This is the kind of place that should be on the Food Network as a real old time, charming ,genuine soda fountain type place.You cna watch the taffy beign mad ein the window. But the sparkling clean shiny wood tables, beamed ceilings, and fireplace inside add to the charm. Service is always friendly. I love the mocha ice cream soda with chocolate syrup and coffee ice cream. You can get a decent crab roll and other sandwiches at real value. Breakfast is good, too.Take the kids- telll them; "this is what is was like in Grandma and Grandpa's Day" ! And do get some of that yummy peanut butter taffy!

I have dined yearly (sometimes twice yearly) at the Goldenrod since I was 5 and that was 50 years ago! The decor and atmosphere has not changed at all, the staff are always friendly, hardworking and very helpful. The food is excellent, simple, old fashioned but my favorite by far is the Checkerberry Chip Ice Cream. I have traveled a great deal and have never found this flavor anywhere but in York, Maine. I picked checkerberries as a child in NE and the flavor is spot on. Top it with hot penuche fudge and you have a dessert worth driving 3 hours for. Can't imagine summer without a trip to The Goldenrod!

The food is ok, the real treat is the candy shop.

Not a lot of options for a veg. But for a quick sandwich and some taffy it's terrific
