places like this get a bad rap but this one is very good. they staff keep it very clean and the food is fresh and hot with a great overall selection.

I had just gotten into town for work & my colleagues suggested this place for dinner. I had never been to a Golden Corral & didn't realize it was a buffet. I do have to say that there were A LOT of choices. So many that I couldn't decide what I wanted. The food was okay... not bad, not great.... More

Hurricane Matthew blew me to Shelby, NC...went there with a friend on Lake Moss, she enjoyed the catfish, I enjoyed the meatloaf, mashed potatoes, cornbread and bean selection (peas, green beans). Hard working staff, ample parking, clean tables, floors and serving area. Thanks for keeping everything stocked, good taste and hard work!

The breakfast buffet has a lot to offer and it is quick to eat breakfast and enjoy the meal. We have been doing this for the past 6 years and always look forward to... More

What can I say? A Golden Corral is a Golden Corral as long as it maintains company standards. The only disappointment I've ever had at the Shelby, NC Golden Corral is not finding chopped pecans on the salad bar. Been a while. My only other complaint is pretty much the same across the south: can't get many vegetables without swine.... More

This was my hubby's family reunion meal. They got lots of food and had a good time. This is average food. Nothing bad but nothing outstanding either.

16 of us arrived late evening for dinner after a softball tournament service was great food was good. They had obviously been very busy because there were a lot of dirty tables and such but they were actively cleaning them while taking care of current customers. I'm not a huge fan of buffets but that's just my preference and this... More
