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... read 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

I eat there everyday when I visit Dayton. The food and the staff are incredible, the owners AMAZING. OMG I miss my French Toast with an order of homefries, very crispy with onions. This place ALWAYS has a line up cuz the food is so delicious and inexpensive. You have to go !!

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.
