We used to enjoy stopping at the Golden Corral in Grand Rapids when we happened to be that way. Over the past couple of visits I have noted their food service to be declining. However, our visit on November 17 was the worst. None of the coolers or warmers worked. I went to get some things off the salad bar... More

My wife and two of my daughters went on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. Although the restaurant was very busy, the service was very good and the food was delicious.

We walked in and we had a terrible feeling. The entrance was cattle train style line. The price was $40.00 for 2 adults and 1 child. Pop prices were nearing $3.00. The steak was rubbery so I couldn't eat it. The one half of the building near the salad bar smelled like someone peed all over the floor, and let... More

The food was normal. Not much different from any other golden coral ive been to. But the customers that were there, were the rudest ive come across.

We went to this restaurant following a funeral recently. The very first thing my husband asked the manager who happened to be near the cashier if we might have a tray to carry our drinks. We were told we didn't need a tray. My husband mentioned again he would like a tray and the manager marched off toward the kitchen.... More

Good selection and the the fried chicken and pot roast were very good; better than expected. Veggies on salad bar were fresh and a large variety. Dessert area was very messy; pieces of pie were tipped over and chocolate was on the floor. Also the booth had lots of greasy hand prints on the backs and the window next to... More

Oh, dont get me started on the dishes, my girl friend and I look thru 5 cups, 8 plates, 10 forks, 10 spoons 6 bowls a piece before... More

Let me just start off by saying - I am not a fan of this restaurant. 'Walmart version of a restaurant ' The only reason I went this place is because of my elderly aunt. She like other elderly people love this place. The customers were a really rough crowd to deal with - a bunch of 'in-breeding' must have... More

Normally I like Golden Corral, but this one was poorly managed. The food was over cooked, the pans the food sat in looked like they hadn't been change all day. I tried to eat some sesame chicken and had to spit it out. It tasted really bad The cooks were drinking in front of customers without straws (hand to mouth... More
