This was the first time I came across this nice old school bar/restaurant, apparently a local favorite. I stopped in for breakfast. It was basic, good food. The classic bar gives this small place it's wonderful "old days" atmosphere. If you are near the YSU campus, this is worth the short trip for a bit of nostalgia.

I had no idea this place even existed until a friend took me there last night. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside was full of ytown history.. I heard so many stories about the family recipes and the restaurant/bar itself. The pizza was amazing, great service and invitinf atmosphere. I will definitely be returning. Ps. Currently... More

My friend and I came here after asking another friend to recommend a good restaurant in Youngstown. From the outside, you may expect the smell of mildew and cats from your old granny's house, but upon entering, you're taken back to the classic 1950's American diner (with Irish furnishings decorating the walls). We came for "brunch" on a Saturday afternoon.... More

Golden Dawn is a landmark in Youngstown. I was in for a breakfast. Service was fine, and the food was also fine. Nothing special, but perfectly reasonable. But one doesn't go to Golden Dawn for the food; rather its the atmosphere of a classic Youngstown area diner The people are the reason. And that's exactly what you get.

A classic Youngstown neighborhood bar. Regulars at the counter who enjoy watching Jeopardy every evening. Families coming in for dinner. The welcoming Naples family are the long-time owners. You need cash to pay. Some average and some very good food. The daily lunch special is usually good and is often still available (and good) for supper. Pork chops and fish... More

Genessee draft and a pizza pie good enough to put a twinkle in your eye. You can taste that Grandma is cookin in the kitchen, so be prepared to wait for it. Prices are fair and atmosphere is an excellent reminder of the established 1934 start of this place. Well kept, locally loved.

When you walk into the Golden Dawn, you are transported back in time. The restaurant hasn't really changed in the 30+ years I have been going here, but that is a good thing! Pride of ownership is evident here. I have moved away from the North Side of Youngstown, but places like the Golden Dawn remain forever in my heart.... More
