    First let's talk about the restaurant itself... it's tired and worn down. Many materials and surfaces in bad shape and the rug smells very rank. Ladies room was not very clean and trashcan needed emptying. Then the serving stations... I could see dirty floors in the prep areas behind and although some of the customers are pigs and were spilling and making a mess, it was taking too long to get cleaned up. The food in many trays needed to be replenished and some replaced. Meatloaf very old and dried out. Veggies sitting in water were salty and so soggy they were lie baby food. Salad was the best option but lettuce tasted like it was washed in some kind of solution. Desserts minimal and not even close to the selection they used to have. All fillings and creams etc tasted very processed. Lastly, the service! Although friendly our server couldn't be more obnoxious if she tried. Loud brash and really not very attentive. Tables are cramped and with four of us (not related) around one we were way too close for comfort with no elbow room. This place to me is just a low quality feeding stable! Never again.

    The food we ate was quite good but the buffet had a lot of items missing and some looked like they'd be sitting for a long time. Restroom was filthy and so glad I went AFTER I had eaten. Servers very friendly but management should be ashamed of how they let the restroom get that bad. It didn't happen quickly so had not been checked for a long time.

    I brought my sister and granddaughter to The Worst Golden Corral experience on Friday July 23 2021. The restaurant wasn’t very busy, however the tables were dirty. The garden bar was empty and messy. I always begin my dinner with a salad and this day I had to skip it completely. Moved onto the soup bar and there were no spoons, after several attempts I was brought a plastic spoon for my now cold soup. The plates and silverware were dirty. I had to sort through several to find a clean one. The dessert counter was empty with empty pie plates and crumbs, desserts dropped all over. I attempted several times to get a dessert. The ice cream machine was only serving vanilla. The hot fudge didn’t work. The cotton candy machine was dirty and they said they didn’t have time to clean it. They kept putting plain cake with whip cream out as a dessert.

    A big fail in my book! First off the restaurant needs a deep clean. It smells, greasy smeared glass, floor sticky and restroom dirty. The food did not look appealing at all and although many people were piling their plates to the ceiling I couldn't find anything of quality to put on mine, and what I did have tasted bland or too salty and was overcooked. Server was like a zombie and overall a truly awful dining experience that left no reason to ever return or to recommend.

    Can't say i enjoyed it here.... just walked around looking for something to get but nothing looked good, and what i did get didn't taste very good. Even the cones for the ice cream were stale. Server was OK however we thought the restaurant looked very 'tired' and in need of some care. Men's room was not very clean. Expensive for what you get.

    So, we had very good service and the server was friendly and made sure plates were cleared quickly, but we just didn't enjoy the food and found it difficult to find something we liked. The ladies room was dirty and after using I just couldn't eat anything anymore. They're making an effort to transition right now but for us it's a big fail! Far far better places to spend your money at in Palm Coast and get much better food.

    They're doing a good job at handling the COVID restrictions but it's a lot different here now. It's now more cafeteria style than buffet and items are limited. All self serve has gone including ice cream machine, etc. Some of the food wasn't so good and appeared to of been sitting under the heat lamps for a long time. I know they're trying to make a buffet restaurant work but it's just not happening right now. You're much better off going to a regular menu/sit down restaurant.

    Went for first time since pandemic and they're making big efforts to be open with a buffet by requiring customers use single use gloves and wear a mask, but unfortunately only about half the customers had a mask and some reused gloves. Staff hand you plates which is nice and were seen always cleaning all areas. Food was mixed with some tasting nice and fresh and some tasting like they were left overs. We really didn't feel too safe in here and not the fault of Golden Corral but for the other customers. I'm not recommending this restaurant until after COVID is such a threat.

    Big efforts by GC and staff to keep everyone safe that I was impressed with and they seem to be getting that part right. The food was good but did have a few misses particularly with temperature (too cold). Couple of meets chewy as well. But overall we had a good meal and thought it was good value for the money.

    Huge variety of mostly low quality foods. Not one items particularly tasted great with most average at best and tasting like it came from cans, freezers and microwaves. Lady serving was really good though and helped to brighten an otherwise very dull meal. Definitely better choice in Palm Coast than this.

    This place won't win any awards for gourmet food, but you do get a big selection of reasonable items that taste quite good. Desserts are really awesome as well. Dining area is not so nice but if you arrive hungry you can definitely get your money's worth.

    No consistency. I have been there and everything is fresh and clean and staff efficient, and another time I go the food is low, dried up, the buffet bars are a mess, and staff not being very helpful. It also often smells moldy inside and I think the carpet needs replacing. I also hate the colored plastic plates... they make me feels like I'm in kindergarten.

    Huge buffet with tons of choices. Not exactly the best quality but good value for the money. Items can be a hit or miss but we usually find plenty to eat. Desserts are good. Atmosphere could do with improvement and service spotty depending on where you sit. Bets place to feed a hungry family that isn't too fussy about what they eat.

    This is like old peoples food! A throw back from the 70's and 80's where quantity mattered more than quality and everything is cooked for people with dentures. Food was either too salty or completely under seasoned, mostly over cooked, and desserts just way too sugary. People were pushing and shoving to get to their steaks and overall we found it a very unappetizing experience. Prices OK if you want to binge feed. Server brash. Atmosphere tense. I wish I could find something positive to say. Just not my thing, but the masses seem to enjoy it. Sorry, but I tried.

    Bleh! This place is nothing but quantity over quality. Here you see very large people with very large portions of below average food. With about 100 buffet items I struggle to find something good to eat. Even the bread rolls were soggy and greasy on top. Atmosphere feels like a prison canteen! Not too cheap either!

    Highlight of visit: The exit!

    Not a kind review by Paul about the diners at Golden Coral, however, I have to agree that this place is just vast quantities of awful food. I've never been to a buffet that had so many choices but I still couldn't find anything that I liked. Everything was so over cooked, very salty or extremely sweet. The salad tasted like it was washed in chemicals and cooked vegies were very soggy. It has the atmosphere of a school cafeteria and for the cost, you get a lot of very bad food and very little good food. Pass this place and do your stomach and cholesterol level a favor.

    Anytime you see an all you can eat buffet you will always find a gathering of many seriously overweight people. They tend to gyrate to these places like bees to honey. The food is awful.. BUT...there's a lot of it. That's what attracts them. The volume and the fact that they have half way decent deserts. People become obese by eating a lot of deserts.

    Have been to this location many times in the past always had good selection and properly maintained items on the buffet. Not sure what happened in the last few weeks but tonight was by far the worst I have seen. No selection really to chose from... no shrimp and pulled pork was dry and had very little BBQ sauce on it for a Friday night I expected way better guess it's time to try a different venue for dinner.

    Golden corral has gone downhill over the past months. The lunch buffet was poor. foods were salty and over breaded. Chicken was undesirable, most servings were starch related. Fish entree was bland, If you don't want the chicken, there isn't much else in the way of a main entree.

    Deserts were still its strong point
