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

The food is good, quite variety to include vegetables and healthy choices, good home-cooking style items, desserts and more.

Don't know why anyone would review a Golden Corral. Kind of like reviewing your old shoes for comfort. A pretty dull atmosphere. Lots of food and selection and variety. Something for everyone. Never seen bad or wilted food at this place. Stays on top of food lines for the most part with fresh cold and hot foods. Nothing outstanding. Nothing... More

This place is close to our house and every time I go I swear I'll never go back. Then I wait a year and give it another try and it's even worse. I realize it's a buffet and they say "you get what you pay for". But for an $18 meal with a glass of water where you serve yourself... More
