The order staff are pleasant and helpful. The atmosphere is family friendly. The food is tasty, if a bit heavy on the fried side. Yet a good, satisfying meal can be had here.I particularly enjoy the fish offerings, as otherwise I'd not be eating fish enough. That malt vinegar is available is a special part of the experience.

Food is nothing special - hamburgers not the best in town and so-so fish dinners. Miss the chilled glass mugs A&W used to use. Also wish the jukebox was operational as before.

We love that you can get either A&W burgers or Long John Silvers Fish. The Root Beer can't be beat! Definitely a must try!

I"m a Root Beer fan, and the A&W's the classic good rootbeer. A heavy vanilla overtone, and very sugary - but good drinkin' on a budget. It's under four dollars a gallon. I try to keep one in the fridge. Food frightens me.

This place is not closed like the site says. It was really good food and the Rootbeer was sooo good. The restaurant was very clean and service was outstanding. I'll be back again. I also enjoy the Long John Silvers that share the location. Great place to go.

I love the old fashioned atmosphere and the juke box. It is clean and well kept, good food, average prices. The people are fairly friendly, although I'm sure this all depends on the time of day you are there. Not as wide of a selection of foods as I would like, but over-all pretty good!

A&W: I remember the old days of A&W root beer so going to a new version of the old is just not the same. Aside from the atmosphere, this is a Long John Silver resteraunt combined with the A&W so you are bound to get similiar tastes. However, root beer floats are by far the best ever.
