Every time that I have eaten at Gold Nugget, the food and service has been consistently good. Some time we have had a little bit of a wait-but always worth it!

It's true that the Gold Nugget is no longer a hole-in-the-wall bar serving just burgers and fries, but things change, and the Gold Nugget has too. The food has been pretty consistently good on every visit. I've had fish and chips, the walleye sandwich, and of course the burgers. The food is what you would expect as far as bar... More

My burger was amazing. Combination of being cooked to perfection and tasted like heaven. Good selection of local beers. A bit tricky to get too but well worth a visit

Boy, what a road this restaurant has had. Gold Nugget used to be a low-key hole-in-the-wall tavern, and now it has evolved into a modern restaurant with a large bar. What a few years ago seemed like a decent restaurant is now an overpriced experience. The burgers are quite small, and way overpriced at around $15 a burger. Ridiculously expensive... More

We have been coming to the Gold Nugget since it was a hole-in-the-wall 20 years ago. When it rebuilt, it changed, of course, and in many ways for the better. Their burgers have been pretty consistently good over the years - juicy and delicious. Their fries are almost always hot and crunchy. Their drink selection great. Their service is usually... More

The place is known for burgers, for good reason. It is a reasonably-priced family restaurant with a long history. It can get a little loud.

This is a sports bar, very nice atmosphere. Soccer jerseys hang over the bar. They have several tv's on showing sports. The burgers are very good. They are over priced, but good. I had the build your own burger and it was good. The fries were also good, more of a thin fry, but good. Also, keep in mind the... More

Our family went here when visiting from out of town for a youth soccer tournament. I had the Top Shelf Burger. It was so good and the sweet potato fries were excellent. My family all built their own burgers. The pretzel bun was a favorite. The burgers were cooked almost perfectly. The warm brownie dessert was tasty. We might go... More

We used to go to the Gold Nugget when it was the old hole in the wall years ago, before the complete rebuild, and it was great then for a quality burger. Now, it's unrecognizable from that original place, but still has great burgers, a diverse menu, and friendly service. There are TVs with sports, but not so much to... More
