Food and service were both decent. They are centrally located and convenient. They are privately owned and do NOT honor the Golden Corral specials advertised on TV. That was disappointing!

We go to GC at different locations. This is one of the better ones as very clean, staff was friendly, our server extremely good, and the food selection large - Taste very good.

Typical Golden Corral. Lots of choices, food was correct temp, my waitress was very good and sadly I didn't get her name but she had dark hair and a small back brace around her lower back. I was there on Dec 9 at 4pm.

Stopped in while passing through Lynchburg. No lines, reasonably priced and friendly service. Nice variety on the buffet including a ton of desserts. Sometimes buffets can be all over the place, but we found this one to be very good.

My wife and I dine there once in a while. We do when they have the prime rib because the steaks are always way over cooked, very rare or tough. The servers are very nice and seem to be overworked. The other food seems to be just average for a buffet. The shrimp are the typical frozen over breaded ones... More

Basically it is cafeteria food. The food is 2nd grade at best. The meat is overloaded with salt. It is good if you want a lot of cheap food and you don't care about quality (I have had better food at McDonalds).

Excellent ALL THE WAY! Service great. Value great. Food great. We go because my husband says it is some of the best prime rib, even better than the expensive restaurants he as dined. The selections were so many. Salad bar, mex/tex bar, chinese bar, american bar, rolls, deserts, etc. If you don't find something here to love then you can't... More

Although under the weather, I attempted to make Golden Corral one of my first stops for a meal. The food was good. The atmosphere was pleasant. Enjoyed my time at this Golden Corral.
