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.

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
