Great spot

It is a great spot for a lunch and desert. Located right near the beach, the food is good and deserts are sweet. I would recommend going here.

I cannot comment on the food. However we were passing through town and noticed this place as we were walking around. The restaurant was packed. We got take out ice cream from the window. It was delicious. Will try the restaurant next time we are in town.

Plenty of seating. Friendly staff. Staff was well groomed in matching "uniforms". Nice variety on the menu. Reasonably priced. We passed by several places by before selecting this place. We were very pleased with our meal.

The Goldenrod has the best smells of any place I've ever been! It's popular and usually pretty crowded. The best salt-water taffy I've ever had! It's one of my favorite places in the world. I first came here when I was about 4 years old, and now I'm 47.

A fun place with decent food and really makes you feel like you are on vacation. After you leave, you have the quaint village of York Beach to explore - Great location

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
