We tried the dinner buffet since we are staying close by. The Golden Corral had the usual choices found on a buffet. I had the fried chicken with some veggies and I tried their apple cobbler for dessert. Service was good, our drinks refilled and plates cleared often. It seemed like a popular restaurant, lots of people around the buffet.... More

Had time to spare before an appointment so dropped in for breakfast - should not have. The scrambled eggs were stringy, had too much water added to them and not cooked out, and lumpy, the bacon was not well done, the corned beef hash had that metallic canned flavor to it, the blueberry pancakes were hard, dry, and tough -...

Golden Corral is our favourite buffet while visiting the USA. This one is one of the best I have been to. Everything was good especially the pot roast, baked fish, rolls and carrot cake. Only problem is trying not to overdo it.

Decided to drop in for breakfast after a stressful night. Not too crowded, omelet line long, bacon a little too crispy for my taste, pork steak pieces very, very good -- the best thing on the bars that I ate. Beef tips too dry, had too much tendon, very chewy, and not tasty. Eggs were not dry and good, grits... More

The Monday following Veterans day, this Golden Coral offers a free meal to all the men and women that have served. The place was very crowded,. The servers were spot on, cleaning up the tables and more veterans were then seated. A big kudos to this establishment for a job well done. The food was kept hot, and plenty of... More

We enjoy stopping on the way home from work. Unfortunately, the restaurant runs low at the end of the day. I have noted that they don't always have steak available. The general food quality is good.

Usually don't think of Golden Corral for prime rib, more so the delicious hot rolls, pot roast, mashed potatoes and gravy and loads of vegetables, But this time after my crispy green salad with caesar dressing- which was very good, I opted to try the prime rib. Really great portion size, perfectly roasted to medium rare and Hot- which usually... More
