The food here was decent but a bit overpriced. There is not much for someone like myself who doesn't eat meat or fish, I did enjoy the cheese fries but it would have been nice if they had a veggie burger or something. They do...More

The service was very great as we were the first ones there. The burgers and fries were cooked great, the root beer tasted amazing and timeless and the ice cream great. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

Food was ok. Root beer floats delicious! Outside seating was iffy during the rain. Service was average. Nothing special, except the root beer floats. Everything was just average.

This A&W provides fast and friendly service. The outdoor area stays very clean despite the fact that they are very busy. Highly efficient staff. Wish they stayed open later than 6:00.

A & W restaurant, excellent food and service. Indoor and outdoor seating. Yummy root beer floats. The burgers were also excellent. I did try a hot dog, and it wasn't anything special, just an average hot dog.
