Good breakfast, wish the had scotch eggs as appetizer. Didn't want to order for entree. Very small place with limited seating. Worth trying if in the area.

Great place. We eat there weekly, sometimes twice a day! We have become good friends with everyone there. We always look for their specials that are unique.

Christy Starnes

Fresh cooked food and lots of it. Service great, atmosphere good.

Brian D

So, so delicious. Our waitress was very helpful in helping us pick out items since this was our first visit. We both chose The Daltons and split a Scottish egg. The food came out in about 15 minutes, and everything was fantastic. Highly recommend!


The breakfast selection had standards but quite a bit of originality. I had the Bananas Foster which I have never had before so I have nothing to compare to but it was excellent. Our waitress was very personable.

Dave Polster

Renee Barauskas

Amber Alliston

Best place for a unique Paducah feel. Not to mention great food and AMAZING WAFFLES!

Christopher Dillard

Loved this place servers are really nice the food is very fresh. We're from FL and never had food this fresh and flavorful. I will be coming back. A+ Menu item scotch eggs nothing I have ever had. Modifies from original recipe but it's one of those OMG moments that is so good. And then my choices of sides I'm the starch king (aka heart attack).

Trista Bledsoe

The food is good. $3 for half of a biscuit and some gravy was a little overkill though. Everything is mostly a la carte and $2-4. The meals were around $10-12. The 3 stars is quality of service mostly then the quality of food; though I didn't see how everyone says the place is so amazing. I didn't see the exceptional bit to the food. It was good but a lot of restaurants have good food. Service was good, drinks refilled in a timely manner, waitress was super nice and sweet.

Roxy Foxy and Dr Pepper Show

This is a small restaurant with amazing local foods! Always good and always friendly

Jennifer Newman

Chicken livers were delicious today! I love everything here! So good!

Rachel Dillard

The bread pudding waffles we're amazing.. I have never had eggs taste so delicious.

Debra Ruley

The service is good on some days but other days are not so good. The food is okay but for the prices I would expect to get real chicken and dressing with real goblet gravy. Not Stove Top dressing with canned chicken and canned gravy!

Lisa den Blanken

Great breakfast and service! Try the bread pudding pancakes!

Jessica Morrow

Everything we ate was absolutely delicious! The chicken is incredible!

John Pietri

Breakfast was excellent and the service was great.

Rose Mccoy

This was the first time we have been here for lunch. I can say if you haven't been here for breakfast you must! Breakfast here is the best. Lunch wasn't as good as the breakfast. They close early so make sure you check and see if they are opened when you go. They only serve breakfast and lunch.

Terrie Spencer

it was awesome awesome awesome awesome the food was very good and I waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable of all the good tasting options

Danielle Smith

We have been traveling for hours and wanted to get out of the car and have a non-fast food meal at a local place. We arrived at Gold Rush and went to the service pew and waited. We knew from the crowd there could be a wait. We stood there waiting for someone to at least acknowledge we were there. Four servers walked by and made eye contact, twice with two of the same servers. Not one time did someone say, "has someone helped you" etc. After almost ten minutes of waiting to get on the waiting list someone finally helped us. The whole time we were waiting there was a completely clean and ready to go table for two. I asked about the table and the waiter said that table is for someone on the list..... This whole experience we wasted about 20 minutes of nothing. Luckily for us we stopped at Red's donuts and has the best donuts ever. Really would have like to try the food at Gold Rush but their system is disorganized and time wasting.

Katrina Mijares

Great food and service! Reasonably priced. Daily specials and more. We come from Jersey and eat here every time we are in town!

Joel Anderson

I made the mistake of ordering a non-breakfast item. It was fine, but not as good as it could have been. I got the chicken tenders. They were a little bit dry and not as good as anticipated. Tater Tots were average. If you go and visit, I'd recommend keeping with breakfast items.

Trish Chambers

Incredible food, quirky, eclectic, comfortable atmosphere, great prices

Joseph Gordon

I love going to this place and getting breakfast. Be warned, so do many other people. The place isnt overly large and thus isnt ideal for a large group because there will be a wait time. However, it's worth the wait if you have to do so.

Matt Morgan

I've never had a bad experience, the food is always fresh and delicious. The staff is very friendly.

Melanie Roberts

Food is very good and staff was friendly.

Amber Yancy

Love the food. It’s not a good place to eat if you’re on a diet!!!! It’s good ole home made food. And they change up their specials daily. Stuff you may never think of putting togther. And it’s goood. They do things for the community too. Not a big box here to just make money, they care about the locals! Spend your money here!

Glen Arterburn

Great food and service!

Bob williams

The food is really good and the staff is really awesome. If you don't like what they have they will make it your way. Ken is a hoot. Need more desserts later in the evening.

