A Golden Corral recently opened in CT, and since we heard the Springfield location was better and we were headed to Salem, we thought we would try it out. First of all, this is way off the highway, and out of the way if your traveling. You get a lot of food for the price, and that's about it, quantity... More

This was my late Dad's favorite restaurant. And I can see why. There's always something on the buffet that is one of your favorite's. Breakfast is great, too.

Better Buffet value than most .. - great with the steak after 4pm... same kind of food at the average buffet, maybe a bit more in the dessert area... and overall better presentation ...

I have been here during peak and off peak hours. I enjoy the selection. During busy times (Weekend evenings), the dessert bar could be monitored better. They are not quick enough to switch out picked over dessert selections and getting to the chocolate fountain is like trying to get a TV on black Friday at Walmart.

Thought it might be fun - we kept seeing the advertisements and hadn't been to a non-Chinese Restaurant Buffet in years. But this one was a huge disappointment from start to finish. First - despite the ads, you should plan to spend a little more than $20/person including the buffet, a soft drink and a tip (the signs remind you... More

Long waits and crowds didn't deter me way from the great food. Had time to chat with other veterans. Looking at the meal prices, I will be back for a less crowded experience. The only small downside was the server didn't have time to clear plates. Steak and shrimp were good.

This was our first time at a Golden Corral buffet and we chose to go for breakfast. I was a little apprehensive since most buffets have marginally warm food and I like mine hot. The omelets are cooked while you wait and you pick the portions of the mix ins. Steaks were cooked to order and done as requested. The... More

My family and I actually travel for about an hour and a half to go to Golden Corral. The food is always good and hot and they have a nice variety. Their prime rib is done just right and you can cut it with a fork. There is something for everyone. The last time we went it it was my... More

The food was what I expected for GC, the service and staff were above what I expected. Mac and cheese was good, meatloaf was good, steak was good. The downside was that some of the customers were, simply put, gross. I'd go again if I were in the area, but wouldn't make the half hour trip just to go there.
