We wanted to like this place. We tried. It is a cute local diner. We on a Sunday and it wasn't that crowded (should have been a red flag). We waited what seemed like forever just to get a stupid menu. And then we waited an eternity to get drinks. And 30 minutes into it was when we finally got... More

We enjoyed a breakfast here on our first day in Golden. Very good quality food, plenty of options including a range of teas and a good children menu. Everything you would expect from an American breakfast. Good service, simple but comfortable and relaxing surroundings.

Reminded me of my younger days while traveling with my parents. The counter, the tables the whole package filled my head with memories. Food is good service was okay, the volume of patrons may have been a factor.

We walked to the Golden Diner early Sunday morning and were lucky to find a table for a most delicious breakfast. This is a popular place so get there early, seats fill fast and often there is a wait. The service is wonderful, everyone works as a team and made sure your coffee cup was topped off. I highly recommend... More

The Golden diner is a perennial favorite. Wonderful food. Friendly staff. Good prices. Their corned beef hash is the best in the region: flavorful, no fat, no grease, no fillers.

During our three day visit to Golden, we ate at the Golden Diner twice - once for lunch and then back for breakfast the following day. The prices are moderate and the food was great - very fresh, hot, and hearty portions and they serve breakfast all day long. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. During peak hours, it... More

Another restaurant in Golden where you will likely have to wait. To be honest they have a card right on the table that says that. It is a small place with no real room to stand around inside without feeling like you are creeping on the current diners. You can always wait outside, but in Dec.-ugh. They only have one... More
