I only had breakfast there but I have to say that the options are good and well done. It is a very cheap buffet for the food they offer. Not the best coffee and I would add better fruit but other than that I was very satisfied with the breakfast

My boys and I are picky by no means. The prime rib had no flavor and was very dry. Went to try another piece after they brought out a new one and the same thing. We then tried the sirloin and it was so bad. Could barely chew it. It was the worst cut of meat. The red potatoes were... More

It is a good place to get decent food at a decent price. It was a little crowded but they kept the food fresh and hot. Steaks and prime rib were good. If you are looking for a variety of food at a decent price, this is a decent stop

Don't waste your time, energy or health insurance on this...It sucks in many ways but, when you see an unsupervised brat dig out a "Nose Nugget" and plant it in the corn...You get the picture!

Decent food, mostly hot for appropriate items, good salad bar & dessert bar. Service slow and spotty, long waits for drink refills and plate clearance

This is a nice place if you are on the road and want to take a break. Ave may selections of food. Only problem is that the cake I had was dry and crumbly.

The pot roast was very good, but with such a wide assortment of items, everything else was pretty good too. You will be stuffed when you leave. Try to save room for the chocolate fountain. The staff was attentive and friendly. The place really fills up so I suggest an early arrival and come hungry.

A very busy, but typical Golden Corral. The food was tasty. I always like the fried chicken and the carrot cake! We don’t order a beverage (just ask for water) but when we get our dessert, they will always bring a cup of coffee if we ask (at no extra charge).

If you're looking for fancy, don't go here. If you're looking for good food cooked the way we do it here in Wisconsin, this is the place you're looking for. Be prepared for lines out the door on Sundays during breakfast hours, and most weekend nights are busy for dinner also but the food is plentiful, hot, and in most... More

Food is good and plenty. The wait staff us always nice and patient even when it's always busy. Popular with the families they try to control kids getting out of control but it's the parents that should keep in eye on there kids. To fill you're tummy and not need to eat for the rest of the day this is... More
