Comfort food--yum

Went on a cold and rainy day and had delicious soup and sandwiches--enjoyable root beer float and don't forget to get candy (taffy) on your way out--this is the spot!!!

This place is completely Classic! Great sandwiches and old fashion taffy. The staff is always great . Just make sure you pay the meter for parking as York Maine meter maid walks back and forth. This place only opens in summer, a must stop in southern Maine

I've only tried the candy here and the taffy is some of the best I've ever tried. It has a great atmosphere and they have a lot of employees to help out.

We have been coming here for years and this visit was just as good as the last! The food and waitstaff were excellent. The candy shop with the homemade salt water taffy you can watch being made is great fun. This place was busy!! (as usual)

The clam chowder was recommended to us by a fellow traveler in St. John, NB. I could hardly wait to try it. I thought it was very good, but nothing better than some canned clam chowders I've eaten (I've had some good ones, but never for $6.95).

Goldenrod is a nostalgic trip back in time as you watch the taffy pulling machine and have a taste of the plethora of fudges and delightful and beautiful chocolates.Everything is done perfectly.

The pancakes were good, it was nice that they have real maple syrup that you could order. The eggs were done they way that we like not under or overcooked. All in all a good place to have an American breakfast. Diner like.

Very nice , clean and inviting restaurant . Enjoyed the Fresh Halibut dinner which was a special. Excellent value and sizable portions. Good restaurant for families, and they also offer homemade ice cream and salt water taffy made while you watch.
