Golden Corral Port Orange

Posted by Kevin Kling on Thursday, October 20th, 2011 at 1:00pm.

New Port Orange Golden Corral will bring new jobs, new tastes, and an endless buffet to Port Orange, Florida.



Golden Corral will be opening on October 22, 2012 at 10:45am. A press release was just made available regarding the new Golden Corral location in Port Orange just off Dunlawton and close to Interstate 95.

Golden Corral Buffet & Grill proudly announces the opening of its newest restaurant, located at 907 Taylor Road in Port Orange, FL, on Monday, October 22, 2012, at 10:45 a.m. The new Port Orange Golden Corral will bring 120 new jobs to the community, which will include a mix of full-time and part time employees—including management, wait staff, line servers, and kitchen staff. The new restaurant is approximately 12,500 square feet in size and will seat 380 guests.

Along with home-style buffet favorites such as pot roast, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and steamed vegetables, the new Port Orange Golden Corral will showcase exhibition food preparation featuring cooked-to-order Sirloin steaks on the dinner buffet. It will also offer a variety of Asian dishes that are served on its Wok buffet, Italian dishes that are served on its Piazza buffet, Mexican dishes that are served on its Hacienda buffet, and seafood dishes that are served on its Lighthouse Seafood Bay buffet. In addition to the hot buffet items, the restaurant will feature a market-fresh salad bar, where guests may build their own salads from dozens of ingredients. Rounding out the buffet offering, a variety of cakes, pies, and homemade breads—including melt-in-your-mouth yeast rolls—will be baked fresh in-house and served on the Bakery Buffet and Bread Bar. The new Port Orange Golden Corral will also showcase a premiere dessert buffet, including a chocolate fountain (that flows all day, every day), freshly-spun cotton candy, and hand-dipped ice cream.

Besides its lunch and dinner buffets (which will feature more than 125 hot and cold food items), the new Port Orange Golden Corral will serve a Weekend Sunrise Breakfast with Steak Buffet from 7:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. each Saturday and Sunday. The Weekend Sunrise Breakfast with Steak Buffet will feature hand-carved Sirloin steak, made-from-scratch omelets, along with waking-up favorites such as scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns, pancakes, waffles, French toast, fresh fruit, a variety of juices, donuts, and homemade biscuits.

Hours of operation for the new Port Orange Golden Corral will be:

  • Monday – Friday, 10:45 a.m. – 10 p.m.
  • Saturday & Sunday, 7:30 a.m. – 10 p.m.

Lunch will be served Monday – Friday from 10:45 a.m. – 4 p.m. and from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday. Dinner will be served Monday – Saturday from 4 p.m. – close, and from 11 a.m. – close on Sunday.

As a complement to its every day family dining offering, the restaurant also has banquet facilities that will be available free of charge for groups and organizations in the area that choose to dine at Golden Corral.

And… Seniors who are ages 60 and over can enjoy Golden Corral’s Senior Early Bird Buffet—and a free beverage of their choice!—every Monday – Saturday from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. for only $6.99. Additional Senior discounts apply for other meal periods.

The new Port Orange Golden Corral is owned by local entrepreneur Eric Holm. It will be managed by Operations Director Jeff Cheatham, District Manager Maurice Booker, and General Manager Ryan Reynolds. Of the restaurant’s new opening, Holm says: “We are happy to bring the Golden Corral brand to Port Orange and we look forward to treating our friends and neighbors to a wide variety of top quality, home-style foods. So, for a great, family-friendly meal at a budget-friendly price, we invite you to stop by and to experience your new Port Orange Golden Corral today. We’ll treat you like family… guaranteed.”

So Kevin this is Monday, October 15, 2012, I have read all of the entries here reflecting a lot of enthusiasm from a great deal of people in and around Port Orange, Florida. With this said, do you have an idea as to when your doors might open to the public, (We're Hungry!) We can see that the building appears to be finished, the parking lot paved, and even the food trucks have made deliveries so, any idea?

Congratulations on your new store there Kevin Kling, and good luck going forward, I am quite sure you and your staff will do just fine minus the regular headaches of everyday responsibilities.

Lynn wrote: Love the new GC in Port Orange, FL..1 tip is to leave a note on your table when you go for more food or you may have to kick new ppl off your table when you return. Those arriving who just see an empty table & assume it's available. The note should say.this seat taken. This should be at all tables anyhow.

Kerry wrote: Had the same experience as others mentioned, when we went to the buffet our table was cleared and new ppl were seated. They were busy but their only response was we will try and find you another table...LOL. We set our plates down and walked out. I sent an email expressing our concern but no one had the courtesy to even respond!!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED in their PR skills, we have not been back since then.

Lynn Comstock wrote: I commented about leaving SEAT TAKEN at your table when you go the buffett or others might take it. Duff's Buffett in South Daytona has these at their tables so new ppl coming in won't take your seat. I love Golden Coral. Have been there several times. Most servers are very busy. They are all very nice. One morning for breakfast I was on my 2nd plate, No server. I went to the salad bar to ask for coffee.They were upset that patrons had to ask them for coffee because the server wasn't on the ball. Another server took care of me. Fawn was supposed to take care of me & eventually did. She hung around chatting & neglected other patrons. NOT A GOOD SERVER IMO. Other than that I always have a good experience.
