Buffet was hot and delicious! Prime rib, steak, shrimp and just about anything you would want to eat. Reasonably priced and left super stuffed!

We ate at this establishment on Father's Day and it was extremely busy - our server was prompt and friendly. The food was fresh and hot and the kitchen crew kept everything well stocked even with a very large crowd.

I have visited several Golden Coral restaurants in the past. The restaurants visited previously were just "ok". This one surprised me. The salad was fresh and green, a great variety of vegetables and the steak was tender.

This was our first time eating at this location. The food was fresh, well stocked, and yummy! The restaurant was very busy, but the staff did a fantastic job keeping up with everyone's drink orders and clearing of the tables!

Golden corral always has a great selection. Great salad bar. This location was well stocked. Seemed clean. Layout was ok. Still had some breakfast items out for lunch which is good.

The food was very good. Hot, plenty and trays kept full. The prime rib was almost perfect but bring your own horseradish. Their steaks were very tender and cooked to perfection. Even the desserts were very good. Service was top notch.

A quick meal at a fair price. A little more than the usual selection found in chain buffet restaurants, giving everyone something they like. Mine was a nice green salad (a variety of greens) topped with fish, cheeses, vegies and hand sliced bacon. Yummy desserts too!

Whether you just want to lower your cholesterol or looking for variety, Golden Corral is always adding new things to their buffet. They now have breakfast and lunch all day, so that's very accommodating. Now they have their $1.99 To-Go box with the purchase of one meal and that's even better. The staff is always friendly and fun, management knows... More
