We went there to have some ice-cream and coffee and tea. The ice-cream was very good at a decent value for price. So far so good, now getting to the issues which made this only a mediocre visit. My wife ordered a coffee, which tasted awful. It was very weak, it tasted more liked water with a hint of coffee... More

It is a chain (in case you didn't know), which has operated since 1935. I love their ice cream (but you can buy that in the supermarket now). I like the big two do breakfast. You can get eggs any style (they will do omelet style for 85 cents extra), meat (choice of bacon, sausage or ham) and french toast/pancakes.... More

This is a typical Friendly's. Grand kids like the ice cream. The food is acceptable and the service is usually fast and courteous. Price is typical of he average no-frills sit down restaurant.

The ice cream had ice crystals in it and service wasn't 'friendly' at all. Ice cream flavours are just average.

Been a couple weeks since last visit. Not a soul in the restaurant that i recognized. Apparently the entire staff & management has been replaced by a batch of 20 somethings with high pitched whiny voices. The food was what was expected & the staff was OK. But the coffee, UGH!. I have had better day old coffee at 3:am... More

It's a good place to take kids to. The menu is pretty extensive and the food is pretty average.
