I have been here during peak and off peak hours. I enjoy the selection. During busy times (Weekend evenings), the dessert bar could be monitored better. They are not quick enough to switch out picked over dessert selections and getting to the chocolate fountain is like trying to get a TV on black Friday at Walmart.

Thought it might be fun - we kept seeing the advertisements and hadn't been to a non-Chinese Restaurant Buffet in years. But this one was a huge disappointment from start to finish. First - despite the ads, you should plan to spend a little more than $20/person including the buffet, a soft drink and a tip (the signs remind you... More

Long waits and crowds didn't deter me way from the great food. Had time to chat with other veterans. Looking at the meal prices, I will be back for a less crowded experience. The only small downside was the server didn't have time to clear plates. Steak and shrimp were good.

This was our first time at a Golden Corral buffet and we chose to go for breakfast. I was a little apprehensive since most buffets have marginally warm food and I like mine hot. The omelets are cooked while you wait and you pick the portions of the mix ins. Steaks were cooked to order and done as requested. The... More

Delicious...staff helpful...worth the extra drive from home. Parking lot can be difficult to navigate as road is very busy, near highway.

My family and I actually travel for about an hour and a half to go to Golden Corral. The food is always good and hot and they have a nice variety. Their prime rib is done just right and you can cut it with a fork. There is something for everyone. The last time we went it it was my... More

The food was what I expected for GC, the service and staff were above what I expected. Mac and cheese was good, meatloaf was good, steak was good. The downside was that some of the customers were, simply put, gross. I'd go again if I were in the area, but wouldn't make the half hour trip just to go there.

the waitress Carly was very attentive, however, the food was okay. It was hard to construct a meal, and there were many crowded areas. cooks did not keep food supplied, such as meats. some stations only had vegetables, however, the set up was also a bit confusing for new costumers.

The food was good and fresh and they were very on top of keeping things full. The man on the steak grill was great. He listened to what you wanted and made sure you got it. The manager is a huge breath of fresh air. He is very personable. Always visible. He works with his crew. Tonight it was busy... More

The problem with buffet restaurants isn't the food or the management: It's the clientele. I strongly suggest that if you consider bringing your family to any buffet you first go to the bathroom and clean up. While you're there observe the scores of people who exit the stalls and go directly to the food trays without washing their hands. I... More
