This A & W is close to a greyhound bus depot so it is well used but not too busy. There is a good turnover of food and it does not sit for a long time. There is a lot of tables. The restrooms are clean and well looked after.

Likely the best place in Dryden for traditional bacon and egg breakfast. Easy over really was easy over. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the breakfast.

Always Love an A&W Root Beer. Chicken Grill & a Ice Cold Root Beer. The Sweet Potato fries are amazing.

We had very good service here and the inside seems much cleaner and friendly than in the past. The food took a little while but not overly long and it was fresh and all was good. Would certainly recommend going here.

This is a good sized A&W with plenty of seating. Staff was super friendly and service was very good. Food was pretty much to A&W spec and was served hot. Will likely stop here whenever we're through Dryden again.

I have had the opportunity to make two in restaurant visits and one drive through visit to the Dryden A&W in the past two weeks. Wow, there is a huge improvement over what it was over the last ownership. The outside AND the inside both look better, with fresh paint and cleaner interior space. The staff looks smarter - when...

After a number of years of "going downhill" under a previous owner, this A&W is now under new ownership. I have had two visits there since the new owner came in and can say that the service and staff have taken a turn for the better. The new owner has indicated the location will be undergoing some upgrading very soon.... More
