Food is still very tasty. Items are hot and they do refill the trays when needed. I found milk went up for seniors $ 2.69 ea. $ 25.49 for two senior dinners isn't to bad for all the food they have for you to select from. Chicken is always good. Salad bar has a good variety of items. If your... More

Retired people can find great deals and great opportunities. Going to Golden Corral mid-afternoon during the week is the best: no lines, few screaming kids, lots of places to sit, food bar well-stocked. Plus you get a senior discount. The only danger is that you might overeat and blow your diet....but since it is a buffet, try eating tiny portions... More

We live in Marysville and have driven by the Golden Corral many times. The parking lot was always full & we kept wondering how that could be at a buffet restaurant. We are not "buffet restaurant" diners by any means, but we decided to see why it always seemed so crowded. They have a great salad bar & id say... More

Whole family was very happy with choices especially chocolate fountain was a big with the kids. Place is a diner style, we liked the atmosphere, choices were plentiful, food... More

Golden Corral need I say more! The food was great and this location was very busy when we were there and the had very helpful, friendly staff. The staff didn't seem stressed and they had enough staff to handle the volume. The food was great and never out of stock.

Our family now makes plans to eat at this restaurant whenever passing through town. We landed with a shrimp/prawn special week. They had several interesting preparations to add to the normally excellent food.

This buffet is successful because the turnover of food is high and fast so your chances of hot food is high! If you were gluten free or vegetarian you could easily manage. They have a good salad bar with a lot of ingredients to customize your salad. I like that it only has a few premade, predressed salads. They have... More

This is my one of my grandmothers favorite places to go. There is a large variety, and they do have room for large groups, but ....its just typical over sugared, over cooked , high starch foods. This location is kind of grimy , and crowded. I don't understand the line outside...really people.

Ate here about five days ago after golfing with five other senior friends.Was a little dubious about eating at a buffet of this type,but became a fan after indulging in the wide variety of dishes. Had pork ribs with BBQsauce,teriyaki sirloin steak,fried chicken,breaded shrimp and some nice desserts.Didn't have enough room for the ice cream offerings or the large salad... More

A bit crowded but what would you expect for a place like this one. Plenty of hot food at a reasonable price. The wait staff were all very attentive
