Sundays are way too crowded. Staff is very friendly. Steaks are good, only reason I come here. I never seem to be able to get my steak rare or medium rare like I order, but it's so good, I don't care.

I have taken my family to numerous different Golden Corrals before during our travels. The Golden Corral in Frederick Md is by far the lowest amongst them all. The restaurant was small and the buffet selection was mediocre at best. The taste was subpar. I didn't expect gourmet food but compared to other Golden corrals the food was tasteless. It... More

This buffet is better than most . I never get sick after eating here and everything seems hygienic . Just the same, you will be handling serving utensils used by the public and might want to wash your hands after filling your plates and before eating . Otherwise, you can grip the tools with a rubber glove or napkin .... More

Awesome staff, great deals, solid promotion of veterans and our nations true heroes. Incredibly kid friendly and considerate. Went way out of their way. Its no longer a choice, its a given.

Very disappointed. Employee cutting the prime rib was rude. Shrimp was over done. Prime rib was horrible, what little we got. The employee sliced it so thin it was like lunch meat. Only for my daughter and myself. The gentleman before us and the gentleman behind us received 1 inch cuts. Very disappointed. Will not stop there again.

Surprisingly, the Golden Corral in Frederick MD that exceeds the standard fare and taste of typical "all-you-can-eat" buffets. We have there a number of times in the recent past and have sampled the large variety of entrees as well as the 'fixins' and the desserts. The management has provided offerings for an appetite that starts with soup and salad, to... More

My wife and I were in the Frederick MD area and decided to stop at the Golden Corral for supper before returning home to Virginia. It was quite similar, but yet just a little different than our local Golden Corral. The selection of salad, main menu and desert items was quite extensive. The steak I found to be very tender...

Our group stopped for a very, very late lunch and most of us were amazed by the quality of the food available. This is not a fine dining establishment, yet you clearly get your moneys' worth. Yes, some of the hot dishes were a little old, but others were clearly just out of the oven. The salads and fresh fruit... More

We were heading home to New York from Virginia and stopped for gas. We checked out the area and found a Golden Coral nearby so we stopped. While it is almost 18 dollars a person for a meal and drink there. The food is Never ending and very good indeed.

Went for an early dinner at the Golden Corral in Frederick Md.. The fried shrimp was delicious! Prime Rib was juicy & tender. Huge selection of food and desserts. It was just after 4 and the restaurant was getting crowded. Waitresses were very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the buffet. Love this place!!!
