The Golden diner is a perennial favorite. Wonderful food. Friendly staff. Good prices. Their corned beef hash is the best in the region: flavorful, no fat, no grease, no fillers.

During our three day visit to Golden, we ate at the Golden Diner twice - once for lunch and then back for breakfast the following day. The prices are moderate and the food was great - very fresh, hot, and hearty portions and they serve breakfast all day long. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. During peak hours, it... More

Another restaurant in Golden where you will likely have to wait. To be honest they have a card right on the table that says that. It is a small place with no real room to stand around inside without feeling like you are creeping on the current diners. You can always wait outside, but in Dec.-ugh. They only have one... More

First I have to caveat my review with the fact that I am not a regular, and we happened to visit on a day when they had a parade on main street , which may have made this palce a little busier than normal. We signed in with the hostess and she took my phone number to test me when... More

This is right on Main Street so the location is convenient and the atmosphere is very nice. The food was OK and we all described it a kind of bland. The service was a bit slow but OK. It is a little pricey.

We are not picky eaters, nor picky about restaurants, but here are our findings: Pros - good hashbrowns good toast service was ok Food wasn't greasy It seemed clean Cons - it was freezing in there (no need for AC at 7am in November). The biscuits and gravy were not good. The gravy had no meat and tasted like nothing... More

A few years ago we had stumbled across this diner. Staying again near Golden,CO we knew this was a must stop for breakfast. We always try to stay away from chain restaurants, buy local.

We always try to eat in locally-owned establishments when traveling so after driving up Lookout Mountain we stopped here. They are only open until 2:00 but it seems to be a favorite of locals and tourists alike. Great coffee and a casual, friendly atmosphere.

This place is GREAT!!! The best cornbeef hash you've ever had, and that's no joke! I loved it! Everything is HOMEMADE, no bagged corn beef or canned sauces. They cook it ALL themselves. My husband really enjoyed the green chilie sauce and red chilie sauce. The fruit was also cut fresh when ordered! i just can't say enough good things... More

This is a tiny place right downtown that if you are looking for a great home cooked style breakfast, this is the place to go! The service was excellent and the meals are big and well worth the cost, which is not much!
