Always good food

This is probably my favorite restaurant in Paducah. We usually eat here at least 2 times every week. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. Ken the owner always comes out to see how the food is and wants to know if something is not right.

Paducah needs more down home, family restaurants like the Gold Rush. Nothing fancy here but it's clean, the food is excellent and the staff is friendly & accommodating. I don't get downtown often in the mornings but when timing allows, I make a point of stopping in here for a great breakfast. Have had an occasional lunch here too and... More

Found this restaurant while visiting the area on Trip Advisor. Decided to try it out and it was excellent. Not a real posh place but the food made up for it. We had stopped for lunch and returned the next morning for breakfast.......some excellent choices - we had the mac and cheese omelet and shared a BLFGT sandwich (bacon, lettuce,... More

Never heard a bad word regarding this place. Not for your anniversary celebration but perfect for a casual outing in downtown Paducah. The quilters fall in love with it.

My family and I were passing through and read reviews for a good place to eat. We came across this place and really enjoyed the food and the service we received. Among the four of us we had meatloaf, pork chops, and the Swiss and mushroom burger as meals along with macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, seared cabbage,... More

I'm from Paducah and make it a point to visit the Gold Rush often. The servers are friendly and funny and rarely let you see the bottom of your glass. The owners are super folks, and Ken comes up with some items and variations on themes that are both brilliant and delicious! I've said before that you could pin the... More

I have been coming here for years. Food is good. New owners took over a few years ago and have added unique items to the menu. I do miss some of the original specials but this is a good place to eat.

We had breakfast at the goldrush cafe. The first introduction was when we walked in the door the waitress pointed at us with both hands then pointed to a booth in the middle to say there. No words. Then she proceeded to give us great service with a wry since of humor. Food was great. Good variety. Biscuits to die... More

My husband and I stayed overnight in Paducah earlier this year and had a great meal at another location, but this trip (October 17) we were traveling with other family members. As we were all researching places to eat, we noticed Paducah was having an Octoberfest in their downtown so we thought it would be fun to try a restaurant... More
