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.

We enjoy ourselves whenever we go. We mostly go for ice cream but have enjoyed dinners there too. We'll go back!

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

I will begin by saying that the service is slow but the waitresses are friendly and do their best. They are currently hiring as they are obviously short-staffed. The food and prices are worth the wait though. My husband and I really enjoy their supermelts. They recently had a special that included a free happy ending sundae with each supermelt... More

Enjoyed their special... free happy endings sundae with purchase of a super melt sandwich, which proved to be an excellent choice. Very friendly staff as well.

Staying at the Hampton Inn, easy walking distance to this restaurant. Fast Friendly Service. No Friendly's close enough to home to visit regularly. Maybe not "A" quality food but tasty and a good enough value. Would not hesitate to visit here on next trip.

After checking in at the Hampton Inn located behind the restaurant, we decided to take a walk and get some ice cream for a treat. We waited inside for close to 20 minutes without ever having anyone take our order (the same was happening at the outside window), so we left and will remember to NOT try going there when... More

I stopped by Friendly's for some ice cream but ended up with one of the best hamburgers I've eaten in a long time. I didn't want a large dessert; just a taste, so my server made me a scaled down version of one of their ice cream desserts.
