I stopped in for lunch, not very crowded, but seating and service seemed a bit unorganized. The hostess seemed more concerned for her McDonald's and break then the guests. I had the Honey BBQ super melt. I love this sandwich and have it often when at Friendly's. I was rather disappointed on this visit as the presentation of the dish... More

Newly renovated and cleaned up. Looks good. Same old Friendly's though. Fresh paint booths and lighting. Same old service that we're all familiar with.

I had stopped eating Friendly's because the food no longer tastes food, but in the last year I have bought half gallons of ice cream to go. A couple of weeks ago, they finished a full renovation, so I thought I would try again. Big mistake! I ordered the fried clam meal with fries and cole slaw. The clams were... More

I grew up always going to Friendly's . Over the years, it has changed hands several times. Now, as a senior citizen, I miss their senior menu. It has undergone many changes, some positive, others not. When traveling, my husband and I still like to frequent the restaurant if there is one near buy. With smaller appetites, the senior menu...

My wife and I recently visited this Friendly's after seeing a movie across the street. We really like the people that work here, everyone is so nice. Our waitress was very accommodating. The food is standard but the ice cream sundaes are great. Reese's Pieces sundaes are the best!

We went there to have some ice-cream and coffee and tea. The ice-cream was very good at a decent value for price. So far so good, now getting to the issues which made this only a mediocre visit. My wife ordered a coffee, which tasted awful. It was very weak, it tasted more liked water with a hint of coffee... More

Went there this morning and the place and food have gone down hill. Not clean. Took 20 minutes to get our coffee and 30 for our food and they were not busy. Couldn't cut my egg and when I turned it over , it was because there was a piece if cellophane stuck to it. Staff did not seem to... More

It is a chain (in case you didn't know), which has operated since 1935. I love their ice cream (but you can buy that in the supermarket now). I like the big two do breakfast. You can get eggs any style (they will do omelet style for 85 cents extra), meat (choice of bacon, sausage or ham) and french toast/pancakes.... More

This is a typical Friendly's. Grand kids like the ice cream. The food is acceptable and the service is usually fast and courteous. Price is typical of he average no-frills sit down restaurant.

I am not a fan of Friendly's- but the kids wanted to go on last day of school vacation. I had Pastrami melt that was so so- My wife likes to eat slow and she felted rushed. The kids enjoyed the build your own Sundae. You pick a ice cream and 3 toppings. They bring the toppings in a small... More
