Good local breakfast spot which has typical eggs, pancakes, etc. Reasonable prices and if you want to linger and talk over a couple of extra cups of coffee no problem.

You will love this restaurant! They close in the afternoon and I think on Mondays, So popular people are lined up outside on Sat and Sun. Daily specials-so much food you will never eat it all. I love the eggs Benedict and the omelets are just the best ever. Be sure to request Swiss or cheddar for your omelet or... More

I have been dining at the Golden Nugget since my days as a UD student ('87), so when I am in town this is one of my favorite places to catch up with friends during my visit. My favorite is the feta and spinach omelette with home fries (they changed from shredded to flakes since my last visit) and pancakes.... More

We went on a Sunday afternoon, and had about a 10-15 minute wait before being seated. We had never been there before so we needed an extra minute to look over the menu. The table right beside us got seated a couple minutes after we did and ordered right away. Once we were ready, it took our waitress (who wasn't... More

My husband and I split a meal, on the recommendation of friends we went to eat with and it was more than adequate for us. A locally owned institution in Dayton, well worth a little wait time. Service was exceptional, our server was witty and outspoken and made the meal fun.

Was back in my old home town and had to go to GN and see if still as good as I remember. Had the hash, excellent; sausage patties, really flavorful, juicy not greasy, great pancakes, though the syrup seemed a bit thin/watered down; really good home fries and thick cut toast. Conclusion : as good as I remembered.

I have been to the Golden Nugget before and the pancakes are very good. Waitresses are usually good. Today I had a very unpleasant experience with the Hostess/ Lady seating people. I was by myself and had my portfolio and ipad with me to do a working breakfast. I wait about 5 mins and she starts to seat me in... More

We love breakfast, especially pancakes. We had heard about this place for years and just had the chance to eat there. We had eggs, bacon, and buttermilk pancakes. The eggs were scrambled and just OK. The bacon was very thinly sliced and greasy. The pancakes were nothing special. Most disa0ointing was the syriup....runny as water and not a great flavor.... More

Was in town visiting and met a friend here for breakfast. Get there early because it does fill up, but the restaurant is huge. The menu is equally large. Pancakes were awesome and they had some unique omelette choices. Better than any of the chain breakfast choices!

This place has breakfast perfected. You almost always have to wait in line for a table but it is worth it. No place I would rather have breakfast. Large menu, good service, and food will keep you coming back.
