We shopped here for salt water taffy, which we pick out the kinds we like and do not buy the boxed ones. We also bought several other types of candy, they have chocolates, fudge, etc. All typical for the type of shop. We also got ice cream from here which was very good, but not the best we've had. It is usually kind of busy in there when we go and hard to move around the place to pick things out. I don't know if that is good or bad.

we try to eat at the Goldenrod every time we were in York, and were able to have lunch there at the end of the season this year. The wait staff are always friendly and pleasant and the food good and affordable. It is a great place for breakfast or lunch. NO french fries though, only chips, if that matters to anyone!

My family has been taking the trip up to York Maine for over seven years. We always make a point of going to the Goldenrod to watch them make the fresh salt water taffy. One of the other must do things is to head inside for a milkshake at the counter. It is like going back in time to the old fashioned soda shops. Fresh ice cream blended in the metal container, poured into a glass with the leftovers wait for you in the metal container on the bar. It is great family fun and my kids 13, 10 and 5 beg to go back every year.

Our annual trip to Maine and the York Beach area meant a stop at the Goldenrod Restaurant for saltwater candy kisses for family and office and a delicious meal. We arrived about 11am to a busy candy counter but in between breakfast and lunch crowd at the restaurant. I enjoyed a lunch special with soup of the day,(8 bean with ham) while my girlfriend had a selection from the "served all day" breakfast menu. Our waitress was wonderfully attentive and friendly and food was delivered promptly. Kisses, nice meal...missions accomplished

They still make the taffy where you can watch from the window outside. There are all sorts of different flavors. They also have other candy, a restaurant and ice cream. Probably the best & freshest saltwater taffy you'll find!
