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

We were looking for someplace else and settled on this spot and so glad we did. Got there close to closing but still got great service and great food. Be sure to try the maple butter on you roll.

Had breakfast here. The restaurant was quaint and clean. All the people working there were very friendly and helpful. The prices were reasonable and the food was top-notch in taste and quantity. Will definitely stop again if in the area in the future.

Gold Rush Cafe is the only place I know of in Paducah where you can order Scotch Eggs. Something you need to try at least once. They have unusual and delicious waffles - Smores waffle, etc. They do a great job catering also with good southern cooking.

This a is wonderful small cafe. So glad we decided to eat there for lunch. The food was cooked to perfection and homemade. Not your frozen hamburger patties either. It is kid friendly and a very relaxed atmosphere. The rating was taped to the front door and it was rated an A. We ordered hamburgers and fries with a cup... More
