This was my first visit to a Golden Corral. This location is in very poor condition - they have obviously not kept the place up. Food was hit or miss - mostly miss. Some items were okay, some very average. There was one glimpse of excellence: We were warmly greeted with a big, genuine smile by our server - she... More

We drove from the airport to this restaurant because we wanted to try their prime rib. It starts at 4 on Friday, if you wait a half hour, the rush is over and you can walk right up and get what you like. The fried shrimp were great and the sirloin with marsala sauce was also a big hit. They... More

The buffet areas are not well maintained and are not kept tidy. For example, someone had stuck the chili ladle in the clam chowder and it had apparently gone unnoticed for quite awhile as a "skin" had developed over the top of the clam chowder with the chili mixed in it. The salad bar looked like a hurricane had hit... More

To expensive for quality! We spent the same amount of money at Golden Corral to feed 5 people that we would have spent at a much nicer restaurant. The food did not taste good, the staff didn't maintain the buffet properly and the plates and utensils were dirty. The only thing that was nice was the waitress.

This was an older location, but was clean and the workers friendly. Lots of good food choices, It's a pretty good value for the cost, and even if you don't like everything, you're bound too like something. Even the carpet was very clean.

I very seldom eat at buffetts but as we were in Jax decided to stop here. Very crowded! It was a Sunday. The people behind us in line had a Pomerian dog on a leash (NOT a service dog) I asked the cashier if dogs were allowed and pointed out the dog. She informed them dogs were not allowed. They...

I always enjoy myself with the variety of foods. The cornbread is tasty , the pull pork , fried chicken (i take the skin off) and chicken bourbon. Cant beat that.

The food was good, the selection was pretty good, the grilled steak was tough and flavorless both times we went their. Very clean and friendly staff with good service. The biggest complaint the place was freezing!

Had late breakfast there this morning and the chow was good. All of the breakfast buffet items were readily available. However the grits were far to soft for my taste and they need to get another cook for that item. My waitress Antonia was very nice and was spot on with her service. This place is worth the stop if...
