I love this A&W! It may be a percentage of nostalgia but the food is good too. This is such a unique place in that you can still pull up in your car and get waited on, then if you stay they put the tray holder on your car window and that's where your order goes. There is also a... More

Great ole fashioned A@W food. Large menu. ALWAYS busy in town, they have a couple summer events that are fun too. Alas cause of the hard winters, they close for a couple months.

When I was a child, my grandmother would bring us here for root beer floats, so when we were in the area, I had to stop there with my wife. Even though it was brisk out, the food came out hot and in larger than expected portions (we had to take half of it home). The servers are rough around... More

It was a nice change as there are not that many a&aw around anymore. You have sit in your car to eat here just like old a&w but there is a separate spot to the side to sit. When we were in the side area someone came and parked there car right in front of us so we could not... More

This place is only open in the summer, and it's so popular the drive-in stalls are frequently filled and cars and campers are parked on the street. The food is good drive-in fare, the root beer is good, the prices are reasonable, and we wish they were open all year. The other local restaurants are probably glad they aren't. :)

The food is authentic A &W. Service was wonderful. Waitresses were very friendly and made sure to check back with you. The only thing that I wasn't happy with is the restaurant doesn't take debit cards so make sure that you bring cash.

Thank Kirstie P
