PEMBROKE PINES, FLORIDA -- My daughter went into the Golden Corral on 3/11/12 about 3:30pm and immediately after leaving, she started throwing up and having diarrhea. This continued half the night and stomach pains continued until I rushed her to emergency to get I.V., antibiotics and pain killers etc. I have attempted to call the manager and was put on hold and hung up on. I will be calling headquarters today.
KINGMAN, ARIZONA -- Unfortunately under the new management at the Golden Corral in Kingman, Az., the restrooms are not kept clean. They appear not to have been completely cleaned for some time. This has been going on since the change in managers about 5 months ago. I was also told by the employees that it was a corporate decision to no longer place toilet seat covers in the women's bathrooms. I would think that this would be against the health code especially in a restaurant.
ORANGE PARK, FLORIDA -- Yesterday, November 11, we ate at Golden Corral on Blanding Blvd, Orange Park, Fl at 1:00 in the afternoon. I was eating my salad, loaded with vegetables, crab salad, and fruit and suddenly could not bite through an object in my mouth. I pulled out a piece of waxy wire (twisty tie?) from my mouth, wrapped in spinach. I was disgusted and gave it to the waitress. She said she'd bring it to the manager, and then we never heard back from either one of them. Insult to injury.
The cashier gave me a senior citizen's discount! I am nowhere close to that age. I found out later when I got home and glanced at the receipt. The service was pretty bad, too. The waitress didn't offer me a refill on my coffee. I don't think I'll be going back there again. I'm not going to be insulted.
MIAMISBURG, OHIO -- A couple of weeks ago my husband and I decided to go out to eat. Something we don't do to often, so I was all excited and was happy to go. So to make a long story short, as we was handed our plates for the buffet bar, I always run my hand over them to make sure food is not left on them and make sure they are clean. So I ran my hand over the bottom of my plate and needless to say I had caked mashed potatoes on the bottom of it, I was upset and ask for another plate. She said sure, so I was handed another one, of course this one had some food items on it also, so I ask to speak to a manager.
Well I had to go to the bathroom so when I was gone the manager come and spoke to my husband about it, she said she was sorry for the problem and would try to make it right. Well if you ask me I think I deserve a free meal for all my trouble, well maybe next time I will get one. Who knows, just beware and watch for them dirty plates. You might get a bonus with your meal.
HAMILTON, OHIO -- We ate at the Golden Corral on Main Street in Hamilton, Ohio, last night and our waitress, a 20 year old, was rude. She constantly neglected our table, although she served other tables in the area where we sat. She neglected to give us refills on our drinks and forgot to bring my mom her coffee. To add insult to injury, some guy who was at the restaurant was messing with sister who was also there and spent 10 minutes talking to a co-worker who was taking her break and whining about that man messing with her sister and her hating her job instead of serving us.
We were going to get the manager but the manager was in his office and never came out. I want reprimanded for her irresponsible, lousy service and her rude, unprofessional service and if she does that again, fired. I also want the manager reprimanded for not checking on us. If he reprimanded for her rude behavior, good for him. However, the Hamilton Golden Corral needs an overhaul since some of the service we received on a few visits we made there has been horrible. I enjoy GC and its food but next time we eat at a GC, we will eat at another location rather than the Hamilton location.
