Come early to avoid the wait

The food here really does taste like a home cooked meal. We arrived around 11:30am and had to wait in line for 30 minutes, but it was worth it. The french toast was delicious and the pancakes where fluffy. They don't have egg whites though. This place is very casual and staff is friendly and quick... read more

I've been visiting Dayton for years as my family lives there and I've been trying to get into this place for a long time. It is really popular. It's like an old-fashioned place in a very new building. We enjoyed what we got: a Western omelet and a BLT with an egg. Our service was outstanding. But otherwise, I'm not... More

Extremely popular breakfast and lunch spot. Reasonably priced, non-fancy menu with great burgers, salads, and, of course, pancakes. Be prepared to wait for a table, especially during peak breakfast and lunch hours.

We wanted to try some where different, so we went. The atmosphere was 1980'S.We were listening to disco music while we waited, looking at a picture of a donkey with buckets,The decor was Venetian style plaster and milifiore sconces and pendants . Interesting. The wait was about 15 minutes more.I had biscuits and gravy, wallpaper paste is a good name... More

We go here for breakfast about every month with a large group. Everything is always good and everyone's food looks yummy! No one ever complains either! My husband usually share one of the specials and add a order of muffins. Its plenty for both of us. Usually order the omelette with potatoes and pancakes. Yummy! Service is always fast and... More

I grew up in Dayton, and when visiting recently, no one could believe I'd never been to the Golden Nugget. I now at least know why I won't be back. The line out the door for a table on a Saturday morning seemed to suggest I had missed something all these years, but we found the food (while overly plentiful)... More

This is a Kettering landmark and theeee place to get the best pancakes and such the array. Of different types of pancakes and breakfast choices, no place will ever compare.

I am late in writing this review, but this is a great local establishment. We went on a Saturday morning and there was a long line of customers waiting to be seated. No one seemed to mind the wait and I'm guessing most were regulars. You can tell this restaurant has been in business a long time and many experienced... More

This is everything you would expect - with a breakfast menu that U.S. as large as anything I have seen. Great food. Wonderful service from people who have been doing this for a LONG time. Worth a trip. Note: This is the "whitest" place I have ever visited. Being from San Antonio, we are used to a wonderful multi-ethnic environment.... More

We had finished up with our check up at the doctors and thought of where to eat. I had been here before some time ago. My wife and son had never eaten here. They ordered breakfast and we waited. We had also ordered Hot Chocolate. I was surprised by the style of mug it was. Cute for being plastic. But... More
