we found this Golden Coral by accident since we were new to the area---and glad we did. I was not impressed to start with because about everything on my plate was not hot. Our server asked "how is everything?" I had to tell him my food was not hot. Was not long until the manager showed up at the table... More

This is one of many visits to this Golden Corral. We love coming to eat lunch here on Sunday after church. The staff are always friendly and attractive.The food is always good and there is so much to choose from. Huge salad bar, food bar and dessert bar. They even offer sugar free desserts! We love it!

This is a typical chain buffet location filled with all sorts of people. It can be noisy at times. The staff is friendly and helpful. They also keep the place clean. The food is good, and there is a large variety.

Overall, the restaurant was up to par with other Golden Corrals. I came in around 6:30 pm on a Tuesday and the food bar was stocked pretty well, except for the broiled fish. However, the attendant behind the grill was very attentive and immediately refilled the tray when it was brought to his attention. I also saw him assisting another... More

This Golden Corral is one of the older ones. It still offers more on the buffet than you could possible decide on. At night the steak is a sure bet, and you can choose a cut that is cooked the way you like it. Affordable, especially if you are over 60.

I visited this Golden Corral for the couple of days I was in town and on each day the food was fresh and hot. The items were different during each of my visits. The staff was very friendly and although the place was very busy, there was no line as I could get in and out with my order to... More

We have eaten here a few times. Sometimes it is good--sometimes food is not as fresh and empty dishes.Not as good on holidays or when very busy.
