I find that the food is good most of the time. Today was no different. Was very crowded. Got there for the tail end of breakfast. Was a little disappointed that they changed over to lunch so early.

I have been to several Golden Corral buffets and this is the best! The food is always fresh and the pizza is amazing! Desserts of every kind tempt your taste buds and the wait staff is always friendly and attentive. I highly recommend! :)

The food was decent, like you would find at other Golden Corrals. It's a buffet, all you can eat. One distinguishing feature is the chocolate fountain. You hold any kind of food under the fountain and it gets drenched in chocolate. My grandson had a...More

For parents dealing with young children, this is the ideal place to eat for two reasons. The enormous variety of food choices on the buffet makes it possible to introduce new foods to the children. They can try a taste of anything you'd like them...More
