I arrived at the Goldenrod Restaurant on a recent Summer Saturday morning at 8:00am. Plenty of places to park and was seated immediately as it was not crowded at all (my server told me by 9:00am on a Saturday in the Summer, the place would be packed). I ordered the Blueberry pancakes, which came highly recommended by a friend of... More

This is one of those places that is probably an institution in town. It's super touristy, but in a homey way. The food was okay, arrived quickly and was hot. I had the blueberry pancakes and my husband had an omelet. Really, you can't ask for more -- especially given the volume of people they serve on a Saturday morning.... More

Finished a week long stay at a cottage rental, ate breakfast on a Sat morning before departing. Given the uber-touristy setup of the whole region in general, I was pleased to have (1) a reasonably priced breakfast (where I got what I paid for), and (2) a reasonable quality breakfast akin to a good breakfast joint back home. The breakfast... More

Goldenrod has been a yearly breakfast spot of ours every August. The service is always good. This year we only went once during our week stay as the coffee was bitter and lukewarm and we were the first ones to arrive that Monday morning. Also there was no tea except for decaf. The food was typical breakfast fare and was... More

Been coming here for 30 years+ can't get enough of the salt water taffy. My favorite is any of the molasses based taffy-peanut butter, peppermint and plain molasses. My son is all of them and daddy likes lime. BEST TAFFY AROUND

We ate ate here for lunch today and we were not impressed. My son is a burger lover and he couldn't even finish it because he said it was soagy tasting. I had a club sandwich that was good but nothing to die for. The candy on other hand is very yummy and will definitely return for salt water taffy... More

We decided to go here because it seemed popular and unique. It is a little unorganized but once we got to our seat it was ok. Our waitress was not attentive at all, and also forgot to ask if we wanted drinks or anything else with our meal. So we had to call her over afterwards to order a ice... More
