My wife and I dine there once in a while. We do when they have the prime rib because the steaks are always way over cooked, very rare or tough. The servers are very nice and seem to be overworked. The other food seems to be just average for a buffet. The shrimp are the typical frozen over breaded ones... More

Basically it is cafeteria food. The food is 2nd grade at best. The meat is overloaded with salt. It is good if you want a lot of cheap food and you don't care about quality (I have had better food at McDonalds).

Excellent ALL THE WAY! Service great. Value great. Food great. We go because my husband says it is some of the best prime rib, even better than the expensive restaurants he as dined. The selections were so many. Salad bar, mex/tex bar, chinese bar, american bar, rolls, deserts, etc. If you don't find something here to love then you can't... More

Although under the weather, I attempted to make Golden Corral one of my first stops for a meal. The food was good. The atmosphere was pleasant. Enjoyed my time at this Golden Corral.

Have been here and found that the manager at this establishment keeps a better place to eat. He is often present and welcomes you. The food is kept fresh and and always full containers.

The 3 of us choose GC for supper. It had been a while since our last visit to this location but was a good choice this night. The buffet was clean and loaded with everything you expect from GC. Quality was average about what you expect from their buffet. Can't say anything bad about a restaurant that offers whatever a... More

Very nice variety and selection of food. No one in our party of six complained about any item they brought back to eat. Our waitress came by our table several times and took our dirty plates and asked to refill our drinks.

We like to go to Golden Corral with my grandfather sometimes -- I couldn't say they have high-quality food, but the value is great. If you're looking for a decent, inexpensive place to eat, Golden Corral might be right for you.
