We were able to eat at the Golden Corral two times while we were in Orlando. We really enjoyed the food there. They have a large buffet with many choices. The service is good, the food is hot, and they have several special recipes that are developed and quite delicious. They have a chocolate fountain for dessert, which the kids just loved. They offer food for any food likes/dislikes: salad, fish, pot roast, pizza, tacos, fried rice, macaroni/cheese and a full dessert buffet.

Usually have to try Golden Corral once per vacation......just to get a reminder of how poor it is. Did it again last week, that il be enough for this year. Service as non existent, atmosphere was non existent, food was crass? What more to say.

There was not enough fruit or yoghurt. The bacon was incinerated and stuck together. You could probably use the fried eggs to bounce off walls they were so rubbery. Service rubbish. run down , tired and the plates were dirty. Go to ponderosa. Better value and edible! never again

We went here tonight and the food selection is great; lots of food to chose from and bottomless soft drinks as well.

Staff were great. Very helpful and plates cleared quickly.

Only issue, is eating off of plastic plates. Not something we are used to outside of picnics!! But if you're used to that, and dont mind the cafeteria feel, you'll love it.

We tried Golden Corral as we liked it the last time we visited, however things at this restaurant has gone downhill.
Firstly, upon entering, there was a terrible smell of sick/sewage. We almost left there and then. I queried it with the staff when we first entered but was told that they couldn't smell it however it was almost overpowering. We were hungry so we carried on. Prices for the evening buffet were $12.99 Mon-Thurs, more at weekends, adults at 10 years + for information.

On paying (which you do at the beginning), the staff appeared confused with the procedure of doing things and were not very helpful or friendly. Again, we were hungry so went with it.

The buffet however was good, a great choice with good quality foods, and steaks cooked to order, however that smell was always in the back of my mind, however it was mainly near the entrance area.The server "Betty" was very helpful and friendly, infact she was one of the best servers we had on our stay.
The restaurant though was very busy with lots of screaming kids running around, not very well supervised by their parents/guardians. This could have been a recipe for disaster with customers walking around with hot foods.
Overall, we left the GC full up, but we are likely not to return to one of their restaurants mainly due to the staff and that smell. Oh, you have to walk through yet another gift shop afterwards......
