Golden Corral Port Orange

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.

Hello Everyone!

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.

#34 By Kevin Kling at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

Golden Corral will be opening this week. I hope to have the specific date very soon.


FYI - This is an independent real estate blog that has been posted to keep local Golden Corral fans updated with the progress of the new Port Orange location.

#35 By Kevin Kling at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

Take out your calendars and mark October 22, 2012 at 10:45am as the opening date for Golden Corral in Port Orange.

#37 By Darrell Martin at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM


Thank you for replying back, to my email questions, and for your information as it pertains to the opening of Golden Corral. I too read where Golden corral has announced to the public that they will open their doors on Monday, October 22, 2012 @ 10:45 AM. Thanks again Kevin, I certainly appreciate your service to the public.

#38 By tammy at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

#39 By Mary Jane Trauffer at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

Love Golden Corral...Inquired about Corral 2yrs ago, asking to have one built near New Smyrna Beach, Fl. I was thinking Daytona Beach. This is better, at Port Orange. Be going there Sunday.

#40 By vivian at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

thank you for all the info and updates

#41 By james at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

how much does it costs

#42 By Beege at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

Just came back from girls lunch out. Great variety of food but found some vegs that should have been hot were cold. Cabbage was way under cooked. All in all it was a good time. The staff ruched round filling everything up just before it things were gone. Very nice waitresses.

#43 By De De at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

went for breakfast last Sunday, what a TREAT!! Everyone was nice, food was the best, even the managers were working. The food was fresh at all times, I can't say enough about it. Clean, I just wish we had one in Ormond. Can't wait to go back!

#44 By Linda Poynter at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

We just ate at the new Golden Corral in Port Orange. It was the Veterans Day Appreciation dinner. I was amazed at how well they took care of the huge amount of people that they served. The did a wonderful job of moving everyone through in a pleasant and efficient way. The food was excellent.

#45 By Lynn at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

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.

#46 By Kerry at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

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.

#47 By Marie at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

We love it here! had a wonderful young woman Fawn as our server, she was delightful! The food was delicious, lots of options, something for everyone! We cant wait to go back!

#48 By Lynn Comstock at 6/27/2020 6:07 AM

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.
