We stayed in Clinton as a hub to visit several attractions. Our hotel was near Golden Girls so we ate there several times. All of the food was great. The resteraunt was very clean. The service was fantastic. If in this area again I would detour a bit to eat here again.

Clean place, explained all covid cleaning and distancing procedures. Very friendly staff. All of our food was good and hot. The broasted chicken was amazing. The pies were great. And obviously made in-house. We pulled in because of the name, it was worth it.

I was actually genuinely surprised. I've always loved the TV show, the Golden Girls. That's the reason that made this restaurant attractive... Even knowing there is no real connection, I had to try it. I am not the greatest fan of southern comfort food, but this was really good. I had the roast beef, which was tender. My favorit ... read more

Living in Charleston SC I've had some great southern fried chicken, but golden girls Broasted Chicken was the best fried chicken I've ever had. Great flavor, amazingly juicy, without being greasy. Mashed potatoes were disappointing but that chicken, wow!

I can usually tell how good a local spot is by how crowded the parking lot is. This was a really crowded lot, and for good reason. I have almost given up on trying chicken fried steak at new places because few places do it...More ... read more

So good. I had Thursday special of roast beef and two sides. Let's just say okra and corn delicious. Rolls and corn bread melt in your mouth deliciousness and hot like they should be. Brewed tea good. Only complaint, Pepsi products. Can't go that route. Deserts are mostly made fresh on Fridays, one or two not made there. Price is not ... read more

We came here for an early dinner. I was very impressed. We ordered the fried mushrooms as an appetizer. Very good.
We each had the special. I had the ham dinner and my husband had the pot roast.
Everything was really good except dont get to fried fritter. Very bland.
Service was outstanding!!

Fantastic local place to get great food and friendly service. We splurged for a Tuesday morning breakfast that was as delicious as it was fun of calories. LOL. Our server was prompt and delivered our food exactly as we ordered it. The place was clean and well equipped with condiments. Well done.

A great family restaurant.
A great family restaurant. Went today at lunch and decided to have breakfast. The Mexican omelet with bacon was wonderful. My friend had the broasted chicken that he loved. Service was excellent and there is plenty of parking and seating.
