Stumbled upon this wonderful local asset while exploring York. I've had the famous Goldenrod Kisses before but never realized their history. You can see them being made at various stages of the process. When you enter the building it is a restaurant and a candy counter. It also has an old fashion soda fountain bar. Great place to take the... More

Goldenrod has no pretensions of fine dining - but its "basic eats" are consistently excellent, along with the beauty of the restaurant itself, and its consistently good service.

Well, the Goldenrod with it's fabulous kisses and ice cream sodas had me so wishing I was back there at York Beach Maine and the Goldenrod,--it inspired me to EMail my daughter at her home in San Diego,--- from my home in 100 degree Phoenix AZ., and ask her if she had time to go to the Goldenrod with me...

We've been visiting Goldenrod for years! They never disappoint! Great atmosphere and food! Our kids love to try to get a seat at the bar, and look at all the candy! It's also fun to watch the taffy being made. Highly recommended!

The Goldenrod has been a mainstay (no pun intended) of my Maine vacations quite literally for as long as I can remember. Came here as a child with my parents, as a teen with my girlfriends, as a mom with my kids, and now still a favorite spot. One step inside the door and the smells, and the sounds of... More

Not to be missed on a visit to York Beach. The whole family will enjoy watching the candy kisses being made and having a delicious Goldenrod ice cream!

The food was good, it is a historical building and place, the kids enjoyed it and so did we. A tad expensive but all worth it when on holidays.

No trip to York would be complete without a visit - or more than one! - to Goldenrod's. The taffy is the best in the world. Lunch at the counter is a must, and the ice cream is truly delicious. The flavors are unique and the ice cream is smooth and rich, with good prices for the sizes. Plus, every... More

Walking in the door brings back memories of our youth and the feeling we'd get at a penny candy type of store. We didn't eat a meal here but we did buy some taffy. This was the hardest taffy we have ever had; you must suck on it to let it melt before eating. Maybe we are just spoiled by... More
