Go there often, good burgers and ice cream, price is right for seniors. Seniors get a 10 percent discount with free sundaes...can't beat it.

The restaurant feels dirty, the food awful except maybe breakfast. The take out ice cream selection has gone way down, will avoid at all costs

I have been twice this summer with my friend. We meet there at 5....no rush or crowding. The staff is always courteous , letting us just sit and chat until we are ready.We both order salads , usually with chicken or turkey. Burgers and fries are not on our food list , but they look good going to other tables.

Seems all they know how to do right is serve ice cream at the walk-up window. What a horrible experience. Burnt cheeseburgers, cold fries, gross coleslaw, absolutely tasteless food. Seems like they just want to get you in and get you out as quickly as possible so they can seat more people. Rude staff, crowded, messy and noisy. This meal... More

I ordered a two-scoop sunday with one topping - it was tiny! They must have measured the scoops with a teaspoon.....Couldn't even find the second scoop - for $4.24, I could have gotten more ice cream in an ice cream sundae from McDonald's. Never again - from now on, I'll get the sundae from McDonald's and save myself nearly three... More

Updated store, very busy, well run. Food is Formula Friendly's but well executed compared to their peers in central CT...many of which have recently closed. Having worked at one of the Middletown stores back in the 1960's, Friendly's holds a special place in my heart. The Naugatuck store is worthy of that "place".

After several visits over the years the service has yet to improve. They are very slow, unorganized and cant keep up with the volume of customers that come into the establishment. the kitchen looks to be small and the staff spends a lot of time socializing with one another and not doing their job. I am fed up and very... More

I don't get to a Friendly's very often, but decided to give it a try. The restaurant was a bit short staffed on what was apparently an unexpectedly busy night. But the staff stayed friendly and was working very hard to keep up. We were served reasonably quickly. The food was tasty.
