Stopped in the store for some of their salt-water taffy. It still tastes as good as it did when I was a kid.

I cannot lie. I have a soft spot for The Goldenrod. I love that it never changes. We three felt lucky to be snug and having what felt like little kids' dinners (clam chowder; grilled cheese, and eggs, among us). We may have come back...More

We had a party of seven, aside from putting two chairs near one end, they were very accommodating. Portions are not the largest, but the food was good. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

We always try to have breakfast at the Goldenrod! Whatever you want, they have! After breakfast you can buy their famous taffy to take home and watch it being made! Shopping is all around and the Short Sands Beach too!

Maybe it's different now that I'm an adult but I've been coming to Maine since I was 3 with my family. I loved going to York and no trip was complete without a stop at the Goldenrod. We'd go there for breakfast at least 3...More

We always stop at the Goldenrod during each visit to Maine. Their famous candy shop is part of the restaurant, where they make their taffy on site. Children have great fun watching the taffy-making process. The Goldenrod is centrally located in York Beach, and is...More

Their sister restaurant The Lobster Cove is open all year. The hours and days are limited, so call ahead. Also try the Fisherman's Dock on Rt 1. Food is better and hours were more predictable last I checked.
