We were able to walk to this restaurant from our condo. The selection of food was good and the price was very reasonable. The staff were very friendly.

The food had sat out so long that it was neither cold or crusty. Got a steak and it was so aver grilled it could not be chewed. Steak was like leather. If you did look at a piece of pie you would not know what Flavor it was supposed to be.

We stopped for dinner after a tour of Colonial Williamsburg. The buffet had many choices of good food. The dining room was clean and the employees were friendly and helpful. We would stop here again.

Typical Golden Corral buffet. Same ole, same ole. Overall food counters could have been kept a bit cleaner. We were there about a hour early for the "Early Bird Special", but we had a coupon so that helped with the price.

This restaurant is a mess. There are too many tables in too small a space. The food was ok. Most of the food had been sitting out for a bit and the new food coming out was burned. Our server was great! She would be the only reason we would return.

Ate here twice while on vacation in Williamsburg. Food was hot and well-seasoned. Most memorable was the roasted turkey with dressing and gravy, the sirloin steak and the coconut pie.

We walked over to this restaurant after a 9 hour ride to Williamsburg. The food was mediocre at best. We stuck with the salad bar because it was the only thing that tasted decent. Not only was the food bland and tasteless, but we were told they were only open until 9:00 (45 minutes later) and as soon as we... More

There was nothing on the buffet that was "good". The entire salad bar was beat up, lettuce and spinach wilted, the mushrooms looked like olives, and it was only 11:30am. The hot veggies were cold and dry, chicken was over cooked, even the yeast rolls were hard and crusty. Definitely the worst Golden Corral we've ever visited.

We've been to Golden Corral's before. We love it because you can get delicious steak cooked to order. Plus a large variety of other Foods. All in all it's pretty good meal. Especially if you're bringing a group of teenage boys! So we went to this Golden Corral in Williamsburg Virginia on our vacation to Busch Gardens. We went Thursday... More
