I went in at 4PM. The line was short. However, I had to go to 4 different tables as it appeared that they had not been wiped down. The food was fresh and good. The server didn't check on me enough to keep my drink filled.

This is a cafeteria-style restaurant offering a full range of selections. The main reason we visited was for the salad bar. Wow, were we disappointed. The usual mix of greens were available, including iceberg lettuce, as well as a few add-in ingredients and dressings, but we were underwhelmed owing to the sparseness of it all. Moreover, we didn't observe much... More

Most food was great most time is always crowded try to get there before 5pm seems to be the best. It can be very noisy at times.

This is a unique Buffet full of a lot of variety has a lot of Southern Comfort Foods as well as different styles of foods. I found that the buffet was not updated as much as it should have been. And seem to look like it's sitting there for ages. Some of the food I had was very very good.... More

Do not I repeat do not go by reviews when it comes to food. I didn't and I'm glad I didn't I loved everything I ate, service great, and now it's my number one place. Only complaint is parents need to fix young children plates so they won't play over the food somtimes little hands don't get wash very well... More

I took a drink of Dr.Pepper, when I noticed something that looked like dried up lettuce, on the inside of my glass. I got it out, to discover that it was a broken fingernail. I have never been so disgusted in my life. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. (We should have taken the vomit in the parking... More

Well! We took Jeff Foxworthy's advice (radio ads) and visited one of the Golden Corral restaurants, the one in Hermitage, TN. We do not have this type of restaurant in Canada, at least not where we come from. The place is a gigantic buffet and a gigantic seating capacity. You pay as you come in and all is included from...

We went to eat around 7pm. The service was ok. The food selection was plenty but quality was not too good. Tea was too sweet.

We figured this would be the best place to take 5 children after being at a water park. Wrong. Location was fine but not much else. They were pretty busy which is to be expected on a Saturday night. With that being said, I would think they would have a better understanding of keeping food stocked since it is so... More
