Golden Corral Buffet is fine. It's a buffett with a low price. Of course some people will have issues. The quality of the food is good. Always tastes the same no matter what GC you go to. The steaks can be hit or miss. The staff does a good job keeping up with the food on the line and they did the best they could to keep the tables flowing. My favorite dish is the bourbon street chicken. Seems they move it around all the time. Had to wait for the yeast rolls and pizza. They could put the stations in better order, i.e. baked potatoes with the steak; had a hard time finding the toppings. The desserts are tasty but presentation could be neater. At times, the staff spent more time taking with their friends who were guests than waiting on customers.

we went to the Monroeville golden corral tonight. it was very busy.the place was filthy.the plates were dirty,i kept picking one up after the other,and they either has food on the back or the fronts of the plates.it was so gross.i told a manager,and he didn't seem to care.i understand it gets busy,but dirty plates and silver ware is just nasty.you wonder what else is not being cleaned properly.another thing I wonder about,is when the servers take your plates away with their bare hands,then return with a new filled glass,when are they washing their hands after touching someones used plate.its kinda gross.people are flying at each other,acting like they are starving.food is allover the floor,and mixed in with things on the buffet. maybe sundays aren't a good day to go.oh and the bathrooms were gross as well.maybe they need more employees or something.

One good point, the servers and staff were very nice and friendly. But....If you've ever wondered what a pig feels like going to a feeding of slop, just head on over to the Country Buffet. Yuck!

The staff are always very helpful and friendly. Even though we went there on a Sunday and it was crowded, the staff was patient and helpful. The customers were very patient and friendly too. They know this is a very nice place to eat.

If you can't find something to eat here you are not trying. You must remember this is not Morton's! Sometimes you get a tasty tender steak. Sometimes(today) you can't chew the stuff. Salad bar offers loads of options. On the whole Golden Coral offers food with a variety of preparation styles from fried to roasted meats and fish.When they offer the custom seafood preparation,it includes crab cakes,shrimp,fish with a choice of sauces. The problem with this is that they have usually one grill person to serve steaks and monitor the seafood skillets. They can be overwhelmed and surly on occasion. This is never acceptable. Our servers have always been eager to please.There is always a variety of comfort foods and many dessert choices.
