“Husband's fav!!”

We eat at Golden Corral at least once, usually more when we are in Branson. It's quick, cost efficient, clean, and such a variety of food if you leave hungry it's your fault!!

“Very Tasty Steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2015
We enjoyed our meal here very much, especially since we don't have any Golden Corral restaurants near us. This one was one of the best I've visited. There was plenty of food, and the steak was very good, rivaling what I'd expect to get in a good restaurant. The salad bar was also very complete and fresh. And the rolls are outstanding.

I think I heard its the largest Golden Corral out there and some nights they feature live music. Fresh food and great service. Changing tables in both bathrooms is a plus for families. There are 10% off coupons out there in local publications and Branson coupons online

Still a great place to eat!”

I've been here several times over the years and it's always great. We had the same server, Tiffany, over the summer (and on our last visit a few days ago) and that girl is always smiling and amazingly kind! The food is really good, it is less crowded now due to Branson's season being over but regardless it's 5 stars even when busy!!

enjoyed the buffet very much. something for everyone. and the best part about dining there is you get to see a great performance with Barbara Fairchild, and her husband Roy.

“Awesome Sunday Dinner”
Reviewed April 3, 2013
I dined here for Sunday dinner and really enjoyed a variety of well prepared foods like grilled sirloin, prime rib, fried (huge) shrimp and catfish plus a lot of accompanying sides. Although the restaurant was filled with guests, service was attentive and well timed (drinks, used plate removal). I qualified for the Senior discount (ask for it if you're age 55 or older) which was a pleasant surprise. If you like a lot of choices and quantity of freshly prepared foods, this place is a super value.

“Rolls are heavenly”

Wonderful buffet filled with anything that you could want. The service is outstanding and the food is excellent. They have a special price for seniors. The rolls are just to die for. They are worth the trip!

“Oh My Goodness.....Yummy”
Reviewed March 26, 2013
This buffet was GREAT! Steaks were wonderful - unfortunately, we visited on a Monday night, so we didn't get to try the prime rib :( The service was great and there was a very wide variety of foods to choose from. Prices were very affordable. We will eat here again. The only thing we did not like about this place is the pressure to attend a vacation planning seminar on our way out the door. We had just enjoyed a very filling meal and did not really want to deal with that.

“Good enough to go back twice in one trip!”

Reviewed January 1, 2013
We hadn't planned on going to Golden Corral on this trip...but it was pouring out and we didn't want to walk the Landing to go to the place we planned so decided to give Golden Corral a shot. We were so glad we did!! It was so good. Mom had a little trouble because it was so big she had a hard time walking from one end to the other because she isn't very steady on her feet and this buffet is VERY long. But the food is good!! They have a little bit of everything. I thought the steaks were a little salty but good. It was fun watching him grill all those steaks. I really enjoyed the chocolate fountain. It was fun covering my strawberries and stuff with the chocolate.
Then we decided to spend an extra night in town so we needed another breakfast...so we decided to go back and see what they had to offer at breakfast time. This time mom used her wheelchair and enjoyed it much better. Breakfast was good too! I think I liked the dinner better...but it was still really good. A little bit of everything!
I was very impressed with the staff and how helpful they were with my mom. I really appreciated their patience and time they spent making sure my mom was comfortable and got what she wanted. They went above and beyond because she had special needs and they met those needs and then some.
We will go back to Golden Corral in Branson!!

“Best Buffet and Great Desserts”
Reviewed December 18, 2012
We have eaten at several restaurants that had buffets, but this one is by far the best one for selections at the buffet. The rolls are to die for and the boiled cabbage is the best I have found anywhere. The dessert bar is filled with every kind of dessert you can imagine! The carrot cake and a chocolate chess icebox pie were outstanding, as was a small coconut macaroon cookie.


“New Management. GREAT CHANGE!!!”

Back in 2006 I would completely agree with malena c.'s review. It was a great restaurant that started going downhill. I am a local. The place was clean in the late 90's up until around 2005 or 2006 then, it seem to change overnight. Restrooms dirty, food burned, empty pans on buffet, service horrible and overall a dirty place. We ate there about once or twice a week until then. Between 2005 and 2008 we went once a year to give it a chance. It got worse every time. Then last fall we went in and the place was different. Register girl was smiling, waitresses happy, managers visiting customers. Cook grilling steaks was super friendly and the food was great. The place was CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN including restrooms. Someone said they had a new manager that was there back in the 90's. I can tell. WE LOVE IT. Thanks for the change. Now we eat there almost every week.

“Yummy Buffet!”

 This review is for: Golden Corral

While in Branson on vacation my family and I went to Golden Corral http://www.goldencorral.net/menu/hot.asp for lunch one day. We were very hungry, and we were not disappointed one bit in the abundance of food choices or the taste of the food.


"Best Golden Corral"

I have been to over a dozen Golden Corrals but this is the best by far. Ate there last night. Prime rib and shrimp special. Prime Rib was tender. Waitress friendly. Bathrooms were cleaner than any other one I have been in.

"Best Dinner Buffet in Branson"

I’ve tried a lot of buffets in Branson. For a dinner buffet you can’t beat this one...Golden Corral never disappoints, You can’t go wrong eating here....other buffets in town are a crap shoot...sometimes okay and others it’s like garbage....but this buffet is always great

Reviewed on January 21, 2011

Always great food. I have ate for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even Thanksgiving and the foods always hot and good.

We had our 2009 reunion at this facility and every member of the family was commenting on the service, food and convenience! The closed in room was most accommodating which provides for an opportunity to conduct a nice program. When you look around and every type of food is available along with all the desserts, how can you go wrong. We ate until we burst!!! I look forward to enjoying this facility in the future and if you want a location with great food, reasonable price - don't look any further than the Golden Corral in Branson!!!

This has to be the best buffet we have ever been at. Food is great and entertainment also. Will go back as soon as I digest all the food available. Just cannot believe it.

"A great place for a real meal"

I love this place. You can choose from real food and have healthy choices fresh as you like them. My son always loves to eat here and I know he is getting a good meal. Best of all I don't have to cook for a night! We love the hot rolls! Every time you get one its fresh and hot!


This a fun restaurant!

Best Golden Corral I've eaten at! More variety and huge selection!

The family had spent the whole day at silver dollar city... Came here and they accommodated 17 of us in a short period of time... And they were busy! Very friendly wait staff. The food was very good and fresh.

Highly recommended for a buffet meal!
The food was good. The food was hot. It was not representative of something that had been sitting out for a long period of time. If it was supposed to be moist, it was moist. Overall it was run very well.


I can tell you two things that rock!
