I have lived in the Dayton area, for over 15 years now, and have never been there. A friend took me, there on morning, and what a nice breakfast we had. We went early, so there was no line, and the staff treated us nicely. And the food came out to us very fast, which was a surprise to me,... More

This breakfast and lunch only restaurant is worth standing on line for. And you will. From perfectly cooked to order eggs to crispy chicken fingers and everything inbetween, the portions to price ratio are in your favor. Closed on Monday. Enjoy!

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. I would just recommend... 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.

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
