Family went to Golden Coral for our last dinner in town until next year. Food is great, selection wonderful. Service good. My only critique would be that the center section should have the larger tables so handicapped people didn't have to walk whole distance of restaurant and the distance between tables was too short for room for walkers. I took... More

We went today & my sister found a straw in her salad (mngr said it was from a mushroom) but then, we saw a waitress pick her nose with a napkin & walk off without washing her hands. Later, she was scratching/picking at her ears & EATING IT! We will not be back.

My meal then consisted of grilled steak (very good) and butterflied fried shrimp. (O.K. I splurged!) Both meats were delicious. The vegetables that I had were also good. I am not... More

I ate here when I was down for the Tiny House Festival I got food poisining it was horrible. I should of know better most of the food looked old. I am not sure if it was the salad, the steak or what but I will never ever eat here again. I urge you to stay away from this place.

This location had change of ownership a few years back. For a time that did not go well. However the team has gotten their grove back and with a new GM things are turning around. We enjoy this place again and it offers a decent value, just go in hungry.

Typical Golden Corral food. The cleanliness is lacking. The service was horrible when we went (stacks of plates, no drinks, waitress kept disappearing). However, another waitress was very nice to us and helped us get drinks. When the manager was told of the issue he worked to try and straighten things out.

Thank TerriSusanne
