This is Friendly's - you go for the ice cream mostly. However when they have the lobster rolls in the summertime it is a great deal and they have good service. The place is generally packed with seniors having lunch with each other or family who are visiting them. The staff are very good and very attentive.

We stopped in here for lunch after playing nine holes of golf across the street. We were familiar with the Friendly's chain and expected good food and ice cream. We were pleasantly surprised that this location was even slightly better than some of the others. I had a turkey club super-melt and a vanilla Fribble. Both were great. We liked... More

Better service than most, but the menu is the same as all the rest. Clean, quick service. Acceptable for a quick meal.

I stopped in for a late lunch. Though the meal took a while, the Swiss patty melt was good and fresh. The fries were warm and a little wilted. The service was like the name says, friendly. The bonus ice cream sundae was so good.

Got a take out ice cream, first bite a scoop fell in my lap. The ice cream was just stacked and not pressed down. Went back inside to get it fixed and nobody was around, had to wait five minutes before anyone came out front.
