Most Golden Corral's are busy; however, this one seemed over capacity. We waited over 20 minutes just to get to the cash register. Usually we receive a military discount but it wasn't offered (or given) at this location. We have 7 children, which I understand can be overwhelming to some, but they were rang up incorrectly (based on age). Our... More

They talk about how many people they can seat but they aren't able to feed that many. There were many empty trays at the buffet and rolls were not available.

Stopped here for lunch after arriving in Branson. Have visited Golden Corral restaurants in Oklahoma many many times BUT this location did not measure up to our previous experiences. Food choices were limited with many entree pans sitting empty. Buffet was very messy with food spills that were not cleaned up. Our waitress was very good and very friendly but... More

This was one of the best Golden Corrals we ever visited. Very clean with a very attentive wait staff. Food was replenished frequently. Loved the salad bar. Truly enjoyed the meal!

Normally we like Golden Corral but this location the food did not look or taste very good. The food looked like it had been sitting there for hours and the price paid was not worth it since they increase their prices at 4p.

You certainly won't leave hungry! There is so much to choose from and everything we tried was good. We had a gal constantly refilling our beverages for us too. She was very attentive, considering the crowd. We beat the rush but the place filled up very quickly. Would definitely go back!
