Welcome to Gold Nugget Tavern & Grille!

The Gold Nugget is home to the best burger in the Twin Cities and so say the people at the 2014 Twin Cities Burger Battle. We also feature handcrafted sandwiches, soups and salads, made from scratch in our kitchen. Our beer menu focused on local craft beers and outstanding national selections, we always have something new from our neighborhood brew masters.

Everyone in your family, on your team, or from you company can find something to please their palate. We also have a great kid’s menu and gluten-sensitive offerings.

We were there to celebrate our granddaughter's 17th birthday. There were seven of us; service was cheerful and prompt. Food was very good, as usual. No disappointments at all!

Father’s day dinner with grandparents and kids, made reservations for outdoor seating with open table. When we arrived, hostess stated they didn’t take reservations for outdoor seating even though the option is listed. Server was great. Food took way too long, no clean silverware, no clean glasses, waited a long time for drinks, ordered our usual appetizer (pretzel w dip) and it was terrible - not the same quality at all. Overall experience led us to believe it is under new ownership.

The service was dismal, they ran out of cups and silverware so it took forever to get our drinks and when our food came, we had to go looking for silverware.

We used to love the Gold Nugget and have been there many times. Maybe this was a freak occurrence but on our last visit, the food was very average and under cooked. Our fries were not crispy. We had one order of the fish and chips and the fish was wiggly - not crispy. We had one jucy lucy that was ordered medium rare - which was served raw in the center. They redid this and it was so well done that there was no cheese in the center (this was on the house). We have no desire at this point to return - which is a shame. On the bright side, the drinks were good and the fried pickles were amazing.

Gold Nugget is always good. I tried something other than their fantastic burgers and wish I would have had a burger. It was good but the burgers are where it’s at!!

This is the second year in a row that my family has eaten at the Gold Nugget's Mother's Day brunch. The food is excellent. Everything was fresh and well prepared. Even the breakfast potatoes were amazing.

We like GN! It's a great place when you have that desire for a great burger. They have creative choices, the food is fresh, obviously a scratch kitchen! It's our local go-to for good food, especially the burgers. They also have a good happy hour with good snack items. Not too busy... and I often wonder why. Great place to hang out, or meet a friend for a cold beer.

Underwhelmed by the 23$/person buffet. Would have liked more vegetarian options instead of the typical meat, cheese, egg set up.
