Ordered the Happy Hour food which was average. The French Fries came way after the sandwiches were delivered. Ordered a Tequila and Cranberry Juice and was not told that for ordering 100% agave tequila I would have to pay $11. Nice happy hour price, huh?...More

Great burgers. Tots were really unusual and tasty. Service friendly but professional. We thought the menu was varied yet very Minnesotan, in a good way. It’s an attractive space also.

The honey harissa marinated chicken sandwich was not good. The sweet potato fries were. My husband's fish and chips were only okay. Our waiter, who was very over-worked this holiday evening was great.

The Gold Nugget is a great place for a burger and fries. Lots of different brews as well. They are now open for brunch as well, so things are really cooking at this place.. Locally owned as well.

I recommend that you NEVER order a Guinness beer at this establishment. I’ve tried several times, over more than 10 years (only because it was close to my children’s school), and they literally dump too-cold Guinness into a glass. But the real concern is the...More

Jwp4 - I'm so sorry for your experience. This is not the type of service that we offer, and I've already begun to speak with the entire bar staff about attentiveness as a result of your review. I'm glad you brought the Guinness issue to...More
