My husband and I were passing through on our way to Alabama and stopped in for breakfast. He isn't a breakfast food fan, but says they made a believer out of him. I had the meatloaf breakfast scramble and he had the buffalo scotch eggs. Both were fantastic, as were the prices and employees. Worth a stop in if you... More

We were passing through and we try to avoid chains. Pleasantly surprised! We saw another person with the chicken strips, they looked good, so we ordered. Very good! Had a little dill taste to them, I am not a huge fan of dill but they were still good. Also had the Quad grilled cheese, also good. Sister-in-law order the summer... More

We were on our way home from Florida, and we were passing through Paducah during lunch time. We had our oldest son look on TripAdvisor for places to eat. He found the Gold Rush Café. We are glad he did. I had the lunch special, Burgundy Steak Omelet with mushrooms, stuffed with Brie cheese. My wife had a bowl of... More

So many choices of omelets, scramblers and sweet stuff. French Toast Waffle is served crisp like a waffle and oozes of french toast. Breakfast is served all day. Hit lunch early, it is a busy place.

Best breakfast in town. Don't miss the scotch eggs if they're on the menu when you visit. Waffles are also very good. Eclectic menu with varied choices at lunch and dinner. You never know what treasures you will find as the special of the day! Great value.

Definitely a homey diner with comfort foods galore. Laid back atmosphere, copious servings, and friendly service. Food might be just a tad on the bland side, but worth a visit!

I would describe the food as tasty, but standard. We ordered the egg and biscuit with gravy for our son and it was so-so. The steakhouse burger was better and the monte Cristo was the best thing we ordered. The service was good and the atmosphere was okay. I would eat here again but it's not top priority when we...
