Golden Corral is not only Branson's most expansive buffet, it's the biggest Golden Corral buffet in the world!  If you're thinking big doesn't always mean good, go ahead and change your thinking -- this buffet is large and deliciously in charge!  Even with the extensive list of meats, veggies, pastas, breads, desserts, and other dishes and food items, Branson's Golden Corral still takes the time to do wonderful things like cook real, honest-to-goodness mashed potatoes -- still takes the time to make specialty dishes from scratch -- and still takes the time to select the freshest fruits, vegetables, and meats.  With their on-site bakery, you can also rest assured that breads and baked goods like cakes, pies, and cookies are prepared with love, just like you're back in Grandma's kitchen!  Oh, and speaking of bakery items, we can't forget their famous, golden and buttered, chewy dinner rolls - just like with a certain potato chip, nobody can eat just one!  Whether it's a tasty cut of beef, a flaky fillet of fish, a slice of hot pepperoni pizza, or their customer favorite, Bourbon Street Chicken, there's no going wrong with anything you'll find on the bountiful and beautiful buffet of Branson happiness known as the Golden Corral!

Andrew Henry works in the Kitchen and I was very impressed! His work ethic plus the standard he was representing put the experience over the top! I have been to GC many times before and yes they have great cooks but this guy was all over the place in a thorough manner.. Highly impressed!

When you have shrimp on a skewer, please have two grills for them. Too many want them and they are GONE.steak was excellent!!!! We came at busy time but service good.

"Poor buffet set-up"

There were so many people that you couldn't get to any of the food except the salad bar. I have never been at a buffet where people would stand in line for a half hour to get their food...even when it's at the opposite end and by standing in line, they blocked all the other food causing others to not have access to it. Needless to say, we spent $38 for our meal and only got the salad bar. We also had to get our own plates and only got one drink refill. We will never go back to this one.

"I enjoyed it"

Went here twice. Last month and beginning of this month. Read some of the other reviews here and I gotta say my experience was not negative at all. All staff were very friendly and attentive. The food stayed fresh and was very well made; the cooks did a good job. Looking forward to my next visit.
We took our friends to Golden Corrak in Branson, Missouri for their birthday celebration. We were very disappointed: the food was not hot...not even lukewarm...the server, David, came to our table one time while were there, bringing my husband tea,...he did not ask the rest of us if we needed anything!!! Nor did he return during the course of our meal. Very disappointed in our visit.

"Only 1 real waitress?!"

I got there at 3:00 and someone finally checked on us at 3:30. A waitress that had just got there. She gave us excellent service and apologized for us not being served.other waitors and waitresses we're just visiting with each other and I never seen one check on any table. When our waitress walked in the door she went straight to work trying to fix everyone else's laziness. I felt terrible for her.

"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.
