This place is very clean. The is a sit down restaurant as well as an old fashion soda fountain. The penny counter is fun for kids. Lots of great sweets made right on sight. It's fun for kids as well as people who are children at heart to watch the taffy machines in the window.

Iconic place in York Beach! You have to take your kids and watch the taffy being made. Great candy, ice cream and breakfast and lunch. Penny candy haven for kids. Clean and kid friendly.

If you want to watch taffy being made, eat some great sandwiches, clam chowder, egg cream or ice cream, this is the place for you! Great for children. Wait staff in the restaurant side was very attentive. Loved buying the freshly made taffy for friends. Our second year visiting this great institution that has been in business for over a... More

It's always a treat to eat lunch at the Goldenrod when we go to York Beach. It goes without saying that their salt water taffy is probably the best on the planet, but having a meal there is a treat too. We always feel as if we've stepped back in time when we eat there, because it has the feel... More

The Goldenrod is located right next to York Beach in the downtown area. They are a restaurant, gift shops, and candy store. They are FAMOUS for their salt water taffy and they have the BEST in Maine and in the country. The taffy is homemade and you can watch them make it during the day in the front windows. They... More

Best pancakes ever. Their entire menu is perfect. Can't go to the beach without getting saltwater taffy and their wide assorted candy selection. I take everyone I know there and have been going for over 35 yrs. I LOVE this place

We found this gem over 25 years ago and haven't missed a breakfast on our vacations here, yet! I always get French toast but my husband mixes it up a bit. In 25 years, I've only had the French toast come, one time, slightly under cooked. The service is fast, friendly, professional and if they're not too busy, we love... More

Wonderful place and full of nostalgia. Goldenrod is a must see if you are in Wells/York, Maine. Only drawback is that this restaurant is not handicap friendly for those wishing to use the restroom!

The food was OK, the service was OK and the prices were OK. A party of 5 had breakfast on a Sunday morning. Toast was forgotten on one of our meals and the coffee went empty a bit longer then it should have. The omelets have a very strange consistency to the egg. We weren't sure if it was real... More
