Enjoyed lunch with my kids, they had the usual grilled cheese and hot dog that kids usually want. I ordered the seafood roll which was very good. I also ordered a side order of potato salad, this tasted like pre-made store bought potato salad, not homemade.

Except for the spicy black bean burger the rest of our food was tasteless -- tuna melt, eggs with toast, veggie omelette, all without flavor! Also our daughter's waffle with "strawberries" turned out to be gloppy strawberry sauce that saturated the whole waffle! We had to get a new one just to taste the waffle. Went because we figured it... More

We (2 adults and 2 toddlers ages 4 and 2) had a delicious breakfast. My husband had the western omelet with egg white, I had 2 eggs and toast, and the girls split 1 chocolate chip pancake with a side of bacon. The fresh squeezed OJ was one of the best I've ever had! The service was quick and attentive.... More

Very Good food, service and prices. Had a great lunch and ice cream. The place was packed at lunch time so plan ahead. The taffy counter is not to be missed if only for the smell of the taffy made on site...ice cream too!

Not the best food around but decent sandwiches for a light lunch, fun to sit and watch the people in York. Love to watch the taffy being made, their salt water taffy is delicious. Polite staff. Would definitely go again!

The Goldenrod is a well-established York Beach institution. It was founded in 1896 by Edward and Mattie Talpey. Today’s Goldenrod has a number of features. First is the candy store section with the salt water taffy for which Goldenrod is FAMOUS, plus some newer products. Salt water taffy is made fresh daily. Second is the full-service restaurant that serves breakfast,... More

We have been coming here for years - usually for breakfast. We stopped in for a late lunch the other day. My wife and I both had raspberry lime Ricky to drink - can't remember the last time we had one! I had the seafood salad and my wife had the tuna melt sandwich. Both were excellent. We also picked...
