I have had issues before with the look of the bar and food quality.I never learn so I decided to give it another try. I went last Sunday with an open mind and hearty appetite. I decided to give it a look before I tried...More

Overall, I do like this restaurant and have been there many times. I usually go there when I'm looking for variety and I'm not quite sure what I feel like having. They have a large selection of meats, vegetables, sea food, deserts, Italian, Mexican and...More

Weird clientele. It's like eating at a homeless shelter. It's too bad because the food is good and the price for the meal is excellent.

We have eaten at many Golden Corral restaurants across the country . This one was one of the worst . We were here on a Monday night around 8p.m. The bar looked like slop . The carpet was filthy and there were little kids unattended...More

The Golden Corral is the place to go when you are really hungry. The amount and variety of food available can be overwhelming if you don't make wise choices and pace yourself. If, like me, you are a meat lover, zero in on the steaks,...More

This is a bargain buffet restaurant with a huge selection of food choices. If you pick simple things like roast chicken you will eat well very inexpensively. Don't eat the steak. It is consistently terrible.

We chose this restaurant because I knew we could get a lot of different vegetables, which are hard to come by at some restaurants. There is a great selection of all types of food. Salad was very fresh. Love the fact that I can have...More

This was an okay buffet based on the price that we paid. For that price I expect to see fresh food out on the bar. We went on the weekend so they had steak and prime rib so that made the cost a little better....More

Room temperature, flavorless food. We were the Sunday for the breakfast buffet. We had white gravy ( no flavor ), grits (no flavor. How do you mess up grits?!), salty bacon that was only half crispy , french toast ( funky texture), hash browns (...More

As a reward for getting good grades, we took our grandson out to dinner. He chose the Golden Corral. It would not have been my first choice, but he's only 13 and naturally values quantity over quality. When we arrived we were second in line...More

The regular dinner buffet was $11.99, plus $2.19 for the drink. With a 9.25% sales tax you can expect to pay $15.49. This was not bad for an all-you-can-eat steak dinner. If you are a senior you can get $1.00 off.
