This place is a combo A&W / Long John Silvers. Though the food is average for what you'd expect at this chain the service is TERRIBLE. I've used drive-thru twice and they messed it up, first time they didn't include my crab cakes, which were...More

Remembrance of my Youth, icedcold frosty mug, creamy root beer! The diet is the best. They just need the Teen Burger!

A & W Root Beer on tap in unlimited quantity makes this great for me. Their menu selections offer Long John Silver's full cuisine plus hamburgers and other items not deep fat fried. This is a good family place.

Food is nothing special - hamburgers not the best in town and so-so fish dinners. Miss the chilled glass mugs A&W used to use. Also wish the jukebox was operational as before.

We love that you can get either A&W burgers or Long John Silvers Fish. The Root Beer can't be beat! Definitely a must try!

I"m a Root Beer fan, and the A&W's the classic good rootbeer. A heavy vanilla overtone, and very sugary - but good drinkin' on a budget. It's under four dollars a gallon. I try to keep one in the fridge. Food frightens me.

I love the old fashioned atmosphere and the juke box. It is clean and well kept, good food, average prices. The people are fairly friendly, although I'm sure this all depends on the time of day you are there. Not as wide of a selection...More

A&W: I remember the old days of A&W root beer so going to a new version of the old is just not the same. Aside from the atmosphere, this is a Long John Silver resteraunt combined with the A&W so you are bound to get...More
