Hurricane Matthew blew me to Shelby, NC...went there with a friend on Lake Moss, she enjoyed the catfish, I enjoyed the meatloaf, mashed potatoes, cornbread and bean selection (peas, green beans). Hard working staff, ample parking, clean tables, floors and serving area. Thanks for keeping everything stocked, good taste and hard work!

We stop for breakfast each year on our annual Fall trip to the North Carolina mountains for apple picking. The staff is always nice and friendly. The breakfast buffet has a lot to offer and it is quick to eat breakfast and enjoy the meal. We have been doing this for the past 6 years and always look forward to... More

My husband and I enjoy the buffet and we have eaten for all three meals. The food is fresh and a big variety.

What can I say? A Golden Corral is a Golden Corral as long as it maintains company standards. The only disappointment I've ever had at the Shelby, NC Golden Corral is not finding chopped pecans on the salad bar. Been a while. My only other complaint is pretty much the same across the south: can't get many vegetables without swine.... More

This was my hubby's family reunion meal. They got lots of food and had a good time. This is average food. Nothing bad but nothing outstanding either.

16 of us arrived late evening for dinner after a softball tournament service was great food was good. They had obviously been very busy because there were a lot of dirty tables and such but they were actively cleaning them while taking care of current customers. I'm not a huge fan of buffets but that's just my preference and this... More

Some of the reviews had me a little leery but the butterfly shrimp was good (too much breading but that was easily removed). The salad bar was fresh with a decent variety of items. I would go back.

We had over 40 family members gather here & close out our Family reunion weekend! The salad items were fresh, the clam chowder was good. We all loved the food and the dessert was Devine. The kids had ice cream, chocolate fountain, gummi Bears, carrot cake, cotton candy etc.

Went there with a group after graduation, the food was nothing to brag about. Even though there was LOTS to choose from, nothing I got made an impression. The salad was good, but the main dishes were sort of plain. For the price you pay, it should be Delicious!!

What a terrific variety of Chinese, Mexican, Italian, and American food. Whether you are looking for a plethera of choices at a great salad bar , excellent soups, southern foods, and Best Ever pot roast, you need to discipline yourself not to show up daily!
