My wife and I were in the Frederick MD area and decided to stop at the Golden Corral for supper before returning home to Virginia. It was quite similar, but yet just a little different than our local Golden Corral. The selection of salad, main menu and desert items was quite extensive. The steak I found to be very tender...

Our group stopped for a very, very late lunch and most of us were amazed by the quality of the food available. This is not a fine dining establishment, yet you clearly get your moneys' worth. Yes, some of the hot dishes were a little old, but others were clearly just out of the oven. The salads and fresh fruit... More

We were heading home to New York from Virginia and stopped for gas. We checked out the area and found a Golden Coral nearby so we stopped. While it is almost 18 dollars a person for a meal and drink there. The food is Never ending and very good indeed.

Went for an early dinner at the Golden Corral in Frederick Md.. The fried shrimp was delicious! Prime Rib was juicy & tender. Huge selection of food and desserts. It was just after 4 and the restaurant was getting crowded. Waitresses were very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the buffet. Love this place!!!

Horrible. I can't think of one thing that actually tasted good. It was a waste of time and money. I would not recommend going back. We ate the buffet, so I guess that is partially our fault. Would still like to find a good buffet place.

Was super crowded on the evening that we visited, but we didn't have to wait terribly long in line to pay or to access the food we were after. Most of the food was perfectly acceptable for the price (except for the drinks, which I don't think are worth the price, unless you like to drink a lot of soda).... More

I visited Golden Corral with my family and was a very good experience! My kids love Golden Corral. The waitress, Tonya, was excellent! She kept our table neat an clean. The food, as always, great variety for all. The restaurant was really full, however, the food never went out of stock. The employees were always changing the trays with fresh... More

My father wanted to eat at Golden Corral for his birthday, so we got there about 3pm to beat the dinner rush. Apparently everyone else had the same idea. It was so packed we could barely find a table to fit 7. The food want bad. As usual, the steaks were really hard to chew, even when I got med... More

Was here two weeks ago for Saturday night dinner. Typical Golden Corral. Great selection of food. Excellent attention from the server. But so crowded! Overall it delivered what was expected.

I go to Golden Corral occasionally for carryout; my last visit was July 1st at lunchtime. The buffet is always plentiful, and all the items that I have tried on recent visits taste quite good. For me, the food served nowadays at this restaurant is better than it was several years ago.
