Never again

I've been stopping here a couple of times a year for several years. It has now declined to the point of "no return". I realize that this is fast food but it's gone way downhill. The fish today was dry and about half the thickness that it usually has been. The batter they fry in must have a new... read more

So let me start this review by saying I've been to this unfortunate establishment twice. The first time my sister and I were craving a root beer float and we pulled into the drive through ready to order. There where a few cars ahead of us but nothing excessive. We waited for 15 minutes trying to just order. The cars... More

Disgusting place to eat. I ordered the coney cheese dog that fell apart when I attempted to eat it. Additionally, the cooks were not wearing hair nets, the tables were dirty and the place smelled like dirty mop water. A friend of mine initially ordered a hamburger but was notified after he paid that they did not have hamburger patties.... More

Supposed to be an A&W and LJS combo restaurant, but only operates as LJS ... lying to all guests that they are temporarily out of root beer. We went two times in one week and both times they were 85% out of all A&W menu items.

How does and A & W run out of root beer? That was ridiculous but we were on a road trip, kids hungry and not much options out there. So I ordered chicken meals. They were out of chicken. I said are you kidding me. NO. Not kidding. So we ordered burger meals. Soda machine was broken. Had to get... More

I love both LJS and AW so this is a good lunch stop but try to stick to the drive thru. The inside of the place is usually clean however service inside is horrible. As other folks have mentioned there is always a wait, even if no one else is there. Just very slow for "fast food"

We like to stop and eat here from time to time with the kids but slowly going downhill. Our last visit, the dining area ice machine was not working, they were out of Pepsi, out of the regular A&W Root beer and the diet tasted bad. They were also out of honey mustard sauce. Things happen and you can run... More

The seafood sandwiches and platters are the normal Long John Silver fare. The restaurant is not well managed... the ice dispenser has been broken for some nine months for example... and the dining area often grubby.

Long Johns has always been kind of a guilty pleasure for me, quick fish and chips with malt vinegar… Love it… That said, the Long Johns in Charles Town is bad, really bad. A few months back they closed down, I had no idea had walked in and stood at the counter for a solid 5 minutes before a lady... More

My wife and I made the mistake of stopping here with the kids during our trip home on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. The place was not busy, but it still took several minutes to place an order and to finally receive it. We ordered two cheeseburger combos and two kids' meals (both cheeseburgers), and the food was all served cold,... More
