The staff here is really nice to you and so helpful. The bargains they offer are just right for a family. The specials are even better. Try them out.

if you are old enough to remember the frosted mugs of root beer with a large dollop of real ice cream in it you will be sorely disappointed in todays A&W. plastic mugs and what appears to be imitation ice cream. Tried it once won't waste my calories going back

I had the papa burger with cheese curds and root beer. It was very good. 50's music playing. Not an easy place to find but I would come back.

We checked into our hotel but we were craving a late night snack. Saw the A&W and had to give it a try. Did the root beer float and were not disappointed.

The A & W offers a simple but good menu and most unique is the fact that you can order from your car. There aren't a lot of these sorts of restaurants around! We decided to order inside and sit on the patio under an umbrella. It only took a few minutes and our food was brought to the table.... More

Always fun to step back in time with a visit to A&W. Quick service, always clean & in summer it fun to have the orders brought out to ur car like years ago! And of course don't forget your root beer & the floats! Yum!

My family goes to A&W in Manitowoc about 3 times a month. The service is good and the people always are good so I cannot complain.

the Cherry limeades are really good! In my opinion Sonic is better always will be, but since there is no Sonic A & W it is!
