Gold Nugget Tavern & Grille has a long history in Minnetonka, but its current iteration opened in 2009 after the previous iteration closed the doors in 2006 after being opened for thirty years. There was a tavern on the site before that and the one thing they all had in common was being known for great burgers. The current iteration was opened with the idea of promoting local craft beer and producing great burgers. They make their food from scratch every day and call it comfort food. The atmosphere is open and welcoming, and the service is very friendly. Their is patio dining when weather permits. In addition to their renowned burgers, their menu includes Cheeseburger Wontons, Lobster Roll, Carnitas (taco), and Gouda Mac.
