Boy, does this place take me back to my childhood--root beer floats and car-hop service. We like their clam rolls--the oil is very clean and they come out so tasty. We don't go often, but when we want a fun, eat-in car experience, we love this place.

OK Do not expect great food. A & W never had great food. But it does do wonders for your old memory's. It is worth stoping there for that old time feelings. And the food is really ok

This is an old fashion drive in restaurant with good food. The parking lot is small but you can park along the road if needed. I enjoyed their fish fry and really loved the coleslaw (finely chopped with no onions.) The milk shakes were made from soft ice cream (not my favorite) but definitely would return for the food. When we went in June it was busy (with a wait), so I can not imagine how busy it must be in July and August!
