Our favorites are the fried shrimp and onion rings. We have to choose between shrimp and ice cream, no room for both. A medium shrimp and small onion rings are enough for 2 adults. Ice cream servings are generous so order accordingly. Kudos to the...More

The fried seafood here is cooked well in a light coating and is delicious! The lobster rolls are also great. The ice cream servings are huge so you might just want a kiddie cone.

They have the best chicken tenders in the lake area. Good deal with tenders, French fries and coleslaw. Great price foe the meal deal.

We went specifically for some ice cream, though they sell fried seafood, hamburgers and other items. When you do order ice cream, make sure to take note that the servings are enormous! I ordered a kiddie-size cone and couldn’t eat all of it.

I went to the Goldenrod for lunch. The seafood never dissapoints. We shared a captains platter and the seafood was plentiful. More scallops and belly clams the most restaurants serve. The haddock was just right flaky and fall apart. We will continue to go.
