“Feels Dirty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

This location gave me a very poor impression of Golden Corral. After eating at a location elsewhere, I realized it was just the 56th Street location that was run down.

“This is not a good example of GC”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

The food continually ran out. Food areas were messy. The restaurant was dirty and the facility generally need repair. Ceilings and bathrooms were not only filthy but needed repair. Not sure if there was enough servers or if generally service is just bad. This was my worst experience at a GC. Patrons were allowed to lean over food and the salad bar was messy and empty of most items.

Management should take a close revamp immediately.

“Great food and management”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Golden Corral is a wonderful restaurant, the management really cares about making a great impression and offering wonderful service. The district manager has even been providing complimentary appetizers during our Tuesday managers reception for our hotel guests. Thank you for not only helping the hotel but for taking care of our guests.

“OKAY- won't be returning”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

This restaurant was brutal …
Firstly for 2 adults, 2 seniors and one 4 year old the bill came to $70 which is normal but the food selection was not good at all!
This place was so dirty, the girls bathroom had puke all over it and had no paper towel- honestly this restaurant was a hot mess.
The food wasn't good it was kind of tasteless and gross actually, and I'm not even a picky eater! I have had better food in third world countries & thats not an exaggeration!

I will say though that the service was pretty good! The people working there were really nice and always asking if we needed anything else!
But overall i probably won't be returning here it was just kind of gross.

“GREAT!”

Excellent food, excellent staff. Best Golden Corral I've been to, especially compared to the terrible one that we have in Port Orange, Fl.
