Waitresses take your order from your vehicle and bring your food on a tray that clamps on your window. Just like the good old days. You can also dine in or on the patio. Nice location by Lake Huron, just North of the 4 corners in Lexington. Walking distance from downtown. Great ice cold root beer in a frosty mug!

We love this A & W and travel up there for lunch about once or twice per month during the summer. We love the option for outdoor seating! We've always had the best and friendliest service. Food is excellent and of course, so is the root beer! Highly recommended for couples and families to grab a bite to eat and... More

Love A&W root beer. Food wasn't the best we both had Mamas chicken fingers. Had not had them in several years not sure if the A&W quality has gone down or it was just this place. Nice indoor & outdoor seating.

Cute A & W with lots of outdoor seating! We enjoyed a root beer under covered tables. Enjoyed the nostalgia of old days where you are served in your car!

Food is served quickly and hot. We've been eating at the A & W in Lexington Michigan for over 25 years. The menu has everything from burgers to salads to ice cream to floats. The food and service is always consistent.

Its an A&W folks. The food is low rate and the restaurant and service are very average. Its sad when I see 5 star ratings for a fast food place. Especially one that's only 3 miles from my house(so i know it well). Only open 5 months out of the year and so generally mediocre. Me giving it 3 stars... More

Our family met two others families at Lakeside A and W this summer. We had never eaten here before, even though we heard it was really good. The food, from hamburgers to cheese fries to root beer floats, was great! The seating outside was comfortable and the service was fast. The young wait staff is extremely polite and efficient. The...

My wife suggested something "daring" yesterday (Saturday Sep 28) on our way home from the lake. "Let's stop at A&W for a 12" chili cheese dog an fries. We are on a low carb, low fat, low flavor diet for a variety of reasons but this sounded too good to pass up. We pulled in and waited for the car... More
