I love to eat at Friendly's occasionally - cheap, reliable, and decent portions. The Friendly's in Bennington is not great. The service tends to be inattentive and the food comes out sloppy. Better off going to Blue Benn or one of the other great diners...More

I paid with my debit card and my waitress Andrea added an extra $5 tip to my bill, AFTER I gave her a 20% cash tip! Check your bank receipts if you plan to eat here or pay the bill with cash only!

After a short wait we were seated in two booths and the divider was removed. Dinner came rather quickly and my burger was as expected at a Friendly's. Ice cream was good, too.
