Golden Corral always leave so disappointed.

I don't ahve high expectations for buffets restaurants - but when traveling with little ones it's a good option so they can be fed quickly. I had the meatloaf, a couple of BBQ ribs and the pot roast and it was all very good. THe salad bar is great - and when traveling I like to have fresh vegetables. My... More
