Okay can someone please tell me why it is such an issue for barber/beauty shops to have an aquarium due to state laws but yet dogs are allowed to sit up at the table and eat off a plate at Golden Corral? Every Sunday morning a group of about 5 or 6 come in with their little lap dog and set it up at the table with them. This is not a seeing eye dog.... its their pet!!! I called and complained and was assured this would not happen again and that the manager was unaware this had been going on. All of the waitress' knew about it! Anyway, dog was back in there again last Sunday. Will never go to this restaurant again!!!!

Why do people treat animals like people? I have 2 small dogs which I adore but animals have their place and a public restaurant is not one of them. I cnat stand to see someone carrying their pooch into the store in their handbags either. It makes me sick. People have lost their minds!

Anyone who lets their dawg eat the food at Golden Corral should be charged with animal cruelty. That thar place ain't got no good mustard & biscuits and they ain't got no good potted meat either. Umm-hmm.

it is quite illegal but it isnt surprising. Maybe you should take a picture with a camera phone and send it to the health department. They might get shut down over it.

Big deal. Is the dog bothering you or eating off your plate? I bet you do more whining than the dog. Sure, it is not legal, but why make such a big deal of it? If you want to complain about something, focus on the lame salad bar, the patrons who yap on their phones, or the high prices.

I knew when they passd that law that it was gonna get abused. Now anyone can bring an animal along if they claim they need it for emotional support. Pleeaassee, give me a break. And yeah, Nordistrom it is a big deal. Dogs are carriers of diseases and they tend to sh*t and p*ss whenever they feel like it too. Only service dogs are on their best behavior and they can be unpredictable, too. They also stink and yap. What if someone accidentally gets a little too close and they bite someone? Little lap dogs are notorious for being nervous.

I'd sooner eat with a dog than with my co-workers. Not much difference.

There is a bunch of 'Rollin Thunder' motorcycle club that eats @ Golden Corral. The big guy with the CHICHUAUHA (spelling?) is the one with the dog - the dogs name is 'Apple'- so you heard it here.

Well numbnuts you'd never trust me then cause the best person I ever met was a dog and I'd put my dog's life above yours any day of the week.

The only thing wrong with this restaurant is the management! Their wait staff are all hard working and run from the time they clock in until they leave. They are always short staffed...three today on a busy Sat. It's also so hot in there because the manager refuses to turn the air past 78 because, "people tend to eat less when it's warm." He treats his employees like dirt...my husband and I have noted this on every visit. Also when you enter the front door the moldy smell from the rug greets you. I'm going to contact their corporate office. The food is good,prices not bad and staff very nice and efficient. They just need new management.

Golden Corral is nasty to begin with. I would rather see a dog eat than most of the people there who eat like pigs.
