Pleasant surprise!

We moved today so were out for dinner on a busy Saturday evening but it was early (445 p) First popular spot we stopped had a line up with 30 mins. wait or more so we moved on. Had a particular spot in mind but as I was driving there, I noticed the sign for the Golden Griddle and asked... read more

Breakfast at this restaurant used to be a favorite until about the last 5 years. Unfortunately the decor, food & presentation remain stuck in the wrong decade. Time for an update folks or its only a matter of time until the doors close forever.

The friendly staff greeted us when we walked in and showed us to our table right away. We were a group topping off the weekend of visiting friends and family before heading back home. The variety on the breakfast buffet was great. Finally Eggs Benedict on a buffet! Perogies and waffles were hits with the kids along with all the... More

Have not been to this location in about 8 years. The pancakes were thin and taste like they used water for the batter. I remember when they were fluffy and delicious. I use to visit at least once a week for lunch. I make better ones with pre-mix when I go camping. Anyway ... not to complain too much ...... More

The buffet was excellent, as was the service, and the foo is at a cheap cost. I will definitely visit again with my family or friends.

I haven't been here in years, and we decided to try the buffet on the weekend. I didn't see a price anywhere in the restaurant, but I just assumed like $10-$13. The food was okay, I though they would have more to choose from for breakfest. Server was nice, but the kitchen staff kept coming out to bring out plates... More

Always a nice little breakfast place. Nothing too special about it, but still a nice little treat. Pancakes are decent - hence their name!

My Mom and I just ate at the Golden Griddle after searching for a place with All Day Breakfast. Boy was that a big mistake! I ordered a simple 2 egg meal with a side of bacon, and she ordered a western omelet both of us were gravely disappointed with our food. Our server had the personality of old wallpaper,... More

Whenever we're passing through we make a side trip to this Golden Griddle--for the Eggs Benny at any time of the day. Not certain what the recipe is but they are so tasty. Love their Hollandaise sauce! Service is quick and pleasant. Coffee cup is always kept full. The kids ordered chocolate chip pancakes this time but were surprised when... More