Tammy Maston

The food is amazing and the owner Kenneth is very helpful and nice the staff is so nice you have to try this place and you will have to go back

David Hedrich

This is an awesome place to eat. Great home cookin' and a friendly atmosphere. The Cajun Chicken Mac and Cheese is by far my favorite.

Laura Greene

This food was the BEST breakfast. This alone was worth the four hour trip to Panducah, seriously good food and friendly waitresses.

Brooks Park

Incredible omelets. The Cajun Chicken MacNCheese is my favorite lunch time meal.

Bernard Steinhoff

Good Food, and Service.

Melissa Clark

Amazing local place with some of the best breakfast food I have ever have. Owner and staff are super friendly! Highly recommend!

Sue Thomas

So glad we opted for local instead of a chain!!! The meatloaf omelet came minus the meatloaf. When I mentioned it, the cook came out personally to apologize, then made a whole, new omelet!! Their home fries were awesome, as was the sausage gravy, my husband had! You won't find a friendlier staff anywhere!!! Don't miss this one!!!

Bruce & Kelly Clark

The food was amazing and service was wonderful. We got there early on a Saturday so missed the crowd. By the time we left, it was packed with a line out the door. Portions are huge for the cost and coffee was good. The place is small so you might have a wait but its worth it. Their unusual menu of omelets was a fun thing to read and talk about. A must try in Paducah!

Joel Bormann

Delicious. Good service. Tried the bread pudding waffles and Omelet with home fries. Every was fantastic!

Sarah Smith

We love Gold Rush! We try to make it out every Saturday! My husband's favorite is the bread pudding waffles and i LOVE the cajun mac and cheese! They are very friendly and the food is always good!

Shelby Evans

I've looked thru the other reviews. Guess we were there on a off day. Visited for lunch. Food was ok. We all tried different things. All of us agreed food was a bit bland. Server was pleasant. The salad bar was nice though. Will run about 8 or 9 dollars with tip for lunch.

Tony Schutz

Friendly staff, tasty Monte Cristo. Old place could use some renovation and cleaning.

Rita Roberson

Food is excellent!

Dennis Sharpe

Unique local spot. Highly recommend. Burgers are the best in Paducah, and the staff are sure to provide an above average experience. If you are looking for breakfast or lunch, you'll be equally impressed by what's on offer. Open hours are limited so keep that in mind if planning to dine here.

Terral Starks

A good place for breakfast! Nice environment

Howard Depoister

We we're on our way home from Nasville, TN visiting our son. Found this Cafe on the web. You will really enjoy this place. Had the Cajun Mac & cheese Loved it!!!! You will not be disappointed! Well worth the visit!!!!

Vincent Busclas

Whereas the cheeseburger had a decent flavor to it, the burger itself was extremely thin almost felt like a piece of jerky. I expect to pay extra for additional toppings like cheese and bacon, but 50 each for every other topping is WAY expensive. A head of lettuce is like 2.00 I paid 50 cents for barely I shred. A tomato is about 1.00 I paid 50 cents for a very thin slice. This place makes all their money apparently by charging you for toppings that 99% of other restaurants that serve burgers include as a base. I won't be going back personally.

Maggie Ness

The absolute best breakfast place in town! It was lovely and homey, the service was great and the biscuits and gravy are incredible (and huge!)

Brenda Bowers

Food was good plenty of it in the service was really good super friendly people good place to visit

Mykinna C. Howard

I loved the high quality, fresh home style cooking here. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Very quaint, but plenty of seating upstairs and in the back. I will drive from St Louis, just for the bread pudding waffles!

Kelly crowe

Great food and staff

Cali Mason

Best breakfast around!! It was so delicious I would recommend anyone wh is driving through to take a few extra minutes and go downtown and come here for great food, fast service!

Mary Grim

Great landmark downtown and 5 minutes from the riverfront


Amazing place to eat and great service!! I had the BBQ Bacon Burger and it was absolutely amazing.

Ann-Meredith McNeill

Gold Rush has consistently wonderful food. Great, homey comfort food. Stellar breakfasts! They like having fun with food and aren't afraid to try new things. Also the bathrooms are now genderless, which is fantastic.

Robert Wilson

Best breakfast ever. Epic. The Scottish Eggs were amazing, as was the biscuits and gravy. Having served many years in our fine US Navy, I will honestly say Gold Rush has them beat. (For this land lubbers who weren't privy to this fact, the US Navyis known for their breakfast). We found Gold Rush on Google when we were planning our trip to the Superman Celebration. Everything was excellent, even the service. The Tea was great. The tater tots were nice. Very fun and fast service. Don't hesitate.

