Food seemed ok until some kid sneezed in the pot roast. Told the ""chef"" about it and nothing was done. Can't eat there since. Pros: price Cons: food/cleanliness

Don't understand the negitive remarks 6/20/2011

I don't understand the negative reviews here. I eat here every chance I get. Being retired on a limited income this place is just what I need if I want to go out. I have never found anything wrong with the food. It is much better then most buffets. Staff is friendly, helpful, and efficient. I think some people may think the food and atmosphere should be like in a high class establishment but in reality this buffet is superior to many family restaurants. more

Favorite 8/14/2010

The Food is GREAT with a great selection,the staff is courteous,friendly,and willing to please.I'd eat there more often if I were working so I have to pace myself. Golden Corral IS my favorite place to go. more


Good: I wished I could say that I liked anything, but I can't say that for this trip in there and the trip before that, probably won't go back. Bad: The food was dried out, my husband had a steak and it wasn't fit to eat, I used to love their meatloaf and it was so dried out and almost like burnt on one side from being under the lights it was awful. I would also like to comment on the cleanliness of the place, it was dirty from the floors to the counters, the carpet had food everywhere. Had to stand in line to get a table for close to 10 minutes with drinks in hand feeling like you were in the way.. Improvements: To have to turn people away before they pay giving them a wait time and a waiting area instead of feeling like you are in a mess hall waiting to scramble for a table. We paid 70.00 for 5 of us to eat, the 10.99 for the dinner is fine but it should include your drink, almost 14.00 per plate is ridiculous and have to flag a waitress down to get a refill because they are so over worked that they can't get to customers who are also expected to leave a tip. Other: Don't think we would come back there for dinner, hoping that corporate will step in and realize how poorly this golden corral is ran, it maybe making money but the Health Department really should come on in and take a look. Maybe the fire dept too, do believe that they are over capacity of people in one building at one time.. more

rude supervisor 11/29/2009

We used to love to go here but the last time we went we had steak that we couldnt eat so we decided to take it home to see if the dog could chew it. The manager rushed to our table and said if you take that steak out she would have to charge us by the pound so we gave it back to her and explained that we had paid for it just couldnt bite it. She paid no attention and treated us like we were thiefs. more

Nasty Food, No Nutrition Info 11/24/2009

I used to eat here on rare occasion with a friend who lives to eat, rather than eats to live. One of the redeeming factors was that there used to be some healthy choices and nutrition information posted above those. That allowed me to at least choose lower calorie food so I could save my calories for good food when I got home. Last time I went we were in a hurry. The place was excessively crowded. A table near us was so loud that no one wanted to eat near them and heaven forbid the staff suggest that they lower their voices. The only thing remotely healthy was a baked potato, plain, or salad. All the other food was covered in grease. There are still sugar free options, which is probably for the clientele who has eaten him/herself into Type II Diabetes. Take your money down the street to the funky Chinese Buffet on State and 4th. Excellent service, healthy FRESH options, interesting food that has great flavor, and the scary filthy guy who sits in the middle of the restaurant inhaling plate after plate of steak won't eat there. Not enough steak. more

Great value for what you can eat! 7/9/2008

I simply love buffet. And Golden Corral is one of my favorites. It's sad that I live so far away from Marysville so I can't visit too often. Steaks and other eateries are very good. Care about taste? Then you should avoid buffet at all. If you want buffet & superior taste at the same time.... that will cost you vicinity of $35 per person buffet. Golden Corral is simple worth the visit and great taste for buffet. Just compare this to Old Country Buffet -- this is easy. more

Pleasant surprise except for dessert cakes 6/14/2008

I've dined at the Marysville Golden Corral several times and the food has always been acceptable if not gourmet. The dessert section however is inferior. Cakes and pastries look good, but lack flavor. Pick fruit selections from the salad salad bar tasty fresh fruit instead. Featured are good steaks cooked rare to medium rare. Steak is rarely found on an all you can eat buffet so moderately priced. Salad bar is average and unimaginative. Usually available are sauteed onions and mushrooms. Occasional hush-puppies, corn bread, and other simple good food. Nearby Chinese buffet is also good, but, there's no steak. If you want to know "where's the beef"? It's at the Golden Corral, with decent prices for Seniors before 4 p.m, and not bad afterwards either. Beverages are omplimentary, unlike other buffets in the area. Table service for all beverages. Waitresses work hard, deserve a tip. Management is excellent, with hands on owners. Just went there this evening, and the steaks, ribs, shrimp, hush puppies, garlic cheese biscuits, etc were quite good. more

Great food and good atmosphere. A fun place to eat. 1/2/2007

I've been to the Golden Corral several times, and find it to be the best value around. The food is excellent. The owners always seem to be there to handle any problems. The previous complaint of $50 being too much for a family? They obviously don't eat out very much. The average buffet now-a-days is $10 to $18 a person. The average reastaurant will cost a family of 6 $75 and up. The Golden Corral is excellent. Try it for yourself. more

Expensive, Good Selection, Don't ask For Well Done, Crowded 10/1/2006

Every time we have dined at Golden Corral it has been very crowded. Expect a wait to get in; you pay first, select seats, and then visit the buffet. Selection at the buffets is good, offering a variety for all ages. If you have a large appetite (revisit the buffet multiple times) this establishment might be a good deal. Our family unit finds the pricing to be high considering the small appetites we have. A chef watches over the grill, but frustrates when asked to prepare steak "well done" and will make the customer wait a long time. If you are familiar with American style buffets, and prefer this type of eatery, Golden Corral is worth trying. Food quality is average, pricing is high, facility is crowded, wait staff is friendly, and parking is plentiful. Overall an okay experience that is acceptable for the occasional dine. more

stuff yourself with mediocre food 3/27/2006

I am amazed at how crowded the Golden Corral is! We went for the first time and it cost our family $50 to eat here. Not exactly a bargain! The food had the problem of looking tasty and tasting like nothing. They have a chef who mans the grill and will make you a burger or steak to your specifications. They also highlight a different thing each day. The day we went was Mexican day so we got to have burritos, tamales, fajitas in addition to the regular buffet items. One thing that's nice is they post nutritional information right on the label for the food. They have a large dessert buffet that looks delicious and tastes less than stellar. Stick with the soft serve ice cream! We got there right at the change over from lunch to dinner. My son was very sad to see the chicken nuggets taken away, apparently they're not a dinner item. We won't be back. more

Then go to the Golden Corral. It's not the food there that is bad... there's just some questionable characters in there. more
