Variety of food you would expect at Golden Coral. We enjoyed our visits during our extended stay in the area. We found the food tasty, served fresh, and had a variety for different tastes. Service staff was attentive and customer oriented. Facility was clean, well maintained and a good place to talk while enjoying your meal.

If you can't decide on what sounds good, this is the place to go. Plenty of salads, meats, sides, and desserts. They're dinner rolls are sooo good!. Clean and normally busy.

The sign inside stated that Brunch ran from 9 am to 2 pm. We arrived about quarter to 11. At 11 am all the serving tables were changed over to Lunch/Dinner. We went there for the BRUNCH. Overall, the food was good, but was looking forward to the BRUNCH.

We like going to GC when we don't know what to eat, they have a good selection of salads and we went on the roast beef night. Whenever we go we try to be sitting in Lolly's section, she is amazing and she treats her customer like family....

They have a good variety of food for the money. The winner here is their slow roasted pot roast..Their mashed potatoes and cabbage are very good......The prime rib was only warm and not very tender...Along with several other entrees I had which also were not warm....They need to keep their entree hot...

Why more people don't take advantage of some of the best buffet food at really good prices amazes me. If you are a senior you can eat from 2:00 till 4:00 every weekday for just over $7.00 including your drink. Today I had the Chicken Gumbo soup, a great salad, fried chicken, all kinds of vegetables, and blueberry pie and... More

I pulled out 5 knives before I found one that looked reasonably clean. We paid over $30 for two buffets on a Sunday evening. The food was plentiful, but not all that good. I wish we had went to Cracker Barrel instead.

The Golden Corral has good food and excellent value for your money. But, that's where it stops. The first impression when I pull up to the restaurant are the workers smoking outside by the front door. So, in order to get through the front door my asthmatic daughter and I have to walk through a plume of smoke. To make... More
