Great ice cream and taffy

Great ice cream and salt water taffy! The space gets crowded but it was cute and the staff was very friendly.

We were recently driving through York after visiting the Nubble Lighthouse and saw this quaint restaurant. This definitely felt like like a time warp as they had a ice cream/malt bar area and the decor was a little dated. I thought the food was pretty good and after our server finally came to our table (it took way too long... More

This a great little sweet shop that also has a gift shop and restaurant. The gift shop was cute and over priced. The restaurant was very busy as it was lunch time so we sat at the counter. The food was average, very small portions and very overpriced for what you were given to eat. Service was fast, the ice... More

Five of us dined her about 4pm, so the restaurant was relatively quiet. Everything started well, the food served was good, not exceptions. I had lobster bisque, did not see any lobster per se, but the taste was good. The lobster roll was good, plain on a butter and grilled hotdog roll. The waitress disappeared for a really long time,...

Very pleasant, family oriented restaurant with lots of basic selections to choose from, including nightly specials. The delicious desserts and candy are made on site, and provide a great ending to a family dinner. Historic building and friendly atmosphere. Be forewarned that the restrooms are UPstairs...no elevator.

We visited hoping to see taffy being made. Unfortunately it wasn't during our visit, we went inside to try some and the place was packed, it was hard to look around. We ended up leaving. We found some taffy that was pre packaged at another store and got it to try. It was rock hard.

Just went to this place for the umpteenth time. Had lunch: lobster and crab rolls with chowder. Not cheap, but very nostalgic. Wooden, high-gloss tables by the windows. Drinks came in old style glasses in metal holders. Bright, young students waiting tables for the summer. Later on in our trip, we got dessert late at night. My wife had a... More

Every year we go to York Beach and always stop at the Goldenrod to watch the taffy being made and have a ice cream cone. The ice cream is made at the Goldenrod an is to die for!

We ate in the Goldenrod at about 7:00 PM. It seemed most of the specials were gone and after ordering my wife had to choose another meal because they had ran out. The food was ok. I ordered the Turkey dinner and it was pretty good except the stuffing was clearly Stove Top. For a business that makes it's own... More
