When in the area have to stop for ice cream sundaes. The service could be a lot better though. Almost impossible to get water refills. Waitress not cheerful.

As always when on the road looking for a family meal with atmosphere and value you can't bet Friendly's. Also to top off the meal try a Banana Split you will never forget it. Waitresses are down home gals with a great smile. Their hamburger's are delicious

Dinner was the best I've had here ever. It's been redone inside, feels really clean and the waiter was very nice. Good burger, chicken fingers, etc.

We stopped here because we wanted a quick bite to eat! They do not know what quick means. We were there a total of 1 hour and 18 minutes. Way too long for a restaraunt like this. There was a table that just walked out the night we were there because it was taking too long to get their food.... More

If you are visiting Stockbridge, this place is only about 5-7 miles away. It was clean, food good and the breakfast { mon.- fri.} is half price. Super 8 motel is across the street..very convenient .

Decor hasn't changed since it opened. Waitress was pitiful. Took a full 45 min to get our food served. Then another couple min to get silverware. Food was so-so. They should can the tablet computer on the table and hire competent help!

We stopped here for dinner after shopping at the Lee Outlets. They have a large selection of items on the menu and a great kids menu (that includes an ice cream treat)! Try the hunka chunka peanut butter fudge - my favorite!

I don't usually review takeout, but I have to say something about this one. Hopefully management reads it. I was traveling for work and wanted a salad to go to take back to the room and keep working. Not a lot of local choices, but I used to eat at Friendly's a lot many years ago and figured that would... More

Most everyone from the New England area has visited a Friendly's once or twice (likely more) over their lifetime. And, I am no exception. We visited recently on a weekday, early evening, prior to hitting the MA Pike on a local trip. Food was standard Friendly's fare as I remembered it to be. Juicy burgers, good Fish & Chips..it's Friendly's...you... More
