Family stopped in here for lunch after tackling White Face Mountain. Set outside and received table service. Burgers and fries were great. Good onion rings too. Root beer was ice cold. Kids meals are a plus. I don’t remember our waiters name but he was...very nice and prompt. Overall, a very pleasant experience.More

We spent the morning hiking Whiteface Mountain. We wanted to follow up our All-American day with an All-American meal. The simplicity and perfection of a great burger, perfectly cooked onion rings, and a creamy root beer float cannot be overstated. It was an outstanding meal...and the perfect roadside stop.More

We were visiting from Virginia, had not been to an A&W for many years. We had the chili dog with fries and a root beer float. The service was excellent…friendly and efficient. The food was very good…just as we remembered the root beer float was...delicious. It was nice to see an A&W . We recommend a stop!More

Waitstaff really hustles to bring out everybody’s food as fast as they can. Bacon cheeseburgers are a little messy, but taste great. Of course you have to have a root beer float and the medium size is plenty! Just don’t push your straw into the...ice cream because it overflows like a volcano. Ask for extra napkins when they take your order and you will be all set! We come here right after we get set up at the nearby campground.More

We stopped here for lunch on a Sunday. We ate in our truck as it was a bit chilly to sit outside and there was no inside seating. Staff was friendly. Food was good. Would return. Would recommend.

We visited in July and August when we were visiting the region. The root beer floats are a must- would travel just for that!

Loved the theme of this place. We sat outside at picnic table but there was also car service like at the car hop places back in the day. Menu was basic hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken along with FF and onion rings. Many beverages to chose from....Waitress service was quick and everyone friendly. Food tasted great. Really good hotdogs!!! Hubby said hamburger was good too. Fun place for a quick meal. Check it out...More

The old fashion A&W, even the bear that you can take a picture with. Great fast service even when they were busy. Can’t beet their root beer float, but the burger and onion rings came close.

Great place to stop at for lunch. Enjoyed the burgers and fries. The corn dog nuggets were a pleasant little appetizer for us all to share. They had outdoor table service and when we went, the inside was still closed due to Covid.
