Just don't do it...

Like with all Friendly's, if you have 2 hours to kill, this is the place for you! Everything takes forever to make and the food quality is horrible. I would say the only thing worth eating is the ice cream.

Horrible service, slowest waitresses, food was small portion and below average. So much marketing material on the table there was no room for my coffee, let alone the breakfast when it finally showed up.

I have been going to various Friendly's restaurants since I was a kid. My experiences are mostly positive and this particular Restaraunt visit was no different. My kids love this place. They are very family friendly. Kids get crayons and a paper to color on. They also have a kids menu with pictures of each meal to go with it... More

The restaurant lives up to its name when it comes to service. The food is what you'd expect; we go because Mom enjoys getting out.

This is a typical quick service sit down restaurant. Staff is usually very friendly, Food is usually good. Price is relative inexpensive. They offer kids meals that are priced good with kids sized portions. This is a step up from the fast-food chains, but dont expect top culinary choices. Kids always leave with an ice cream balloon and a smile.

Looking for fast alternative dining to eating at the casino prior to a WNBA basketball game, Friendly's hot the spot when we wanted a quality meal with limited time.
