Normally I try to hit local, non-chain restaurants when travelling, but inevitably a chain place sneaks in. I'm not complaining, though. The staff was nice, there's a little bit of something for everyone, and the place is clean as well. The food is basically what you'd expect from a buffet chain, but good nonetheless. It's also pretty hard to argue with a chocolate fountain, right?

Have visited several Golden Coral's in multiple states and this is by far the best facility. The owner truly cares about his employees and his guests and it shows. This is an older building, but it is maintained exceptionally well. ALL the staff are very friendly and helpful. Over the last 7 years of visiting this facility not one time have I had a bad experience. The quality of the food is exceptional. I eat my steaks rare/extra rare and unlike other places, have never had a cook give me "the look" or sling the food at me (yes actually had that happen at another concept), or try to convince me that to eat it well done. The food is fresh.

Hadn't been to the Corral in awhile so we hit it for the Sunday dinner menu. Everything was cooked well and stocked plentifully, even though the place was fairly crowded. Try the new Berry Berry Waffles; fresh and tasty. The salad bar was great as usual, and the selection of entrees was large. If you can't find something to like at Corral you must be a very fussy eater. And our server, Amanda, was very attentive as well.

Prime rib, fish, chicken, shrimp, roast beef, Mexican, Japanese and on and on. SO many choices. Salads, desserts, breads, vegetables and so much more. Yes the price is on the high side but if you ordered prime rib at a steakhouse it would probably cost more and you might get a baked potato with it. Here you get lots and lots of food to choose from for the same price. To me its more of an experience.

This restaurant is clean and well-stocked. Lots of delicious food to choose from. There is plenty of seating and it is very well lit.
