I love Gold Rush. Its a greasy spoon and its quirky but thats what I'm into. The food is an interesting mash up of many southern favorites and is generally pretty good. The cheese "sticks" are my favorite in the world. Unfortunately there is some hit and miss with staffing and sometimes we get the... read more

Great food! Great service and great prices! My friends and I were looking for a place we dont normally have breakfast at and found this place on trip advisor and decided to give it a shot. We were not disappointed in the east bit! We will be back!

We have tried both breakfast and lunch menus. Something delightfully different or standard fare are both available. Desserts are not what you will find at other restaurants. Give it a try - you will find something to like.

A lady from the museum recommends this for lunch so we stopped by. The waffle maker was broke. The burger and cali chicken wrap were superb! And very affordable. Service was great too! Definitely recommend it!

My husband and I are trying to visit all of the lower town restaurants for a different option of dining. This has been the only one so far that I wasn't impressed with. I felt it was uncomfortably small, grease smoky (mine and daughter's eyes were burning from it), food was okay at best, and the service wasn't pleasant or... More

Good late morning breakfast, spicy crew. Had eggs scrambed, toast homefries, coffee. they are proud of the bacon grease taste of the homefries and my arteries appreciated the cholesterol. My sister's biscuits were huuuge!

We expected a different experience at Gold Rush Cafe. The service was a little above average and the food was a little below average. Upon reading reviews on TA, we expected a Wow experience - we were not "Wowed". They are located in a very old building - that could use a good cleaning and the women's room was out... More

After reading reviews I decided to give them a try for supper. I was glad I did. The place was quite and the food was fresh and good. I had the Southwestern Omelet and enjoyed it. The service was pleasant and seemed understaffed. I would go back.
