  • Speaking from experience they frown upon you pulling your taffy while watching them pull theirs...
  • Be sure to watch the taffy making process through the window, from the melting of butter and sugar through the stretching and finally the wrapping.
  • Checkerberry Chip Ice Cream (wintergreen ice cream with chocolate chips) and all the flavors of saltwater taffy, but especially the Peanut Butter Molasses kisses, are musts!
  • This place is the best. Relax and enjoy the little details, like the old soda- fountain style soda glasses in metal holders. (love those!) Tuna melt is awesome, as is coleslaw, the clubs, everything
  • A great family restaurant and you can watch the saltwater taffy being pulled in the window!
  • Best clam chowder EVER!!!
  • This is the best French toast served by a restaurant anywhere.
  • Order coffee, turkey and bacon club and the French toast breakfast. Everything was delicious and the staff was very friendly. Favorite place so far on this vacation.
  • I thought I hated all taffy until I tried the product at the Goldenrod. It's amazing and the Maine blueberry flavor is fantastic.
  • Peanut butter taffy is the best!
  • Definitely have the carmel corn!
  • If you have never had an egg cream, this is the place to do it! Try chocolate!
  • turkey club sandwich is a great pick
  • Taffy that is hand made every day
  • Taffy is great!
  • Freshly squeezed lemonade... I enjoyed breakfast so much! It was very busy during the season...too busy, maybe...
  • One of the prettiest places in the world. Stand out front and watch taffy being made on 100 year old machines, slip in to the 50's style counter and have a root Beer float, or sit down for a chowder
  • Love the lobster rolls! And the frappes are great.
  • $10 minimum for credit cards.
  • Everything.
