We don't have Golden corral in New York City, so we tried to visit this restaurant when in Lancaster. It is wonderful because there is something for everyone. We have never been disappointed. Great selection, great price, great food.

The only thing that sets a golden corral from another GC is the staff. I really enjoyed the Lancaster GC over several others from different states. Food was good, Plentiful, wait staff was prompt etc. I would go here again! You should too!

We were pleasantly surprised that they were open at 8+PM and still serving everything on the buffet. The meal was pretty good considering the later hour. The chicken was a bit dry but the steak was great as well as the cornbread. The cost was...More

The food wasn't terrible, though nothing memorable. It's your average over-salted, greasy typical buffet food. Most of it was up to temp, it seemed as though the containers were kept up with being stirred and rotated. There's nothing BAD about it. It will fill those...More
