“Go for the Greek”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

They say they are a steak house, but are owned by a Greek man. My steak was acceptable (a bit over-cooked), but my wife's Greek lamb dish was delicious.

“Maybe just a bad night, BUT”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

We went with another couple early (5:45) on a Sunday evening before a 7:30 performance at the Del Webb Theater. I had made a reservation, but it wasn't necessary. The 4 of us were seated by the owner at a table for 6 (too big, and tables for 4 were available). We sat for a LONG time before having even drink orders taken. Then the owner came around and said he had a server walk off the job. I understand. Personnel issues happen. But he went to every table and told the same story but didn't pinch in and help the lone server take care of the dining room. He did take our drink order, but that was it. We received our salads in short order, but our main dishes arrived shortly before 7:00. Bread came hastily after the main dishes were presented. We were very rushed, and the food frankly was not that good. The "special" Greek lamb dish was greasy. The table next to us came later (also going to the theater) and had to take their entire meal in "to go" boxes.
If the proprietor doesn't take more interest in helping to serve his guests at a time of need, I am not interested in being a patron again.

“Awesome food and hospitality!”
Reviewed 12 February 2014 via mobile

We went with another couple on a slow Wednesday night and couldn't have asked for better hospitality or food! The rib eye and prime rib couldn't have been better and every employee we came across was so very friendly.

“From a tour guide”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

50 people descended on the Gold Nugget, hungry and wanting a good meal. All were not disappointed. Fast, efficient and excellent breakfasts and lunches were served. Added bonus was Madam Mariah and Rais'in Caine who greeted us just like in the "Old West". Madam Mariah shared the story of the Ghost of the Gold Nugget while we ate. We even had enough time to take a peek at the main street of Wickenberg. Definitely a great place to stop. But, take some time to enjoy the local scenery. Next time we will stop for a little longer. Definitely deserves 5 stars!
