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.

I am not normally a "breakfast" person, but this was the best French toast I have ever had! Definitely will be back!

I grew up in Dayton but moved away more than 30 years ago. I recall this place being a real treat when I was growing up. The facility has since been renovated making it an even greater treat as the same terrific food is offered in a very nice atmosphere. Whenever I come back to visit family here, I always... More

Their breakfast and lunch menu has plenty of yummy choices. They are known for their array of flapjacks. My faves are the healthier options of buckwheat or whole wheat. I can't get away from ordering their spinach and feta omelette.........oh MY! Your coffee cup is always topped off by any waitress who passes by. Service is quick and food is... More

When we fancy a waffle, my husband and I give ourselves a treat and drive up to the Golden Nugget. They serve a wide selection of other foods as well as waffles but we always order the same---waffles with toppings and whip cream and lots and lots of coffee. Staff are kind and attentive and happy we came to eat... More

Bacon & cheese omelet was excellent & you get three pancakes with it, good but could not eat it all. Staff was all very nice & polite. My friend had coffee & they kept his cup full, he had to tell them, please no more. Prices are reasonable, food is always good, staff is nice.......all well worth the wait!

Was the second time my family and I have attempted this venture. The first time was 4 years ago with just two kids. I was very disappointed by the older wait staff. They decided they would scold my 2 year old son because he was playing building blocks with the jelly. The food was ok the first time. That being... More

I'm not a native Daytonian, so maybe that's why I don't get it? Golden Nugget is a cherished institution here. Many people whose opinions I respect have expressed love for it. You will not find them less than busy, and on weekend breakfast hours there's likely a line out the door--in all seasons! You might wait over an hour to... More

Stopped in with the wife for breakfast on the recommendation of some local individuals. We were on vacation and what we found was a pleasant surprise. Just pick a flavor and wait for the taste buds to explode. I recommend the cinnamon pancakes and a omelet. Wife had the buckwheat pancakes, she is a true Southern Lady and she knows... More
