When in (or near) Wickenburg make sure you stop in to experience a great cup of coffee, some breakfast, lunch, or perhaps an evening of fine dining. Designed and built in the mid l800's the Gold Nugget still has some of the orignal fixtures that were imported from France. Remodeled in 1980 the "Rose" Stained Glass Window and elaborate oak woodwork was added along with a Baby Grand Player Piano. The restaurant seats approximately 200 guests excluding the coffee shop.
The Gold Nugget has had the pleasure of being host to famous personalities such as the Legendary Clint Eastwood, Nick Adams, Ben Johnson, and the Ex-Vice President Dan Quayle, recently the Phoenix resident Alice Cooper.
