We were traveling home from Tennessee and decided to stop in Paducah for lunch, checked out places to eat and decided on this one. Nice little diner on the corner in downtown Paducah. Our meals were good.. recommend the onion rings, they were awesome.

We found Gold Rush Cafe on Trip Advisor and was very pleased with our experience. We started with the hand battered onion rings with the house sauce...best onion rings I have ever had. For our lunch, I had the 6oz meat loaf and my fiancé had the BLT complete with fried green tomatoes...we were both very pleased with our choices!... More

What a place for breakfast. We walked from our hotel two mornings. Really sweet staff and Down home delicious comfort foods with a menu that has no limit of the imagination for breakfast! The coffee is just average, a little weak but I love European robust coffee. Just go there, you will love the food❤️

Second time eating here and won't be my last! The food is great and the service is friendly. They just changed the menu today so I wasn't able to repeat my last visit but I doubt they make anything I wouldn't love. The salad bar is excellent too! Had the chicken tenders and they were so tender. Maple butter for... More

My friends told us what an amazing restaurant this was and we decided to join them for a meal. It was a lovely location in downtown Paducah and the inside is finished in mixture of classic decor from the turn of the last century and gold mining implements. The food is where the real gold is found though. They offer... More

Was visiting the several antique stores in the area, we were hungry and decided to eat. I enjoyed the eggs and my friend had a burger. He said the burger was great. The service was friendly, if I was in the area I would return.

Order the onion rings...awesome! Whatever you order after that will be great. The prices were very reasonable. Downhome ambiance is very real.

We walked in to see a mouth-watering list of 11 milkshake flavors, so ordered one--only to be told shake machine was broken (so ERASE the board already!). I asked how big the pancake was & was told it was plate size, but when it came it barely covered half the plate. When I commented on that, the waitress told me... More

We happened upon Gold Rush while walking around downtown Paducah one morning. Since we were hungry, we decided to go in and try them. What a great decision that was. The food was delicious, the coffee was good, hot and plentiful and the prices were great too. My sister, who is a vegetarian was concerned that she wouldn't be able... More
