Nice place for a meal but the food (Friday Night Fish Fry) was mediocre at best. We also ordered (twice) a couple of Brandy Manhattans and they had no clue how to make them, But I suspect the bottle beer should be a-ok. Nice owners but don't order Fish Fry or a Manhattan.

Owners Carol and Randy are nice folks. Their bacon cheeseburger is the best in the county, in my opinion. Their Blood Mary is awesome but not inexpensive.

In addition to having the BEST Bloody Mary in the trip-state region, the atmosphere is fun and funky. A toy train runs around the interior up by the ceiling. Old photos and memorabilia add to the fun. A life-size Elvis statue greets you providing a fun photo-op. The service is sometimes slow but not for lack of effort. The staff... More

Great place. I bet this place has not change much in the last several decades and glad that it has not. Great wings and old school Hamm's beer hard to beat. Thanks for keeping it real!

Tried to have lunch there but was greeted with the above caption. I have eaten here before, I had the club sandwich and found it to be a little pricey and then realized how big it was. It was like a 2 in 1.

I've been frequenting Good Ol' Days since the day it opened. It was popular then, and it has only gotten more popular. The food is always good, the staff is always friendly, and the atmosphere is very welcoming. You may have read some reviews that talk about slow service. Well, the service isn't slow because they don't work hard, it's... More

My wife, toddler son, and I stopped here for breakfast at 10 am the last Monday of August. It was 1.5 hours before our food arrived. It wasn't that busy. A party that came in several minutes after us was waited on before us. The food for parties that arrived after we ordered was served before we got our food.... More

A bar and burger joint. Not bad. Just not too inspiring. I had a BLT. Came with plenty of bacon -- always a good sign. Waffle fries were quite tasty. Not at all vegetarian friendly so if that is a necessity then look elsewhere.

After the mine tour we sat outside and had a great lunch at a great price.There are very few places to eat in Soudan, so we were happy to find the Good Ol Days.
