Carol was our car hop and she was fantastic - friendly, personable, speedy! Burgers and floats were delicious. The root beer float was what drew us in, but the whole experience was better than expected! We'll be back for sure!

Very fun place to go in the middle of a busy village! Thee best clam rolls without going to the coast. You MUST have a root beer float as well! Very good food and reasonable prices. Right next to battleground campground which is very convenient....More

Disorganized service. Some people walk in and get served others waited. No order. Tables are dirty. Service is very very poor. Not worth the stop for "fast food". Waitress was glad we left. My handicapped father with ALS walked through stones to get to a...More

Talk about flashbacks! I hadn't seen an A&W stand in years. Last one was when I was a kid. (That was a lot of years ago.) This place was just about how I remembered. Good food, quick service, friendly staff. Curb service!

Ordered foot long cod recommended by car hop. It was a delicious flaky cod. They also serve other seafood especially whole belly clams which was also recommended. Of course, the best frosted mug of root beer soda.

Stopped for a quick lunch while at a conference in Lake George. Wait staff took awhile to get my order, but were friendly. Food service took longer than expected also, and food arrived only luke-warm. Fries were cold and not good. AW Cheeseburger was unexpectedly...More
