Friendly's is always great for lunch. I've never had a bad meal there, and their Ice Cream is very good. The "all you can eat shrimp" is my favorite. Top that off with a 3 scoop hot fudge sunday, and your in good shape. The food is fresh, the service is good, and they don't leave you broke.

Stayed at a local hotel that offered a less than desirable breakfast offering so we hopped in the car and went exploring. First place we ran into was this Friendly's. The service was great and the food arrived as ordered with no issues. Staff could have been a bit more attentive with coffee re-fills but to her defense, she was... More

Can't really evaluate the food as it is prepared to a formula so it is exactly what you are familiar with. What makes this one better is the young lady who waited on us on Sunday the 4th of Sept. 16. She was very personable and efficient. It was as if she really enjoyed being there and the regulars that... More

This Friendly's has gone down hill over the years. The service is bad. The food bad, We took our grandson here this week and it took almost an hour to get our food..."grilled cheese and a hot dog"......nothing elaborate. We never needed extra drinks but yet she kept bringing over glasses of soda while we were waiting and it just... More

My Dad and I recently went to Friendly's for breakfast. At the time we went, it wasn't overly crowded; still plenty of seating available. We waited over 30 minutes for our food. We didn't have any special requests - ordered exactly as was stated on the menu. Our waitress said the kitchen got backed up. Once the food arrived, it... More

I would love to be able to right a review of the food and service, but we never received the food. We arrived at 8:50 in the morning hoping to get breakfast before heading to a meeting 5 minutes up the road. We ordered at 8:56 one scrambled egg breakfast with toast and an egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. There... More
