After my hour long drive to Danbury during which I missed the highway exit and needed to go out of my way to turn around to head back toward Danbury, I was anxious, tired, and very hungry. I remembered there was a Friendly's in town, and I had been missing their breakfasts, especially the pancakes, because the Friendly's in my... More

What a lovely experience I had at my visit to Friendly's. The host was welcoming and chatted with us a bit. The waitress was also very nice and speedy with our drinks. Our food might have taken a little bit long, but it came out fresh and hot, so was worth the wait. I'd highly recommend this friendly's if you... More

There's a Chilis next door, go there instead. The service was pretty bad as she got my moms order wrong and it took her 15 minutes to have the bun switched on her burger. Then my salad came with a quarter of an avocado... that had half of it taken out... and the remaining part that i got was literally... More

I used to eat at Friendly's years ago and always liked it but just haven't been there for a long time. This was a great experience. There was an excellent variety of good food at a good price and specials that were a steal. The staff was friendly and efficient. I highly recommend giving Friendly's a try if you are... More

IMHO The best ice cream creations and friendly and courteous staff. Food is good for reasonably priced chain restaurant. Much better comparable than DQ Grill and Chill again IMHO

My family and I went here, mostly because Kids wanted chicken fingers and ice cream. We got inside and sat down at far table. I looked around and saw half of the tables still had their menus. We waited and waited and waited. Saw 1 server take a tables order while rest waited. Finally after 15 minutes we said were... More

Terrible Service - waited 45 minutes tonight for food to come out after being seated - took 15 minutes to pay the check even!!!! They must have lost 1/2 of their business (50 people) - cause there was not enough waitresses to seat people once they came in - tables went empty for long time - Resturant was severely under...

This has to be one of the worst Friendly's. Let's start with the initial entering of the building...you get overwhelmed by the stench of dirty carpets, and old food. Completely outdated and DIRTY. The seat had a 12 inch rip on the booth we sat in. Dusty, sticky, and worse...the FLIES! Flies were all over the restaurant. We had a... More
