The restaurant is open but they rfuse to serve meat 1 hour before close. I asked the gentleman why bother opening he suggested that I order fries and a drink. I suggested that maybe they should just close if they are not willing to sell their full menu.

Came here because other places were closed (because it was mid-week and off-peak season), but had a decent burger at least. Fries with the cajun spices were nice though. There are probably more local, specialty places to eat in Deer Lake, but at least this was what we could find that was open.

The restaurant has quick access off the highway. It has a drive thru and a eatin area typical of most fast food joints. The only disappointment was that the onion rings were "not available" . Burgers were good. Make sure you have the root beer for which A&W are famous for!

We stopped here since we were staying in Deer Lake for the night. They seemed unorganized and they were all young employees. There were flies everywhere. The back door was open which is probably why there were so many. The burger was quite crispy. Didn't have any spoons. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. Didn't seem sanitary. The ice cream was...

Clean efficient service. It's been years since I've entered an A&W and I'm glad I did. The portions of bacon on the burger were ample. The dressings were tasty.
