Having just arrived in town we were looking for a place to eat. Thought we'd give it a try and glad we did. Our service was great - attentive and very welcoming server. The food was generous portions , tasty , and reasonably priced. Also great decor to fit the Gold Rush theme.

Had a little one visiting with parents and decided on the Gold Rush. Went early and had a very nice server who was spot on. Hadn't been here for a couple of years and at that time must have hit an off day. Food (pulled pork, ribs, chicken) and all the sides were tasty and hot. It's such a big... More

Needing a break from the cookie cutter Sonny's BBQ in town I gave Gold Rush a shot. Combo platter with pulled pork just fabulous. The sides were so good I could have consumed double portions. Service was equally above average. You know some BBQ chefs in the back have the kitchen dialed in to put out this phenomenal food.

We thought it was just a rib joint but it was nuts. The waiters are flying around taking great care of everyone which I thought was so cool. We had babybacks and the best Mac and cheese ever! You get these huge tins for plates so you can make the biggest mess you want. PLEASE save room for the peanut... More

My husband loves a good BBQ place, and I enjoy it occasionally. Gold Rush is the closest restaurant to our rental home in Venice. Afterrying Sharkeys and Finns during our first week, we gave Gold Rush a try. I will usually have a pulled chicken, which they do not have on the menu. When I asked if they ever have... More

We visit Gold Rush several times when we spend the winter in Venice, and having arrived yesterday,we went there with 2 other couples for dinner. The spare ribs are meaty and absolutely delicious. They use a dry rub and add a little sauce at the end, a combination that works well. I have had ribs in a lot of places... More

Nice atmosphere. Kids menu are mostly $3.99. Really good with three choices of BBQ sauce on the table. Can't miss if you like casual BBQ dining.

We like BBQ and we loved this place! I ordered pulled pork and my husband ordered the all you can eat BBQ chicken. - both were great! The sides are absolutely wonderful. I don't normally order mac and cheese but theirs is homemade and as good or better than mine (lol). Seriously - it's the best. We also ordered the... More
