This is pretty much another Golden Corral buffet. I've been to better and to worse. Vernal needs a restraunt like this, so it works.

Golden Corral is a good place to take a family. It has everything for a family with kids who like different things. Some will get salads, others go for the pizza. Mac n cheese is always a favorite with the cooked to order steaks. Some of the best rolls you will eat with honey butter are here. Last my kids... More

This Golden Corral is older, and offers a more limited buffet than we were used to on the Wasatch Front, the dining room was also smaller than expected, and the waitresses couldn't seem to keep up on the Thursday night we visited (the place was packed). Cleanliness was lacking and the hot food wasn't much above room temp.

This place wasn't very clean. The food presentation was kind of poor. People were friendly but award .

Usual fare, nothing special. As it was the weekend the price is hiked but the food was the same as every other one of the chain.

Very good selection and a good variety to choose from for all ages. Will happily visit again. Perhaps the needed improvement could be that most of the vegetables were over-cooked.

For a buffet in a rural town way thumbs up! Almost everything was better than expected. Clean, friendly, food decent to good. Pleasantly surprised with this golden corral location after a long day of rafting, it was just what we needed

It was prime rib weekend so I ate some. It was pretty good and not fatty or chewy. The deep fried shrimp and fried okra were good as well. I rarely eat fried food so this was a treat. There were 14 Family Members eating here and we fought over who got the last piece of pecan pie. There wasn't... More

My husband were passing through, just spending one night. We went to the Golden Corral. We could not believe the HUGE selection of meats and salads and desserts. The rolls were warm and very tasty. The waitresses were hustling around bringing out warm rolls and refilling drinks. One of the big surprises was the self serve ice cream. Usually in... More
