This was one of the nicest Golden Corral's we have been to. It looks like a newer one. We had the most friendly wait staff. Chris & Brian were awesome. If you go ask to be in one of their sections you won't be disappointed.

Got together with some Railroad friends that has retired. They get together every two months at Golden Corral on Orphanage Rd in Ft. Wright, Ky. The service is always good for the reasonable price. Due to my work Schulte I don't always attend.

Oh my gosh. The smell of fresh hot food. $13.99 for all the food you want to eat. Prime Rid is sooooooo good. And of course the steak and chicken is great. All the vegetables are just like the way it should tastes. The seafood...More

Golden Corral is (usually) my favorite buffet restaurant, so I offered to take my family to this one while we were visiting the area. My son and his wife, who live nearby, suggested several alternate locations without actually saying "don't go there." I should have...More
