Good Food and LOTS of it. It was buffet style, but a waitress or waiter would come by and keep your drinks filled. The staff was pleasant, and the food was varied and GREAT tasting

Service at the table is very good & fast. They take away your dishes as soon as you indicate you are finished. They always ask if anyone needs a refill on the drinks.

Every time we eat here our stomach gets upset....every time. They have a great select of food but after people go through the lines without washing their hands, coughing on the food, and letting their kids dig through the food then it really not sanitary.

The key to a good Golden Corral experience is good management. Not all golden corrals are the same. Some are despicable. This Brandon, FL location is one of the best. Clean bathrooms, hot food. Good customer service and does not stink.

Used to be ok, long ago... now it's downright nasty. Food quality is very poor. Attention by staff is minimal. I was sick to my stomach for 2 days.

Was there Saturday with friends, the selection of foods was nothing short of amazing. Everything was fresh and tasty, bring your appetite. Our service lady Lilly was terrific.

We went to the Brandon Golden Coral for breakfast today. It was THE MOST DISGUSTING THING WE'VE HAD IN YEARS ! Even our 10 and 8 year olds were disgusted. And they usually eat anything. Anything passable that is. The place is dirty, smells and has paint peeling off the walls. The bathroom was absolutely appalling. My husband even saw... More
