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... read 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

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.

I had no idea this place even existed until a friend took me there last night. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside was full of ytown history.. I heard so many stories about the family recipes and the restaurant/bar itself. The pizza was amazing, great service and invitinf atmosphere. I will definitely be returning. Ps. Currently... More

My friend and I came here after asking another friend to recommend a good restaurant in Youngstown. From the outside, you may expect the smell of mildew and cats from your old granny's house, but upon entering, you're taken back to the classic 1950's American diner (with Irish furnishings decorating the walls). We came for "brunch" on a Saturday afternoon.... More

Golden Dawn is a landmark in Youngstown. I was in for a breakfast. Service was fine, and the food was also fine. Nothing special, but perfectly reasonable. But one doesn't go to Golden Dawn for the food; rather its the atmosphere of a classic Youngstown area diner The people are the reason. And that's exactly what you get.

A classic Youngstown neighborhood bar. Regulars at the counter who enjoy watching Jeopardy every evening. Families coming in for dinner. The welcoming Naples family are the long-time owners. You need cash to pay. Some average and some very good food. The daily lunch special is usually good and is often still available (and good) for supper. Pork chops and fish... More
