Family restaurant where lines are long. For what? Generic food. Pancake syrup very thin. Wait staff nowhere to be found. Corn mush ok. French toast nothing to save about. Banana pancake not too bad. Biscuit dry and gravy which is so-so. Not returning.

Breakfast was kind of bland. The Gravy was very good, but otherwise I didn't have much to say one way or the other.

The Golden Nugget Pancake House is one of my favorite breakfast places in Dayton. The pancakes, omelets and biscuits & gravy are the best. Very reasonable prices!
