“Great variety, great price, good+ quality,”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Very wide selection of all kinds of dishes and cuisines. The quality ranges from OK on some items to quite good on some. It's not fancy eating but it's solid tasty and you will leave satisfied. Customers don't have access to refill their own fountain drinks which I imagine is to give the servers something to justify a tip.

“Plenty of options and friendly service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

Salad bar gives you plenty of choice to make your own salad. They have both bake potatoes and sweet potatoes to choice from. They have a grill station that you can have your steak to order. Dessert station offers sugar free options as well as a good choice of cookies, cakes, and ice cream

“Mediocre at best Chain Buffet”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

This place is a chain that serves a buffet that is not good at all. It is reasonable if that is what you are lookiing for. If you want good food go some where else.

“Always a great & filling meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

I've attended a few Golden Corrals (also the Canadian sister Market Buffet & Grill) and they are all identical... Awesome!!! You can't beat the price, for about $15.00 per person for unless food & pop, plus a few bucks for a tip (since the server does keep your pop topped up and dirty plates cleared).

Everything is so fresh, and there's just so much of everything, it's easy to go overboard... I usually find it difficult walking after I'm done, not feeling like ever eating again! LOL... but that wears off the following day.
