I went to this restaurant a couple of times while I was on business last month in Tampa. The food, price, and service were all good but the place seemed somewhat dirty on the inside of the restaurant with apparent unclean conditions closer to the ceiling and also the carpet in the restaurant also did not appear clean (but did...

They need to invest some money in this place to clean it up a little. The staff seems very good and attentive, but it's just really dirty. There was grease or something coming out of the vent in the main dining room (not over the food thank God), but it just looked real raggedy. Thanks to Sheila for making it... More

Most of the food is edible. However, I'm always sorry I spent the money on such marginal food when for the same price I could get a pretty good meal somewhere else and enjoy it. This is not cheap dining unless your priority is bulk. Value for the quality if poor. I hope I don't get tempted again to stop... More

We had the senior early bird buffet for 7.49 with a drink at 3:30pm. Wonderful choices. before we knew it they were rolling out all the dinner choices so we had the best of both worlds. Beats a burger or sandwich shop any day.

Having visited many other Golden Corral around Florida, this was the worst for sure. Steak was over-salted but that's easily done. There wasn't as much choice of food as in the others, and our one food we always have, hotpot, just wasn't at all tasty here. Above everything else thought was the restrooms. Men's toilet was blocked and almost overflowing... More

I like Golden Corral, but the food in this restaurant did not look fresh at all. Could take better care cleaning around where the food is located.

Short and sweet. Sometimes you get what you pay for. You may be thinking, John, we read all of your reviews, and notice you rarely visit fast food or buffet type restaurants! You are right. I really don't care for the cattle call lineup seeing hungry hippos put on the feed bag! Where I get to watch folks pile their... More

There food was okay, nothing fantastic. But, it is an inexpensive buffet, not a five star restaurant. Gloria was our server and was great. She smiled, was helpful, kept drinks refilled and even joked with guests.

I am seriously offended that I payed 35$ for me and my girlfriend to eat here. When they first said the price I wanted to walk away, but they had already poured our drinks and people were behind me in line so I'd feel bad. I sucked it up and payed 35$ for 2 teens to enter and the food... More
