Original owner Steve Thomas and his wife, Bessie, opened the first Golden Nugget off North Main Street in downtown Dayton, then moved the restaurant to its South Dixie Highway location. The family opened its second restaurant at North Keowee Street and Stanley Avenue in 1975.

Steve Thomas died in 1996, and his daughters have operated the restaurants.
