Golden CorralRude Customer Service

After posting my previous complaint( regarding my previous experience on march 1 2020 7:30pm at london kentucky location), I was contacted by golden corral customer service.
They had left a message and I just called today to follow up with them and explain my complaint.
To make a long story short, I was being as nice as I can be with them, very cordial and kind, and I was greeted with the rudest customer service I have EVER experienced in my life! They were throwing ethnic slurs, suggesting I should have handled the situation by physically hurting those around me. On top of that, they insulted my family (I had explained that I was visiting an elderly relative near this location who was in a nursing facility where some residents had signs of corona)!

I shouldn't be treated this way after being a faithful customer to your business for YEARS!

      Golden Corralhad no waiter, got my own drink

      Sunday, November 3, about 12:30;
      I was seated and the food was good. I had no waiter come to my table at all. Therefore I had to get up and get my own water refil. So I brought my glass to the drink dispensery, and someone there, a young man, took my glass and refilled it. Now, I walk with a walker and needed both hands to walk with it. Did he offer to bring the water to my table? NO! He warned me to "be careful" in a rather superior manner instead, handing me the glass to carry for myself. Yes, I was OFFENDED. He disparaged me because I was handicapped, instead of helping me. with something that he as a waiter should have done for me to begin with. No one offered me a cup of coffee to finish the meal and I could not flag a waiter down.
      I have a receipt that remains unsigned, and I think I should be able to use it to get a free dinner.

        Golden Corralfound bug or baby roach in my salad

        In my visit to the buffet on jun 27th 2019 we were faced with a situation that violates sanitation regulations.
        I found what looked like a bug or baby roach in the salad, witch is a sign of luck of sanitation in the location, careless employee and that the state inspector are not doing there job or the possibility that they are corrupt .
        The manager refunded the transaction and apologized and it do feel sorry for her to have to deal with that ( I don't think it's her first time tho ), the place employ many people but need respect and care about public safety and the quality of the food they serve .

          Golden Corralfood service

          There was a roach crawling on the dessert bar along with dead flies in the pies. The food was very old for dinner and the food wasnt being checked on every 15 mins. The rolls were hard like a rock. I showed the waitress and she removed the items that had the bugs on them. Then the waitress have me a free dinner card for next visit, but there was three in my party and the manager him or herself never came to our table to apologize.

                why did you have to mention that the restaurant was full of African American families? what did that have to do with anything? if you don't want to eat around different races... eat at home

              Golden Corralfood & service

              I went to Golden Corral located in Inverness, Florida. I had not been there for about 12 years or so, took me and my 13 year old daughter to eat at buffet. We got there probably around little after 7 or so. I used to go there years ago but have not been and because my daughter has never eaten there I figured to a good idea and take her. She loves chocolate covered strawberries and heard few people talk about it. Paid 35.00 at the register. Went to go eat and look at buffet, was practically going around in circles because the foods looked terrible. Looked very old, can tell been sitting in the buffet for a long period, some foods had crust because it was drying up. Only thing I grabbed was some fried chicken and cat fish fillet and baked fish, which sort of looked like they just put it out. We both didn't enjoy anything that we thought would be tasty. So, she even decided to go get some salad to say that maybe that will taste okay and fill her up some. Come to find out, she said it tasted horrible too. The only thing she ate was some chocolate covered strawberries. She tried some cookies and ended up spitting up and discarding because she said it tasted like someone who baked and didn't use any sugar. I am usually the type of person who goes to buffets and usually it is the other people waiting for me to finish eating but at the Coral, I tried to eat a drumstick and some rice and couldn't even eat that. I was so disappointed that I was thinking to ask for a refund, I have never gone any restaurant and want to ask for refund. Because my daughter ate those strawberries, I didn't bother wanting to ask. The waitress came to us twice. Once when she seated us and other is when she filled my daughters drink. When I went there long time ago, I went frequently and went back thinking and expecting same service as well as good food. Sadly disappointed to say that I will not be going back. I don't know who is running that place but all appearance of the whole restaurant looks and feel like total trash. I felt like I was over dressed even though I wasn't, that is the type of restaurant and environment vibe it felt like. Not pleasant at all. I left the waitress 5 dollars so in all spent 40 dollars to buffet meal traveling 15 miles to go eat there. I do not mind traveling for I travel 45 mins to go eat at an all u can eat Chinese buffet. and their buffets are cheaper and bigger with foods that are appealing even if I don't know what it is. Someone needs to go and create a different expectations with employees, food as well as the whole facility. I have never in my 49 years wanted refund for food. If anyone is interested in contacting me, my email is [protected]@yahoo.com

                Golden Corralthe food /service

                The staff was really rude and disrespectful when I asked for a drink one of the workers refused to give me one. When I asked to speak with the manager she told me "no he's not here ". When I asked for the corporate number so that I can file a complaint they refused and tried to give me their email address. When I asked her about it the worker told me quote on quote " to get tf out of her face".
