This Friendly's was better than any prior experience with this restaurant chain. We were seated immediately. Service was prompt and efficient. The menu choices are soups/salads/grilled sandwiches with french fries. You can also order ice cream sundaes or other ice cream treats. It was inexpensive - a plus in the tourist areas.

The food was very good and the ice cream was amazing! There aren't many of these restaurants left so I'm glad we got to try it.

1st time ever at this place. Almost left since a family and self waited forever to get seated. Not a friendly approach but more as "what do you want"...The Philly Steak sandwich was average. The one thing that hit a nerved was the server pushing me to have a Sunday. I had a Diet soda because I am type 1... More

This is one of the best Friendlys I have been in.. the largest too. The staff is so friendly and they go out of their way for you. They are open late too. Crystal was extremely friendly and a joy to have for our server. What ever we needed, we "got it"! You can always rely on a good meal... More

We enjoyed a few brekfasts and an evening meal whilst staying at the Avanti Resort next door. The food was lovely and reasonably priced. My only critisism is having to wait a bit too long to be seated. A special mention to Marilyn, she's an excellent server.

Live up to their name. Food was amazing too. Reasonable prices. Staff were lovely. Just wish they would let you finish your meal before bringing the bill.
