Decided to try this place as i had heard mixed reviews from friends, we arrived early evening which turned out to be to be a good idea as we were seated promptly and when we were leaving the place had became very busy.

On first entering i did not hold out much hope, the venue is set out as what can best be described as a school dining hall. although first impressions were poor the food did not disappoint. The selection of food available is great and all appeared very appetising. The steaks were cooked to perfection and all our party agreed that they tasted better than many pricier eateries we had tried.

Although I would not recommend this place if you are after a fine dining experience, Overall our visit was enjoyable and extremely good value for money.

This particular Golden Corral on Upton is the best Golden Corral of any that we're very been to. Of course, it's a buffet and like all buffets, I always eat too much, not good for the diet.

My wife, two daughters (15 and 12) and I have been to this location a half dozen times over the past couple of years. We generally go each time we travel to Virginia Beach, which is most often during the late Fall and Winter months. We just ate there last evening and we had another good experience. My daughters particularly like having lots of options, and they always want to go back.

It is difficult to keep such a busy place clean and sometimes I get turned off by this type of place, but this particular location seems to do a nice job keeping the food rotated and keeping the facility clean. The steaks that we had on this most recent trip were surprisingly tasty and the rolls are always good.

It's a huge, moderately priced buffet and it is not meant to be a high end experience, but we find we like this place right well and we feel like we get a reasonable quality of food and lots of options. In summary, we will keep returning until something changes and we get a lot of bang for our buck.
