We always visited Old country buffet in Bellingham that unfortunately closed. Somehow we learnt about Golden Corral being similar. We happened to be in the area and stopped by for lunch. Whole family was very happy with choices especially chocolate fountain was a big with the kids. Place is a diner style, we liked the atmosphere, choices were plentiful, food... More

Golden Corral need I say more! The food was great and this location was very busy when we were there and the had very helpful, friendly staff. The staff didn't seem stressed and they had enough staff to handle the volume. The food was great and never out of stock.

Our family now makes plans to eat at this restaurant whenever passing through town. We landed with a shrimp/prawn special week. They had several interesting preparations to add to the normally excellent food.

This buffet is successful because the turnover of food is high and fast so your chances of hot food is high! If you were gluten free or vegetarian you could easily manage. They have a good salad bar with a lot of ingredients to customize your salad. I like that it only has a few premade, predressed salads. They have... More

This is my one of my grandmothers favorite places to go. There is a large variety, and they do have room for large groups, but ....its just typical over sugared, over cooked , high starch foods. This location is kind of grimy , and crowded. I don't understand the line outside...really people.

A bit crowded but what would you expect for a place like this one. Plenty of hot food at a reasonable price. The wait staff were all very attentive

We had heard alot of this place by one of my co-workers and even saw a add on tv, so we thought we go try it out since we were in the neighborhood while heading to Seattle. It was just before noon when we had arrived there and it was not so busy yet. We got the senior buffet and... More

They always have great choices. I love the pot roast and bourbon chicken the best. Their rolls are delicious. My partner loves getting a lot of steak cooked right for cheap.

the Golden Corral buffet is the best bargain I've seen in decades. I thought the Super Buffet and the Old Country Buffet in Bellingham were cheap, the Golden Corral trumps the both of them hands down. Where else can you feed your face until you drop dead for under USD12?
