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 Completely outdated and DIRTY.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

Since I was staying at a nearby hotel, I took the kids here as an alternative to the hotel breakfast. I remember going to Friendlys as a kid, and thinking it was the best food and ice cream place and being impressed even up till a few years ago. We were seated right away. The table and seats were full... More

Im sitting in Friendly's parking lot writing this review. Friendly's has really gone down the tubes. I walked up to their outdoor window to buy a ice cream come. Was the only person at the window. July 21 around 9:00pm. I stood there at the window for about 7-8 minutes. The staff inside looked at me several times and looked... More

Its a friendly's. Everyone knows the drill. Always good, clean, polite service and a standard menu. In Danbury, it's steps from the hotel so very convenient.

I have children. Children love Friendly's because they have no clue what good service and good food should look like. They get crayons and bizarre tiered wire serving trees. We adults get pissed off at the bad service, the poor value and the inevitable heartburn. I really don't like this place at all. I get forced to visit from time... More

I was looking forward to having dinner here at Friendlys after traveling all day since I grew up going to this restaurant and loved it. After being away for a number of years I really expected more. The staff was unfriendly and not as diligent as they should be. The food was terrible and cold. I got a hot fudge... More
