Great food and wide selection! The menu had items that would appeal to everyone weather you like traditional or something a bit unique and over the top. The atmosphere and staff was casual and friendly, but the food could have come from the most upscale of restaurants. I highly recommend giving Gold Rush Cafe a try if your in the... More

The atmosphere was average. Our waitress did a nice job. The omelets were very good. Limited diet drink options.

Stopped here on a road trip with the kids and honestly wasn't expecting anything spectacular. The staff was very friendly though, and the food we had was amazing. Thick bacon, bread pudding waffle was delicious, BLFGT was great, chili mac burger was delicious, and the scotch egg outstanding. Almost worth another drive out there. We'll definitely be back when driving... More

Eggscalibur -awesome Loosen your belt for this sandwich. The restaurant is great! The food is wonderful. You get your money's worth. It is nicely priced and the quality of the food is excellent. Great for the family or the couple or single. Great environment, clean and old fashion.

Wow, this place blew me away. It's not a swanky place but the food is fantastic!!! I'd like to try other things too bad we were just leaving the next day. I won't forget Gold Rush Cafe, you shouldn't either. I only had the Calamity Jane breakfast....so good!!! I'll be back this summer.

Great place for a weekend breakfast. Selection was terrific, served in large portions and very hot. Pancakes were my favorite.

I chose this restaurant because it was so well reviewed on trip advisor. We were on a road trip, and rather than eating close to the highway, went 20 minutes off the highway into town. The food was very disappointing. The tables were crowded. The bathrooms were disgusting, and confusing for gender identification. Peeking into the kitchen (direct access from... More

We enjoyed or breakfast at this classic old restaurant in downtown Paducah. With two hour free parking, we didn't feel rushed. Our waitress Marcy was prompt and pleasant. The biscuits (huge) and gravy were excellent, and their house potatoes with onions were great. We'll return if we are in the area again.

Me and my husband went for the first time today. Super friendly staff and I love the wall decorations. Well let's talk about the cheeseburger omelet I order. It was so good, it came with pickles and two sides. I got the daily side and it was a Cajun rice and biscuits and sausage grave. Those biscuits were huge and... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch before visiting the Quilt Museum. Shared a burger and fries, which were fine. A lot of locals seem to eat here, which is a recommendation in itself. The prices were reasonable.
