Had the scallops and husband and the salad with salmon. Very late salad. Tasty scallops and sides were very good. Got beer which was just okay. Peanut butter pie for dessert was tasty and their coffee was great. This meal should have been much more expensive but it was very affordable. Wait staff was excellent and friendly. GO TO THIS PLACE.

Gold Rush stays true to what they are-a BBQ restaurant. We had the pulled pork, ribs and pork(which wasn't on the menu but our waiter was more than willing to get it done), chicken and pork and the one of everything platter. Each entree was served with 2 sides(all were excellent) and a corn muffin. All meals were spot on. We couldn't have asked for a better meal to finish our vacation. The staff were friendly and went above the norm to make our experience wonderful! Don't miss this BBQ haven!

This used to be one of the best local places to eat. Last night we went, a group of 6. The service was outstanding, but the food was just so-so. The meat was just warm, and the pork was very dried out - not moist at all. The beef was a little better, but also NOT hot. One of us had a fish sandwich that was good, but over cooked. The cole slaw was great, and the mac and cheese was good. I am not sure why this was. We are at the depth of "low season" here, so it is not crowds.
