We stopped in for lunch after a trip to the pumpkin patch. They were able to seat out group of 18 and provide us fast and freindly service.

We had not been to an A&W Restaurant in ** years. There were "phones" at the table where you placed your order. They were very happy to accommodate special orders and the food arrived in quick time, hot, fresh, and delicious. The waitresses were friendly, courteous, and very tolerant of our reminiscing. The restaurant was very clean and well kept.

The food is really good. I like that you can get served inside or as a drive in. Service is friendly. Please review this place so it can move up higher in ratings. Deserves to be at the top.

I haven't seen an A&W restaurant for years. It was nice to see they still existed with car side service. First the good. Easy to get in and out of. Everything we could see was clean and orderly and the service we good. We ordered the coney dog baskets (fries and root beer) which turned out to be pretty good.... More

This has to be one of the last remaining A&W restaurants that have a sit down diner that serve breakfast. Most I have been to only serve lunch. So the couple times I ate breakfast here I had the omlettes. Those have to be the best thing on the menu. Wish I had one of these here in Green Bay.

I visited there for breakfast over deer season and was very impressed. Great tasting, large servings, and very reasonable price. I love the change dispensers the waitresses carry as well.

This is a staple on a Sunday morning in Lancaster. The regulars head to our local A&W for a filling and delicious breakfast each week. It's like we're a 'breakfast club' we're so dependable. Great service, fine coffee, and other foods besides breakfast. Join us!

This restaurant is a good old fashioned A&W, complete with the drive in and everything. Don't come here if you are expecting a 5 star meal, but if you want some good, Wisconsin comfort food, definitely stop in. The staff is always friendly and the root beer is always delicious!

A third generation family owned restaurant, featuring world famous A&W Root Beer and All American Food. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We are the best choice in the area for quality and value American food.

Our restaurant is located on historic Highway 61 near downtown Lancaster, Wisconsin. First opened in 1954, Lancaster's A&W was bought by Larry and Marcia Burr in 1974 . They were the first of three generations of Burrs to own and operate Lancaster's A&W. Larry then passed the restaurant on to his son and daughter-in-law, Allan and Pamela Burr, in 1980. The restaurant has been owned and operated by Allan and Pamela's son, Joshua Burr, since 2007.
