There were four of us for dinner, all ribs and BBQ fans...The wine list is limited and the better wines are only by the bottle. The Sutter Home house wine was just OK, served in small bottle like on an airplane. Service was prompt and friendly. The place is very noisy, lots of screaming kids, but clean...Three had the beef...

I have eaten at Goldrush many times and I have never been disappointed. One of the best things about this restaurant is the variety of dishes that they offer. The atmosphere is rustic and reminds me of the days of the chuck wagon. Love it!

Restaurant is casual, very busy during snowbird season. All I can say is YAM PATTIES! They are to die for! I could make a meal on these!

I'm resident of Venice, have eaten at Gold Rush many years. One lb of pork bar bq has always been great. This summer the pork has been a little tough. Tonight, Sat, couldn't chew it. I called Frank and told him we've been fans for years but can't chew the pork. He gave me a big yawn, "been to busy"... More

It had been quite awhile and when a friend suggested meeting here for dinner I was delighted. Parking lot was crowded so I thought there would be a wait, but we got lucky. Our waiter was Alex, yet I was greeted by other workers who seemed to remember me well, and that's always a pleasant experience. Food was just great,... More

We ordered The Mother Lode Combo and everything was delicious. The beef was incredible. Loved the atmosphere and our waiter Frank was A+ Can't wait to go back and try everything else on the menu!

Great place. A little dusty. Good staff. Manager/Owner gracious. BUT; the baby back ribs sucked.Anyone remember The Original TONY ROMA's. Not when he franchised? Right way to cook ribs...the meat should peel off the bone; not fall off ,or need to cut it away from bone. I had the latter experience; they s/b juicy, not dry, tough, & overcooked.French Fries...

We have been going to Gold Rush BBQ for years. Nothing compares when it comes to ribs and sides. We love the corn bread, too!

First visit to Gold Rush BBQ. We drove 30 minutes to get there and it was worth the drive. The restaurant was busy however there was no wait. Tonight was all you could eat BBQ chicken. We had the chicken and chopped pork platter. The food was served hot and the sides were also very good. The friendly staff added... More

This is top-notch BBQ. My wife order ribs and they were meaty and not fatty. I had the pulled beef combo and it was excellent. Sides were good, corn bread very good. Will go back when we are in the area!
