After some of the negative reviews here I almost decided against eating here, but having eaten Thanksgiving Dinner at other Golden Corrals in other cities and been pleased, I decided to give the one in Farmington a try. I was not disappointed. Carved turkey, ham, spinach casserole, dressing, gravy, broccoli, hot yeast roll, yam casserole, pumpkin pie with whipped cream... More

Excellent! The food selection's the best around. The service is great..keeping drinks filled and removing plates as you eat, so I always tip. The food melts in your mouth.

The food here is pretty good--tasty and well prepared, but definitely not gourmet. There were some issues with the restaurant. First, although there was an excellent selection of food indicated, much of it was gone and the staff were very slow in refreshing the buffet. As an example, there were only a few marinated mushrooms when I first visited the... More

We decided to eat at this restaurant based on other Glen Corral Buffets we have been to. This was terrible. Most of the waiters were standing around visiting with each other and when we asked one of them for clean plates at our end of the restaurant we were told they were coming out. Never did see them. Salad bar... More

Roomy, open and friendly service. Food is consistently tasty but expect some items will run out right before 4 p.m.

Seems like everytime I go to the Golden Corral no matter what time of the day and dishes are almost empty. Yesterday we went at 12:30 to lunch hour and the same thing. The cooks need to keep up on their jobs and if it's getting low cook more. They have remodeled the place but now the cooks need a... More

Arrived at 7:45 p.m. Closing time is 10 but we were told they were closing "due to the weather." It was cold but clear and dry. The hostess said we could come in but we were the last customers. Before we had a chance to finish our dinner they starting putting away the food. We did not get seconds much... More

Had to wait at least 20 minutes to get seated. Seems they either had new cashiers and no one was in charge. Everyone on the staff was running around but nothing seemed to get accomplished. The seated, we were given our drinks and visited only once by a server. The food was ok and the kitchen seemed to be always... More

I am not particularly happy with this place lately. Rather it's breakfast lunch or dinner a lot of the dishes are almost empty. Today we got here at 1130 so they had not been open that long and the salad bar was mostly empty. Come on its veterans day it's the lunch rush let's keep stuff stocked up. It's one... More

I know. I'm giving a buffet restaurant that has had some health inspection issues an excellent rating, but I really enjoy Golden Corral. From the buttery rolls to the mashed potatoes and white gravy to the bread pudding there is something for everyone there.
