The Gold Dredge Restaurant is a replica of one of the original dredges used for mining from the early 1900s. This is a 2-million-pound floating restaurant in the middle of the Blue River.

The restaurant has two walkways attached to it accessed from Adams or Jefferson streets. Most of our guests walk or take shuttles from the various hotels in the area. Visitors can feed trout from the North side of the dredge during the warmer months.

Our atmosphere is phenomenal and unique, because you are sitting on a floating restaurant that resembles a dredge boat. While you dine, you can see the various artifacts from the time period the dredge was in operation.
