Big selection of food. Clean restaurant. Poor wait staff. The steak cooked to order was excellent, flavorful, and tender.

The Golden Corral has the biggest selection I've ever seen! A few stations even have food prepared to order. Large dining room (i.e. great also for groups) at a fair price.

Service was bad. No refills on our drinks. Great variety of food. And they kept it hot! For a buffet it was good.

We went here after checking out of the water park hotel and it was an absolute mad house. We wanted breakfast and apparently so did everyone else. They had one side for breakfast and one for lunch and they couldn't keep up with the food. Every tray was empty and people were standing around waiting. The only thing you could... More

Ate here twice during this trip and was unlucky enough to have the same waitress both times. Food was good but service was very poor. My mother finally got up to try to find a refill after looking for our server and she came up to her and grabbed the glass from her hand then brought it to the table... More

Always the best value for dining! The weekend seafood was great (who can say no to various types of shrimp and scallops!) but their steak is the star attraction and very underrated.
