“As remembered”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Years ago, as a child, I vacationed in York Beach & the Goldenrod restaurant is just as I remembered. Nothing has changed, except maybe the prices. The food is not spectacular, but typical. Good service, good wholesome food, good fun - watching the taffy being made. Busy even on a rainy day in September.

“Stop for the saltwater taffy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Our New Hampshire friends brought us here specifically for the taffy. Beautiful setting, directly off the beach. The box of taffy I purchased for friends and family has suddenly disappeared....

“Love... Love... Love!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

I have been coming to Maine since I was a year old. I love the food here. The waitresses can be a little grumpy. But I still love coming here. It's also a pain to walk up the stairs to the bathroom.

“Great lunches, delicious ice cream, & out of this world saltwater taffy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Been coming here since I was born! Love their ice cream and taffy. The whole place has an old fashioned feel; definitely a York institution!

“Just like the old days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I've been vacationing in York Beach for 53 years since I was 9 months old. The Goldenrod was always a must do and still very much is. It has a certain ambiance that's hard to describe. We had wonderful lobster rolls for lunch, quite possibly the best we've had both in taste and content. Our server Sandy was very friendly and up beat, a definite attribute to the restaurant.
