Disappointing after giving it a second change. Ordered eggs over easy, 1 egg was over cooked. Had a slice of french toast with the meal. It was like rubber, obviously reheated. Given 2 slices of bacon and toast that was so cold the butter wouldn't even melt on it. Last time, no more chances. The guys will have to dine... More

When I was a little kid, my parents use to take my siblings and I to Friendly's all the time. It was one of our favorite places to eat. Many years later I still go to Friendly's, but unfortunately I don't know how much longer I can say that. Over the past couple of years Friendly's just went downhill. And... More

Our kids would give Friendly's 10 stars. Whenever we go out to eat, they want to go here. This location is smaller than other ones that I have seen and it's a little outdated. The staff is always friendly and service is good. The size of the restaurant makes it impossible to come here with a big group or team.... More

Very good service and the food was great!!! Breakfast ended and we missed it by a few minutes. Personally, I don't like this policy, as we went there for the breakfast and not lunch or dinner. The world is trending toward breakfast all the time - follow! A strong loving atmosphere just minutes away from the Big Apple!!!

The seating area is quite small, but the food is decent. They have regular specials to stay competitive with the restaurants in the area.

Royal Banana Split was to die for....Loved it. It was a bit pricey but worth the weight gain. Great Friendly environment. If you are looking for a restaurant that is quiet don't go to Friendly's lot and lot of kids which equals = Noise. LOL!

Friendly's has always held some of my most fond childhood memories. I can remember our neighbor saying to my mom, "lets take the kids to Friendly's" and we'd all pile in the car, or walk if the weather was really nice, and go to Friendly's for some ice cream. They make some of the best sundaes and banana splits, and... More

The best burger and ice cream place that I have ever eaten at. The ice cream sundaes are very good and the food is very hot.
