I found a flat piece of clear plastic in the Bourbon Chicken. I showed it to the manager who said she was going to pull it. There didn't appear to be any concern for the health implications of serving plastic in food.

Driving by on many occasions, decided the full parking lot may be on to something. Only downside was the check out line was slow due to many children and adults pondering what to drink. Clean, well lit restaurant with ample seating. Many Choices in each category: Salads, main entrees as well as desserts. Overall very good experience. Will be back.... More

We just went there and literally a roach crowd out. My daughter screaming and had management come out. We was refunded our money. I read the reviews going I, but said I'll give them a try anyway. We'll, not going there anymore. We never eat out, but the children wanted so I said why not.b

This was our first time at the GC and took the kids here last week and was very impressed with the amount of food on offer pretty much anything you can think of they had from steak chicken salads veggies to desserts . I really liked the steak and crispy shrimps but I've got to say it was all rather... More

This will be a quick review. All you want from any buffet in particular is a varied selection of food, sanitary conditions, good space and the taste of the food must be quality as if it was only cooked for one or two people. This location achieves all of those attributes hands down! I have frequented this Golden Corral location... More

my wife and I visited this golden corral on may 17 2016. we have eaten in these venues all over the usa and this one is by far the worst of the bunch. this place was dirty from top to bottom, spilled food everywhere, and the buffet was disgusting.,the best part of the whole meal was the water.

When they are good it's great. However they are verry inconsistent . Overcooked or not it goes on the serving table. 15 minute wait for chicken.

We had a large church function there in one of the party rooms. A lot of food on buffet was old and dryed out. Only one waitress for 60 guests and she had trouble keeping up with drinks/clearing tables (no fault of hers- should of had more staff). We were able to visualize the kitchen while waiting for our daughters... More
