I ate here when I was down for the Tiny House Festival I got food poisining it was horrible. I should of know better most of the food looked old. I am not sure if it was the salad, the steak or what but I will never ever eat here again. I urge you to stay away from this place.

This location had change of ownership a few years back. For a time that did not go well. However the team has gotten their grove back and with a new GM things are turning around. We enjoy this place again and it offers a decent value, just go in hungry.

Typical Golden Corral food. The cleanliness is lacking. The service was horrible when we went (stacks of plates, no drinks, waitress kept disappearing). However, another waitress was very nice to us and helped us get drinks. When the manager was told of the issue he worked to try and straighten things out.

Nothing out of the extraordinary, not much meat at the grill, always ran out and people waiting for it. Restroom needs a lot of upgrades. Food was ok but not the best. Not very impressed with this one.

My husband and I decided to go to Golden Corral instead of another restaurant that was right next door, because we thought it would be cheaper. Boy were we wrong. We went on a Saturday night for dinner and 2 dinners and 2 sodas cost $35.00. Food was very bland and healthy choices were limited. My husband got the steak... More

I'm not a big fan of buffets but after having said that, I've been to two Golden Corrals in my life and the first one was in Jacksonville which was a hell hole of a restaurant. But this one is pretty nice. The lobby and bathroom were clean and the wait staff were very friendly. And the food was good... More

My cousin and his wife came to visit and because of dietary challenges we decided to eat at Golden Corral. There were some good choices. There wasn't much fruit choices, but what was there was fresh. I would have really liked to have more fish choices that weren't fried. The service was very good. They have very good specials during... More
