We hit the Golden Corral on a Wednesday night, when you can find an empty table. I love that their salad buffet includes a seafood salad - and it is tasty. At some buffets, the food is bland or overcooked, but this one has such a high turnover that the food is fresh. Everything was good from salad through dessert. The price is reasonable, especially for a tourist hotspot like Pigeon Forge. With drinks (coffee, tea and colas, with instant refills), our meal was just under $15 per person.

To me, the real distinction of a good restaurant is the staff. Our server, Mandy, was efficient, pleasant, and friendly. Even the other servers and wait staff around us were very friendly. They were willing to discuss local activities, what to see, and how to avoid the traffic problems that plague Pigeon Forge during Rod Run. I recommend this restaurant highly.

Should inform all customers up front on Saturdays and Sundays it's dinner prices and not lunch (even if you're eating Lunch)

Very clean compared to other golden corrals we've been too. Very reasonable and steak was tender and prepared the way you want it.

We always eat here when we go to the area, and we just returned from another vacation there.

The good- food is great, plenty to choose from, and better than our local Golden Corral.

The bad- this place is poorly laid out. There are about 4-5 different stations where people don't form lines, and it's a headache trying to get to what you want, and it's complete madness on a weekend in a major tourist attraction. It is just not designed to accommodate the amount of tourists it receives. All the other Golden Corrals we have been to have their stations in a straight line, and that works much better.

Our family chose to eat here because we wanted a variety of choices. Golden Corral satisfied the 5 of us with a delicious smorgasbord of delight. The older ones loved the steak bar and the little ones loved chocolate fountain!! We are all happy eaters!!
