I love a buffet! I like that Golden Corral has grill-to-order options. Today, this GC food was not as good as other GC's I've visited. Fish is a difficult item for a buffet line because it cooks quickly, and overcooks if not served immediately. Some...More

The women's bathroom is reason enough to skip this "buffet for gluttons". It was smelly and unclean. As for the food, bring your insulin & defibrillator unless you have the willpower of a super model. The good news is that the staff is wonderful, accommodating,...More

It's a buffet ok! $12 a person so you could go nuts or you could have a pretty reasonable 3 course meal and not go home feeling like a Christmas turkey. As far as buffets go it really was ok. Go for a fresh salad...More

Food appears to be fresh. Employees are constantly refreshing the buffet. The lines do get a little crowded during peak times. You should consider eating early in the day. Their omelets on the breakfast bar are excellent.

All you can eat steak! Need I say more? Great variety. I definitely ate my money's worth in steak and shrimp alone. I will continue to eat here as often as I can. Fair price for all you can eat.

Stopped here about 2:30 for a late lunch, early dinner on a Friday afternoon. Clarisa was assigned to our table and was friendly and attentive. Food was tasty (better than the Peoria one) and there was a good variety.
