The dining room is small compared to other Golden Corrals that I have visited. They have the salad bar, numerous food options including baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, corn, carrots, turnip greens, brussel sprouts, fresh grilled meats and desserts. They had cotton candy, on my visit but not the chocolate fountain. Very friendly and attentive staff.

Pretty good food. Every time they add much the prices go up. Even liking kids, the rug rats run wild, and no effort is made by management to curb the abuses. 'Nuff said?

I have to admit this place has come a long way in the last 6 months. Their fried chicken has almost always been very good but sometimes inconsistent. Their steak was most always nothing to write home about because it was the most inconvenient but lately it has been excellent. The chef who was on the grill knew how to... More

Glass doors were filthy with greasy hand and finger prints. Men's room was disgusting with urine and feces splatter. Salt and pepper shakers sticky from customer handling. Basic cleaning and sanitary measures ignored.

Between 1PM and 4PM seniors get a good value on LUNCH. For about $8 you get just about everything you could eat.