Kyle Wachner

Went yesterday for breakfast and noticed a new menu, it's been 7 months since I've been there. Don't know if new menu means new ownership or not, but something changed. I always told people it was the best breakfast in town, but after yesterday, I'd rather eat breakfast at Burger King. It was AWFUL. Home fries came out black and the omelet was deplorable. Just eggs in the pan until it was completely dry and hard. You know it's bad because when the cook folded it over, it broke into 2 pieces. I lifted them apart with my fork. And you always know bad eggs because you're in the bathroom multiple times within a few hours. Then it took 10 minutes to pay because the server needed a smoke break. Apparently the management staff is okay with this as well. This restaurant should move to Metropolis, the quality is a perfect fit.

MeMe Love you soothing music!

Great little place for a very well prepared, tasty breakfast.

Amanda Connell

They have wonderful specialty Mac and cheeses that you MUST try!

Robert Quigley

Great Food and great service!!!!!

Michael Lubis

Awesome place, crazy breakfast options

Carrie Griffin

Ordered a burger with mushrooms. It was delicious. Give this local place a visit, you won't be disappointed.

Alicia Franklin

This place is amazing!! It is a smaller place so there is not alot of room to sit and wait while while you are waiting on a table but so worth it. Their food is amazing and their service is excellent. If you like biscuits and gravy you will not be disappointed. Their biscuits are so big it is almost comical. Lol!! I've never been disappointed in my food or service when eating here.

Arnold Puckett

Unique restaurant in downtown Paducah. Has excellent breakfast menu. Good food.

Karen Krumm

Loved everything except sitting under the cold air vent ruined our meal.

Adam Horton

I decided after my second visit, to only ever order the special. I have not been disappointed even once. The food in incredible and inexpensive. The diner feel is there, but all the random decor around the building makes it feel even more laid back and fun. Great place for breakfast anytime you are downtown in the mornings.

Lisa Goldberg

Good food. Need to accept reservations before people drive all the way downtown to find out it's overr an hour wait.

Heather Stewart


zeandria fallingwater

Best little kept secret in Paducah. Breakfast is outstanding. Can't go wrong visiting here for food. Right downtown near the river and lots of shopping.

Martin Polega

Started going here for birthday breakfasts in the family. Nashville chicken in waffles quite good. The wife had the chicken biscuits and gravy and also really enjoyed it. The place is homey and the kids are entertained with crayons and coloring papers.

N.M. Thompson

Biscuits and gravy with eggs were very good. Scotch egg was quite tasty as well. The historic building lends a lot of charm. The service makes it a super place for breakfast in downtown Paducah. It's worth the drive from the interstate if you are passing thru in the morning or staying overnight.

Patricia Garrison

Good food!

Rick and Pam Parker

The best breakfast I have ever had, hands down. Expertly prepared eggs, awesome hash browns, fabulous sausage, and the biggest biscuits I have ever had. The staff is the friendliest ever.

The food was simple, with explosive flavor. It's been 30 years since I've had bisuicts and gravy that were that good.

Ed Diaz

Great coffee, food, prices and customer service.

Tara Shope

This is hands down my favorite restaurant. Incredibly delicious and sometimes unique dishes at very reasonable prices. My family of 5 adults had the breakfast buffet on Saturday at the cost of about $10/person, for all you can eat amazing food! The staff is always outgoing and friendly, and we've never had to wait for a table. Plus it's located in downtown Paducah near the waterfront, within walking distance of several shops and galleries.

Haley Magicka

Looks nice inside and out. Quite old fashioned. Great menu. The veggie omelet was delicious. Not a boring ole omelet. I got hashbrowns on the side and fresh fruit, pretty good. I got so full. Great coffee. Friendly staff. Highly recommended.

William Mayes

Bread pudding waffle and Scotch egg were delicious.

Brian Miller

The food was awful. Everything was greasey and lacking flavor. I moved the hash browns with my fork and underneath was a puddle of grease. Will not be going back.

Cohen Hilton

Always good, great staff, biscuits are off the chain. Scotch eggs with the maple mustard are a must have. If you are hungry and in Paducah looking for a cheap bite, Gold Rush is the place to go.

Melissa Inman

Favorite local place to have breakfast.. Best homemade biscuits EVER!

Route 45

Cute restaurant in historic downtown Paducah, KY. Be prepared to wait to be seated, but take a look at everything on its walls. Our server was great and fun to chat with. The food was pretty good and there's a few interesing dishes on the breakfast menu.

Wilma J

Really great food. A sweet sassy waitress who was so loveable. Not a place to rush. So kick back and relax.

Alaa Alotaibi

The owner is rude the servers were rude.They are fit to each other. We ordered and after 1 hour (60 minutes) literally 60 minutes. She came with one order and tell us they are out for the second order!!!! I we talked to the owner he said “I’m sorry” and left he didn’t do or say anything else!!! People came after us and they have their food and left 1 dollar tip, they were nice to give them this much!! Wors experience in my whole life in a restaurant. Congrats gold rush!! You are the top of my worst restaurants list!
