This restaurant needs some updating. Of course when we ate there, it was later in the evening. The food was average, as was the service.

Some of the food was excellent, some looked like it had been there for a long time. The desserts were not good and the soft serve ice cream was terrible. It was not busy when we arrived on a Friday evening at 5:30. When we left at 6:30 there was a long line to get in.

The food was fresh, hot,and tasteful. The staff was polite, clean, and helpful. Our server was terrific, our drinks stayed full and she even let us take our dog the meat scraps.

A little "pricy" for those without a large appetite, especially for seniors. The food was fair to good.

I had 1 piece of fish that was good,and they never brought any more out..We should have known it was not going to be good by the number of cars in the parking... More

yup, tons of food, all poor quality. If you want a cheap place to eat with a lot of bad tasting food, step right up to this food bar. Too bad they don't try a little harder, but the quality is too poor to bother with. The desserts were really awful, looked bad and tasted bad. Save your money and... More

The food is very good. However, staff does not keep the buffet areas clean. Wish they had someone to do nothing but keep the buffet area cleaned from all the mess from people serving themselves.

I ate here twice last month as I often use Golden Corral as my go-to place when in an unfamiliar area. No real complaints, service was good one time and fair the other. Food was not quite up to normal Golden Corral level IMO but was still pretty good and it's a good deal for the price. Place looked clean.... More

Back in 2013 the business was ok. HOWEVER, that is not the case as of present. 2016 we have gone 4 times and all the times we have gone the food is bland and is cold. My mother even got sick I believe from eating the cold food. Her tuna salad was spoiled she had gotten from the salad bar.... More

I am not a big buffet type of person especially not for Golden Corral, but after this experiecence I have had a change of heart. The food was really tasteful, and fresh. The staff was pleasant, and the kitchen was on point with getting food items changed out and replacing them with fresh ones. The dessert bar is amazing. I... More
