This is the ultimate "neighborhood bar" that has been around for decades. It isn't fancy, but it is a great place to get great food and enjoy yourself. Everything they serve is delicious and the pizza is exceptional. It's different than you get anywhere else and so good.

We were visiting the nearby federal prison and since we were intrigued by the white restaurant that stood out on a little hill we stopped there. The golfers were mostly gone by 9:30 when we entered to order. Great looking place! Great sports memorabilia on the wall! Really friendly waitress. Two of us ordered breakfast and the other lunch. They... More

I heard about this place and wanted to try it because I'm always looking for somewhere new to go. It is a cute small restaurant. The food was delicious. We ordered the breaded fish with fries and Cole slaw. The fish was huge and was very good, the fries were like fair fries and the Cole slaw was homemade. I... More

We stopped at the Golden Dawn after a 40 year hiatus and it is better than ever. Meticulously clean, reupholstered booths, restored original 1933 bar, all new paint. The food is excellent; and very inexpensive. I had a three piece breaded pork chop dinner with salad - for $6.99 !! My wife's roast beef was $6.00. We had breakfast on... More

Most of the reviews i have read are accurate. Golden Dawn is a Youngstown "old school" establishment that has been around for generations (literally). You need to try the pizza but be patient since it takes a while and beware of no free refills. Despite the rough neighborhood, it is definitely a place to check out. The people who work... More

The waitress kept refiling our beverages and in the end we were hit with a 7.00 bill for coke refills. Never were we informed that they dont do FREE refills. The manager, Kathy behind the bar, refused to give us a break stating that since they are not a chain restaurant they dont honor free refills. I believe we should... More

This was the first time I came across this nice old school bar/restaurant, apparently a local favorite. I stopped in for breakfast. It was basic, good food. The classic bar gives this small place it's wonderful "old days" atmosphere. If you are near the YSU campus, this is worth the short trip for a bit of nostalgia.
