I ate here a few years ago and it's definitely better now than then. The salad bar is very good. Also, the variety is just wonderful. There really is something for someone. The old southern standbys are also there. Those collard greens, squash and okra. The grilled meet is also great in the evenings. Nice variety of desserts also.

Went with a group of 9 for a late lunch early dinner, we were able to get the back room all to ourselves which made for an enjoyable visit. Many choices, all hot and very tasty, made it hard to choose which ones to try. Had not been to a buffet in over twenty years, but I am pretty sure... More

Good food, good service, avoid the sugar free desserts. They have a party room which worked out well for our group of 40-50 people. An easy way to get what you want to eat.

This is a very clean and well managed Golden Corral. The food is fresh and the pot roast is consistently great. Reasonable price with a wide choice of options. One warning, go with a reasonable menu plan. It is very easy to overeat and eat foods that don't agree together.

This is a fairly new restaurant. The service, food, management, and OWNER was great. We were on our way to Myrtle Beach for a King fishing tournament and stopped here due to the reviews and knowledge of the owner. Great food, Lee will give you great service, fantastic food, and at a great price. Today the owner, a very nice... More

The feed trough is predictable with their food quality. The food in this one was very very similar to any other feed trough. Which is perfectly fine with us

Just had a late lunch at this GC and as always found plenty of food choices. Added Shrimp Tacos were tasty. As always, our drinks were kept full and used dishes promptly removed by Kim. Thank you Kim.

I ate here with family on the way to Myrtle Beach and I was pleases with the cleanliness of the place and the friendliness of the staff. It has been years since I went to GC after a bad experience in Las Cruces, NM. This place was the opposite of that experience and we enjoyed the food and didn't feel... More

Thank you for your great employees! They cater to kids and this is very important to many. Kind service and grilled to order steaks! If you have kids, don't forget to ask for cotton candy in the desert section!
