Higher priced run of the mill family fare ! prices have risen more than quality. Ice cream quantity not generous with a high price tag.

Service was fast. We ordered from the $5.55 meals and it was good with just enough food. I am not giving them a perfect score for the fact when we walked in and waited to be seated no one was there to acknowledge us. By the time a hostess arrived to seat us, three waitresses had walked right past us... More

We stopped at Friendly's today because we were short on time, and ended up having some of the best Fish and Chips I've had in a while. The decor is fresh and bright, and the menu is surprisingly extensive. I had a little trouble decided what to get, but finally ordered the Fish & Chips and I was pleasantly surprised.... More

We stopped for a quick lunch and were impressed with the cleanliness and food. I ordered a Reuben which is usually a bit greasy , This one was not plus it was very delicious . Our waitress was a delight and very friendly . My husband ordered a burger which he said was very good and not greasy .

I am writing this review to share details on my incredibly poor experience at Friendly’s #1237 (Lebanon, PA). On Friday August 28, at around 6:30pm, we called to place an order for pickup, as we have several times in the past. The first thing I noticed was that it took an excessively long time for someone to pick up the... More

Typical chain establishment, with the typical chain food. Nothing to brag about and nothing to gripe about the food. The food has good flavor, and is hot when served. I have yet to go to this establishment and be seated right away, or receive our food in a timely manner. Everything is so slow here, not sure why. We have... More

Hubby has attached himself to the grilled chicken sandwich and fries. I like their crispy chicken salad, hamburgers, and ice cream.. and they serve Coke... not Pepsi. Friendly's holds memories for me. Mother and I would go to Friendly's in Palmyra and share the Crisp Chicken Salad. Great place for hamburgers and obviously ice cream. Also one of the better...

Small and crammed booths. Food average but can be overlooked with a Sunday treat. Service from young underpaid inexperienced staff the norm. Not a bad place when on a budget.

Food is ok service is ok price is not bad. But it's another place that remodeled and lost all there cozy charm (fireplace included) in favor of that horrible industrial style. Yuck. I don't go there anymore.

The new Friendly's inside and outside is a remarkable changeover. The new design and seating arrangements is really established for the family, but it is also outstanding for seniors. Seniors get 10% off of any order on the menu plus a free sundae for dessert. Now add to this the best clam strips since Howard Johnson's went out of business... More
